I am looking for any information on the Riddle/Ridley family starting with Obadiah Ridley/Riddle. I think he married atleast 3 times.
(My Line) 1st Wife: Nancy, married abt 1845 and had 2 children, Peter 1845 and Saml 1857. They moved to Hawkins, Tn. I think nancy must have died and Obadiah must have moved from Tenn as I can not find him in the Tn census. My GGG grandfather is Peter Ridley/Riddle. (the name has been spelled both ways in this line)
my line runs as so: Obadiah, Peter, Tom, Henry, Charles Benjamin Riddle to my mother, Linda.
Then i believe my Obadiah moved to Paoli, Indiana and married 2 more times.
2nd Wife: Elizabeth Crouch Davis married 1866 and they had a set of twins: James and Mary F in 1867. Elizabeth must have died during childbirth based on the 1870 census.
3rd wife: Martha Jane Webster married 1872. No children. he is buried next to Martha in Paoli, Indiana.
The reason I think the Paoli, Ind Obadiah Riddle is the same person is because I located old Riddle family photo's that were taken in Paoli, Ind by photographer G.W. Finley and these photos belonged to my Riddle family members in East Tennessee. Coincidence?
If anyone has interest in this line or information, please contact me. I have posted all the photo's on ancestry.com also for viewing.
The photo's are of John and Alice Ridley/Riddle from about 1900 maybe.
