Dave, Good to hear from you. I notice you use the Ridout spelling. This Rideout vs. Ridout thing is a fascinating point to me. How can I get the book you mentioned? I would be very interested in any documentation relating to Elijah that you might have. Also, would you be willing to share your own ancestry. For example, do you go back to Elijah? Could you send me a GedCom? Thanks.
