About Our Family Research

My father was Robert Weldon Riddle of Cleburne Texas. He was born to Willie O. Riddle and Amy May Birchfield Riddle. He was the fourth child born to Amy, but birth certificate reveals the first two children were born alive, but deceased at daddy's birth time.

his oldest sibling, third child born, was Welmond (Bill) Riddle. Doris Marie followed, then Pauline(Polly)LaVerne, then last was Afton Faye.

My grandfather Willie was shot to death in the family home by his father in law, John Birchfield over two dogs at the supper table, belonging to John, I believe. The story goes that Willie got upset over the dogs at the dinner table and possibly kicked at the dogs. John being a man given to anger, retaliated behind a loaded gun, taking the life of my grandfather while his children we playing outside.
