About Our Family Research

I have been researching my Riddle/Riddel (spelling changed in the early to mid 1900's. My family is from Jackson County, and surrounding counties but mostly from Grantsville in Calhoun County. My great grandfather was John Gaylord Riddle b.1878 and he married Rose Elizabeth Howard b. 1885. They had 12 children. My grandmother's parents were Susan Amanda Knotts (Ravenswood, WVA) and R.B. Howard (b.Knox County, OH) RB Howard was a school teacher resided most of his life in Jackson County and died in 1907.
John Gaylord Riddle was the son of Benjamin Franklin Riddle and Madelia Ferrell. I have put together a family tree with as much information as I have to date. I welcome any information that can be passed on regarding these families. My ancestors are Riddels/Howards/Knotts/Ferrells/Goffs and more.
