Hi Julie,
That's interesting, because I show that John (Oliver's brother) and Anna (Loomis) Hills had a son Elizur. "My Elizur" born 1768 in E. Windsor, CT and married Abigail Codding. He died in 1833 in Medina County, OH. I didn't track any of Oliver's children, so if he also had a son Elizur, it must have been confusing at family gatherings. <G>






      100. Deacon Hugh Riddell, born Abt. 1691 in Ballaymeath, Londonderry, Ireland; died February 25, 1775 in Coleraine, Franklin, MA. He was the son of 200. John Riddell and 201. Janet Gordon. He married 101. Ann October 24, 1739 in Concord, Middlesex, MA32,33,34.

      101. Ann35, born 1704 in Concord, Middlesex, MA36; died May 22, 1790 in Coleraine , Franklin, MA.

Notes for Deacon Hugh Riddell:
Hugh had nine children. He immigrated to America with his brothers, Gavin, Robert and John. He lived in Acton MA and moved to Londonderry NH.

According to the HISTORY OF BEDFORD, pgs 1045/46:

"Ridel, Riddell, Riddle, the latter spelling having been adopted by the Bedford branch about 1790, is an old name, derived from Ryedale, a dale or delle of rye, heads and sheafs of which appear in coats of arms of families of the name in Great Britian. Robert Burns, Scotland's bard, wrote of them:
      'My goose guil too rude is to tell all your goodness,
      Bestowed on your servant the poet,
      Would to God I had one like a beam of the sun,
      And then all the world, sir, should know it.'

"Bonnie Annie Laurie's mother was Jean Riddell. Upon one of the name was bestowed the 'Star of India,' the highest gift of the British crown for meritorious civil service.

"Gawn, Hugh, Robert, John, and Margery, children of John and Janet (Gordon) Riddell, Balleymeath county, Londonderry, Ireland, came to Londonderry, NH, and from thence to Bedford (except Robert, who did not come to Bedford) about 1738, and their names appear upon the petition for the town, 1750, including John Clark the husband of Margery; Hugh removed to Colraine, Mass., in 1763, with his children: Hugh, William, Robert, and Ann, all of whom were born in Bedford."

Information from Wanda J. Carlton:

These dates were taken from the respective gravestones. Those of Hugh and Robert are in Coleraine, MA. They both have double headstones with the inscription on one side being the wives. Hat of "Deacon Hugh" stands near the center of the yard; while that of Robert is near the northern extremity and is pretty much concealed in the rank briers.

Page 11: According to the "History of Bedford" the 3 brothers, Hugh, Gawn (sometimes spelled Gaen) and Robert came to this country about the year 1737, from Coleraine, County of Londonderry, in the north of Ireland, being descended from Scotch ancestors. They first settled in Londonderry, NH about the year 1748 and they removed to Bedford NH."

Page135, History of Bedford: HUGH RIDDELL, b. Ballymeath, Ireland, abt. 1691; d. Colrain Feb. 25, 1775, a[ge] 83, bu[ried] Chandler Hill Cem.; m. (1) Agnes ___; (2) at Concord, Oct. 24, 1739, Mrs. Ann Aiken of Concord, b. 1704; d. Colrain May 22, 1790, bu. Chandler Hill. He was 'of Colrain' in 1764 when he sold the last of his New Hampshire land, but there is no record of his owning land in Colrain.

Bedford at that time was called Soughegan East, as can be inferred from a petition to the Governor for a charter, cited in the History, dated 5/10/1750; signed among others, as quoted from the same authority, by John Riddell, Gan Riddell, and Hugh Riddell' in which case all the 3 spelled their name with double "LL"; and this I believe to be about the earliest written document we have on this continent, containing the authentic signature; and goes far to establish the true orthography of the name."

FTM Family Archives CD, Marriage Index: Massachusetts, 1633-1850, shows Hught Riddle married to Anne Aiken, 24 October 1739, Concord, Middlesex, MA, LDS Library Film #0823762

From "A History of Colrain, Massachusetts, with Genealogies of Early Families" by Lois McClellan Patrie, page 135: "In memory of Dea. Hugh Riddle died 25 Feb 1775, age 84 years." Hugh was "of Colrain" in 1764 when he sold the last of his New Hampshire land. No record has been found of his owning land in Colrain. McClellan Patrie quoted about Ann: "Mrs. Ann wife of Dea. Hugh Riddle who died 22 May 1790 age 86 years."

  i.   Deacon Hugh Ridell, Jr., born August 1740 in Bedford NH; died June 05, 1817; married Jane Morris February 06, 1766 in Greenfield; born Abt. 1740; died November 19, 1811 in Charlemont Village.
  Notes for Deacon Hugh Ridell, Jr.:
Information on Hugh's line from Karen Meany (meanwood@email.msn.com) May 1998.

Following is from A History of Colrain Mass. by Patrie:
Shay's Rebellion - was in 1786/87 in Western MA and one of the main towns involved was Colrain. The problem started when the men came home from the Rev. War and were unpaid for months - plus debts had pilled up while they were off frighting for freedom - then along came the lawyers and courts and started taking everything they owned, including clothes, oxen, cows, tools, household goods, etc., for payment. Finally they had had it up to here with the courts and lawyers and large groups of men formed together and refused to let the courts have trials. Then they decided they needed some firearms and went up against the Federal arsenal in Springfield - so a sort of battle ensued, which didn't last too long when 4 of Shay's men were killed - the rest decided to go home. Anyway, Deacon Hugh Riddle (a very great uncle of ours) went to get his son, Samuel, who had marched to Springfield with Shay. He hitched his horses to a sleigh and went in pursuit of Samuel, arriving in Springfield just as the attack on the arsenal broke up. Hugh found Samuel in the melee and they started for home to Colrain. But on the way they were halted as fugitives and locked into an upstairs room in a tavern to await investigation. "The good deacon, we are told, amply proved himself a man of peace by throwing one of his captors, who had offered him a gratuitous insult, through a window, demolishing sash and glass in the process, convincing the militant Samuel that all was lost. On the strength of this demonstration father and son were shortly released and allowed to proceed upon their journey." I guess no one else wanted to get thrown through another window.

According to A History of Corain, Hugh Jr. married Jean Morris, the daughter of Deacon Thomas and Jane Morris. Hugh Jr. bought a 50 acre lot in Colrain in the first division in 1765 and later two 2nd division lots. In the 1790 census he is recorded 3-2-3. He revomved to Charlemont after 1800. Hugh Jr. and Jean (Morris) had 9 children of whom 5 died young. Thomas and Elisha were twins. Elisha never married.
