Go to my webpage and I can take you back several more generations. You ladies can also join the Daughter's of the American Revolution because of Mathias Ridenour and also the Bent sisters' great grandfather Silas Bent Sr. was in the American Revolution and participated in the Boston Tea Party.I can take you back further on the Bent side too.
Email me and request my PowerPoint presentations on the Ridenour and Bent families.
If you are Ridenours, you guys are related to some famous people.You are related to:
Norman Rockwell, Lucille Ball, Mary Baker Eddy [the "Christian Science" founder], Robert Frost, Julia Child, First Lady Lucretia Rudolph Garfield, President Millard Fillmore, Robert Louis Stevenson, Laurence Olivier, George Orwell, Robert Morris, Robert Treat Payne, First Lady Grace Anna Goodhue Coolidge, Gregory Peck, First Lady Elizabeth Kortright Monroe, President Rutherford B. Hayes, Samuel Morse, Clement Moore, John Steinbeck, Edgar Lee Masters, Spencer Tracy, First Lady Ellen Louise Axson Wilson, Walt Disney, Poet E. E. Cummings, B. F. Skinner, French artist Eugene Delacroix, Katharine Hepburn, and 7th cousin twice removed T. S. Elliot. That is odd because Elliot's poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" has always been my favorite.
