Classification: Query
Surnames: RIDDLE, WEST

I have been reseaching these lines for about 5 months.
Moses A. Riddle b: 3 April 1835 d: Nov 1894 Svensen, Clatsop, Oregon

He married: 24 Sept 24 1858 to Mary Esther West in Clack Co.,Iowa She was b: 19 June 1840 in Indiana/Ohio is my guess. She died: 20 April 1929 Svensen, Clatsop, Oregon

She wrote a extentsive Diary of the trip to Oregon from Iowa to which gives names and dates of people. In it she brings out that of a Mother Gillbreath (name could be that of Nancy) in Iowa to which would be Moses mother for this being a 2nd marriage.

Of the 1st marriage to a Riddle was: Micheal b: 1832 ,
Mose b: 3 April 1835 , Moses's name could also be that of
something that corasponses with that name I would think. Daniel b: 26 Aug 1837 his sibblings were born in Iowa. Of the Gillbreath's it mentions that of the following: Jimmie, Henry, Joe d: June 1899, Johnny, Maggie, Nellie,Till (Tillda), Will (Wilfred), Alfred, Curtie. Spellings could be different for these.

The 1870 Censes for Denison, Crawford, Iowa that of Daniel and Moses's families.

I would love to hear from some one in the State if Iowa that could help me with these families.
