Saw your message and remembered I have a letter that was my grandmothers in which there is mention of names and the fact they came from Scotland. I will try and find the letter and get back with you. Please e-mail me if you would like for me to get back with you.

The first ancestor I can trace in America is William Riddle who was born in 1760 and died in 1840. He was naturalized, a Presbyterian, and I'm assuming he came from Scotland. I've always been told that the Riddles were Scotch-Irish. He may be part of the Thomas Riddle family. Can you give me any information that might be useful? His naturalization papers stated only that he had been in the U.S. since "at least 1790." He lived and died in Kortright, Delaware County, New York, southwest of Albany. Thanks!

My Thomas Riddle came to America as a young child, about 1750. I have been lead to understand that he came from Scottish ancestry, but came from Ireland. This is not proven,however. I don't know where he landed, but he is rcorded a having married in Massachusetts. There is a record of this. I don't know anything more about his family or siblings, but if your William is related, he must have been the child of one of Thomas' siblings I would think. Keep me posted if you learn anything. I will too.

Hi Tamera,

My earliest ancestor, William Riddle, lived and died in Kortright, New York, south east of Albany, on the Delaware River. I'm not aware of any Kentucky relations, although it's possible that one of his siblings migrated that way. My direct ancestors migrated - slowly - west, ending up in Idaho. Other names in my family are William P. Riddle, Matthew Lawson Riddle, John E. Riddle.

Well, I don't recognize any of those names. My grandfather was Andrew Harrison Riddle, Grandmother, Laura Ethel London. There children, Bessy Lee Riddle Smith,Gladys Esther, Carl Dean, Elmer Lawrence, and my Dad, Walter Allan. Bessy's husband was Leo Smith. My Grandpa came from Hillsborrow, KY. But my branch of the family has been in Ark. since the early 1900's. And, I know that we still have kin in KY, and Tx. Some other last names in my family are, Gardener, Royce, or Joyce. And, of course, London. Well, it was nice talking with you! Let me know if you hear anything else, okay.
