William Riddle, b. abt 1740 d. Spring, 1781, was a Loyalist in the Am. Rev., who lived in Montgomery Co., Virginia, and was hung at Wilkesboro, Wilkes Co., North Carolina. This report offers possibilities as to who his parents were, identifies his seven surviving children and their spouses, and traces the decendency of Isaac William Riddle - one of the seven children -who went to Texas. All Isaac's known children and their spouses are identified. Isaac's son John, who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and went West to Utah in 1850, is documented as well as his wives. Order a copy of this report for $25.00, address above.

In addition, I am researching the Elmer, Bowers, Fleming, Richman/Richmond, Shoemaker, Erety, Perry, Cheesman, and Graham families who lived in Cumberland and Salem Counties, New Jersey from the early 1700's into the 20th century.

Any information will be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have on these lines.
