RIDDELLS OF CASTLEFINN, IRELAND.

[Pennsylvania Branch.]

Thomas Riddell 1 (1), was a relative of the ancestors of the "Riddells
of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania,''' and of the "Riddells of Pitts-
burgh, Pennsylvania." He was engaged in business at Mar, Castlefinn,
County Donegal, Ireland, but was not successful, and having failed, soon
died, leaving a widow and four children in destitute circumstances; these,
at the solicitation of relatives, came to America in 1772, and for a time
made their abode in Baltimore, Md.

subsequently engaged in business at Philadelphia, Penu., and continued
there till his death. He became financially independent. Had issue four
children, of whom hereafter, and died about 1850. Mr. Riddell was well
known in business circles as an honest man, and substantial, respectable
citizen.

children, of whom hereafter. He died in 1854, aged 84 years. Mr. Rid-
dell became acquainted with another branch of the same stock in Pitts-
burgh, and at their solicitation changed his surname from "Riddell" to
" Riddle," a change which very much displeased his mother, but her impor-
tunities were not of sufficient force to cause him to return to his original
name, he having acquired property as James Riddle. He was a man of
sound mind and active, progressive habits, of large business capabilities,
and great force of character. He was highly respected. Mr. Riddle
probably had two wives, as the mother of Capt. Thomas Riddle, — his son,

a common sailor before the mast, and by his energy and strict attention
to his business, worked himself to the position of commander. He was
master of several merchant-vessels sailing between Philadelphia, Europe,

"North America," making the last trip on the year of his marriage, when
he quit the sea, going to Pittsburgh, Penn., where he took command of the
steamboat " Neptune," plying between that city and New Orleans, it tak-
ing three months at that time to make the round trip. He located his
family at Covington, Ky., and after three years' service on the "Neptune,"
removed to Cincinnati, 0., and engaged in merchandizing for a year ;
