poor health he gave attention to mercantile pursuits, which were success-
fully carried forward to the time of his death, which occurred on Dec. 31,
1859. Mr. Riddle was for many years earnestly devoted to the cause of
Christ, laboring faithfully as an elder and local preacher in the Methodist
Episcopal church ; he refrained from joining the ministers' conference on
account of ill health. He was also an ardent supporter of the cause of
temperance, and early connected himself with the Washingtonians ; he
has delivered many very stirring addresses on the subject of temperance.
All his spare hours were devoted to the advancement of the cause of
Christ, the furtherance of the temperance movement, and the general good
of his fellowmen. I copy some words from a letter written by his pastor
soon after his death, which prove Jhe high estimation in which he was held
by those who were intimately acquainted with him : —

" His beautifully consistent Christian character and ardent piety, combined with
a faith in the promises of God that never flagged, have, ever since I have known
him, been a subject of my highest admiration. Such indeed was my feeling, that
whenever I was with him I felt a stronger sense of security than anywhere else ;
his presence was an impulse to my religious life. Oh, that I could have been with
him when his last word was spoken, and have caught the last look from his sainted
eyes !"

Mr. Riddle passed away in the triumphs of the faith he had so long pos-
sessed, leaving the blessed influence of life's pious example as a consolation
to his family far more precious than gold that perishes. He left a widow
and two children, of whom hereafter. Mr. Riddle is said to have had two
sisters and one brother, but all are now dead.

Walter-W. Riddle 3 (2), eldest son of Walter 2 (1), was born in the
year 1851, and is unmarried. He is connected with the Boonton Iron
Works, in Boonton, N. J. He says in a letter to me, " As for myself and
family (that is mother and sister) I am not ashamed to lay claim to a char-
acter and reputation untarnished." His mother says of this son, " He is
the soul of honor and truthfulness."

Willie Riddle 3 (1), second son of Walter' 2 (1), was born in 1855, and

parents are supposed to have come from Scotland, and were probably de-
scended from the Riddells of Roxburghshire, as Walter Rid dell-Carre in-
formed me of offshoots of that family who settled in Ireland at different
times.*

Robert Riddell 2 (1), second son of Hugh 1 (1) and Mary his wife, was
baptized at Ballaymeath, Ireland, May 22, 1633; married Sept. 12, 1658,

May 10, 1637 ; married Dec. 4, 1658, to Elizabeth Maudit, and had issue

"after. Mr. Riddell died Nov. 3, 1674.

ters, of whom hereafter. See " Riddells of Coleraine, Massachusetts,"
in this book. Mr. John Riddell died Jan. 3, 1737. I think Mr. Riddell
must have married a second wife, as dates of births of children seem too
late to be the issue of this union. Baptisms may not have been adminis-
tered till children were some years of age.

Mary Riddell 2 (1), daughter of Hugh 1 (1) and Mary Wilson, was bap-

[Pennsylvania Branch.]

Robert Riddle 1 (1), allied to many other branches of the family of
Scotch-Irish birth, lived on a farm in Ballymony, not far from the River
Bann, County Antrim, Ireland ; came to Pennsylvania with his son in
1835, and settled at Allegheny City, where he and wife died in 1840. He
had issue several children, of whom hereafter.

SECOND GENERATION.

James Riddell" (1), a son of Robert 1 (1), was born in Ballymony,
County Antrim, Ireland, and settled in Virginia many years ago. No
particulars.

Charles Riddell 2 (1), a son of Robert 1 (1), was born in Ballymony,
County Antrim, Ireland ; married Elizabeth, 'laughter of John Dinsmore,
in 1820, and had issue seven children, of whom hereafter. He bought a
farm at Brady's Bend, about sixty miles above Pittsburgh, Penn., to
which city he had emigrated in 1835, and died there in 1844. After Mr.
Riddell' s death the family returned to Pittsburgh, where the mother
probably died.

♦There was a James Riddell, who married Katherine Scott, Jul}- 18, 1686; she
died May 23. 1733. A Mrs. Mary, wife of James Riddell, son of Hugh and Mary
Riddell, died Nov. 3, 1664. All recorded with the preceding, and without doubt of
the same connection.



RIDDLES OF BALLYMONY, IRELAND. 197

John Riddell 2 (1), a son of Robert 1 (1), was born in the town of
Ballymony, County Antrim, Ireland ; married and settled at Meath Park,
County Londonderry, Ireland, where his eight children were born. He
came to America between 1850 and 1855, and died at Pittsburgh, Perm.,
Aug. 25, 1854, in his sixty-fifth year. His wife predeceased him June 2,
1842, in Ireland. He was a farmer.

It is presumed there were other children of Robert 1 (1).

THIRD GENERATION.

William-Dilismore Riddell 3 (1), eldest son of Charles 2 (1), was born
in Ballymony, Ireland, April 11, 1823 ; married Margaret, youngest daugh-
ter of Rev. Robert Hutton, of Meadville, Penn., afterwards of the M. E.
Church, Lebanon, Tenn., and had issue three daughters and one son. Soon
after coming to America be engaged under Dr. J. L. Reed, then in charge
of the Methodist Publishing-House, at Pittsburgh, Penn., and while there,
in consequence of his letters falling into the hands of others of the same
name, changed his surname from " Riddell " to " Riddle," and others of the
family followed suit. In 1854, in company with the Wells brothers of
Wellsville, Penn., he started a whip-factory at Pittsburgh, where he died
in 1864. His family removed to Tennessee a few years after, and his wife
died at Lebanon in 1880.

Matilda Riddell 3 (1), eldest daughter of Charles' 2 (1), was born in
Ballymony, Ireland, July 15, 1825; was married to James Small of Bloom-
ington, hid., in 1852.

Samuel Riddell 3 (1), second son of Charles 2 (1), was born in Bally-
mony, Ireland, June 3, 1827 ; married Jennie, daughter of William Boyd,*
a prominent merchant of Philadelphia, in the summer of 1854, and had
issue five children, of whom hereafter. He early became a compositor on
the Pittsburgh Daily Gazette, and rose by degrees to business manager,
editor, and part owner of that paper. He was ten years postmaster of
Allegheny City, having received his commission from President Lincoln.
He was a member of the Presbyterian church, and when the war of the
Rebellion broke out had a large class of young men in the Sabbath-school.
When President Lincoln called for three-months' men, Mr. Riddell felt it
his duty to respond, and immediately telegraphed to Washington to know
if he might leave his assistant in the post-office, and go into the army,
provided he could raise a company; the answer was, "Make ready and
come." In less than a week he was on his way to the front, — his class
among the first to follow him, — and went out with Knap's Battalion,
captain of Company C. The sudden change from office duties to active
held service brought on a disease that followed him ever after, hastening
his death, which terminated several years of intense suffering, endured in
the spirit of a true martyr, in 1877, in Charleston, S. C. During the
period of his political career he was instrumental in the erection of the
public building in Allegheny, and in the improvement of the park. Mr.
Riddell was six feet in height, broad-shouldered, symmetrical of form ; had
good complexion, brown hair and eyes, and full, well-dressed beard. Two
months after the death of Mr. Riddell his widow moved to Hoddonsfield,

* William Boyd was the youngest of a large family in Antrim, Ireland, related to
the Riddells there. He was shipwrecked at the age of eighteen, when on his way
to America, and washed ashore at Newfoundland. He settled in Philadelphia;
possessed executive ability, firm religious principles, aud soon took his place among
the successful merchants of Philadelphia.
