after, four in number. In 1729 his surname was found spelled "Ridell";
on May 10, 1750, it stood on a petition for a charter for Bedford, with
those of his two brothers, Gawn and John, spelled "Riddell," and in
1752 it was spelt "Ridel." In Patten's journal the name is always "Rid-
dell." Patten was a Scotchman, — or of Scottish extraction, — and un-
derstood the proper spelling of the surname. None of this branch of the
Riddell family seem to have adopted the surname "Riddle" until subse-
quent to 1790.

Hugh Riddell was selectman in Bedford, N. H., in the years 1754 and
1755. The following is a facsimile of his autograph : —

SECOND GENERATION.

Dea. Hugh Riddell" (2), eldest son of Hugh 1 (1) and Ann Aiken, was
born in Bedford, N. H., in August, 1740. He married Jane Morris, and
in the year 1763 removed to Coleraine, Mass., where he settled on a farm,
and remained until within fifteen years of his death, when he went to live
with his son Samuel, in Charlemont in the same State. He died June 5,
1817, aged 77 years. He was a sturdy man, and a sound orthodox dea-
con of the celebrated priest Taggart's church. His physical strength was
remarkable, and it is said that the parson and his deacon, after refreshing
the inner man, would frequently try each other's muscle in friendly wres-
tle, till they would pant like two bullocks; in these encounters they han-
dled each other roughly, but always in the best spirit. Mr. Riddell had
few equals in his day, where physical power was demanded. The town
of Coleraine, where he lived, like that in the north of Ireland for which
it was named, was noted for its large men. Dr. Adam Clark, the distin-
guished commentator, writes that he had seen many men in Coleraine,
Ireland, whose height was seven and a half feet, and some whose stature
was eight feet. Mr. Riddell's wife, by whom he had issue nine children,
is supposed to have died at the home of her son Samuel, in Charlemont,
but I have no record. See account of descendants further on.

William Riddell 2 (1), second son of Hugh 1 (1) and Ann Aiken, was
born in Bedford, N. H., in the year 1742, and was lost at sea before the
removal of the family from Bedford to Coleraine, Mass.; unmarried.

Robert Riddell' (1), third son of Hugh 1 (1) and Ann Aiken, was
born in Bedford, N. H., May 11, 1744; married Jane McGee, — she was
born in Deerfield, Mass., Oct. 23, 1747, — and removed from Coleraine to
Ripley, Chautauqua County, N. Y., where he died Feb. 20, 1822, aged 78
years; his wife predeceased him, at Otsego, jST. Y., April 5, 1805. They
had issue ten children, of whom hereafter.

Ann Riddell 2 (1), only daughter of Hugh 1 (1), was born in Bedford,
N. H., in 1747 ; married to Jonathan Wilson, and had issue.

THIRD GENERATION.

Letitia Riddell 8 (1), eldest daughter of Hugh 2 (2), was born in Cole-
raine, Mass., and died when ten months old.

Rev. William Riddel 3 (1), eldest son of Hugh- (2), was horn in Cole-
raine, Mass., Feb. 4, 1768 ; married, Sept. 4, 1797, Lucy, daughter of Rev.

Samuel Hopkins, d. d., of Hadley, Mass. She was half-sister of the wife
of Doctor Emmons, and own sister of the two wives of Dr. Samuel
Spring, of Newburyport, Mass., and of Dr. Samuel Austin, of Worcester,
Mass. (afterwards president of Vermont University, at Burlington), and
also sister of the wife of Rev. Leonard Worcester, of Peacham, Vt. Mr.
Riddel labored on the farm with his father until within one year of his
majority, when, being desirous of obtaining a college-education, he pro-
posed to his father that if he would grant him the remainder of his time,
he would relinquish all claims to his share of the parental patrimony in
favor of his younger brothers, and seek to acquire an education by his
own exertions. This proposal was accepted by his father, and the son
thereafter supported himself principally by teaching school.

When he entered Dartmouth College his mother gave him an outfit
of bedding, and his father made him a present of the colt on which he
rode to Hanover, and which he sold for his own benefit. This was all the
aid his parents were able to give him to assist in his education. He
showed remarkable application in his studies while at college, and grad-
uated in 1793, with high honors in his class. He afterwards studied divin-
ity with Doctor Burton, of Thetford, Vt., and with Doctor Emmons, at
Franklin, Mass. His first pastorate was at Bristol, Me., commencing in
1796; second settlement in Townsend, Vt., in 1806; third pastorate in
Whittingham, Vt., in 1818. He was a man of thorough scholarship,
strong, logical mind, retentive memory, a sound Calvinist, an able sermon-
izer, serious and earnest, but not eloquent, in his style of delivery. His
reading was extensive, and his mind, in riper years, was a store-house of
knowledge. His nephew says, " I remember Uncle William very well in
the last years of his life, when he rode the old, long, lank sorrel up and
down, with immense saddle-bags under him, from which he would pull
and scatter tracts as he passed taverns and naughty boys. He was ava-
ricious, and saved large sums of money ; but he was a true, honest man, a
good old uncle, and at the last gave considerable money to the Tract So-
ciety. For my part he sent me a large number of the New England Cate-
chisms to distribute, but I found them very unpopular in the West."

His wife died in 1813, from which time until his death, — a pei'iod of
twenty-six years, — he remained a widower, keeping his family together until
his children were educated and settled in life. He died in South Deerfield,
Mass., Oct. 24, 1849, in the eighty-second year of his age. Mr. Riddel
adopted an orthography unlike any other of the family, in consequence of
reading the name in the poems of Robert Burns, where the name of Cap-
tain Riddell, a great favorite of the poet, was spelt with only one I. Mr.
Riddel supposed this to be the most pix>per form ; but the mistake was
made by the publishers of Burns, for the Riddells of Glen-Riddell, repre-
sented by the patron of the poet, were a branch of the " Riddells of Rid-
dell," in Roxbm-ghshire, and they universally spelt the name with the
double letters. Mr. Riddel had issue seven children, of whom hereafter.

Samuel Riddell 3 (1), second son of Hugh 2 (2), was born in Cole-
raine, Mass., June 13, 1769; married Jane Donaldson, in 1794, and had is-
sue nine children, of whom hereafter. He purchased a farm, and moved
from Coleraine to Charlemont, Mass., in 1796 ; spent thirty years on "this
poor side-hill farm," and in 1835, when his family were all gone but
Thomas, he left the old neighborhood, and the graves of his father,
mother, and children, and went to Ann Arbor, Mich., where he spent one
year, and removed to Milwaukee, Wis., where he had a son and daughter.

In 1838 he settled on a farm at Wauwatosa, six miles from the city, where
he spent a happy evening of life, retaining all his faculties till his
death, which occurred Aug. 8, 1851, aged 82 years. His son says, "My
father was full six feet tall, and sometimes weighed two hundred pounds.
His head was well poised; he was a man of great energy, of quick appre-
hension, and regarded as one of the first men in his town. He possessed
a military taste, and was sometimes called 'General Jackson' ; he was gen-
erous to a fault, and lost much as a bondsman for others. With apparent
sternness was mingled the gentleness of a child. He was quick and sharp
at repartee." In a communication written by the same son previously, he
says, " My father was a man of the old stamp ; his frame was muscular,
and his mental faculties good ; his memory was so tenacious that down to
his death he could inform us accurately in regard to the different connec-
tions and branches of our family."

Jane Riddell 3 (1), second daughter of Hugh 2 (2), was born in Cole-
raine, Mass., in 1771, and died in her seventh year.

Mass., in 1779; died an infant.

Jane Riddell 3 (3), fourth daughter of Hugh 2 (2), was born in Cole-
raine, Mass., in 1779; died in infancy.

Thomas-Morris Riddell 3 (1), fourth son of Hugh 2 (2), was born in
Coleraine, Mass., July 15, 1782; inherited the homestead, and reared a
large family. His wife's name has not reached me. He was well edu-
cated, read extensively, was fond of poetry and music, a good singer, and
strong controversialist. He lost his property, and in 1810 moved to
Charlemont, Mass., thence to Rowe, where his family worked in the mills,
and where he and his wife died.

Elisha Riddell 3 (1), fifth son of Hugh 2 (2), was born in Coleraine,
Mass., in 1785; never married. He was a soldier in the war of 1812; a
bright, active man, of somewhat irregular habits. He was in the battle
of Plattsburgh, after which he lost his fingers and toes by frost; twelve
years subsequently he returned home and remained one year; he then
went awav and was never afterwards heard from.

FOURTH GENERATION.

Llicy Riddell 4 (1), eldest daughter of William 3 (1), was born July 17,
1798; died Oct. 31, 1798.

Rev. Samuel-Hopkins Riddel 4 (2), eldest son of William 3 (1), was
born in Bristol, Me., Jan. 2, 1800; married July 12, 1827, Harriet-Angeline
Ray, of North Haven, Conn., and had issue two children. His first wife
was born May 31, 1808, and died March 15, 1856. Mr. Riddel graduated
at Yale College in 1823; at Andover Theological Seminary in 1826, and
was ordained at Glastonbury, Conn., June 27, 1827. He was dismissed
from his first pastorate to accept the appointment of the American Edu-
cational Society, as secretary and general agent of the Connecticut branch
of the society, to reside at Hartford ; during the period of his residence
there, the Congregationalism a weekly religious newspaper, — the first in the
world that bore the name, — was started by an association of gentlemen,
and placed in his hands as editor. In May, 1841, he removed to Boston,
to become the secretary of the American Educational Society, in which
office he continued till May, 1850 ; having charge of the American Quar-
terly Register, published by the society until that periodical was discon-
tinued, in 1843. After leaving the Educational Society, he became asso-
ciate editor and part proprietor of the Puritan Recorder, a weekly religious
newspaper in Boston, for five years. The Congregationalist, of Hartford,
upon Mr. Riddel's leaving the editorship, had been merged in the Puritan
Recorder, losing its distinctive name; and in the meantime this name was
assumed by a new independent journal, started in Boston, which at length
bought up the Recorder, and has become a first-class denominational paper.
After severing his connection with the Recorder he was installed pastor of
the Congregational Church in Tamworth, N. H., where for twelve years
he labored in the ministry, until August, 1872, when he relinquished his
charge. He continued his residence in Tamworth some time after closing
his pastoral relations with the church there. He had married, secondly,
Oct. 7, 1862, Mrs. C. D. (Douglass) Evans, of North Conway. She was born
in Portland, Me., April 11, 1810; died in Conway, N. H, Jan. 28, 1866.
In 1875, he went West with the intention of visiting relatives, but was pre-
vailed upon to pass the winter with a family at Des Moines, who had for-
merly been in his parish in Tamworth. But when the spring came he took
cold, which developed into pneumonia, of which he died June 1, 1876.

The old ministers knew Mr. Riddel well, and those who were early
associated with him valued him for those qualities which made him a
faithful and successful editor and secretary ; for his accuracy, thorough-
ness, and order; for his keen interest in whatever was worth doing; for
a nicety of perception, taste, and sagacity, which were peculiarly prom-
inent characteristics of the man. He had all the marks of scholarship
which impress those of educational and scholarly tnste. Mr. Riddel was
a clear thinker and a strong, logical writer; he had never published books,
but his able articles, published in some of the leading papers and maga-
zines, always commanded attention, as the products of a master-mind.
He was a man of strong tendencies, — strong in affection and unfaltering

in his attentions and devotion to objects of his esteem. The interests
of an invalid daughter were a motive for his retirement to the quiet
country parish at Tamworth; here he tenderly watched over his child for
twelve years, during which he hardly left her for a day; he read to her,
lifted her, brought news from the outside world to her, watched her
as she sometimes passed suddenly into a world of terrible visions,
and with all this grew dull of hearing, so that he could hardly hear her
weak voice. Through all these years he lived thus without a murmur,
grateful for every little kindness, thoughtful for every one, steadfast in
his faith, unwavering in fulfilling all the duties of life. He grew pre-
maturely old under his cares, but never lost his cheerfulness. The only
shadows of despondency passed over him when he had laid this daughter
in the grave and resigned his charge. In a letter to the author of this
work, — a work in which he took a deep interest, — he wrote, ' ; My coal
is quenched."

As a sermonizer Mr. Riddel was not eloquent ; his sermons were pre-
pared with much study and care; were very practical, pointed, and clear,
delivered in a calm, social manner. His reading was extensive, and the
fund of information which he had acquired was almost unlimited. Social,
conversational, cautious, and with commanding gravity, he entertained
his friends. He was tall and spare, shaved clean, was quite bald, wore
glasses, and carried a calm yet pleasant expression of face. I believe all
who knew him rate him with the best of men. He was buried in Mt.
Auburn Cemetery; and the few friends who gathered at the chapel there,
drawn by love for the departed, were possessed with a feeling of thank-
fulness, that one who had endured so much was himself at rest.

William Riddell 4 (3), second son of William 3 (1), was born in Bristol,
Me., April 15, 1801; died April 24, 1801.

Lucy-HopkillS Riddell 5 (2), second daughter of Samuel 4 (2), was
born in Boston, Mass., July 31, 1830 ; died May 18, 1873, aged 43 years.
She was for many years afflicted with a nervous affection, and gradually
withdrew into a single room in the parsonage, excluded the light, closed
her sensitive eyes with a bandage, and lay thus year after year. She
suffered intensely in body and mind ; her delicate yet tenacious organ-
ization was the counterpart of a singularly gifted mind. Her solitude
was broken by letters from a few friends, which were piece by piece
conveyed to her by her father, who read to her a few moments each day,
when "she could bear it. Now and then some friend would call, and be
led groping into the dark chamber, to hold her hand and tell a few
tidings, and hear a few words from her thin lips in a fine, attenuated
voice ; her own communications were in pencilled notes, and oftentimes
palimpsests, to the unaccustomed reader, and in short flights of song or
meditation, often of great beauty. Sometimes she would take her pen-
cil and paper to write to a friend, painfully record a few sentences, then
lay her materials aside, and be able only after months to resume them
again ; she could then take up the same train of thought which had been
held by her wonderful memory. Some of the sentences she composed
seemed the product of an inspired and divinely-gifted mind, so sweet and
beautiful were they. To say that she was a strangely spiritual and won-
derfully gifted woman is no fitting tribute to her character and talents.
