teen children,* nearly all of whom were born in Douglass. He was a Pro-
testant in religion, and was wont to tell of the persecution his Huguenot
ancestors had endured in the old country. His French Bible, sabre, camp
utensils, military accoutrements, and other personal effects were in exist-
ence fifty years ago, but their present whereabouts is unknown. He died
about 180(3, and was buried in Douglass. The historian of the town in-
forms me that the old family residence was known as the " Riddle House,"
when he was young. About 1850, and not later than 1855, a grandson,
of Boston, visited Douglass for the purpose of settling the estate, and to
sell the house and farm which had remained in the family, and on his re-
turn described the house as being a large, rambling affair, situated on an
elevation on the "Mail Road." The estate was sold to John Floyd, — at
that time connected with one of the railroads in that section, — who cleared
off the timber for the road. At this time there was a dispute among
some members of the family as to the propriety of spelling the surname
"Riedell." The grandson, — John H. Riedel, of Boston, — after consider-
able search unearthed the old gentleman's sign and found his grave-stone :
the name was spelled "Riedel" in both instances. Evidently this man
was a direct descendant of some of the ancient houses of Ridel, in Nor-
mandy. This is the only branch in New England known to have spelled
the name in the German form, except a few small families recently from
Saxony and Bavaria.

* There are several descendants of John II. Riedel now living in New England, —
some in Boston. — among them John H. Riedell, formerly editor of the Union,
Manchester, N. H.

R. I., in 1811, after which he returned to his native town, and five of his
ten children were born there. He removed to Boston in 1823, and lived
in that city until his death, in 1843. He was a carpenter and builder
during his residence in Douglass. His widow is still (1884) living, at
the age of 88 years.

in Waterford, Ireland, where he married and had issue two sons, of whom

*When Lindsey Riddell, of Nantucket, Mass., was a young man he was in the
port of Glasgow, Scotland, in command of the ship "Falcon," and while there he
went with the consignee to the city, where, when waiting at the hotel for the re-
turn of his friend, he observed the name "Lindsey Riddell" on a sign across the
street. The store was that of a haberdasher, and being in want of some small
wares Captain Riddell went over and made some purchases. The clerk asked his
name for the purpose of making a bill, and when he learned it was Lindsey Riddell
he gave his customer a discriminating look and asked what part of the world he
was from. The reply was " Mf ssachusetts, North America." He then inquired
what information Captain Riddell could give of his family, and after hearing, stated
that his father was an aged man ; that many years before a favorite brother of his
father went to Ireland, since when no news had reached the family in Scotland con-
cerning him, and he had no doubt, from the account given by Captain Riddell,
that this long-lost brother was his grandfather. Captain Riddell made an appoint-
ment to visit the old gentleman on another day, but returned to his ship and failed
to keep it, — a neglect he always afterwards regretted. From records of marriages
of Riddells with Lindseys, in Scotland, there was at one time a prospect of making
genealogical connections between them and the Nantucket family, but further in-
vestigation of the family history showed the hope unfounded.

served his time as an apprentice to Samuel Storer, rope-maker. He settled
permanently at Nantucket, and kept a hardware store and carried on the
manufacture of ropes and cordage. His house was on Fair Street. Mr.
Riddell was a portly, fine-looking gentleman, always dressed in Avhat was
then called "small-clothes." He was of medium height, and of fair, fresh
complexion. In manners he was urbane and dignified in his general in-

indeed a typical gentleman of the "old school." Died Oct. 20, 1823,
