David Riddle 1 (1), parents unknown, ancestor of this family, is sup-
posed to have lived in Washington County, Penn., but where he origi-
nated, or of his history, I have learned nothing reliable. Some think he
was a connexion of Judge James Riddle, of Chambersburgh, but I find
no proof ; others have supposed this family to be closely allied to the
Riddles in the city of Cincinnati, O., but the connection is not proved.
There are representatives of this family in Wellsville, O., who could un-
doubtedly furnish the connecting links, but they will not render assist-
ance. Unquestionably some reader of this book will make connection
with other Pennsylvania branches. Mr. Riddle had issue four sons; pos-
sibly daughters.

ford's defeat," by Indians, near Sandusky, in 1782, and she was married
to Mr. Riddle in 1788. His mill was near the Caldwell farm. It is said
