Capt. William Riddle, who became a reckless Tory leader. He was cap-
tured, court-martialed, and hung at Wilkesborough, Wilkes County, N. C,
in 1781. The oak on which this man, and Bill Nichols who married his
sister, were hung, is now standing on a hill adjoining the village. Mrs.
Riddle, who accompanied her husband on his wild marauds, was present,
and witnessed his execntion. There is a locality called " Riddle's Knob"
in Watauga County, which may have derived its name from this family.

this gave them advantage over many dealers. The Riddle brothers left
about 1820, and went to Kentucky or Tennessee. The township is now
owned by a New York firm, known as the "Kemble Coal and Iron Com-

Jacob Riddell, of White Hall Inn, Old Market Street, London, died

fractured his left limb in two or three places, and it was deemed advisable
to resort to amputation ; a mortification soon ensued, however, which
deprived him of life. He bore his sufferings with great Christian resig-
nation. His loss was sincerely lamented by his relatives and a large circle
of friends, by whom he was beloved.
