  • Notes 
    • Though small in stature, Augusta was a true pioneer, working hard to help provide for her family. A favorite story passed on to a granddaughter, told of the time in Iowa when Indians still lived all over the Midwest. Two female Indians on horseback rode up to the Riddle house. They were mother and daughter and Augusta invited them in and offered them each a chair. They asked Augusta for some meat, so Augusta got a slab of bacon and offered it to the older Indian woman, who held up two fingers and said "Two pieces!, Two pieces!" Augusta, with the knife still in her hand, took back the slab of bacon and promptly cut it in two and gave a piece to each Indian.  [3]
