    • [Broderbund WFT Vol. 2, Ed. 1, Tree #1859, Date of Import: Dec 20, 2000]
      How M . M. Riddle met Sarah Jenkins Ginevia (Geneva) Angilyne (Angeline) Victory (Victora) Elen (Ellen) Riddle. This is my (Opal's) grandmother. Her spelling is in parenthesis. She was born March 21, 1861. She was fond of saying "I was born in 1861, the year the war begun!" Civil War. Her mother died and she and her father moved in with her grandparents (John and Sarah Riddle). They lived there until she was 13 and then they moved to Arkansas - but in the meantime - When she was 7 years old, she was outside playing, she saw a little girl and her mother coming. She ran in to tell her grandmother someone was coming and she was told to go let the gate down and invite them in.

      They came in and the lady, after visiting a while, said, "I heard there was a doctor that lives here and he needs a wife." So, that's what happened. She became Wife Number 2.

      How M. M. Riddle Became a Doctor. My Grandmother has told us that her Dad's (M. M. Riddle's) house burned and at age 65, he went back and took the test or whatever you have to do to get your doctor's license, and he passed with flying colors. He was a very good doctor. Mrs. Opal Phillips, 2208 W. Bettis, Pocahontas, Arkansas, 72455, February 16, 1991.
