  • Notes 
    • 1. DNA proves Matthew is descended from John Riddle b. 1680 in MD.
      2. Lived in Jackson Co., AL. 1830 thru 1840 near Randolph Riddle and sons. 
      3. Also living in Jackson Co., AL was Burgess Riddle b. 1791 in Loudoun Co., VA, the son Benj. Riddle and Nancy Giles. Burgess was descended from John Riddle b. 1680 and was married to Eliz Easley. Harmon Riddle, son of Randolph (also descended from John Riddle) was married to an Eliz Easley and his brother John was married to Judith Easley.
      4. Matthew's brother James also appears in the Jackson Co., Alabama census. 1850 census states that James was born in VA while Matthew was born in NC.
      5. All of the Riddles listed in the 1830 and 1840 Jackson Co., Alabama census records were related except for Samuel Riddle and he could very well be another brother to Matthew as he was also born in VA in the same time period as Matthew, James and Jeremiah.
      6. Uriah Riddle, son of Jeremiah married Matthew’s daughter Tabitha Adeline.
      7. Two of Jeremiah’s daughters married Cooper brothers while Matthew married a Rhoda Cooper.

      Is this the father of Matthew Riddle b. 1798?
