    • Riddle Researchers,

      Here is the info I promised from my searches on Mary East, wife of Asa. Most of this info came from death records in Lee City, VA. and Campbell Co., VA. Mary died 2 miles from where I live now, and is buried in the Jones-Riddle family cemetery.

      Mary East born Oct. 12, 1791 To Isham And Mary Eddes East. Mary Eddes born 1760 daughter of Joseph Edded born 1724 And died Aug. 4, 1805, And Sarah Leftwich born 1730 And died 1805 In Campbell County, VA. Mary East Married (1) Matthew Childress, (2) Jonathan Harrold (3)Asa Riddle In 1812. Mary And Asa's Children. There were 12.

Walter b. 1836, Walter Lived In Lee Co. and moved west in 1860's, I believe. I also have a record of Mary with a son born from one of the first 2 marriages, I will have to locate that record. I can find no further info on him either.
