You probably have some of this info already. I think I sent you some of it a while back. Matthew is listed on the 1860, Henderson Co., Tn. census as Matthew Ridly. He is living next to Edmond and Jane Gawf(Goff), who are the same people Elias W. Ridley, 15, was livng with in 1870. On the 1860 census, there is a child, E.W. Poll(?) age 5. It looks to be Poll. There is also a Joshua Poll, age 8. Both children were born in Mississippi. It is possible that E.W. is Elias W., but I don't know about the name Poll. I may be misreading it. In 1865 Matthew Ridley and Edmund Gauf paid taxes in Henderson Co. In the Henderson Co. records 1867 - 1896, Matthew is listed in insolvency. He is listed in Insolvent Estates records as Mathew Ridley, dec., Colly Ross administrator, Mar. 28, 1872. (The date is the date of settlement report.) Edmond Goff, dec., M.A. Mannes administrator, Aug. 4, 1884 is also listed. There is a Mathew Ridley buried in the Chattanooga National Cemetery, with a date of death as Mar. 19, 1865. Also another Mathew Ridley in that cemetery, who was born in the 1950s and died in 1990s. Possibly a relative.
I have tried to come up with a connection to the Goff/Gauf/Gawf family, but can not find anything.
I will keep looking and let you know if I find anything else.
