I have not listed Benjamin, Jesse or Orange because they are shown to be sons of other Riddle lines or in the case of Orange Riddle, b. 1769 d.aft 1850-? Ill [s/o Cornelius Riddle who had Rev.War Bounty land in Illinois]Orange is shown with war of 1812 war bounty lands in Mo deeded on 10 June 1859 to John A.

There will probably be objections to my findings,and I do not wish to offend anyone but if you disagree, please offer census, land, wills or any official records as rebuttal to the records I have presented.

Thank-you and my best regards to everyone,
Willie Gail Riddles-Rotzoll
