In Reply to: Amanda Dingess, Logan, West Virginia by Cora L. Riddle Moore of 143

I know that there was a daughter Mae Riddle who passed away about 5 years ago that was the daughter of Sol and Amanda Dingis Riddle. Amanda Owned property at the head of Harts Creek at one time as I located the deed at the Logan Court House. If I recall correctly it was deeded to her by her parents but can't say for sure as it was a while back. There was another daughter Faye Riddle Rimer who was adopted out after Sol died and is still living in Huntington West Virginia. I met Mae Riddle several times while doing research and she was one of the sweetest people I have ever encountered. Somewhere I have some photos of her. After Sol died Amanda was sent I believe to Huntington due to mental illness or just because she was unable to care for herself financially and the children were sorta farmed out to families. There was also a brother Arthur who never married and lived with the Kirks in that area after the War till his death. Sol was from Pikeville Kentucky the son of Frederick Franklin Riddle and Margaret Johnson. Fred left Margaret taking Sol and another son Lawrence with him moving to the head of Harts creek to the property that Jessee Blair now lives. Fred remarried Emma Taylor and raised a family with her which is how I decend. Fred was the son of Isom Riddle who was the son of Asa son of Tyre son of Samuel son of basil. They decend from Riddles from Marilyn who relocated to Stokes county North Carolina then into Wise County Virginia which Fred left and went to Pikeville Kentucky. Isom his father went to Letcher and Perry county Kentucky after his wife died and he married his housekeeper. I have lots if you want to contact me. Plese note that a lot of people are connecting Lawrence Riddle with Emma Taylor as his mother which is incorrect. I have written documentation that Margaret was his mother. Also a daughter Clarisa was the daughter of an affair that Fred had with a Nancy Wright as per Clarisa's social security application.
