Hi, Carla, Thanks for all the information.
It's certainly nice to have some place to
start.
The first apperance of Ruth was when I found
Samuel B Todd in an 1850 census on the micro-fish (misspelled?) of the Mormon Church files. Ruth was listed as his wife , but no last name. So I sent to Indiana for the marriage certificate of Samuel B. Todd and
Ruth (no last name). Back came the certificate dated August 25, 1946. for Ruth Ridlin and Samuel B. Todd, and signed by the Circuit Court County Clerk at Greensburgh in
Decatur County, State of Indiana, Henry H.
Talbott He had issued the license; and it was
also certified by John P. Bartley, a preacher of the Regular Baptist Church, that he joined
them together as husband and wife on this date. Their daughter, My grandmother,
Elizabeth Todd was born in 1948 in Decatur County. Indiana. Subsequently, I found Ruth
Ridlin's name listed as mother of the bride on Elizabeth Todd's second marriage
certificate with the surname Ridln spelled with "lin" rather than "lon". Do you think that this line of the Ridlon's changed the spelling of the name for some reason - Just
as it was changed from the original Redland
name.

Thanks again for the email with the most welcome information! If you find out any further information on the Ridlon/Ridlin Family or if you wish to respond to this
letter - please send it to my email address.

Best Wishes for A Happy Holiday Season!!!
Dee
