Prince Georges County, MD land records (Liber HH, Folio 98) show that on April 22, 1785 (recorded April 18, 1786) John Riddle of Prince Georges County, planter, made a deed of gift to his son James of Prince Georges County and his wife Ann of a negro girl named Dark and after the decease of James & Ann the negro girl to go to granddaughter Dorcas Riddle, daughter of James. Prince Georges Co., MD land records (Liber JRM, Number 4, Folio 383) also show that on March 19, 1796 (recorded May 20, 1796) James Riddel of Washington, MD (now DC) made a deed of gift to his son Benjamin Riddel also of Washington, MD (now DC) of a negro girl named Dorcas (apparently the same slave as the 1785 deed). This deed also mentions James’ wife Anne and wife’s daughter Dorcas Harding. (Harding should probably be Hardman as Dorcas Riddle and Joseph Hardman were married before this deed was made.)

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with James:
