The biography for Patricia Riddle is empty. What can you add?


  • First-hand information. Entered by Patricia Riddle at registration.

I grew up in a small coal-mining town in West Virginia. Elbert was also know as Gary Hollow & #7 (named for the mine). My dad was a coal miner and my mother was a stay-at-home mom.

I am 1 of 7 living children of Elmer & Virginia, the youngest of the 4 girls.

My paternal family (Riddle) comes from Ashe County NC. My Rose family does as well.

I started this journey to find relatives and to finally discover who my maternal grandfather was. This is still in the works but I think we are close as others are testing for me.

I am willing to share any family information that I have in hopes to help someone else who is desperately looking.

Hello Patricia!

You've been a member for a few weeks so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions? Most of us have questions after all that information!

I want to help! Click my name, send me a private message or ask in the comment section of my page. Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

My paternal family (Riddle) comes from Chatham County North Carolina. (My 4th Great Grandfather was John Thomas Riddle, Sr.) Prior to Chatham County was Scotland. Do you know your Grandfather Riddle's name? I am somewhat new to WikiTree and have done most of my research on another site.

Welcome back Patricia

I am pleased to confirm you as a full member, and welcome you to the WikiTree family as your contributions will go a long way to joining the world together.

I would suggest starting with the New Member How-To pages, they will save you a lot of time and frustration.

I am here to help answer any question you have, no matter how trivial you may think it is. There is no such thing as a silly question. Add as much information as you can, it all helps to turn a “name” back into a person. I hope you enjoy the site

Happy tree climbing

Hi Patricia,

A warm welcome to the WikiTree family! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used and it is FREE. WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.

Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!

We’re really glad you’re here. More importantly, have fun growing your family tree and connecting to persons with the same interest.

Ludwig :)
