Buried Mount Olive Cemetery, Roane County, West Virginia per Find A Grave.
Prince Georges County, Maryland land records 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.) Researched by Roy L. Lockhart at the Maryland State Archives to expand original Riddle research by Dr. David Riddel, DDS, of Ft. Worth, TX.

Georgetown, Maryland From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the unincorporated community in Cecil and Kent counties. For the former Montgomery County city that was incorporated into the District of Columbia when the District was created, later absorbed into the city of Washington, see Georgetown, D.C.
Georgetown (Washington, D.C.) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Georgetown Historic District Georgetown is a historic neighborhood and a commercial and entertainment district located in northwest Washington, D.C., situated along the Potomac River. Founded in 1751 in the Province of Maryland, the port of Georgetown predated the establishment of the federal district and the City of Washington by 40 years. Georgetown remained a separate municipality until 1871, when the United States Congress created a new consolidated government for the whole District of Columbia. A separate act passed in 1895 specifically repealed Georgetown's remaining local ordinances and renamed Georgetown's streets to conform with those in the City of Washington.
In 1791 portions of Montgomery county (including Georgetown) along with portions of Prince George's County were ceded to form the District of Columbia.
