      John, was she the sister of your grandfather or ggggrandfather. The Ruhana Green that married John Riddle had oldest daughter named Mary Riddle and her only daughter was Eliza and Eliza was raised by John and Ruhama because Mary died when she was only 8 years old. Her father was in the pen, at this time, for killing a man and Eliza lived with John and Ruhama part time and was let out to other families, as a "house girl". She was recorded as "Eliza Riddle" but this was not her given name.

      Eliza married Joe Stovall and their oldest daughter was Rosa Stovall and was my grandmother. I am 70 years old (young) and I know you said you were retired, so the grandfather sounds like you are older or reincarnated (just joking).

      For other info to who ever may read this, My grandmother, Rosa Stovall was the older sister of "Cat Stovall". Folks in Paint Rock Valley new "Cat" as the biggest bootlegger in the area.

      I do not know if "Cat" and his grandfather were ever in the pin at the same time but it was very possible because of their lifestyle.

      Just remember one thing, John, these folks are also your kin to you. Good or bad me must love um all.

      Cuz, Bill

      The only spelling that I have, "Ruhamia", and for that matter all the
      nformation that I have was copied from Mabry Green's copy of the family tree.
      he was the child of William and Charlotte and the sister of my grandfather,
      harlie Cleveland Green. I have not pursued this family line at all since they
      eft the valley before I was born.

      Clay & John, Is there some record of Ruhama Green/Riddle that would verify the
      pelling. The only way we know who she was comes from the fact she was with John
      iddle or the Green Family.
      I was told, she was part Native American and her picture indicates this.
