      Subject: Re: Ackerman Riddell Connection Hi Sandi, Regarding James Gordon Riddell, yes I also have him as a child of James Riddell and Catherine Ackerman. Sorry, I had overlooked him when typing you the information on my last e-mail. James Gordon Riddell, born March 2, 1902 in London Ontario, Canada, Reg. no. 025944 02, died December 22, 1923 in Washington D. C. USA

      James Dickson Riddell's first child was actually a son, born to him and his first Wife Jane Pope. When I was researching the Riddell family tree for Charles Riddell, my daughter's Father-in-law, I found James and Jane on the 1881 census with a son James 4 years of age. On his birth registration this child is registered as James Dixon Riddell. When I researched the 1891 census, James Dickson Riddell was registered with Wife Catherine, which caused me to research the death registrations to see what happened to his first Wife, Jane Pope. I found she died June 28, 1881, probably just shortly after the census of that year was taken. James and Jane's son James was also missing on the 1891 census with Catherine, so I checked the death registrations for him. He also died at 4 years and 11 mos. of age on January 7 1882, about 7 months after his mother. It is listed on the death registration that he drowned in a water cistern. The informant of death for both Jane and James was William Riddell bookkeeper on Maitland Street, in London. This William was a brother to James Dickson Riddel and he was married to Annie Fitzgerald. James' Father's name was also William, but his profession was a tailor, so the fact that this gentleman was a bookkeeper bears out the fact that his brother William was the informant of death for James first Wife Jane Pope and his first son James Dixon Riddell. So James Dickson Riddell actually had 12 children in all, but 11 were from his union with Catherine Ackerman. Hope this information helps Gayle
