      Served in the Civil War. John was Deputy Tax Collector under his brother, James A. RIDLEY who was the Tax Collector for Jackson County, AL in 1901.

      Wife #2: Matilda J. BROWN: Married January 7, 1892. Matilda was the daughter of

      Family tradition is, John's father sent him to camp with his brother George during the Civil War. John was
      only twelve years of age but large. John was captured by the Yankees and given the task of loading horseshoes. John ruptured himself and was returned home to his mother so she could care for his
      injury. A yankee doctor went along home with John to explain to his mother.

      John was a farmer by trade. On the 27th of April 1888 he made his wife Frances Ellenor ( MARSHALL)
      RIDLEY a " FREE DEALER".
