Mr. and Mrs. Calvin M. Riddle

Journal by charlesoshields

Calvin M. Riddle was born 1859 in Gray Court Laurens County SC. Mr. Riddle met Carrie Rampley at Friendship Baptist Church in Gray Court. They were married at this church at a young age. Carrie Rampley was born 1864. There was lots of love in their home. Both Mr. and Mrs. Riddle loved the Lord and the Church. They moved to Greenville at one point and they lived on Pendleton Street and members of Pendleton Street Baptist Church. In 1943 Mr. and Mrs. Riddle were married 64 years before he died he died in same year at the age of 84. Mr. Riddle always had a garden every year. He loved tomatos very much. They would bring grandaddy tomatos when he got bad off and he would not eat them but he said they were nasty. Seems that the children all loved him and the children would call grandaddy Santa Claus because of the snow white beared that he had. I shall never forget my grandmother Riddle as was walking down the hall she could see them fight on the T.V. grandmother prayed that this would stop it did the T.V blew out. When grandmother was 90 years of age she said if you boys will get me those apples i will bake a pie we did and she baked the best pie that i have ever eat. When Mrs. Riddle was sitting out on the front porch she was 94. She kelpt looking up at the sky my daddy said Mrs Riddle why you keep looking up. Grandmother said Denny i'am going home he said you will be ok. My daddy did not understand what she was talking about she was talking about her home in Heaven. Grand mother died that same year 1958.

If you are researching the Carrie Rampley and have done a census search, I suggest you use Rampey, Rampy to also search. We are Rampeys and have found our name with and without the e, and with the l. Good Luck
