A whole lot of Ridleys. There needs to be a Ridleyville down there somewhere.

When will we see a President Ridley?

Si,
Ridley's pretty much infested North Alabama and the top half of Georgia. There is/was a Ridley, a tv repairman, who lived in Ringgold, Georgia, who was accused of holding his wife a prisoner for 25 or so years, finally starving her to death. He was found innocent in a court - the same thing happened to his mother-in-law who lived with them.

There is a "Ridley Community" in Chatsworth (Murray Co)along with a Bridge ;) I am related to the Ridley that held his wife hostage, a very sad affair. Jody Ridley the Nascar driver is also my cousin.

Darrell,
Thank you for reading and writing a comment about the Ridley Posts.

I'm sorry, I don't know anything else these Ridleys, I told in the posts everything I know, or "spilled my guts" so to speak.

I am interested in the Ridley guy who held his wife hostage. We are talking about the one in Ringgold, Ga., aren't we? Any thing you can tell me about him would be appreciated like who his parents and grandparents were and so on.
Thanks.
