Notes for WILLIAM SPILLER 'WILLIE' RIDLEY:
Spiller's trade was farming, saw-milling, and blacksmith. He also enjoyed making wood crafts.
Spiller suffered with severe respiratory problems and combined with the conditions of our country at the time, due to the economy of our nation and hardships of farming, he was unable to support his large family. The older children had to leave school and seek employment.
Spiller and his two youngest children, Vivian and Margaret, went to live with his daughter, Mildred and her husband Kelly Tryan of Trion, where Spiller spent his remaining years. Ellen lived with the other children and helped with their families. He died at Mildred and her husband Kelly's home.
