Riddell, Mortimer S, Dd
Riddell, Mortimer S., D.D.
a Baptist minister, was born at East Hamilton, N.Y., May 8, 1827. After pursuing secular business for several years, he studied at the Hamilton Institution, graduating in 1858, and was soon after ordained pastor in New Brunswick, N.J., where he took high rank as a preacher, and his eight years' ministry was eminently successful. His labors, during a revival of remarkable power, broke down his health, and he was obliged to suspend his ministerial work. All his efforts to regain his wasted strength proved futile, and he died at Ottawa, Kansas, February 1, 1870. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclop. page 988. (J.C.S.)
