I'd like to make a correction in your analysis of Earl T. Ridling.
Earl did not marry Etta Tong. Marietta was Earl's mother, she married Robert Wiley Ridling 6 April 1912. Etta was born 11 June 1892, her son Earl Talmadge, who is buried at Shady Grove Church Cemetery, was born 26 Sept 1916.

Robert Ridling and Marietta Tong had 7 sons, Herman, Thurman, Earl, Paul, Eugene, Leon, Leroy,(twins) and 1 daughter, Murvel. Most of the boys went to school at Cale, a small settlement SE of Prescott, and I have some of their photos, and I have been told, that if you picked a fight with one of these better be prepared to fight them all!! Earl Talmadge Ridling only lived 1 year and 11 months as he died 8 Aug 1918, and if I am not mistaken, I believe he died of a blocked colon. His mother, Marietta, fell and broke her hip, and she had hardened of the arteries, and lived 87 years and 11 months.
I have only just started rasearching the Tongs, so I do not have any info to offer. replies may be initated at
