About Isaac Riddle

http://mountainmeadowsmassacre.org/appendices/appendix-c-the-militiamen

Riddle, Isaac (1830–1906), Private, Company H, Fourth Platoon, Harmony. Isaac Riddle, an Indian missionary from Pine Valley, was in Cedar City on Tuesday when he was suddenly rushed home by Isaac C. Haight, who told him there “was a fuss with the Indians,” and he “had better go home and attend to [his] affairs.” Riddle traveled with John M. Higbee’s group of men that left Cedar on Tuesday. Riddle may have witnessed the killing of two emigrants near Leach’s Spring. He said he traveled with the militia group as far as Pinto before turning south toward his home in Pine Valley. Although Riddle did not make it to the site of the Mountain Meadows Massacre, he may have been sent to look for other emigrants who had gone to make pine tar.
