Make the search without his first name - Ridenour:United States:Ohio:Paulding - and you will find Capt Mathias Ridenour in Saint Paul Cemetery, Paulding County, Ohio, along with his fourth wife.

Pat, Thanks so much. Have tried the findagrave website but they do not
show a Mathias for Paulding Co. OH. How did you search for it. Was he
buried in Paulding or Allen Co. Again thanks, Marj
