Shelby County Reporter, Thursday, January 18, 1923, “The county officials elected last November were installed last Monday … Probate Judge, L.B. Riddle; Circuit Clerk, W.T. Taylor; Sheriff, J.J. Faulkner; Tax Collector, J.L. Isbell; Tax Assessor, W.E. Harrison; Tax Adjuster, E.A. Turner, Treasurer, J.S. Bird … L.B. Riddle is the first democratic probate judge Shelby county has had in nearly thirty years. He defeated G.W. Weaver after a vigorous campaign, the result of which was not known until several days after the election. Judge Riddle was born and reared on a farm in Shelby county, two miles west of Wilsonville. He attended the public schools in his community and later engaged in several lines of business. At the time of his election he was a traveling salesman for a wholesale house in Talladega … Judge Riddle is a member of the Baptist church, and takes an active part in all church affairs. He is also a Master Mason and a member of other fraternal organizations.”
