William B. Liddle on Google Books

Never assume your ancestor or relative will not appear in some old book that's been digitized on Google Books.

This reference is from an 1875 annual report by the Board of Directors of Philadelphia City Trusts. The title page is partially reproduced in this blog post.

The item of interest was Wm. B. Liddle and his apparent brother John F. Liddle. They are listed as alumni of Girard College in this 1875 report with both men living in Philadelphia--Wm. B. as a salesman and John F. as an accountant.

My follow up research includes looking for additional reports that may provide additional information on the men.

Stay tuned.
