On all fine days he takes his lunch and spends the day, and does not come home until late supper time.”1 Ridley Creek is a tributary of the Delaware River that flows twenty-one miles from its source near Frazer, East Whiteland Township, Chester County, southeasterly into the Delaware River at Chester, Delaware County.
