Do you have any information on their children , names birthdates?I found three Williams children listed on the 1870 van buren co. census living with the Samuel Riley and his wife, and believe the Ephriam Williams listed is my grandfather's father, but need to learn the relationship to Samuel Riley and his wife Nicey, to the Williams children.
Jewel, the following Riley family in the 1870 van buren co. census had living in their household three Williams children, one was an Ephriam Williams who I believe was my grandfather's , father. I don't know if the Williams children were siblings and don't know who their mother was, but have been told that the father of Ephriam Williams was Riley Williams, Ephriam was said to have been born out of wedlock, I don't know Ephriam's mother's name, but wonder if she had a connection to Samuel Riley or his wife Nicey.
Here is the 1870 census listing the family:
Samuel Riley age 32 b. TN Nicey " 30 b. TN Mary " 10 b. AR Jalina? " 6 b. AR Hugh " 4 b. AR Ephriam Williams age 6 b. AR Elvira Williams " 4 b. AR William M. Williams " 1 b. AR Ningen Riley " 1 b. AR
I would like to find out Nicey's maiden name, she can't be the mother of both sets of children,note, there is two 4 year old, two 6 year old and two one year old children, but is she the mother of the Riley children or the maybe a second wife of Samuel Riley's and the mother of the Williams children? Or what is the relationship of the Williams children to this Samuel Riley family?
Any help appreciated. Thank you very much for your reply. Sandra
