I am currently recording all the names and dates of all the markers in the Blackstone Valley.In the St. Paul's Cemetery in Blackstone, there are some matches to the names you are looking for.
Under the spelling of "Riley" I have a Thomas with no dates listed, unfortunately.I also have a couple of Bridgets but they seem to be married into the Riley family or never married.
Under the spelling of "Reilly" I have a Thomas who did marry a Bridget, with two children that match the childrens' names that you listed.Their dates are:
Bridget (Hughes): 1848-1916
Thomas F: 1868-1934
Unfortunately, no Elizabeth around the childrens' dates comes up.
I know this kind of goes against the ages as depicted in the census you listed.If I find anything further as I continue my project (over 25,000 names and counting) I will be sure to let you know.
