I am attempting to locate descendants of Jerry and Hannah RILEY. Jerry and Hannah's children are: Arthur, Cora, Samuel, James (Ephraim?), Amanda, Mariah, Maggie, Calvin, Bertha, Ada, and Leona. Hannah was the daughter of Susannah HILDERBRAND and Lewis TAYLOR. Jerry was the son of Riley MCNAIR and Mariah (?). Jerry and the children are accepted Cherokee Freedmen, Hannah was rejected. In 1900 the family was residing in Chelsea Town, Cooweescoowee District, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory. The family is enumerated in the 1910 US Census for Oklahoma in Nowata county and Jerry is listed as 57 years old. His daugther Cora married Samuel WAGONER and they at least two children: Oval and Oak.
Hannah is a half sister to my ggrandmother, Frances HILDERBRAND MCNAC, daughter of Stephen and Susannah HILDERBRAND. I'm waiting to connect.
