|I am researching all direct family lines back to their connections with the "Old World".|
I am especially interested in tracing the parentage of JOHN NICHOLAS RILEY (1856-1932) who is said to have been an orphan born in Warrick County, Indiana. Later he moved to Stoddard County, Missouri. He was married to Mary Elizabeth Tooley.
Secondly, I am interested in finding the ancestral lineage of WILLIAM DUDLEY BRANCH (1869-1940) who was born in Trimble County KY and moved later to Butler County, MO.He was first married to Ida Marilla Christian, then to Mary Ellen Till (aka Mollie Foster).
My maternal line traces to Germany, most arriving on these shores in the mid-nineteenth century.
My paternal lines are in this country back to the days of its founding.I would love to exchange information with any who descend from any of these lines.
