I am another decendent of Jonah, to the best of my knowledge. I believe my gg-grandfather, Russell, was born in CT about 1792 as second child of Jonah and Hannah.I do not have access to any original source documents and have heard also he may have been the 5th of 11 children of Jonah and Hannah, and born in Ohio in 1798.I would like to learn anything more you may have about William Riley's brothers and sisters and their lives.
My g-gf was Charles John, born in 1841 at Mento, Lake Co, OH. My gf was Byron De La, born in 1872 at Louisville KY, and my father, Russell, was born in 1908 at Woodland CA.
I think you may be a bit off on thinking Thomas of England is linked to Matthew 1.Matthew's parentage and likewise the same for his wife Mary has, to my understanding, never been credibly established.
