I have an ancestor who immigrated from Germany: Jacobus Roehling settled in Bergen Co, NJ, abt 1750, changing his name to John Riley. He d. abt 1790, and left at least one son, Augustus Riley.
There are a number of Riley's in Wilmington, New Castle, DE census' from Germany, one was Jacob Riley listed in the early census'.
