Notes for JAMES HAMILTON RILEY:
DELILAH GIBSON RILEY
Delilah Riley made out her Lat Will and Testament on June 24, 1863. On July 9, 1863, witnesses came forth to swear to seeing her sign her mark to that Last Will and Testament.
Here are some excerpts from that will:
"I, Delilah Riley of Boone County, Indiana, being of sound mind and memory and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life, do therefore make, ordain and publish and declare this to be my last will and testament. Revoking all others. To wit: First I give and bequeath to my beloved son William Riley, one note which I hold on him calling for one-hundred and twenty five dollars, date September 1st 1858.
Also I will and bequeath to my beloved son William Riley a certain sorrel mare, now in his possession.
Also I will and bequeath to my beloved son William Riley, the care and collection of the notes that which I hold on, which she mentions dollar amounts and names.
I will and bequeath to my beloved son Jacob Riley one hundred dollars when collected of (name mentioned), also one bed stead and bed clothing and yearling calf. I will and bequeath to my beloved son William Riley forty five dollars the residue of said note on (name mentioned) to pay my funeral expenses.
I will and bequeath to all the legal heirs, one dollar each. To Wit: Allen Riley, Samuel Riley, James Riley, John Riley, Rebecca Davis, Margaret Tramel, Nancy Crum, Catherine Riley, deceased, her heirs and Zachariah Riley."
 
Note: James and Delilah had a daughter named Rachel also and we must assume that she was also deceased, probably before 1856. At the time that this document was written, her son Patrick was deceased and also her son Isaac , he had died in the Civil War are not mentioned. We find it strange that she does not mention their heirs for both Patrick and Isaac had children.

Notes for NANCY RENFRO:
NANCY RENFRO
It is believed that Nancy Renfro Riley may have died at the same time of the birth and death of their youngest child in Kentucky.
According to Ralph Riley in The Riley Book by Steve Meek: Nancy Renfro's father is said to have purchased land along the route of the Cumberland Gap. He has an Inn and a stable or corral for horses and livestock and put up a toll gate and charged a fee for passage through his land on the Cumberland Gap. It is said that he became a very very wealthy man , what with the toll charge and a fee for watering the stock and horses and the fact that he owned the Inn and Tavern.
The is a book called the Wilderness Road that alludes to this man named Renfro. The trail was sometimes called the Irish Road in reference to the many Scotch and Irish who passed along this road from Virginia to Kentucky.

Notes for CATHERINE RILEY:
CATHERINE RILEY
This Catherine Riley wed OUR PATRICK RILEY by the year 1839 and presumably in Indiana. They are found in Taney County, Missouri in the year 1840. We figure that OUR PATRICK RILEY and this #1 wife Catherine (Riley) Riley went down to Missouri along with OUR PATRICK'S FATHER, OLD ZACHARIAH RILEY and there in Missouri their first child was born. In the year 1843, they returned to Boone County, where their second child was born.
 
In 1850 OUR PATRICK RILEY is in the same dwelling as this Catherine's brother, Isaac Riley. Catherine does not appear in this Census taking in 1850, but their 2 small children are with Patrick.
 
We do know that OUR PATRICK RILEY wed on January 24, 1851 at Boone County, Indiana to his second wife. Her name was also Catherine Riley. She was the daughter of Thomas Riley and Maragret (Peggy) McIntosh. this Thomas Riley was the brother to OUR PATRICK RILEY'S FATHER, OLD ZACHARIAH RILEY and also brother to OLD JAMES HAMILTON RILEY.
 
We know that OUR PATRICK RILEY and his #2 wife Catherine (Riley) Riley were cousins and it appears that his #1 wife Catherine (Riley) was also a cousin.
 
In the Estate Distribution papers of JAMES HAMILTON RILEY, Catherine's father, the 2 children of Catherine and OUR PATRICK RILEY are designated as recipients of her share of her Father's estate and she, Catherine Riley is noted as being deceased.
 
It is interesting to note that Catherine's younger brother is declared to be under the guardianship of OUR PATRICK RILEY at that time, even though Delilah, his mother is still living. That was in 1856.

Notes for CATHERINE RILEY:
CATHERINE RILEY
This Catherine Riley wed OUR PATRICK RILEY by the year 1839 and presumably in Indiana. They are found in Taney County, Missouri in the year 1840. We figure that OUR PATRICK RILEY and this #1 wife Catherine (Riley) Riley went down to Missouri along with OUR PATRICK'S FATHER, OLD ZACHARIAH RILEY and there in Missouri their first child was born. In the year 1843, they returned to Boone County, where their second child was born.
 
In 1850 OUR PATRICK RILEY is in the same dwelling as this Catherine's brother, Isaac Riley. Catherine does not appear in this Census taking in 1850, but their 2 small children are with Patrick.
 
We do know that OUR PATRICK RILEY wed on January 24, 1851 at Boone County, Indiana to his second wife. Her name was also Catherine Riley. She was the daughter of Thomas Riley and Maragret (Peggy) McIntosh. this Thomas Riley was the brother to OUR PATRICK RILEY'S FATHER, OLD ZACHARIAH RILEY and also brother to OLD JAMES HAMILTON RILEY.
 
We know that OUR PATRICK RILEY and his #2 wife Catherine (Riley) Riley were cousins and it appears that his #1 wife Catherine (Riley) was also a cousin.
 
In the Estate Distribution papers of JAMES HAMILTON RILEY, Catherine's father, the 2 children of Catherine and OUR PATRICK RILEY are designated as recipients of her share of her Father's estate and she, Catherine Riley is noted as being deceased.
 
It is interesting to note that Catherine's younger brother is declared to be under the guardianship of OUR PATRICK RILEY at that time, even though Delilah, his mother is still living. That was in 1856.

CHARLES HIX/HICKS HAS LIVED HERE, ALMOST HALF A CENTURY
Recently this paper ran a story about the "old settlers" of Wes Des Moines and suggested that it would be interesting to hear from various residents who have made this community their home for a long period. ARTICLE IN W.D.M. EXPRESS
 
One of the oldest residents from that standpoint proved to be Charles Hix/Hicks, 614 Ninth Street, who accepted his first job as a Rock Island fireman here on December 17, 1892, and thus is now well along on the 49th year of his residence in this community.
Mr. Hix/Hicks was promoted by Rock Island in 1902 and served that road as an engineer for many years, retiring about a year ago on pension. he has five living children. Mrs. Hix/Hicks died in 1929.
At the present time, Mr. Hix/Hicks is 68 years old and enjoys fairly good health. he can look back upon a long lifetime of usefulness to his employers and to his community. He makes his home with his daughter at 614 Ninth Street.

Losing his mother when just an infant, he loved his grandmother dearly in whose home he grew up only to lose her to an accidental fire when she was 103. he started work at the age of 13 at the old brick factory in Thorntown which at that time was located across from the Maple Lawn Cemetery,
Thomas Patrick "Pat" Riley was born in Boone County on May 4, 1873, the son of Ebenezer and Eunice S. Gossett Riley. Ebenezer was born in Jennings County, Indiana, on march 19 1832, the second son of Allen and Elizabeth Sweetin Riley, both natives of Kentucky. Eunice was born in Boone County on April 18, 1853, the daughter of Thomas W. and Jerusha Ruth Frazier Gossett, both natives of North Carolina.
About 1827 Ebenezer was married in Jennings County to Mary Arnold by whom he had seven children.
Pat and Mary were the parents of eleven children.
Pat and Mary were members of the Wesleyan methodist church in Thorntown and attended services every Sunday. That was their day of rest.
The rest of the week Pat worked at gardening, general hauling, and was caretaker for most of the cemeteries at Thorntown. In 1957 he had his first stroke and had to give up his horses which were his pride and joy. He soon recovered and was active although he no longer worked.
Mary Jan Riley died on May 22, 1965, at Zionsville. She and Pat are buried in the Sugar Plains Cemetery. With their passing, Boone County lost two of the finest citizens.

Notes for FLORA EDITH RILEY:
FLORA EDITH RILEY
Flora Edith, third daughter of Moses E. and Laura Riley, she was born in Montgomery County, February 7, 1894 and departed this life January 16, 1914, age 19 years, 11 months and 9 days. She was united in marriage to Ira Carr, March 27, 1912. One son Leroy was born to this union.
Flora was a kind and loving daughter and sister. During her sickness which began last May, she was always patient and cheerful and expressed a readiness to go to the One who gave her life.
She made friends where ever she went, always of a laughing jolly disposition with comforting words for her loved ones. When asked how she was, her words were, "O very well I guess, well enuf for me."
During her last weeks of suffering she knew she could not be with us long and on the morning the Lord called her, she called for her darling baby, father, mother, brother and sisters, kissed us all good bye, to not grieve but to be comforted that she was leaving us to go where there are no pains and sorrow.
She told us the things she saw, "her sister Pearl, the prettiest places I ever saw." She said to us, "My you look so sweet, sweeter than ever before." She asked us to sing and she herself sang, "Nearer My God to Thee and  Jesus Lover of My Soul." These songs and "Sweetly Resting" at her request were sung at her funeral.
Besides the husband, son, father, mother and four sisters, one sister Pearl having died in July 1910, and other relatives are heart broken and today mourn her death.
She united with the United Brethren Church at Bowers in February 1909. The services were conducted from there Sunday morning, January 18, in charge of Rev. G.I. Stine, the Potato Creek Choir did the singing. Interment at the Lutheran Cemetery.
The Pall Bearers were, Misses Gladys and Tine Hampton (cousins of Flora), Thresa Bowen, Ethel Jones, Stella Kirk and Opal Doty.
 
We have lost our darling Flora,
She has bid us all adieu,
She has gone to live in Heaven,
And her face is lot to view,
O! that darling how we loved her,
And how hard to give her up,
But an angel came down for her,

And removed her from our flock.
