I have been looking for the parents of my great grandfather James O. RILEY, 1858-1948, who lived near Friendsville, MD for over three years. All thatis known is that in a family Bible, his parents were listed as Pady RILEY married to Jane WHORLEY/WOODY.

I finally found an obit in the 1902 Cumberland Times excerpts for a James/John (not sure of first name it said) Riley, one of the oldest trainmen of the area. He died in February 1902 at the age of 70 at the home of a son Harry. He had six grown children, but didn't list their names. He was buried in Rose Hill Cemetery. I called Rose Hill Cemetery and was told that a Jane, his wife's name, was not buried in his plot but that a Mary Riley who died at age 49 in 1915 was buried there as well as her stillborn infant in 1907. Also, there was a William Riley, Lottie Fisher, John P. Fisher, Carl Thomas Stevens buried in 1953 and William Stevens buried in 1956 were located in his plot. Does anyone know of these persons and their connection to James Riley?

The 1870 Cumberland, Allegany Co, census shows Will H. LOWDERMILK, age 31, occupation editor, with wife Temperance living in a hotel run by Samuel and Jane LUMAN. I believe the hotel proprietors, the Lumans, are the parents of Temperance LOWDERMILK. Can anyone confirm?? I now believe that Will H. LOWERMILK (who wrote the history of Cumberland) is the same as William Harrison LOWDERMILK, born 7 Jan 1839, the son of Uptown LOWDERMILK and Eliza RIZER. Can anyone confirm??
