    • Notes: 
    • Riley's Florida death record lists his birthdate as 22 DEC 1827, but his baptismal record in New York states he was baptized on 20 AUG 1827. The 1900 census give DEC 1827 as the birth date. It is possible that the baptismal record was transcribed incorrectly as there are other sources listing 22 DEC 1827 as his birthdate. However, all the sources containing the birthdate are many years removed from the event. The baptism is the closest record to the event. The original baptismal record should be checked to resolve these dates.
