My sister and I are researching our Riley surname. Our GrGrandfather Benedict Joe Riley married Sara (Jane, Juanita?)Watkins in Fancy Farm, Ky at St. Jerome church in 1885(Graves County,KY). Sara Jane was born 6/24/1869 in Paducah, Ky. She died in Truman, Arkansas and is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Looking for anyone connected/researching this family.
