Looking for anything on John Taylor (JT) Whittiker and/or Martha Robinson who married in Charleston in 1872. There was also a William R Whittaker that married a few months earlier than JT. JT named his first child William Riley so that they may be kin

My sister and I are also 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.

Thanks on the Boyd family page from Christy. I am not sure if they are related but will keep for future reference.

Greetings. I just located one of my Patrick-related families located in Grant County Arkansas. I found Wilson and Dicie H Owen located in the Sheridan Cemetery. Wilson Owen married Dicie Hill Patrick in October 1870 in Shelby County TN. The next time i find them is in the US 1880 Census living in Washington, Grant Co AR. Wilson (1829-1897) and Dicie (23 Apr 1837- 10 Aug 1919) had at least 3 children - Walter Owen born in 1873; Zada Owen born in 1875; and Loaman Owen born in 1876. The children are not found in any online Arkansas cemetery records and are not found at the Sheridan Cemetery. I hope that someone in that vicinity can provide a little assistance. I hope that an obituary for Dicie Owen in August 1919 would reveal the existence and possible whereabouts of the children. Full name and exact dates for Wilson would be nice too. Thanks.

NW Arkansas
My ancestors were Whiteleys, Jones', Nichols/Nickols from Newton, Madison, and Carroll Counties. I have quite a lot on the Whiteleys, thanks to Dorris Estes. However, finding John Jones b. ca. 1795 TN and his wife (unknown) is my brick wall. They had a daughter, Caroline (Jones) Whiteley, b. 1831 Tennessee and d. 1886 Osage, Newton, Arkansas; and a son James LeRoy Jones, b. 1834 Arkansas and d. after 1910 Chalome, San Luis Obispo, CA. Caroline Jones was my g-g-g-grandmother, and George W. Whiteley was her husband.
