Looking for ancestors and/or descendants of
RILEY family.

Father: Martin Riley, born c1844 in Ireland

Mother: Mary Ann Collins (also known as "Annie")
born c1840 in England

Known Children:

William, born 1868 in England

Mary, born 1870/71 in England

Lizzie (Elisabeth), born 1874/75 in England

The family MAY have lived in Warwickshire county,
England. They were Catholic and were among the
Catholics to sign on with Bishop John Ireland (of
America) in his quest/work with the I.C.C.O. (Irish
Catholic Colonies Organization).

The family came to the US>Minnesota>St. Paul>Nobles
County in late 1879 or early 1880. The family is
listed in the 1880 census of Nobles County, Minnesota.

Annie died in June of 1880.

Martin died in February of 1884.

It is doubtful if the relatives in
England and Ireland knew of the demise
of Martin.

Last known info on children:

William, traveled through Nobles County in 1889.
No further info.

Mary, was at the Home of the Good Shepherd in
St. Paul, MN, March of 1884, notation regarding
Mary made in Sept. 1884; last notation:
she left. No date.

Lizzie, Catholic Orphanage [in St. Paul?], February 1884.
No other information.

Trying to find more information on this family.
