  • Notes 
    • Listed as 25 in 1910 Federal Census of Stonington Twp, Christian Co, Illinois. It says she was the mother of 6 children born with 2 living at time of census.

      Melissa's parents are listed as Albert & Frances E. Riley on the Jasper County Genweb site. Everything else I have for them is my 'best guess' based on census returns.

      ----------
      Owsley County was established in 1843. It is bounded by the counties of:

      Lee, Esthill, Jackson, Clay, Leslie, Perry, & Breathitt. [1]
