Looking for any info on John Riley, born about 1780 in Ireland. He came to Virginia, where he married a former slave. They had a daughter named Jane Elisabeth Riley, born 1821 in Virginia. Jane was smuggled through the underground railroad, from Va. to Pennsylvania, where she married a man named Orange H. Dorman. I would like to find the name of the slave woman that John married, and any other info on the family.
