Jim, I would like to exchange Orange Co material with you.
I have Jacob Riley- whose wife is purported to be Mary Ann Barkley-no proof found on that. But his will did name his children-of which I have 2-
John Rev. Sol. abt 1758-mine-m Nancy Jane Lynch Orange
Mary 1762-m Rev Sol James Gray Orange-mine
Catherine a 1770 m Jacob Riley Orange
Peter (Edward) a 1772-m Eliz Woods Orange, Nancy Finley Or
Jacob m Eliz Powers?
(Susannah- called Diana in some transcriptions-stayed home)
All of these children except the last-migrated to Greene Co Ga.
I have scoured the early records that exist-in any library I find them in.
Jacob and, James, Edward, seem to be it/ Sanders?
