Thanks for the info! Here is what I have on Riley, in case anyone
wants to fill in the blanks:
1855 NY state census Town of Bethel, Sullivan County NY
Martin Marcheson 62 Carpenter born Ulster Co.
Sarah 57 born Ulster Co.(Sarah Reichmeyer)
James 25 born Greene Co.
Abraham 20 born Greene Co.
Syrus 17 born Greene Co.
Ryle 12 born Greene Co.
The family said they had been living in Sullivan County for 7 years.

In dwelling # 46 on the same page is the household of
John Marcheson 39 born Greene Co.
Eliz. 26
Lucy 7
Lewis 5
They had been residing in Sullivan County for 4 years.
(John was Riley's older brother)

I checked the federal census for 1850
and found Martin and family enumerated on 27 August 1850 in Bethel,
Sullivan County, NY:

Martin Morgenson 57 Carpenter NY
Sally 53 NY
Margaret 23 NY
James 22 Laborer NY
Abraham 14 NY
Cyrus 12 NY
Riley 7 NY

If anyone has info on Riley's wife and children I would appreciate it.
