Hi Rochelle, my name is Tim Sturman and I am Riley's great grandson. My son's middle name is Riley, named after this ancestor. From the family stories I have heard, Riley was quite a colorful and interesting person. He and Louisa were the first couple married in Watertown, MN. They rode horeback to the wedding. He helped to clear the trees for the main street of Delano, MN where he spent much of his life. He, along with many of his family members, are buried in the Delano (Wright Co.) MN public cemetery. I have suspected that Riley's dad's name was Thomas (other family members thought as much) but I was never sure. I am very intersted in anything you know about Riley's and his spouse's ancestors. I have lots of detail about some of Riley's decenedants that lived in or around Delano, MN; if you are interested, let me know.
