ROBERT H. RILEY

     "ROBERT H. RILEY was one of the first settlers of Athens Township, Ringgold County, locating on section 23, in the autumn of 1853. He laid a claim of 120 acres before the land had been put in the market, and afterward entered it from the Government. When Athens Town ship was divided the southern part was named Riley, in honor of the Riley family, they being early settlers. He was born in Marion County, Ohio, a son of William and Love Riley. He was reared in his native State, and was there married. He brought a family of children with him to Ringgold County, and made what is now Riley Township his home until March, 1873, when he moved to Decatur County, Kansas, where he still lives."
