Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
May 21, 1925

OBITUARY ~ NATHAN R. RILEY

Nathan R. Riley was born in New Athens, Harrison Co., Ohio, Feb. 8, 1845 and died at his home in Clearfield, May 15, 1925. He had lived to the ripe age of eighty years.

When but five years of age his parents removed from the Ohio home to Washington County, Iowa, where he resided until 1870. It was during that year he came to Taylor Co. locating on a farm south of Conway where he resided until they moved to Clearfield in 1894. The family has lived here since that date.

On Sept. 8, 1870 he was united in marriage to Miss Adaline E. Ginn. To them were born five children, two sons and three daughters. Minnie L. [? ] passed away a little more than two years ago; Alice N. Lyddon and Katie B. Hadden both of Clearfield; Howard E of Los Angeles, Calif. His wife, four children, eighteen grandchildren and sixteen great-grand children are the immediate mourning relatives, together with a sister, Mrs. Mary Leider of Griswold, Iowa.

Mr. Riley was reared in a home where family worship was a part of the program twice daily. The old style worship was his preference. He enjoyed the old hymns. He united with the Methodist church in early manhood.

Mr. Riley has been a resident of Taylor Co. for forty nine years, thirty years of that time being spent in Clearfield. A genial, sunshiny disposition was his characteristic attitude, and with his going a familiar figure drops out of the daily life of our little city.

Funeral services were held Sunday at 2 p. m. at the M. E. Church conducted by Rev. Matthews. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
