  • Notes 
    • Nancy Caroline (Cassie) Wallace and Eldridge Riley had 6 children. They moved from Montgomery County to Yadkin County where all their children were born. Later they moved to KY. The earliest record found of them in KY was in the 1880 census of Marshall County. Several descendants of Cassie recalled that their parents spoke of Asheville, NC and it is thought that they lived there before moving to KY.
