Rielly in Sumter Co., AL, she said to have maiden name Hatch. John H. and Mary Bolling for 1850 census had 8-yr-old James S. Riley in household, likely child of Mary Hatch Reilly and her first husband. Census shows Mary b NC in 1820. There is also a Riley family connection in nearby Choctaw Co., AL. Melba found that Thornberry Washington Bolling’s dau Nancy (age 16) is apparently married to J. F. Riley (age 25 and living next to T. W. on 1860 Choctaw Co. census. Several of the T. W. Bolling children are listed with Nancy’s household. (this from Melba Dingler 11/4/2005) "Sumter County, Alabama Wills" 1828-1872 Mortality Schedules: 1850-1880" by Gwendolyn Lynette Hester, Ed. D.

Reilly had a son, James Reilly, born about 1841" so this is child we found on census with John Henry and Mary, in Sumter Co, AL. and "That "they" (I think John Henry & Mary) , moved to Holmes Co., MS and that after John H. died, she m. William W. Wilson and they lived Holmes Co. and are on 1860 and 1870 census there."
