Garner among the soldiers from Virginia who Hail been under the command of general Nathaniel Greene in his Campaign against lord Cornwallis in North Carolina and who took part in the Battle of Guilford court House. Was a private Soldier by the name of William Riley. He May have he a in the disastrous Battle at Camden South Carolina where general Horatio Gates forever forfeited the Honor that should have gone to the traitor. Benedict Arnold for the Success of the Battle at Saratoga it is Likely that he was a member of some of the scouting parties that passed through this Section of the kale endeavouring to rally the Dilt tar aced whigs for another Battle with the British under a More courageous and experienced general than was the Case with general Gates. William was a son of Nathan Riley and Anne Cook Riley and a gland son of John Riley who had emigrated from Northern Ireland to America Early in the eighteenth Century and settled in the historic Northern Nee k of Virginia. In that Section where so Many of americans first families have originated it was Only natural that the Riley enlisted in the cause of the patriots. Mega pm to Carolina after the War was Over William who had been attracted by the opportunities for settlement in the Virgin country along the tributaries of the Yadkin River in Eastern Rowan county persuaded the family to move from Virginia to the less crowded state of North Carolina. Accordingly in the year 1783, we find them settled in the country now included in the larger Community of Denton. Besides William there were at least five other sons of Nathan Riley who established Homes in the Community George and Janies settled to the West of Menton while Peter Rodias and Nathan jr., settled on the East Side along Toms Creek. The senior Nathan Riley died i soon after coming to North Caro i Lina and the plate of his burial 1 is not known. He seems to have entered two separate tracts of land in 1 785 on the East Side of t town where the old Riley Auriti ground is located and where Anne William and Nathan the Baptist minister were buried and it is believed thai Nathan senior is buried there also. William died i in 1806 and George the next oldest son administered the estate. The final settlement was i certified to by William Ward and j James b u r in h a a d. Esq. The amount of sales presumably personal property i Given As 53 pounds Sterling the old court j record clearly illustrates the old English customs still prevailing j in North Carolina As late As the i beginning of the nineteenth Cen i tury. And reads a follow a August 5th, 1805. Quot stale of North Carolina. Row an county we William Ward and i James Burkhead. Esq., of said county being called by George Riley administrator of William Riley deceased to Settle said estate in his hands. The amount of sales in his hands is 55 pounds. We find the rates and vouchers for his House to amount toll pounds. 14 shillings and 3 Pence. We have allowed him 7 pounds and 14 shillings for his trouble and rash he has paid i Pound and 3 shillings. A certified by a a a. Ward James Burkhead him Roii ase land that the Riley family were industrious and prospered in their new surroundings is evidenced by the numerous transactions and land purchases recorded in the Register of Meeds office at Salisbury and later at Lexington Anne Riley Waw evidently a Good Maneger for after her husband. Nathan senior died she acquired a considerable estate in land in her own right and name. Tho records showing numerous sales and purchases George Riley was evidently the politician of the family and it appears that he worked to help establish the new county of Davidson from Rowan by serving on various committees representing his Section of the county. For Many years he a a Justice of the peace and at least on one occasion presided Over the court of common pleas and Quarter sessions of Davidson county. He was among the first to buy a lot in the Village of Lexington after it was made the county seat. N Athan Riley Nathan Riley a perhaps the most widely known of the brother.

One son named Nath i an after his father and grand father immigrated to Indiana while the other two sons Rodias and John settled in Randolph county. The late or. J. M. Riley j of Lexington was a son of Rhodes and a grandson of elder Nathan Riley the first Rodias brother to Nathan and George was perhaps i the wealthiest and was by far the largest land Hoider of a1 the five Brothers. He seems to have taken but Little interest in politics leaving that to his brother George. I however he was of an ageless Ive spirit and probably was the controlling influence in the local Baptist Church. He is said to have donated the land on which the i first Church a a built. When his i brother. Elder Nathan Riley died 1 and a new pastor was railed Frt i iou soon developed among the membership which finally Lead to i division. Rodias was a confirmed i calvinist in doctrinal belief and when the Church Lead by Hie pastor Jesse sew Al. And a brother Deacon. Matthew Skeen voted to support the missionary movement then beginning to be agitated in the Church Rodias and his son in Law elder Ansel Peacock Lead j the opposition that withdrew to form a new Church to which he i gave three acres of land. Thia same Church is now known As t tile primitive Baptist Church of Tom Creek that the Riley did not always agree among them-1 selves Siut sometimes asserted j their Irish individuality is proven ? by the fact that re Odiase brother.
