One of his brothers and George "Mack" RILEY's father was George Matthew RILEY b. 04 Sep 1911 d. 03 Jun 1968 in the VA Hospital in Wichita, Kansas. They had 5 additional siblings, Margaret "Pete" RILEY HOMAN, Susan RILEY STRODE KELLY, Thomas RILEY Jr., John RILEY, known as Bud, and Paul RILEY. We have lost all contact with Uncle George Matthew "Toad" RILEY's son, George Mack RILEY. We believe he is still in Kansas.
