I am still trying to find Riley's parents. His marriage certificate lists his parents as Amos and Eliza Churchill, both dead. He married in 1909. He was born in 1883. In the 1910 census, he has been married 1 year and is listed as Riley Coward, and wife Eva. I don't know what the earlier lie(surname) was about. I found that Amos and Eliza Coward were both alive. I find it hard to believe that he just picked Amos and Eliza out of thin air. I have come to believe that they were his grandparents, but can't prove it. Is this kind of thinking too much of a grasp? I don't know what I can do next. Any tips are appreciated. Thanks for reading.
