A veteran of World War I, Robert Fleming Riley was born on August 17, 1883 in Port Royal, Beaufort County, South Carolina, one of six children of George M. D. Riley and Eliza Englert Miller Riley of Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. He also had two older half-sisters. In 1910 he worked as a steam boat pocket agent. He was married to Beatrix Morgan Riley. He served in World War I, was drafted in August 1917, served in France from July 1918 through January 1919, and honorably discharged in February 1919. He was a captain in the 61st Artillery CAC (Coast Artillery Corps) and fought in the Battle of the Argonne Forest. In 1920 he worked as an insurance agent in Savannah. Bob died at age 48 on August 27, 1931 in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida. His ancestry was German and Irish. He is buried in the Riley family plot in Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah. I hope one of his relatives will add his photo to this site. Where is his wife buried? Did they have any children?
