William Riley Drewry was born in Tennessee, to Joseph Jackson Drewry and Mary Taylor.

He married Clara Cordelia "Delia" Payne on March 5, 1874 in Mt. Pleasant Township, Searcy County, Arkansas. They had fourteen children; Beddie, Elick, Bertha, Maudie, Homer, Pamelia, Sarah, James, William, John, Member, Parthenia and supposedly 2 children died at an early age. (This info was given by Wayne Goates)

After further investigation, I came up with names of Grandpa Drewry's children as: Member Castoe, Pencelia, Bertha, Sarah, James, Beddie Blair, Alec, Homer, John, William, Reelie Clowers, Parthenia Akins, Sallie Hill and Maude Goates.
