Birth: 1847
Jackson County
Missouri, USA
Death: Sep., 1864
Cooper County
Missouri, USA

After Riley's father was murdered by federals, his mother took him to William Quantrill so he could make a bushwacker out of him and avenge his father's death. Riley was not only the youngest(15 years old) but one of the hardest fighters. He was killed just days after the Centralia massacre in Cooper County Missouri while on the return trip with Bloody Bill Anderson. They were ambushed and fired upon from a fence corner.
