Henry Stephen Riley was born April 8, 1886 in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia, one of six children of George M. D. Riley and Eliza Englert Miller Riley and the twin of William Duncan Riley, who died as a child. He had two older half-sisters. "Harry" was the second husband of Nettie Donnie King Neely Riley and had two step-sons, Joe and Robbie Neely. Harry worked for the water works in Savannah. He loved to attend Savannah minor-league baseball at Grayson Stadium and root for the home team. His three step-grandchildren called him "Grandpop." He died at age 69 on September 29, 1955 in Savannah. (His twin "Willie" died at age 5.) Harry is buried in the Riley family plot in Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah. Harry's ancestry was German and Irish.

Thanks to Nettie King Neely Riley and Joe and Robbie Neely for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions.
