The line of descent from John and Grace Riley to Amelia (Riley) Curtis was through their son, Lieutenant Isaac Riles, a commissioned officer in the service of Connecticut, born 1670; his son, Nathaniel Riley; his son, Asher Riley; his son, Calvin Riley; his daughter, Amelia (Riley) Curtis" (Nutt, p. 783).
