    Notes 
    • Known as Riley. The I.G.I. records April 21 as his birthday. This was probably the day he was baptised. Made the "run," with his brother Isaac, on 22 April 1889 and each filed on a 160 acre farm about eight miles north-east of Guthrie, Oklahoma. Using his father's watch he timed his last dose of medicine.
