Annette’s family came to Indiana in about 1849 or1850 from Holmes County, Ohio, where she had been born. They lived near Corunna in DeKalb County, Indiana. She left Indiana in 1868 after her marriage to William Henry Riley as he returned to the family farm in Ashland, Ohio.

About seven years before her death, Annette (called Nettie) was canning and one side of her body suddenly became useless – now called a stroke. It is believed that she never fully recovered from that stroke. Eight of her children and her husband survived her when she finally died in 1892.
