Mary Maria Riley Information

Contributor: bunkyhood Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Information was obtained by a Sketch of the Life History of Jacob Terry. Information was supplied by family members and arranged by Nora Lund--Family Historian Jacob married Mary Marie Riley Burns in 1839. She was born 5 May 1813 in Bermuda Islands, West Indies. Mrs. Burns was a young widow and came to Canada from Bermuda. The story goes that she was the mother of two sons whom she left with their grandfather and grandmother Burns in Bermuda, who wouldn't let them join their mother in Canada, so she never did see them again. Shortly after she married Jacob Terry her 3rd son was born, so, in honor of Mr. Terry, who was good and kind to her, she named this son, Terry Charles Burns. He lived in California for many years, having close associations with many Terry Family members.
