Hi Marlene,

Riley is no doubt a shortened version of Reilly, and it is quite a common surname, particularly in County Cavan.

Dixon/ Reilly marriages include Catherine-Catherina Reilly, born c. 1836 who married Michael Dixon and had Joseph Dixon, of 9 Britain Street, Dublin, who was bapt. St. Marys RC, The Pro-Cathedral, Dublin, Ireland, 30 Jul 1858

Catherine Reilly, born c.1834 married William Dixon born c. 1831, and had Helena Teresa Dixon,
of 23 Britain Court, Bapt. St Mary RC, The Pro-Cathedral, Dublin, who was bapt 26 Jan 1856.

It seems likely that William & Michael were brothers, and it might be that these Caherine/Catherina's are also related, perhaps the widow of William Dixon, given the proximity of the addresses given.

A M[ary?] Reilly married Michael Dixon, born c.1842 in Granard, Co. Longford, Ireland, and this couple had 3 children:-
John Dixon, b. Mar 1872, Granard, Co. Longford, Ireland
Elizabeth Dixon, b. Dec 1872, Granard, Co. Longford, Ireland

Elizabeth Dixon, of 148 Montgomery Street, bapt. St. Mary's RC., Pro-Cathedral, Dublin, 09 Feb 1869

A Mary Reilly, b. abt 1831, married Thomas Dixon, b. abt 1830, Drummond, Killyon, Co Meath, Ireland, and had at least 10 children:-

Joseph Dixon, Abt. 1872
Mary Dixon, abt 1875, 4 Ushers Quay, Dublin

A Patrick Reilly m. Mary Dixon, 15 Jan 1850, Kells, Co. Meath, Ireland

A Sarah Reilly of 16 Braith Street, Dublin, Ireland, married Samuel Dixon of 11 Braith Street, Dublin in Nov 1875 at St Catherine RC., Dublin

Hope something in the above is of value

Good Hunting
Michael
