My name is Kathleen Thomson. My great grandfather was Riley McClain. Unfortunately you seem to have more information than I do. I was unaware of a 2nd marraige and the 8 children I have listed are apparently mixed from both mothers. One of the children I have was a Lizzie, which I am assuming was actually your grandmothe Linnie. I can tell you that Riley Married Dora Bell Russell in Oklahoma in 1909 and they had 8 children one of which was my grandmother Bonnie Beaulah.They eventualy moved to California where they both lived until thier deaths. If you would like to share more, you can contact me at kdt@lightspeed.net.
