Oh boy, oh boy...a brick wall is falling.
Samuel Riker/Reichard and Marinda Agnes Lewis are my great grandparents. The family tradition states that Samuel's surname was really PAUL. He took the name Reichard and headed west to avoid fighting in the Civil War. By the time they reached Oregon, it was Riker. Yes, Cecil Riker, of Oregon, was their grandson. I have info on the Oregon Rikers. Glad to share. Would love Lewis info.
