Margaret Moore (Riker) McKean (1889-1962)

Mrs Margaret Moore (Riker) McKean

She was said to be a daughter of Richard Riker and was certainly descended from Richard's father, John Lawrence Riker. But, seeing as she had two siblings and Richard Riker died aged 19, it seems unlikely that he was their father. Also, she was born in 1889, and Richard died in 1853. Either way, by the time she was married in 1914 both her parents had died. According to The New York Times, the wedding was held at her aunt's (Mrs Samuel Riker's) house, 27 East 69th Street, New York City, and she was given away by her brother, Samuel Riker II, and her sister, Ruth, was a bridesmaid.
