F, b. circa 1878
     Note: Possibly a daughter of Jerry O'Riley, b. 1855 Missouri. The Harry O'Riley who was living with Jerome and Sallie Molt in 1910 was a son of Jerry and Delila O'Riley, shown on the 1900 census. However the 15 years of marriage shown in 1900 does not support the birth of Sallie about 1878. Jerome and Sallie Molt are missing from the 1900 census, or are so badly indexed as to be not findable. DLB 2012.

Sallie O'Reilly was born circa 1878 at Illinois.1 She married Jerome Peter Molt, son of Charles Molt and Keziah Holzhausen, on 19 December 1897 at Wayne Co., IL, Jerome's surname is mis-indexed as "Malt" in the Illinois online marriage index.
