Seeking descendants of William Riley/Marianne Jones, West Virginia, ~1850-1930

Searching for my mother's father... I've triangulated a group of living genetic matches back to William Riley (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Riley-7206) and Marianne (or Mary Ann) Jones (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Jones-60557) in West Virginia.  I'm starting the long process of tracking down all of their descendants to find my grandfather.  Ultimately I'm looking for someone born ~1908-1928 (probably closer to 1923 or so) who spent time in the MD/DC area in ~1948.  I've already got a good start at this on paper (really, a monster MS Word doc) based on info from Ancestry, etc., but I want to get it properly into Wikitree to make it easier to find connections.  Figured I'd mention it here in case anyone has trees that might already tie in easily.

Other possible families related to him are the Jarvis, Cottrell, Cochran, Sergent/Sargent, and maybe Simmons families of West Virginia.  I'll be expanding those lines as well later but thought I'd mention them here in case anyone knows of connections between them and the Riley line.

Thanks in advance for any help!
