Sunday Special: How the English Riley Family came to be Lutheran

Of course, Selma was raised in a Lutheran family.  Sid Riley's family came to the States from England.  His family was Church of England/Episcopalian until they moved to Dover. Ohio.  There wasn't an Episcopalian Church in Dover at that time.  They joined a Lutheran Church and Sid was confirmed a Lutheran.

At some point after their marriage,  he and Selma joined "The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity" (aka Holy Trinity) located on North Prospect in Akron.
