I found Fannie C & a couple children in the 1920 & 1930 census. The 1920 census had Fannie C as head of household & she was living with a daughter & her husband in 1930. Our cousins Harry Lee Senter et al report having found Wm Riley's grave somewhere in Washington Cnty (Abingdon) and is buried with Fannie C. That is the location they were living at the 1910 census.
