Note: Wiley spent his early life on the family farm in Buncombe County and that after his father died he moved to Kentucky and lived on Big Mud Creek for six months and then moved to Ohio. He moved back to Kentucky and enlisted in the Union Army at Peach Orchard. He was discharged in September of 1865. Family legend is that once he was captured by the rebels and made to dig his own grave but before he was to be shot made his escape. He was injured in his right arm while retreating from a raid on Saltsville, VA 24 Dec 1864 when his horse fell and rolled on him burying the hammer of his gun into his right arm below the elbow.

Wiley was treated by his Lt who rolled the horse off of him. He was not able to soldier after that and carried his arm in a sling until his discharge in Louisville, KY. After the war the family lived in Lawrence Co., KY near the Kanawha and Tug River then they moved to Green up Co., KY near Bennett's Mill on Tygart Creek in 1877. Wiley's final move was to southern Ohio where he lived near the Ohio River on what is now RT 52 ten miles west of Portsmouth, Ohio. He joined the Friendship Post 453 in Scioto Co., Ohio Grand Army of the Republic G. A. R. 4 Dec 1886. He was an officer and active member. Wiley died of pneumonia and was buried in Friendship Cemetery at Pond Run, Scioto, Ohio.
