The 1782 will of Elizabeth Chappell establishes her as the likely daughter of Timothy Rives, born 1710 in Virginia. Timothy Rives, her likely brother, is named administrator and Timothy's daughter Charlotte is a legatee.

Many researchers believe that Elizabeth married Henry Chappell, but that was a different Elizabeth Rives. The given name of her husband is unknown.

A transcript of the will is on the SC Archives records portal.

Elizabeth Rives is not documented in Reliques of the Rives, but her siblings are.
