Research Notes

Although Reliques mentions two marriages, there appears to be an earlier one from Illinois Childs was not aware of. He lists the son George Andrew Rives. But this is a son of his first marriage which Childs did not list. His first wife and son are listed in the Phinney household in Winnebago, Illinois in 1910 listed as daughter and grandson.
