From Reliques of the Rives:
John Thomas Rives was born in Dawson county, Georgia, and left home at the age of twenty-one and engaged in stock raising on the frontier of Texas. Since 1906 he has been in the real estate and oil business in southwest Texas, making his home now at 310 Dwyer Avenue, San Antonio, Texas. Mr. John T. Rives has very kindly furnished such information concerning his immediate family as was possible and which has been necessarily limited, as he writes, by the fact that he has been separated from parental ties since infancy. He married February 14, 1890, Eugenia May Merrick, at Sierra Blanca, Texas, daughter of John M. and Cynthia (Kiser) Merrick, of Hunt county, Texas.
