It would appear from the Prince George county tax lists that he m. Bathia, who, as Bathia Rives, is shown as the owner of 311 acres of land in that county in 1782, and as late as 1794. In 1795 (the date of death of Col. John Rives), William Rives' Estate and Thomas Rives' Estate were both credited in the Prince George tax lists with 311 acres. From this, it would seem, that William Rives had died before 1782, leaving a widow, Bathia, who died 1794-5, the land left her reverting to her husband's estate. Issue, if any, unknown.
Barthia Reives appears on the 1787 Virginia Tax Lists for Prince George County.
