I just recieved a note from Paul Rivers that reads:

I am Paul Rivers, son of Albert G. Rivers and Clara F. Rivers who used to live up by Watertown. My grandfather was Thomas Rivers married to Elizabeth. My Dad spoke about the large family an I knew Aunt Wealthea . She married a guy named Hall who traveled all over the world as an architect I believe. I used to go to her house up off State street in Watertown an I remember the beautiful Items he had shipped home from his travels. I would enjoy talking to you if possible.

I am sure this is your line as there can't be too many Wealthea Rivers! I have sent him your note and hope that you can correspond with him.

I have been working on the Riviere's/Rivers that came to Northern NY, specifially to Massena NY and Cornwall Ontario. Let me know if any of your line back were in that area @ 1840-1870.
