My Grandfather was Aronald Horne Rish and my father is Thomas Gray Rish. Who was your Mother Laura Maye? If so I think that we must be distant cousins.
I found out that the South Carolina Rish's came from Palentine, Germany( it is listed on this site). The Aiken lib. has no real record of our orgin at least it did not several years ago.
Let me know if you think we are cousins
