I am seeking information regarding my very illusive grandmother of which I (like everyone else) know very little. I believe, however, that she may have been born of the union of Peter Ebeneezer Rivard and his wife, Nedia Soper Revard. My grandmother's given name was Emma and so was one of Peter and Nedia's daughters. Records show that, after his marriage, Peter Ebeneezer Rivard ceased to use the name "Rivard" and called himself "Rivers" instead: Hence his daughter's name was Emma Rivers. That was my grandmother's name too. Furthermore, both of these Emmas were born in the late 1870's. I'm hoping that they are one and the same. If anyone out there is connected in any way with Peter Ebeneezer Rivard, please write me at
