Amanda,
My son Bill and I have been recently back into trying to track down family history data. My grandfather was Herbert A. Rivers. He had the following siblings:
John born in 1858
Henry born in 1862
Nancy born in 1851
Cordelia born in 1856 (may be error in name)
Timothy born in 1849
The parents were Paschal Rivers-born in Montreal area
1824 and Mary Mowray/Moray about 1829. She died on
May 27, 1879 in Lowell, Orleans Co., VT.
The census for Pashal et al has them living in Orleans
Co. as of at least 1870.
The above children were all born in Enosburg, Franklin
County, Vt.
Data I have shows:
Timothy married Hannah M. Plumber on July 21, 1908.
John married Flora Belle Wescom on July 10, 1890
Henry married Emma J. Bently on Dec 20, 1882.
Paschal remarried to Elvina Josephine St. Louis when]
she was 24 yrs old. She was born in VT.
They had one child,Ovedia Josephine. She was born August 1887. She later married Olin Victor Bailey in Elmore
VT on August 17, 1904. And, later married an Ezra Thomas
on Dec. 10, 1929.
Does any of the above help you?
