My great-grandparents were Joseph Riviere and Lydia Rexford. Lydia was the daughter of Elisha Rexford (descendant of Arthur Rexford of CT)and was b. 1813 in Newport, Orleans County, Vermont. Joseph & Lydia were m. 16 Nov 1835 in Patten, Stanstead, Canada. He was allegedly b. 1809 in Magog, Canada. I found a Joseph Riviere b.approx. 1774 and died 21 Jan 1852 in Patton, Stanstead, Canada. My mother always said her grandmothers maiden name was "Reevers" so it took me a long time to find a record of them. If anyone has this couple in their line, please let me know.
