Lester Savage Dear Mr. Rivers,
I ran into your site while seeking information about Charles Albert Peck who your site indicates was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1869. Do you have any additional information or could you provide with anything about your Charles.
gratefully yours,
Lester Savage

Jim Rivers Charles Albert Peck (27 Nov 1896, Chicago, Cook, Illinois - 21 Jun 1946, Linn, Oregon) m. Jennia Almona Lewis (24 Jul 1878, Foster, Linn, Oregon - 7 Jan 1954, Linn, Oregon) on 24 Feb 1897 in Albany, Linn, Oregon. Jennia is my 3C1R. I have no more information on Charles Albert. The information I just cited came from a GeniWorld match and two other (than yours) SmartMatches.

Suzanne Shaw Jim,
I am a new member and assume that you are descended from Richard Henderson Rivers. I am descended from his sister Minerva. In your tree you have Mary AT Rivers as Edmunds and Sallie's daughter. She is their granddaughter and was living with them when her mother Mary Anne Trigg Rivers died. That is why she is in the census in their house hold. I am happy to share any information that I have. My tree is referred to as the Shaw tree and I show up as Suzanne. My middle name is Rivers. I have an extensive tree on Ancestry. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Rivers Thompson.

Jim Rivers Suzanne, thanks for the correction.
Actually, my Rivers lineage is:
RIVERS (from Essex or Devon, England)
Thomas Rivers 1585 – Elizabeth Matthews
John Rivers, Sr. 1645 – Hannah Baker
John Rivers, Jr. 1675 – Mary Rogers
Robert Rivers I 1703 – Hannah Hunt
William Rivers 1728 – Elizabeth Nicholson
John Rivers 1757 – Elizabeth Rivers
William Rivers 1778 – Rebecca Hunt
James Rivers 1802 – Mary I. Short
Joel P. Rivers 1839 – Samantha P. Sullivan
Edward F. Rivers 1876 – Lou E. Phillips
Kenneth H. Rivers 1902 – Letha Roberts

Edmund and Richard Henderson are in my tree, but rather distant cousins.

I had to make a choice about six years ago and I went with MyHeritage rather than Ancestry. I do have several relatives who have granted me 'guest' status on their Ancestry sites which has been helpful.

Let me know if you have additional observations, additions, or corrections re: your direct relatives in my tree.

Regards, Suzanne (is Shaw or Thompson your married name and Rivers a middle name?)
