I am looking for information on my Ancestors John and Mary. I have been told John's name was La Riviere (not sure of the spelling) and then at some time he could have changed it to Rivers. I have also be told that he was born in Lower Canada in the early 1800's. We do not know for sure that is wife's name was Mary or what her madian name was.
Peter La Riviere (? Sp) was born July 22, 1834 in either Lower Canada or Massacuttes. When he married Louisa Gray October 25, 1860 he changed his name to Rivers.
I also have been told Peter had a brother who died in the Civil War and also had three sisters, who lived in the New York / Massacuttes area. One married a Batty (?Sp) from the Parma, New York area.
If any one has any information on this family, or you think you may be connected, please let me know.
We also have a webpage at http://www.uftree.com/UFT/WebPages/dianaswanson/RIVERSJ/index.htm
We are having a few problems upgrading it and there are some errors, but if you want to read up a little on John or Peter and there families, please do.
