Hooray, I have found a Rife ancestor!! My Father's name was RIFE WILSON SIBLEY, whose Father was RIFE COLLINS SIBLEY, whose Father, HON. WM. LANSFORD SIBLEY ma. Martha Jane Collins in Miss. Wm. W. Rife was ba. ca. 1800 and died 1842 in Miss. I have a copy of his will. His father was WM. RIFE ba. 1785 and came to Wash. Co., Miss. Yes they were quite wealthy and my father inherited from them when he was 16 and again at 21. I recently copied Wm.W.'s will from books in Jackson, Ms. courthouse and archives. Glad to share all I have. I live in Arkansas. Violet sibley Isaacks
