Re: Wrong Sheridan, I believe

In Reply to: Wrong Sheridan, I believe by Ralph Vanover of 321

According to my late uncle, A.D. Rife, Jr., Sheridan Rife (April 1855 - Feb. 13, 1925) married Winnie Elkins (Jan. 1849-April 27, 1927) in 1877. Winnie already had two children, Harve Elkins and Jeams Kelly. Sheridan and Winnie had ten more children. At some point, Sheridan married Nancy Ann Rose Mullins. (I assume after Winnie passed away!)

Nancy Ann Rose (June 17, 1884 - July 11, 1954) was the daughter of John and Sarah Rose. Nancy was previously married to Joseph Mullins, and then to Sheridan Rife. She was later remarried to James W. Lester. Sheridan and Nancy Ann Rose Mullins Rife had four children: Burlin (who died in 1928), Angeline (born May 28, 1915), Leroy (no info) and, the baby, Sheridan, Jr. (born March 20, 1922). Sheridan Jr. grew up and married Thelma Payne in 1944.

Might Sheridan Jr. be your grandfather?
