I have spend a half-century it seems (close) to trying to find the family of my gggrandfather, Joseph Rife. He was born in 1801/02 and died in 1886 in Macon Co., IL. He is thought to be from Lancaster or Dauphin Co. PA and married Elizabeth Garver there in 1828. He had three children, Jacob b 1826 -probably different wife--,Joseph Jr. b.1831 and Elizabeth b.1842. My father was his last male descendant. I find Jacob and Henry and Abraham residing near the Christian Garvers in the 1810 and 1820 census, but can't find a connection. If you have some info. Please share. Thanks
