Re: John Rife from Switzerland

In Reply to: John Rife from Switzerland by Toni Reed of 321

Hey Toni,
Looks like you know about as much as I do. However, John begot Simon who begot Charley A. who begot Herman L. who begot Jack D. who begot me, or something like that. I have some info that relates to the direct line but pretty sketchy if you get very far off. An aunt did a bunch of work many years ago but she couldn't get past John either. The story came down through the family that the name RIFE was changed from something else when he got off the boat. I have Mary as coming from Berne but I just have Switzerland for John. Let me know what you have.
Charlie
