Re: ~~~Nancy Rife/ George McCarty -Meigs Co., Ohio

In Reply to: ~~~Nancy Rife/ George McCarty -Meigs Co., Ohio by Pamela Moody of 321

Is there any information on who Nancy Rife's parents may have been? I am researching the family of Joseph Rife, Sr. and Margaret Carpenter, who were married by the Rev. John Alderson on September 16, 1779, probably in Greenbrier County, Virginia (now West Virginia). I have Joseph and Margaret's children as Catharine, born about 1783; Joseph Jr., born July 16, 1787; Jacob, born May 16, 1789; Henry, born about 1790; Esther S., born March 23, 1791; and Margaret, born August 23, 1798. It certainly seems likely there would have been one or more children born between Joseph Sr. and Margaret's marriage in 1779 and the birth of Catharine in about 1783. Nancy would certainly fit in that gap with a 1781 birthdate. Also, Esther, born in 1791, married Jonas McCarty, who in all likehood was closely related to Nancy's husband George McCarty.
