In Reply to: Re: Lyman Rife !880's Illinois by Velma Claudine Rife Emerine of 320

According to the 1920 census Lyman, Jr., was born bet 1914-1915, he died 4/26/1947 in Sacramento, CA. There is a story that he was a gangster along with his brother Frank. Lyman is supposed to have escaped from a chain gang and been gunned down.

I have not found a brother Frank as of yet! The legend said Lyman was in LA when he died, however death index shows his death in Sacramento, Ca. Lyman was born in Iowa.

You will find his family census in 1920 and 1930, His father was Robert Rife and his mother listed as Lizzie in the 1880 census.

Hope this is of some help.

Family names connected to Rife/OLIVER, Miller, King, Jackson.
