According to Marriage Record #2204 for George F. Myrtle and Betsy Jane Patterson on 10/13/1867, his parents are listed as James M. Myrtle and Columbia Wright. George is 21 yr 7 mo old at time of marriage and a resident of Rockingham Co, VA. You might also check Waynesboro City Court Records as Rife is a prominent name in that area. You might also check the 1860 and 1870 census for Augusta Co by searching on "Valley of the Shadow" which has a lot of information about Augusta County. The Augusta County courthouse in Staunton, VA, also has an 1850 census you could check.
Wright is sometimes spelled Right or Rite in the older records, so its possible the last name could have actually been Rife.
