     George Stovall was born circa 1695, son of Bartholomew Stovall and Ann Burton, in Henrico County, Virginia Colony.2

     George Stovall married Elizabeth (--?--) circa 1728.2

     George Stovall married Elizabeth Landon between 1755 and 1756. She was his second wife and the mother of Bartholomew, Rachel, Martha, Anne, James, George Jr. and Dorothy.2,3

     "Although George was too old to serve in the American Revolution, he furnished supplies, and ferried soldiers and equipment across the James River, and received pay for this after the War was over. A list of his supplies can be found in the Virginia Public Service Claims, Bedford County Court Book, List, and Certificate; and the Campbell County Commissioner's Book:
     Bedford County, Virginia:
     March 1, 1781; 8 bushes corn; 533 wt. hay furnished militia on their march to North Carolina. 2      bushels corn; 1 bushel oats
     June 15, 1781; 11 diets furnished British prisoners and their guards
     June 15, 1781; 3 beef cattle, 675 pounds; diets, forage and pasture. 3 beeves, 810 pounds
     July, 1781: bay horse, 6 or 7 years old, impressed by militia on its march to Richmond; 16 lbs.      bacon for Botetourt Militia on its way home from camp
     September 10, 1781; 3 beefs and 1 pk. corn
     December 5, 1781; ferriage for 146 men

     Campbell County, Virginia
     August 7, 1783; for diets furnished prisoners of war, for horses furnished in 1781, £6.73 each.

     His land has been located by a descendant, Sam Stovall. It can be found thusly: go north from Lynchburg on Highway 29 to Madison Heights, a suburb across the north side of the James River to Highway 622 which heads east, and follow it to Galt's Mill at Stovall Creek to the land of George., Jr. Across the James River is the land of George, Sr. Stovall Creek is on the north side of the Fluvanna (now James River) River between the Tye River (east) and North Rivers (west), 16 miles east of the Blue Ridge Mountain crest and just northy of Long Mountain going from the Tye River." There are numerous other records on file relating to George Stovall, Sr. I recommend the cited source for further information.4

     George Stovall left a will dated on 18 April 1786 in Campbell County, Virginia. He names his sons: Bartholomew; James; George Jr; and, daughters: Rachel Turner; Martha, Anne and Dorothy. He also states that "the children I had by my former wife have already received their portions." He names his wife, Elizabeth. He names Henry Turner as his son-in-law.5,3

     George Stovall died before 7 December 1786 in Campbell County, Virginia.
     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for him as of 23 Jan 2019.2

     His estate was probated on 7 December 1786 in Campbell County, Virginia.5,3

     Almira Johnson was born circa 1826, daughter of Richard Collins Johnson and Francis Turner, in Sumner County, Tennessee.1      Almira Johnson was born on 10 April 1832, daughter of Richard Collins Johnson and Francis Turner, in Tennessee.2 She was also known as Elmira.2

     Almira Johnson died on 7 March 1920 in Lexington, Lafayette County, Missouri,2 and was buried in Country Farm Cemeterey, Lafayette County, Missouri.

     Her death certificate indicates she was a widow, but parents are unknown. The informant was C. L. Kinkaid. For this reason, I wonder about this identification.2

     James L. Rives, 18, married Elizabeth Hood, 15 on 28 September 1825 in Granville County, North Carolina, with Stephen R. Turner as bondsman and A. Sneed as witness

     This union produced 13 children: John Hood Rives (1826-1904); William Charles Rives (1828-1850); Sarah Ann Rives Gary (1829-1901); Stephen Turner Rives (1831-1897); Andrew Jackson Rives (1832-1842); Mary Elizabeth Rives Temple (1835-1908); George Washington Rives (1837-1920); Lucy Rives Craw (1838-1900); Frances Jane Rives Woodcock (1841-1915); Margaret Susan Rives Robinson (1843-1919); James Rutledge Rives (1845-1916); Pamela Catherine Rives Bruce (1847-1922); and Infant Son Rives (1851-1851).6,7,8

     On 24 November 1836, he is named in his father's will of this date.3

     He moved toGreene County, Illinois.9

     James L. Rives, 44, married Julia Boyd, 32 on 6 June 1852 at Quincy, Adams County, Illinois. I cannot find documentation on this marriage in either Illinois or North Carolina. I can find her listed as his spouse on the marriage of their son, Elmer E. Rives but nowhere else in the United States.8

     "Rev. James Rives was born September 13, 1807 in Warren County, North Carolina. He was the son of William McGuffy and Mary (Turner) Rives. He married Elizabeth Hood on September 28, 1825 in Granville County, North Carolina. He was over 6 foot tall. Shortly after the birth of their first child he and Elizabeth traveled from Warren County to Christian County, Kentucky in a one-horse cart. The baby, John Hood Rives, and Elizabeth rode in the cart and James walked along side with his musket constantly watching for danger. They traveled through sparsely settled country by way of the Cumberland Gap. In Christian County they settled near his older brothers, Stephen and Thomas and his sister, Sarah Rives Moss. James and Elizabeth purchased land cleared and cultivated it. In addition to this he labored on the plantations of Taylor brothers for seven years, which enabled him to acquire enough money to continue their westward migration. James traveled to Illinois in the early part of 1834. On May 6, 1834 he filed for his first 160 acres of land in Illinois. On May 10, 1834 he filed for another 160 acres located about 6 miles south east of the present town of Greenfield, Illinois. He paid a dollar twenty-five per acre. The nearest post office was in Carrollton, Illinois about 15 miles to the west. At that time Green County also included the present Jersey County.

     In the fall of 1834 James freed his slaves and left Christian County, Kentucky in a covered wagon drawn by oxen with his family, for the move to Greene County, Illinois. Over the next year he purchased another 360 acres of land. After getting his farming operations established he followed the popular movement in frontier areas and established Rivesville, on November 11, 1835. In 1836 he built a southern style home which became known as "the old house", it stood for nearly 100 years and housed 5 generations of Rives' before being razed. Rivesville prospered for a time but when the government decided to locate the community post office at Fayette 2 miles north, the town diminished. James had acted as postmaster.

     James embarked into merchandising as well as raising livestock, which proved to be very profitable. In the fall of 1847 he attended the Methodist Conference and obtained a license to preach. He held local meetings at his home and quarterly meetings at his store. Sunday was always a special day in the Rives family. James assisted in the development of this part of the state of Illinois and was always a friend to the new settler. He became known as " Uncle Jimmy Rives". He was in much demand to officiate at weddings. He officiated over 90 weddings from October 1847 to March 1866. After the death of his first wife, Elizabeth in 1851 he sold his land to his eldest son, and moved to Greenfield. He built a home in Greenfield in 1852 that soon became known as " Methodist Hotel". James was active in civic affairs and came to know President Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas who visited Green County occasionally. Although he was a native of the south and a former slave owner he never deterred from supporting the Republican Party and having a son serve in the union army.

     On June 6, 1852 he married Julia Woodcock Boyd. With his first wife Elizabeth he had 13 children and with Julia he had an additional 5. On Sunday July 8, 1866 while preparing for church he was stricken and succumbed to a heart attack. By the time of his death he had given each of his surviving children a farm or the equivalent in money. James has a living legacy in Illinois to this day.

     This information was obtained from Reliques of the Rives, Rives and Allied Families of Green Territory Illinois and family memories."8

     Rev. James L. Rives died on 8 July 1866 at age 58 in Greenfield, Greene County, Illinois,10,2 and was buried in Rives Cemetery, Rockbridge, Greene County, Illinois.8

     On 24 November 1836, she is named Rebecca Southall in her father's will of this date.2

     Although I found a Rebecca Southall, age 60, living in the household of Martha Hart, age 45 along with Mary Childres, age 45 and Sarah Childres, age 6, all were born in Virginia. I believe this Rebecca was married to T. J. Southall.7

     Rebecca Southall died before 25 July 1870 in Kentucky. When I found Holmon married to a Sarah (--?--) Southall, age 54 in the 1870 census.8
