     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.5

     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

     John Hood Rives was born on 4 August 1826, son of James L. Rives and Elizabeth Hood.2

     John Hood Rives, 22, married Elizabeth Ann Randle, 18, on 23 August 1848 in Greene County, Illinois.2,3

     John Hood Rives died on 24 June 1904 at age 77 in Rockbridge,2 and was buried in Rives Cemetery, Rockbridge, Greene County, Illinois. "One of This Section's Best Known Residents Passed to His Reward. Died, on Friday, June 24 at 2:20pm, John Hood Rives, after an illness which continued through many weeks at his old home six miles southeast of Greenfield (**Rivesville, near Rockbridge). Aged seventy-seven years, ten months and twenty days. John Hood Rives was the son of James and Elizabeth (Hood) Rives. He was born August 4, 1826, in Eastern North Carolina, near the Virginia line. When he was about three months old his parents removed to Christian county, Kentucky, making the journey across the rough and thinly settled country in a one-horse cart and settled on and improved a farm. They lived there until the fall of 1884, when they moved to Green County, Illinois, and settled on section 24, town 10, range 10, where the family grew into man and womanhood. His mother died in 1851. Mr. Rives was married to Elizabeth Ann Randle, daughter of Rev, George D. and Lucy Randle, August 28, 1848, in the little log cabin which stood on the hill one mile south of Rockbridge, near where the wagon road crossed Macoupin creek. Barr Township, in the neighboring county of Macoupin, on a farm purchased of Dr. Milton Metcalf, where they resided until 1858. When they moved back and took up their residence on the old Rives homestead, which he purchased of his father, who decided to remove to Greenfield, where he died in 1866. His father, James Rives, was a zealous and a very useful local preacher of the Methodist Episcopal Church, while his father-in-law, Rev. Randle was one of the earliest and most successful pioneer circuit preachers in this section of Illinois. John Rives and his family continued to reside in the old homestead until February, 1868. When they moved into the new brick home just erected a short distance east of the old homestead. Here they lived and raised their family, the son, Robert bring the only child born in the new house. Mrs. Rives, wife of John H. died January 31, 1894, but Mr. Rives continued to reside there and remained active in his business operations till the frailties of his body during the past winter and spring compelled him to remain in doors, and even then he continued to dictate the management of his large farm until he became too feeble to further attend to business in a proper manner. There were born to John H. and Elizabeth Ann Rives ten children, sick of who are yet living. Two died in infancy; Ella, a daughter, died in 1870, aged fifteen; Edward N. the second son, died in Morrisonville, Illinois, February 28, 1904. Those surviving are Andrew J. of Greenfield; Charles W. Of Greenfield; John of Palmyra, Illinois, Elizabeth wife of Ralph Metcalf, of Greenfield; George of Fayette, and Robert Rives of Muldon, Mississippi Mar. Rives also leaves surviving him three brothers and six sisters, twenty-four grandchildren and several great grandchildren, besides numerous other relatives and hosts of friends who deeply regret his parting from us. As a man of business Mr. Rives was eminently, successful, being possessed of 1,400 acres of land in Greene County and 480 acres in Cumberland County, Illinois, yet with all was noted as a broad-minded, liberal man charitable almost to a fault. As a citizen he took a deep interest in public affairs, especially desiring that our public officials be men of irreproachable character and thoroughly qualified for their various positions of trust and honor. Mr. Rives served for a time on the board of county commissioners of Greene County and discharged his duties in a thorough and satisfactory manner. He was likewise the first supervisor from Rockbridge Township when township organization was established in Green County. As a Christian Mr. Rives was plain, constant and true. In the winter of 1847-8 he attended McKendree College at Lebanon, Illinois. For a term of six months, where in January, 1848, he sought and obtained forgiveness of sin and joined the M. E. church afterwards transferring his membership successively to Asbury. Rivesville, Fayette, and Greenfield of which later church he was a member at the time of his death. Mr. Rives has often stated to the writer that he never for a moment doubted his Christian experience and so remained faithful until the day of his death. Thus passing away a useful, honored and upright Christian character. Funeral services were held at the late residence on Sunday afternoon conducted by Rev. T.J. Wheat, pastor of the M.E. church at Greenfield, and the vast multitude who attended, estimated by some at nearly one thousand gave ample proof of the high esteem in which he was held by his friends and neighbors. The interment took place in the Rives cemetery and short distance from the old homestead."2
