Hi Charlie, Just alittle background:My Maternal Grandparents were Franklin Robert Allen (Frank) md Vesta Rose.They both grew up, married and raised their children in Wray, Colorado.
Frank Allen (bn 1890) had a sister Jessie Allen (bn 1887) who married Emery Rife & raised her children in the Wray, Colorado area on a farm.My Mother (Billie) says her very best childhood memories were of her Aunt Jessie,the kidsand that farm. In 1948 when Frank died his obit states his sister Jessie Rife was living in Salem, OR.She died in 1983 in Salem, OR.
I have a lovely picture of a young woman, Stella Rife, from my Grandmother Vesta's personal things.I think it may be a child of Emery & Jessie Rife.I know how very precious the photos of my ancestors are to me and I would like to find out if Stella Rife married and had a family.This photo belongs with them.
Dont have any other info on the Rife line but if you run into this family group please let me know.
