Marsha, thank you very much for the information you posted it helped fill in the blanks that my father Richard Rife, son of Wayne, could not remember. Oddly enough Wayne Rife, son of Wesley, also married an Ethel. She is my grandmother, she still lives in Caldwell at 90yrs young. In a strang twist of fate I live in Salem, Oregon were both Emery and Jessie passed away (I assume they lived here too). I'm going to look around here in Salem for any records of Rifes specifically Emery and Jessie anything I find I will share with you. I believe knowing where you come from helps you make better choices about where you are going. Thanks again, Jason Rife.
