About Mary Rives

Mary Jordan-[4151] was born in 1726 in Isle Of Wight Co, VA and died on 29 Oct 1813 in Traveler's Rest, Davidson Co., TN.

Perry, "These Jordan's Were Here", p. 61 claims she was born in "Mankin" (no state given. Possibly a misspelling of the Huegonot town of Manakin Town? She married, according to Perry, George Rives, of Huegonot descent, and moved to Davidson Co., TN where she died. Dates as if from a Bible source, but bible not quoted per se. See RELIQUES OF THE RIVES, by James Rives Childs, J.P. Bell & Company, Inc. of Lynchburg, VA, 1929, p. 323-335. Traveler's Rest is a landmark outside the city of Nashville, TN.
