I have no original documentation or documents regarding C. Green Rives; however, much is written about Claudius Green Rives in the "Reliques of the Rives" by James Rives Childs (Copies can be found on the Internet and reprints from Higginson Book Company, Salem, Massachusetts, etc.). There is also a book out on Green Rives and Family which I have seen for sale from time to time on E-Bay. Cousin W. Patrick Reaves has published a book last year "The Ryves-Rives-Reaves Families of Europe and America" (A. H. Cather Publishing Co., Birmingham, Al). Pat Reaves is presently the main "family" historian and you might contact him to see if he can help you. If you will contact me directly at I will see if he would contact you directly as I don't like to give out other people's email info without their prior approval.
