    Anecdote 4 Jul 1976  [2
    published Riffle Family Tree 
    • Debbie and Mack's daughter Kathy was given a fairly standard "family tree" assignment at school, and it triggered somewhat of an obsession for Debbie. She discovered that her own family was fairly well documented, (her grandfather had prepared a family tree years before) but that her husband Mack's family was not quite so well known.

      Debbie began to research Mack's family, in particular his mother's side, the Riffles, both in an effort to break through the brick wall of Samuel Scott Riffle's parentage and to gather as much information on his living descendants as she could.

      She and Mack decided to target July 4, 1976, our nation's bicentennial, as a publication date for a book of SS Riffle's descendants. That book was sent out to the Riffle descendants and is still tresured as a resource and touchstone of connectivity more than 30 years later.

      Mack Price wrote the preface to this document:
      "Samuel Scott Riffle reached his majority as the United States observed its Centennial. Today, as the Nation celebrates its Bicentennial, his line stretches from sea to sea in five living generations. It is to his memory and that of his forbears and progeny that this compilation is sincerely dedicated."
