  2. [S520] VWH, Peter Rinely (b. ca. 1819) is named as Peter Jr. in his marriage record of 1843. Peter Jr. and Daniel Rinely (b. ca. 1822) in 1880 census both have father b. PA and mother b. VA. Francis Rinely (b. ca. 1793) is in house of John W Rinely (b. ca. 1830) in 1856 (as female, age 61, b. VA) and in 1860 (as male, age 67, b. VA). From this it is deduced that this Francis is female, b. VA, and the mother of John.
    Both Peter Jr. and Henry Rinely (b. ca. 1827) had daughters named Francis or Frances, a clue that their mother may have been named Francis.
    From this, this genealogy believes it is probable that Peter Rinely Sr. is the father of all four - Peter Jr., Daniel, Henry and John Wilson Rinely. Francis Rinely (b. ca. 1793) is probably his widow and the mother of all four.
    There are two other Rinely entries found in the Pike Co. OH marriage records. Elizabeth married, in 1835, Armstead Wright, so she may have been b. ca. 1815, and may be the sister of the four brothers. Rebecca Rinely married, in 1821, William O'Brien, so she may have been b. ca. 1800, and may the sister (or cousin) of Peter Sr.
