*Hiram Rivenburgh....always followed the occupation of farming as a life work and at which time he took up his abode in Osco Township, Pa., where he purchased one hundred and sixty acres of school land. He was an enterprising, energetic and successful business man and as he prospered in his undertakings he added to his farm lands until his possessions aggregated six hundred acres. For about forty-five years he remained in this county and then removed to Peabody, Kansas, where he died at the age of seventy-five years.
His wife survived him and passed away at the age of eighty-four years. Mr. Rivenburgh was a member of the Presbyterian Church, while his wife was an equally consistent Christian in her relation to the Baptist Church.
Their family numbered four sons and one daughter: Sophia, the wife of Philip Weidlein, of Kansas City, Missouri; George H., of Geneseo; Clark; Le Grand, of Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Hiram, of Peabody, Kansas.
