I'm trying to get information on the parents and ancestry for Victor J. Rivers, born in 1865 in Canada.  He married MarY L. Gendrom b. 1868 also in Canada.  They arrived in the United States in 1881 and settled in Windosr, Connecticut.  They are my paternal great-grandparents and I'd appreciate any help you can provide.
