These three actors from The Rifleman were family in real life
Harry Carey's father was Harry Carey Sr., the silent film star and later B-movie cowboy and A-list character actor and his mother was Olive Carey who also appeared in The Rifleman in Shivaree as Ma Wilson.
He was the son-in-law of ours truly, Paul Fix. He was married to Paul's daughter Marilyn.
This is interesting because Paul Fix's niece, Carolyn, did his biography for me years ago. She got permission from Paul's daughter, Marilyn to do this for me. Of course Marilyn was married to Harry Carey Jr.
Thanks for posting!
