Hello,  I also have Rice ancestors in Kentucky.  My ancestor is Mary Moore Rice, who married Leander Bradshaw in Oldham Co, KY, in 1839.  Mary's father was Rev. Thomas Moore Rice, and her mother was Betsy Bain. Parents of Thomas were Samuel Rice and Mary Moore.

Hello, I am researching the Hezekiah Rice family that apparently started out in VA, spent some time in NC, and ended up in Union County SC. A lot of information in the DAR records are coming to light as incorrect, and I'm trying to find truth (or at least facts...  haha!)  and yes, there were at *least* three Hezekiah Rice's out there, and I'm sure there are more...  Any help is appreciated, and if you are interested in what I have found, please reply.

Looking for information on Rice family from Minnesota. My grandfather was Elmer James Rice (born James Elmer Rice) born August 27, 1890. He was the son of Obadiah Henry Rice and Caroline (Carrie) Rice. She was a Thompson. He married Esther Ostlund and had a son named Raymond that died young. His siblings were Roy, Clarence, Josie and Laura. Any information about his life and family would be appreciated.

I am looking for information on the Walter Alexus Rice and Miriam Garrison family. I was told he was born in New York then mived to Iowa. Some records have him listed as WA Rice. According to his gravesite date of birth is May 2, 1821 and death July 2, 1902. I am a decendent of his son William H Rice (1857-1930) who married Mary Heine (1861-?), then my gg-grandfather Was William Alan Rice (1891-1959) and he married Marie Graves and they lived in Tenstrike, Minnesota. My grandfather is William A Rice II who married Inez Moon.

If anyone has more information on any of these families I would love to hear from you!

This is a correction for Laura Rice and Wilks Chalk children. Marie Chalk, Lillie Mae Chalk and Elwillie chalk are not the children of Laura Rice. They are the oldest children of Wilks Chalk. They are the children of Wilks Chalks' first wife Annie Palmer Chalk. Laura Chalk was Wilks Chalk's second wife.

I am descended from John W. Rice (1793 - 1862) of New Market, VA. He was one of the largest land owners & slave holders in the Shenandoah Valley & lived in Stanley Hall (which still stands) just north of New Market. Would greatly appreciate any information on this Rice family. Thank you.
