My 3rd great-grandparents were Thomas Manson Rice, B: NOV 1828, Virginia, D: AFT 14 JUN 1900, Whitley, Kentucky and his wife Mary Elizabeth Pruitt, B: MAY 1830, Virginia, D: Unknown. I think his parents {my 4th great-grandparents}were Charles Rice, Birth 1789, Hawkins, Tennessee, D: 21 NOV 1862, Opossum Creek, Scott County, Virginia and his wife Mary B Rice, B: 1795, Virginia, D: 1865, Estellville, Scott, Virginia. I manage 8 DNA kits from this line on 23&Me, ftdna, Ancestry, My Heritage, and This is 1 of my several brick walls, any help researching my Rice Line would be appreciated getting this sorted out.

Ezekiel L Rice (1777-1862) DNA indicates is my 4th Gerat Grandfather and most family documents indicate that's true.  Going up the chain thru Ancestry is the following:  James W. Rice (1752)1827-Dlinor, James Rice (1724-1844-Mary Branhan, John Rice (1698-1769)-Mary Higgerson and Thomas Rice 1660-1711.

Can anyone help with support on this?

I am a direct descendent of Deacon Edmund Rice down 11 generations. Generation 5 is Barzillai Rice. He had a son Reuben born Sept. 3, 1776 at Dummerston, VT.  Reuben married Polly Jones 1796 and left her with a son in about 1798. What I would like to know is where he went and is buried. Any hints or help would be appreciated.

I'm looking for connections related to Thomas Rice around Loudoun County Virginia. Thomas was born 1779 with the following children

Rebecah 8 Jul 1801
Nancy 18 Jan 1803
Lusanada 21 Jan 1805
Maryann 17 Sep 1806
Catherine 27 Jul 1808
Elizabeth 11 May 1810
Thomas 1 Mar 1812
Perry Thomas 16 Sep 1826
James William 22 Mar 1828
Margaret 6 Nov 1830 

I'm from Perry Thomas Rice line who moved from Virginia to a little town in western Maryland (Mt. Savage). I have done DNA tests via FTDNA and am part of the Rice project (Edmond Rice).

I have linked/matched with some from that project but we can't seem to make a direct connection.

Any help would be appreciated.

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.
