Beulah RICE

This report includes only the first 6 generations of the Deacon Edmund RICE clan. A nine-generation version is available to members of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Learn more about Deacon Edmund RICE and these pages at our home page.



Beulah RICE [QQ2411, w400] (Jonathan4, Jonathan3, Henry2, Edmund1) , born 11 Dec 1716 at Sudbury, MA11,1 {p45},2 {p99}, daughter of Jonathan RICE and Lydia PRATT.

She married Hopestill BENT 22 Oct 1733 at Sudbury1 {p45},11 {169, 257},2 {p99}. He was born 4 Nov 1708 at Sudbury11,2 {p99}, died in 17722 {p99}, son of Hopestill BENT and Elizabeth BROWN. The Rice Gen'l Register mistakenly assigns Hopestill two sons named Peter. The first of those, born in 1741, was actually the son of Peter and Mary Bent.2 {p99},11

    Children of Beulah RICE and Hopestill BENT:

i
Jonathan BENT [QQ56595], born 24 Apr 1735 at Sudbury11,2 {p99}. He died 25 Dec 1755 at Sudbury11 {p296},2 {p99}.
ii
Lydia BENT [QQ56596], born 15 Jun 1738 at Sudbury11,2 {p99}.
iii
Elizabeth BENT [QQ56598], born 25 Mar 1744 at Sudbury11,2 {p99}. There is some dispute over the identification of various Elizabeth Bents. The Bent genealogy asserts that this Elizabeth married Micah Rice (q.v.), while the Rice Genealogical Register has her married to David Stone and assigns a different Elizabeth (daughter of John Bent) as wife of Micah Rice. Indeed, according to the Simon Stone Genealogy, both of these claims are wrong, and it was yet another Elizabeth Bent who married David Stone, namely, the daughter of Micah and Grace (Rice) Bent (q.v.). Pending resolution of this conflict, we are showing two Elizabeths married to two David Stones, but the details of their descendants are given only under the other Elizabeth.126 {p257},2 {p99},23 {p26}

She married David STONE Jr 17 Oct 1771 at Sudbury11,2 {p99}. He was thinly documented.
iv
Peter BENT [QQ119256], born 18 Jul 1745 at Sudbury11,2 {p99}. He died about 177870 {p134}.

He married Lucy STONE. She was born 1 Jan 1742 at Framingham, MA16, died 27 Jan 1783, aged 40y at Framingham (under the name Bent)16, was buried at Framingham, in Church Hill Cemetery16, daughter of Samuel STONE and Rebecca CLARK.
v

Israel RICE

This report includes only the first 6 generations of the Deacon Edmund RICE clan. A nine-generation version is available to members of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Learn more about Deacon Edmund RICE and these pages at our home page.



Israel RICE [QQ2414, w402] (David4, Jonathan3, Henry2, Edmund1) , born 20 Aug 1708 at Sudbury11,1 {p45}, son of David RICE and Elizabeth CUTLER. He died 13 Apr 1787, aged 78y at Sudbury, (not found in the published records)1 {p84}.

He married Sarah ROSS 5 Jun 1730 at Sudbury (under the name Rose)11,1 {45, 84},45 {p16}. She was born 16 Aug 1706 at Sudbury (under the name Ross)11, daughter of James ROSS and Elizabeth.

    Children of Israel RICE and Sarah ROSS:

i
Grace RICE [QQ5259, w1019], born 27 Feb 1734/35 at Sudbury11,1 {p85},2 {p184},45 {p16}. She died in 1821 at Hebron, ME2 {p184}.

She married Capt Ebenezer DUDLEY. He was born in 17352 {p104}, son of Benjamin DUDLEY and Elizabeth RICE. He made a will 15 Mar 17862 {p184}.
ii
Daniel RICE [QQ2961, w1020], born about 1736 at Sudbury, MA, (not found in the published records)2 {p227},45 {p34}. He died 2 Apr 1806, aged about 70 at East Sudbury (Wayland), MA62,1 {p150},2 {p227},45 {p34}.

He married Sarah RICE 28 Nov 1754 at Sudbury, MA11,1 {65, 85, 150},2 {p227},45 {p34}. She was thinly documented. Although Ward reports that Sarah Rice, who married Daniel Rice, was a daughter of Nathaniel and Sarah (Smith) Rice, we have a gravestone next to the gravestone of Sarah (Smith) Rice that reads: "Here Lyes Ye Body of Sarah Rice. Daughter of Mr. Nathaniel Rice & Mrs. Sarah Rice: Died Jan. 27th 1740 in Ye 3rd Year of her Age." This inscription gives compelling evidence that Sarah, who was born 3 September 1738, died 27 January 1740/41. Mother Sarah (Smith) Rice predeceased daughter Sarah on 4 January 1741. It is most unlikely that Nathaniel and Sarah Smith Rice would have named a second daughter named Sarah before the first daughter Sarah died. Therefore we must assume that the Sarah Rice who married Daniel Rice was not the daughter of Nathaniel and Sarah Smith Rice named by Ward.1 {p65},22 {61:123} They resided in several towns and had a large family, of which only two were known to WARD1 {p150}.
iii
Sarah RICE [QQ5260, w1021], born 9 Apr 1737 at Sudbury11,1 {p85}. She died young1 {p85}.

She married Micah HOWARD 6 Jun 1782 at Sudbury1 {p85},11 {p220}. He was thinly documented.
v
David RICE [QQ3037, w1023], born 2 Nov 1741 at Sudbury11,1 {p85}. Only three children are on record at Sudbury, but six had legacies by their grandfather Rice's will - "Joseph, the eldest, and five others."1 {p151}

He married first, Abigail RICE 20 Nov 1766 at Sudbury1 {68, 85, 151},11 {p257}. She was born 13 Apr 1748 at Sudbury11,1 {p68}, died before 1 Jul 1784, as her father's will describes her as deceased1 {p68}, daughter of Isaac RICE and Anna MIXER.

He married second, Ruth GARFIELD 9 Apr 1788 at Waltham, MA, both of East Sudbury (uncertain identification)101,62,1 {p151}. She was thinly documented.
vi
Israel RICE Jr [QQ5263, w1024], born about 17441 {p85}. He died 22 May 1789 at East Sudbury (Wayland), MA, (not found in the published records)1 {p151}.

Married Mary BACON. She was born 26 Jun 1752 at Natick, MA75, daughter of Henry BACON and Mary GAY. Israel RICE Jr and Mary BACON declared their intention to marry 9 May 1772 at Natick, but the banns were forbidden a week later by Mary's father75,1 {p151}.

He married second, Sarah GOODNOW 7 Apr 1774, (WARD indicates the town as Wayland, however, the town of East Sudbury, later renamed Wayland, had not been set off from Sudbury at this time) at Sudbury, MA1 {85, 151},45 {p34},11 {p259}. She was thinly documented.
vii
Henry RICE [QQ5265, w1025], born 14 Apr 1746 at Sudbury11,1 {p85}. He resided before 1797 at Cambridge, MA, where he kept a public house1 {p151}. He resided in 1806 at Barre, MA, where he was an inn-holder, and soon after moved away, leaving no record of children there1 {p151}.

He married Lucinda BROOKS 23 May 1797 at Barre97,1 {p151}. She was born about 17671 {p151}, died Mar 1804, aged 37y at Barre, (not found in the published records)1 {p151}, daughter of Dr. Ephraim BROOKS.
viii
Lydia RICE [QQ5266, w1026], born 15 Feb 1747/48 at Sudbury, MA11,1 {p85}.

Grace RICE

This report includes only the first 6 generations of the Deacon Edmund RICE clan. A nine-generation version is available to members of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Learn more about Deacon Edmund RICE and these pages at our home page.



Grace RICE [QQ2416, w404] (David4, Jonathan3, Henry2, Edmund1) , born about 1714 at Sudbury, (not found in the published records)1 {p45},2 {p99}, daughter of David RICE and Elizabeth CUTLER.

She married Micah BENT in 1737 at Sudbury1 {p45},2 {p99},45 {p6},11 {169, 258}. He was born 29 Apr 1716 at Sudbury2 {p99},11 {p17}, died in 17602 {p99}, son of Hopestill BENT and Elizabeth BROWN. His estate was inventoried 24 Dec 176023 {p27}.

    Children of Grace RICE and Micah BENT:

i
David BENT [QQ56600], born 18 Mar 1738/39, (literally 1738) at Sudbury11,2 {99, 176}. He died about 1797 at Annapolis, Annapolis Co, NS2 {p176},115. He made a will 3 Dec 1796 at Annapolis, NS, mentioning wife Mary.., children Stephen, Asa, David, Silas, William, Joseph, Sarah Pool, Mary Herrington, and Dorcas Longley; and grandson Beriah Bent, a minor. The estate was settled in 1797 as seen in Estate Folio B11115.

Married Mary FELCH. She was born 9 Feb 1739/40 at Natick, MA75, died in 18132 {p84}, daughter of Ebenezer FELCH and Mary BACON. David BENT and Mary FELCH declared their intention to marry 6 Jun 1761 at Natick, listed as David of Sudbury75,2 {99, 176}. They were enumerated in 1768 at Annapolis, Annapolis Co, NS, with four males and two females, all American born, in the household117 {p152}. They were enumerated in 1770 at Annapolis, with 8 in the household, two American and six Acadian born117 {p155}. Your authors note that the birth years for David and Mary Bent's children, unless cited to an authoritative source, are not reliable.
ii
William BENT [QQ8902], born 8 Jun 1741 at Sudbury, MA11,2 {99, 177}. He died 26 Apr 1829 at East Sudbury (Wayland), MA62,2 {p177}.

He married Abigail BRUCE. She was born 3 May 1754 at Southborough, MA55,2 {177, 337}, died in 18452 {p177}, daughter of Josiah BRUCE and Bridget PIERCE.
iii
Ann BENT [QQ56602], born 8 Apr 1744 at Sudbury, MA11,2 {p100}.

She married Daniel FELCH 12 May 1763 at Sudbury, listed as Daniel of Natick and Ann of Sudbury11,75,2 {84, 100}. He was born 8 Dec 1734 at Natick, MA75,2 {p84}, son of Ebenezer FELCH and Mary BACON. It is very likely that this is the Daniel Felch family enumerated in the 1768 census with three in his household, two male and one female, and in the 1770 census, five in his household all "American" born, at Annapolis, Nova Scotia, and Daniel Felch on the 1765 request for confirmation for township status and 1792 tax rolls for Annapolis. Daniel and Ann would be siblings of David Bent and Mary Felch who are also in this data set and are documented at Annapolis, Nova Scotia after 1763. Regrettably, the Felch family records for the late 18th century at Annapolis are very incomplete.
iv
Sarah BENT [QQ56603], born 19 Mar 1745/46 at Sudbury, MA11,2 {p100}.
v
Jane BENT [QQ119260], baptized 13 Nov 1748 at Sudbury69 {p526}.

She married Jonas HARRINGTON 13 Feb 1766 at Sudbury11,69 {p265},2 {p100}. He was born 21 Sep 1740 at Weston, MA69 {p50}, son of Jonas HARRINGTON and Abigail STEARNS. Jonas HARRINGTON and Jane BENT declared their intention to marry 11 Jan 1766 at Weston, listed as Jonas of Weston and Jane of Sudbury69 {p113}.
vi
Elizabeth BENT [QQ119264], born about 1750 at Sudbury, MA126 {p256}.

She married first, David STONE 17 Oct 1771 at Sudbury11,126 {p256},2 {p100}. He was born 13 May 1747 at Sudbury11,126 {143, 256}, died in 1777126 {p256}, son of David STONE and Mary MOORE. Occupation: a tanner126 {p256}. The identification of his wife is a matter of some dispute. Bartlett's Simon Stone Genealogy, which we are following, describes her as the daughter of Micah and Grace (Rice) Bent, but the Rice Genealogical Register says she was the daughter of Hopestill and Beulah (Rice) Bent (q.v.). It is clear that only one David Stone is at issue, but there are two candidate wives. His estate was inventoried 17 Nov 1777 at 226.9.3, and administration was granted on 24 Feb 1778 to his widow Elizabeth. The probate records mention children Betsey, Aaron, and Ephraim, whose guardian was Caleb Moulton.126 {p257},20 {docket 21566} They resided at Framingham, MA126 {p256}.

She married second, TUCKER, second23 {p27},2 {p100}. He was thinly documented.

Occupation: a physician, after 17731 {p114}. Removed 17 May 1760 from Boston, on the Charming Molly with 45 persons aboard. On board were three Rice men -- Benjamin, Stephen, and Beriah2 {p116}. He resided between 1760 and 1769 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, and is listed as a petitioner for the Grant of Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis, 30 October 1765 and living single in the 1768 census for Annapolis. His name does not appear in the 1770 census for Annapolis117 {151, 153, 156},116 {p105},1 {p114}. Graduated in 1773 - Harvard College, Cambridge, MA, attending from 17691 {p114}.

He married Susannah HILL 20 Apr 1780 at Sherborn, listed as Susannah of Holliston76,2 {100, 178}. She was born about Jun 1751, as calculated from her death record, was baptized 15 Jul 1753 at 1st Congregational Church, Holliston, MA90, died 25 Sep 1841, aged 90y 3m (under the name Whitney)76,2 {p178}, was buried at Sherborn, MA, in West Sherborn Cemetery76, daughter of Isaac HILL and Lydia. The Rice Gen'l Register asserts that Susannah was the widow of James Hill. However, there is no trace of any such James Hill in the vital records of either Holliston or Sherborn, while the records do show a Susannah Hill baptized at Holliston about the right time. We therefore take her maiden name to be Hill after all, until and unless some evidence appears to substantiate the tale of a previous marriage.2 {p178}

Ezra WHITNEY

This report includes only the first 6 generations of the Deacon Edmund RICE clan. A nine-generation version is available to members of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Learn more about Deacon Edmund RICE and these pages at our home page.



Ezra WHITNEY [QQ2432, w415] (Martha4 RICE, Jonathan3, Henry2, Edmund1) , born 22 Feb 1729/30 at Sherborn, MA76,1 {p45},2 {p100},45 {p6}, son of James WHITNEY and Martha RICE. He died 24 Sep 18042 {p100}. The Rice Genealogical Register lists Agnes Ross as Ezra's second wife, married 1760, and Elizabeth as his third wife. The Douglas vital records list Mary (Marey) as the mother of all of his children. The second marriage is in error and the third one is unlikely.

He married Mercy MORSE 14 Feb 1754 at Sherborn76,2 {p100},45 {p6}. She was born 2 Mar 1735 at Sherborn76, died 23 Sep 1794, (died on birth date per Rice Gen'l Register), aged 58y at Uxbridge, MA (under the name Whitney)189,2 {p100}, daughter of Obadiah MORSE and Mercy WALKER. In most of the birth records for her children in the Douglas vital records, her name has been transcribed as "Marey", but it was undoubtedly intended as "Marcy".

He was buried at Rockingham, VT, in Saxtons River Cemetery56. Ward's account of this Hezekiah is thoroughly confused with that of his cousin Hezekiah (WRN 1123). The two Hezekiahs married sisters Abigail and Elizabeth Eames, and Ward has them backwards. Furthermore, Ward ascribes the same military service record to both, and applies the designation "Junior" to the wrong one. The citations to Ward herein have been sorted out to refer to actual events, regardless of Ward's misallocations. Nonetheless, further research may be needed to clear up any remaining confusion about military service.1 {85, 90, 151, 156},2 {227, 238},45 {p35} He was in the military in 1776, serving in Prentiss' Company, Marshall's Regiment, stationed on Noddle's Island in Boston harbor, according to Ward, but in Captain Joseph Winch's Company of Samuel Bullard's regiment according to a DAR lineage1 {p151},182 {67:66}.
