Abner RICE [QQ462462] (Daniel4, Daniel3, Edward2, Edmund1) , enumerated in 1800 at Turin, Oneida Co, NY282 {23:221B}, son of Daniel RICE and Elizabeth TAYLOR. He died about 1810197. A YDNA test for a living male Rice descendant provides strong evidence that Abner Rice was a descendant of Edmund Rice. However, there is no compelling evidence that this Abner Rice is the Abner Rice born 21 March 1726 at Marlborough. The will of Daniel Rice names a son Abner Rice as the last heir: ... Jabez, and Abner (when he comes of age) ... " which suggests that the Abner born 1726 died young and a later Abner was born after Jabez. As other known contemporary Abner Rices are accounted for, we have provisionally given this Abner Rice parents Daniel Rice and Elizabeth Taylor of Marlborough, but we have not identified him as the Abner Rice born 1726.
