Asa RICE [QQ2823, w632] (Thomas4, Anna3, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 8 Aug 1726 at Westborough, MA57,1 {p61}, son of Thomas RICE and Mary HOLLOWAY. He died about Apr 1778 at Northborough, MA, (not found in the published records)1 {p107}. He was in the military in 1757, serving in the French War from Westborough, belonging to Capt. Bezaleel Eager's Company1 {p107}. He made a will Mar 1778, mentioning wife Betsy; daughter Asenath Hastings; sons Luther, Calvin, and Israel; and an unborn child who is to receive 50 at age 21. Son Luther, Executor1 {p107}. His will was proved 6 May 17781 {p107}.

He married first, Elizabeth LIVERMORE, Elizabeth of Northborough1 {61, 107}. She was born 26 May 1725 at Watertown, MA34 {2:80},1 {p107}, died Feb 1775 at Northborough, MA, (not found in the published records)1 {p107}, daughter of Deacon Jonathan LIVERMORE and Abigail BALL. Asa RICE and Elizabeth LIVERMORE resided at Northborough1 {p107}.

He married second, Betsy TAYLOR 20 May 1777 at Northborough1 {p107},59 {p110}. She was thinly documented.

    Children of Asa RICE and Elizabeth LIVERMORE:

i
Catherine RICE [QQ58563, w1421], born 13 Dec 1749 at Westborough, MA57,1 {p107}. She died before 1778, as she was not mentioned in her father's will.
ii
Asenath RICE [QQ58566, w1423], born about 1751 at Northborough, MA287. She died 4 Sep 1836 at Marlborough, NH219 {p523},287.

She married Thaddeus HASTINGS 13 Dec 1774, (20th per Ward) at Northborough, MA59,1 {p107}. He was baptized 12 Oct 1746 at Shrewsbury, MA22 {77:20},287, died 30 Nov 1838 at Marlborough, NH219 {p523},287, son of Nathaniel HASTINGS and Esther PERRY. Thaddeus is said to have settled in Marlboro, NH in 1770 without a family and was the first settler on the farm known, in 1906, as the Hastings place. At the first town meeting of the incorporated town in 1777 he and three others were elected as "fence viewers". (History of Marlboro, NH)

    The Military History of Marlboro includes Thaddeus as a Revolutionary War soldier; however his application for pension in 1834 was rejected by the court because he did not serve six months. He did serve in the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia in the War of 1812 from 13 September to 7 November 1814 in Capt. J. Tucker's Company, Lt. Col. J. Page's Regiment at Ft. Warren, Boston Harbor.287
iii
Luther RICE [QQ58564, w1422], born in 17551 {p185},2 {p261}. He died 21 Nov 1818, aged 63y at Worcester, MA181,1 {p185},2 {p261}. He was buried at West Boylston, MA, in Town Cemetery181. He was in the military in 1775, serving in Wood's Company, Ward's Regiment from Northborough, Mass1 {p185}.

He married Betsy BEAMAN in 1786, Betsy of Boylston1 {107, 185},45 {p45}. She was born 12 Jun 1767 at Shrewsbury, MA52,1 {p185},2 {p261}, died 16 Apr 1836, aged 69y (under the name Rice)181,1 {p185},2 {p261}, was buried at West Boylston, MA, in Town Cemetery181, daughter of Major Ezra BEAMAN and Persis KEYES. She made a will 30 Jan 1836, mentioning daughters Betsy Eames and Persis Eames, son-in-law Joseph A. Reed who married daughter Mary B. Rice, other daughters Harriet Nickson, Levinah B. Reed, and Catherine French, and sons Asa Rice and Jabez Rice named as executors1 {p185}. Her will was proved 7 Jun 18361 {p185}. They declared their intention to marry 29 Jul 1786 at Boylston, MA96,2 {p261}. They resided at West Boylston, Oakham, and lastly at Worcester1 {p185}. Supplement 1 and the Rice Gen'l Register mistakenly attribute two children to this family who belong to a different couple also named Luther and Betsy/Elizabeth Rice. In fact, this other couple lived in Boylston from the 1780's to about 1810, thus doubling the confusion, as Betsy Beaman came from that town. Nonetheless, there are sufficient clues to disentangle the two families, including Betsy's will (q.v.) and the Revolutionary War pension claim filed by the other Luther after moving to Maine. The only really confusing aspect is that both families had daughters named Betsy in the year 1786, but only one of the births is recorded in the vital records. Even here, the ambiguity is resolved by the fact that the recorded birth (in Boylston) came before the intention of marriage was even filed for this Luther Rice and Betsy Beaman.1 {p185},14 {44, 45}
iv
Calvin RICE [QQ58568, w1424]. He moved away from Northborough after the three children were born.1 {p185}

He married Betty MAYNARD. She was born 26 Apr 1760 at Westborough, MA57,1 {p140}, daughter of Phineas MAYNARD and Dorothy RICE. Calvin RICE and Betty MAYNARD declared their intention to marry 6 Aug 1779 at Northborough, MA, listed as Calvin of Northborough and Betty of Westborough59,1 {107, 185}. They resided at Northborough1 {p185}.
v
Israel RICE [QQ58570, w1425].


    Children of Asa RICE and Betsy TAYLOR:
i
Betty RICE [QQ58571, w1426], born 25 Jun 1778, (posthumous)1 {p107}. She died 10 Feb 1807, aged 28y 7m at Northborough1 {p107},59 {p146}. She never married.1 {p107}

Persis RICE [QQ58572, w1427], born 19 Nov 1737 at Westborough, MA57,1 {p107},2 {p261},45 {p22},56. She died 6 Sep 1820 (under the name Putnam)56. She was buried at Marietta, OH, in Mound Cemetery56.

She married Rufus PUTNAM 10 Jan 1765 at Westborough, MA, listed as Rufus of Brookfield and Persis of Westborough57,109,1 {p107},2 {p261},45 {p22}. He was born 9 Apr 1738 at Sutton, MA300,73,56, died 4 May 1824 at Marietta, OH300,56, was buried at Marietta, in Mound Cemetery56,300, son of Elisha PUTNAM. He was in the military serving in the Continental Army from 1775 to 1783. After the battle of Lexington, Putnam enlisted the same day, on April 19, 1775, in one of Massachusett's first revolutionary regiments. Putnam later was commissioned in the Continental Army as a Lieutenant Colonel, under the command of David Brewer. Brewer's regiment first engaged with the British Army in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Drawing from his knowledge and skill as a millwright, Putnam constructed the fortifications necessary to obtain victory. His fortifications provided an advantage to the Continental Army, which secured victories at Sewall's Point, Providence, New Port, Dorchester Heights, Long Island, and West Point.

    General Washington appointed Putnam to be the Chief of Engineers of the Works of New York. He was soon promoted to engineer with the rank of colonel. When in December 1776 the Continental Congress rejected his proposition to establish a national corps of engineers, Putnam resigned.

    He reenlisted in the Northern Army and served under Major General Horatio Gates. Putnam commanded two regiments in the battle of Saratoga. He continued to work on critical fortifications, including Fort Putnam at West Point in 1778. In 1779 Putnam served under Major General Anthony Wayne in the Corps of Light Infantry following the capture of Stony Point, commanding the 4th Regiment. Putnam's remaining military career was less eventful. In January 1783 he was commissioned as brigadier general.. In 1788 Putnam led a group of Revolutionary veterans to settle the land in what became Ohio. These pioneers arrived at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers on April 7, 1788, where they established Marietta, Ohio as the first permanent United States settlement in the Northwest Territory. Putnam was appointed to serve as one of three judges of the Northwest Territory after Samuel Holden Parsons died.

    The territory had been historically occupied by Native American tribes, and more were driven west by colonial encroachment before the Revolution. As they had not ceded any land, they came into conflict with the arriving pioneers. They organized a coalition of tribes to try to expel the Americans from their territory.

    From 1792 to 1793, Putnam served as a brigadier general in Anthony Wayne's Ohio campaign against these Native American tribes, including Shawnee, Lenape and Seneca, who were ultimately defeated. In 1796, Putnam was appointed by the President as the first Surveyor General of the United States, a position he held until 1803. As Ohio residents organized to write a constitution and be admitted as a state, in 1802 Putnam was elected a Washington county delegate to the Ohio Constitutional Convention.

    He was appointed as a Trustee of Ohio University, where he served for two decades, from 1804 to 1824. It was constructed on public lands, under the terms of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787.300

Oliver 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.



Oliver RICE [QQ2831, w636] (Charles4, Anna3, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 2 May 1717 at Marlborough (Westborough), MA3,1 {p61}, son of Charles RICE and Rachel WHEELER. He resided after 1739 at Hardwick, MA, where he had purchased land1 {p108}. He was in the military in 1757, serving as a soldier from Hardwick1 {p108}. Children were born at Hardwick, and recorded there, but so mutilated are the records that the names of four of them are lost. No record there of the death of either of the parents.1 {p109}

He married Hannah BARTLET 30 Jun 1742 at Grafton, MA, listed as Oliver of Shrewsbury and Hannah of Grafton (erroneously called Hannah Barrett by Ward)83,52,1 {61, 108},45 {p22}. She was born about 1724, as calculated from the baptism, was baptized 27 Jul 1741, aged about 17 at Grafton83. The connection of Hannah to the Bartlet family in Newbury has been proposed. That connection is based entirely on the lack of any other known Hannah Bartlet of the right age in Massachusetts.

    Children of Oliver RICE and Hannah BARTLET:

She married Abner MARBLE 19 Apr 1768 at Hardwick, listed as Abner of Petersham. There is some uncertainty about the parents of Zerviah Rice. As the Petersham marriage intention lists Zerviah of Hardwick, we believe this is compelling evidence that her father was Oliver Rice of Hardwick114,1 {p109}. He was thinly documented. He resided at Petersham, MA1 {p109}. They declared their intention to marry 1 Apr 1768 at Petersham, listed as Zerviah of Hardwick123 {p136}.

Anna RICE [QQ1780, w638] (Charles4, Anna3, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 6 May 1722 at Westborough, MA57,1 {p61}, daughter of Charles RICE and Rachel WHEELER. She died after 1770 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, as deduced from the census. The 1768 census for Annapolis lists Ebenezer Rice with 1 male and 3 females in the household. Sons Benjamin and Joseph are listed separately. (Cousin Beriah Rice's family had already moved away.) The three females can only be Anna (wife), Sarah (b1753), and Elizabeth (b1756) as daughter Anna died in 1751. The 1770 census lists four persons in the household, all American. Therefore, your authors believe that Anna was alive at Annapolis in 1768 and 1770117 {153, 156}.

She married Ebenezer RICE 23 Mar 1743 at Westborough, MA, listed as Ebenezer of Southborough57,1 {61, 83},45 {p15}.

He chose his uncle Stephen Williams, brother of his mother, as guardian on July 12, 1727.1 {p44} Ebenezer RICE and Anna RICE resided after Apr 1743 at Westborough, MA1 {p83}. They resided after 1760, (Ward mistakenly has them moving to Conway, where some of their children settled) at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS1 {p83},117 {153, 156},116 {p105}.

Charles RICE [QQ2835, w641] (Charles4, Anna3, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 1 Mar 1730/31 at Westborough57, son of Charles RICE and Rachel WHEELER. He died about 14 Mar 1758 at Brookfield, MA1 {p111}. Charles was killed by Indians prior to 1758. Ward's The Rice Family indicates that he, living in Westboro', served for 6 months in John Toplin's (militia) company in 1755 and in 1757 with Captain Fay's (militia) company. It doesn't indicate whether Charles was killed by Indians while on active duty or during some other encounter. Evidently he and Leah Jennings were only married for 3 months before his death. His widow Leah settled his estate. Inventory 425 29 December 1758, one item of which included 100 acres of land in Brookfield, held by deed from his brother Elijah Rice, dated 16 February 1754.

    In settlement of her administration account, 30 April 1761, Leah claimed "allowance for supporting Charles, the only child of her husband Charles, 3 years old the 7th of March last, being but one week old at the death of his father."1 {p111}

He married Leah JENNINGS 6 Jan 1758 at Brookfield, not listed as Charles of Westborough and Leah of Brookfield1 {61, 111},45 {p22},109 {p393}. She was born about 1737, as calculated from the gravestone, but she may have been the Leah Jennings whose birth was recorded in Brookfield in 1731109,56, died 5 Aug 1811, aged 74y at Westminster, VT308,56, was buried at Westminster, in Old East Parish Cemetery56.

Hepzibeth BRADISH

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.



Hepzibeth BRADISH [QQ4242] (Damaris4 RICE, Anna3, Edward2, Edmund1) , born 23 Aug 1709 at Marlborough, MA3,2 {p27},46 {1:38}, daughter of James BRADISH and Damaris RICE.

She married Aaron HARDY 24 Mar 1730 at Westborough, MA2 {p27},57 {p128}. He was born about 1705309 {p385}, was enumerated between 1768 and 1770 at Annapolis, Annapolis Co, NS, enumerated in 1768 with one male and one female, both (North) American born; enumerated in 1770 with two in his household, both American (not Nova Scotia) born117 {153, 155}, son of Samuel HARDY and Rebecca FORBUSH. He resided about 1765 at Annapolis, as his name appeared on the petition to Grant Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis116 {p105}. Although the Hardy/Hardie family genealogy lists Aaron Hardy's parents as John Hardy and Anne Savory of Bradford, MA, we have found no other evidence to support that supposed parent-child relationship. The 1710 census for Stamford, CT lists the children of Samuel and Rebecca (Forbush) Hardy. The published vital records for Westborough and Grafton show that sons Samuel, Daniel, and Phineas Hardy settled there in the early 1700s. The familial relationships provide compelling circumstantial evidence that Aaron was the brother of Samuel, Daniel, and Phineas and the son of Samuel Hardy and Rebecca Forbush. That this Aaron Hardy and his son Aaron (Jr) emigrated to Nova Scotia in the early 1760s is also based on circumstantial evidence. We encourage further research to provide more compelling evidence that this father and son are the same Aaron Hardys who emigrated to Nova Scotia. They were grantors in a land transaction selling land to Joel Brooks 7 May 1759 at Grafton, MA139 {Worcester County 42:561}.

    Children of Hepzibeth BRADISH and Aaron HARDY:

She married Mark COLLINS 8 Jul 1756 at Grafton, MA, listed as Mark of Southborough83. He died 20 Aug 1803, aged 74y at Southborough, MA55.
iv
Aaron HARDY [QQ260775], born 14 Dec 1737 at Westborough, MA57. He died before Apr 1810115 {419 #3653, estate folio H29}. He resided in 1765 at Annapolis, Annapolis Co, NS, as his name appeared on the petition to Grant Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis116 {p105}. He made a will 10 May 1809, which was filed for probate 12 April 1810. Children: Silas Hardy, Marcy Wetherspoon, Aaron Hardy, Martha Slirk, Lydia Heaton, Hephsibeth Hardy, Anne Rice, Levinia Hood, Sarah Hardy, Polly Hardy115 {#3653}.

He married first, Lydia WOODS 11 May 1763 at Southborough, MA55. She was born 9 Sep 1742 at Southborough55, daughter of Ephraim WOODS and Mercy JOHNSON.

He married second, Eunice GASKILL before 1770 in Nova Scotia. The Southborough vital records list the marriage of Aaron Hardy and Lydia Woods on 11 May 1763. It is likely that this is either the second marriage of Aaron Hardy (Sr) or first marriage of Aaron Hardy (Jr). Was Eunice Gaskill the Eunice who was the wife of son Silas Hardy? A search of deeds for Worcester County and Annapolis County will perhaps resolve this question310 {p304}. She was thinly documented.
