Bathshebah RICE [QQ58841, w1580], born 6 Oct 1753 at Nichewaug (Petersham), MA123,45 {p25}. On 17 April 1755 Bathshebah Rice from "Nitchewoag" was cautioned, meaning that one was given a "warning out of town" to incomers by the constable, thus by law exempted the individual from liability for the future support by the community in case they became a public charge. The high and the low, the rich and the poor, all had warnings upon moving their residence into another town, or coming in to tarry there for a short time. No offence was taken at such messages from the constable, and they passed unheeded. Yet in not in every instance, for a family of property and good standing came in from another State, who knew nothing of such a practice; and, upon sitting down to abide in one of our towns, was warned, "by authority," and "without a why or a wherefore," to depart the town. The astonished husband laid it to heart, and discoursed inquiringly with his wife what it could mean. She could not imagine for the life of her what it was for! "Have you said or done any thing here to give offence?" quoth she, looking up in his face. "I have done no more than civilly pass the time o'day with people since we have been here." "Well, then, who knows but they think we have got the small-pox?" Thus they queried, but could not account for it. The husband, having laid awake upon it during the night, told his wife in the morning that he was going to pack up his things and go somewhere else, "for this is no great of a place after all!"1 {p118} There were an Amos Rice and a Silas Rice living at Petersham in 1777.
