Moses 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.



Moses RICE [QQ3130, w816] (Jonas4, Jonas3, Thomas2, Edmund1) , born 16 Nov 1729 at Worcester, MA68,1 {p72}, son of Deacon Jonas RICE and Jane HALL.

He married Elizabeth GLEASON 21 Mar 1755, (May per Ward) at Framingham, MA, listed as Moses of Rutland and Elizabeth of Framingham16,98,1 {72, 130}. She was born in 17351 {p130}, daughter of Ebenezer GLEASON and Thankful JOHNSON. There is a problem here. The only 1735 birth of an Elizabeth Gleason in Framingham shows her parents as Ebenezer and Elizabeth, not Ebenezer and Thankful as asserted by Ward. That birth record cannot be explained as an momentary clerical error, since the death of Elizabeth Gleason, wife of Ebenezer, was recorded just a month afterward. Also, the other Ebenezer and his wife Thankful had a son Ebenezer just a few months after that. For that matter, another Elizabeth was born in 1733 to Phineas and Elizabeth Gleason. In short, our Elizabeth's birth and parentage are uncertain.16

    Children of Moses RICE and Elizabeth GLEASON:

i
Phineas RICE [QQ59231, w1788], born 24 Mar 1756 at Rutland District (Barre), MA97,1 {p130}.

She was born 9 Apr 1741 at Framingham, MA, but this identification is extremely doubtful. Only one of the four children of Thomas and Hannah (Wright) Rice was named after an identifiable member of Thomas' family (i.e., Thomas himself), and the three others do not match any of the names in the family of Nehemiah Wright of Framingham. Moreover, none of those Wrights moved to what became Barre. Further, this date of birth does not even line up with the reported age at death. The best that can be said of this identification is that no other, better one has yet appeared16 {p212}, died 20 Jan 1774, aged 31y at Rutland District (Barre), MA (under the name Rice)97,1 {p131}, daughter of Nehemiah WRIGHT and Mary GATES.

He married third, Abigail BARBER 11 Sep 1800 at Barre97,1 {p131}. She was born about 17521 {p131},97 {p263}, died 23 Jun 1841, aged 89y (87 per Ward) at Barre (under the name Rice), listed as Abigail on her gravestone, but as Catherine in the town death register1 {p131},97 {p263}. She made a will 10 Feb 1825, mentioning Mary Bullard, Sarah Bullard, Rebecca Boyden, Silas Barber, Lydia Dodge, John Barber, Ebenezer Barber, Francis and Nancy Rice. Francis Rice, Executor1 {p131}.

Abigail RICE [QQ3147, w827] (Absalom4, Jonas3, Thomas2, Edmund1) , born 7 Oct 1746 at Worcester, MA68,1 {p72}, daughter of Absalom RICE and Elizabeth FLAGG.

She married Abraham GALE 28 Nov 1769 at Worcester, listed as Abraham of Shrewsbury1 {72, 133},45 {p29},68 {p410}. He was born in 17341 {p133}, son of Abraham GALE and Esther CUNNINGHAM. For lack of any better documention, we follw Ward's assigned birth date of 1734 and parents Abraham and Esther Gale. This makes him a first cousin of the Josiah Gale who married Abigail Rice's sister Elizabeth. On the other hand, another possible candidate is the Abraham Gale born in Watertown to Samuel and Rebecca. Also, Suplement 1 assigned a birth date of 29 July 1745 which would make Abraham the brother of the same Josiah Gale.1 {p133},45 {p29} He was a sergeant in Capt. Moore's company of militia at the time of the Lexington alarm and served in various regiments thereafter for about five years. Later on, he took part in Shays' Rebellion and led a company from Princeton to Worcester in 1786 to shut down the court there. After the Rebellion was suppressed, he moved to New Hampshire.183 {2:108} Abraham GALE and Abigail RICE resided about 1775 at Princeton, MA, as the births of their younger children are recorded there1 {p133},105 {27, 28}.

Persis 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.



Persis RICE [QQ3157, w830] (Adonijah4, Jonas3, Thomas2, Edmund1) , born 3 Apr 1740 at Worcester, MA68,1 {p73},45 {p12}, daughter of Adonijah RICE and Persis GATES. The Supplement ascribes a death in 1777 to this Persis Rice, but the identification is surely wrong. The Athol vital records do indeed show the death of a Persis Rice on that date, but the Persis in question was the daughter of Adonijah and Tamar Rice and was baptized at Brookfield in 1768. Thus, she may indeed have been a second daughter Persis of the same Adonijah and a second wife, or she may have been the daughter of Adonijah (WRN 507), who Ward says died young (q.v.). In either case, the supposed marriage of this Persis (WRN 830) to Hezekiah Stowell is in doubt, as the vital records actually show the bride in question to be Hepzibah Rice, not Persis. Further research is needed to establish the identities.89,45 {p12} Meanwhile, the Petersham vital records show the birth of a daughter Persis to a Hezekiah and Persis Stowell in 1766, but no other entries for any of those three.123

She married Hezekiah STOWELL 24 Nov 1758 at Worcester, transcribed as Hezekiah Howell and Hepzibah Rice in the vital records68,1 {p73},45 {p12}. He was born 25 Dec 1732 at Watertown, MA34 {2:101},454, died in 1790454.

    Children of Persis RICE and Hezekiah STOWELL:

i
Levi STOWELL [QQ323903], born 8 Jan 1759 at Worcester, MA68.
ii
Asa STOWELL [QQ5500], born 21 Oct 1760 at Worcester, listed as son of Cornelius and Persis and in 1750, rather than 1760. The interpretation of this entry is therefore doubtful68,454. He died 3 Nov 1826454.

He married Hannah BIXBY. She was born 13 Dec 1762454, died 18 Sep 1850454.
