     Deborah Rice was born on 22 May 1704 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,4,3 She was the daughter of Capt. Peter Rice and Rebecca Howe. Deborah Rice married James Brown on 26 January 1724/25 at Marlborough, MA.2,3 Deborah Rice died before 1746; as she was not mentioned in her father's will.1
     We have two records for two Deborah Rices both married a James Brown on 26 January 1725. Ward has one set of parents and Sup 1 has another set for Deborah. It is quite certain that the James Brown is the same person and that the ancestors of one Deborah Rice are in error. Unfortunately the Marlborough marriage record does not list Deborah's parents. And she died before either presumed father died so a will would be no help.

     Deborah Rice was born on 14 November 1697 at Marlborough, MA.1,3,2,4 She was the daughter of Daniel Rice and Bethia Ward. Deborah Rice married James Brown on 26 January 1724/25 at Marlborough, MA.1,3,2,5 Deborah Rice died on 1 December 1725 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,6
     There is a conflict in the marriage of Deborah Rice and James Brown. Ward lists Deborah's parents as Daniel Rice and Bethia Ward. Supplement 1 lists them as Peter Rice and Rebecca How. Since there is only one marriage record for one James Brown, only one of these descriptions can be correct. Regrettably, the Marlborough vital records do not include a death or marriage record for the second Deborah Rice. Further, Deborah (Rice) Brown died before either presumed father died, and so a will would be no help.

     Dorcas Rice was born on 29 June 1664 at Sudbury, MA, (January per Ward).4,2,5 She was the daughter of Deacon Edward Rice and Agnes Bent. Dorcas Rice married Thomas Forbush, son of Daniel Forbush and Rebecca Perriman.1,2 Dorcas Rice died on 24 March 1753 at Westborough, MA; widow of Thomas.6
     There have been suggestions that Dorcas Rice first married a John Weldon or Walderne (see, for example, the LDS Ancestral File). Indeed, the marriage of a Dorcas Rice and John Walderne appears in the published vital records of Wenham, MA on 22 Sep 1680 (transcribed from the Essex County court records). The marriage is also entered in the Salem vital records, but with a date of 25 Sep 1679. Further, that marriage resulted in at least two children, sons Edward and Ebenezer, recorded at Wenham in 1686 and 1696, respectively. However, there is no evidence that the Wenham Dorcas is the same Dorcas shown here. Indeed, since Ebenezer Walderne was born at Wenham after our Dorcas had begun raising a family in Marlborough, we must conclude that they are different.7,8 She was dismissed from the Marlborough Church and admitted to the Westborough Church on 25 July 1725.9

     Ebenezer Rice was born on 6 November 1743 at Westborough, MA.4,1,2,3 He was the son of Ebenezer Rice and Anna Rice. Ebenezer Rice married Tabitha Balcom, daughter of Joseph Balcom and Deborah Boice, before 1770. Your author has searched in vain for the marriage of Ebenezer Rice and Tabitha Balcom in Sudbury, MA and surrounding communities and at Annapolis, NS. The Rice Genealogical Register and McCormick 1975 list their marriage year as 1778 which your author considers very unlikely.
The 1770 census for Annapolis lists Ebenezer Jnr (III) Rice with three in his household, two American and one Acadian. We can assume that he and Tabitha Balcom had been married for at least one year and had one child.
Note that Ebenezer Jnr (III) was not listed in the 1768 census but was a signer of the 30 October 1765 petition for the Grant of Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis (see Savary, p 105). It is possible that he returned to Massachusetts for a time between 1765 and 1770 and might even have married Tabitha in Massachusetts, so your author doesn't list Nova Scotia as their place of marriage.5,3,2 Ebenezer Rice died in 1795.6
     He resided after 1760 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS.7,8 He left a will on 2 September 1795 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, listing his wife Tabitha and children Jonas, Levy(sic), Ann, and Sarah. This is our first indication that he had a daughter Sarah.6

     Ebenezer Rice was born on 12 March 1756 at Shrewsbury, MA.4,1,5,3 He was the son of Elijah Rice and Huldah Keyes. Ebenezer Rice married Sarah Tayntor, daughter of Deacon Benjamin Tayntor and Sarah Brigham, on 20 September 1780 at Princeton, MA.6,1,5,3 Ebenezer Rice married Ruth Eveleth, daughter of Joseph Eveleth and Patience Hunt, on 18 December 1791 at Hubbardston, MA; Ward describes Ruth Eveleth "of Stow". The published, condensed Hubbardston marriage record does not include Ruth's place of residence, and so the original must either state directly or imply she was of Hubbardston at that time.1,7,8 Ebenezer Rice died in June 1831 at Maury County, TN; the Rice Genealogical register indicates the date of death as October 1831 and the location as Hubbardston, in error.5,9 He was buried at Fountain Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Culleoka, Maury Co, TN, born 11 March 1756 (sic), died June 1831.10
     He began military service on 23 July 1777; although some histories have ascribed Ebenezer Rice's Revolutionary War service to Vermont, that service belongs to another Ebenezer/Eber Rice. The Daughters of the American Revolution have accepted the record of Ebenezer Rice from Massachusetts that reads: "Rice, Ebenezer. Private, Capt. John Crawford's co., Col. James Convers's regt; enlisted July 23, 1777; discharged July 26, 1777; service, 4 days, at Rhode Island on an alarm; roll sworn to in Worcester Co; also, same co. and regt; enlisted Aug. 20, 1777; discharged Aug. 23, 1777; service, 5 days, including 2 days (40 miles) travel home; company marched on the alarm at Bennington of Aug. 20, 1777; roll sworn to in Worcester Co.11,10 He and Sarah Tayntor resided circa 1781 at Hubbardston, MA.1 Ebenezer Rice and Rolland Rice resided in 1802 at Maury County, TN, as Ebenezer and Roland Rice were signatories on a petition to the Tennessee General Assembly to establish a new county (now Maury County).10 Ebenezer Rice left a will on 21 January 1831 at Maury County, TN, which was recorded 6 October 1831. The will mentions wife Henrietta, son Ebenezer, daughter Sally Mayson(sic), son Abel, daughter Patsy Moore, son Joel, Sally Rice daughter of deceased son Rowan when she arrived to the age of eighteen, and Ebenezer Rice son of deceased son Rowan between age 19 and 21.

One possible site of the grave is marked by a monument designed by Arthur Wallace Rice of Boston, MA. It was dedicated by the Edmund Rice Association on 29 August 1914. A boulder with a bronze tablet was also erected by the Association and it marks Edmund's homestead on the Old Connecticut Path in Wayland.7,2
     He and Thomasine Frost resided in 1627 at Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire, England.8
In 1638 Edmund Rice acquired 4 acres in then Sudbury (now Wayland) and laid out in the fall of that year. He was one of the first to build in the area. According to Massachusetts Colonial Records, Volume 1, page 271, on 4 September 1639 Edmund Rice was one of the committee appointed by the Massachusetts General Court to lay out the land in Sudbury.
Edmund Rice's house was situated on the "Old North Street", near Mill brook. He received his proportion of "Meadowlands", which were divided "to the present inhabitants" under dates of 4 September 1639, 20 April, and 18 November 164-, his share being 42 1/2 acres. He shared in all the division of Uplands and Commons - the total number of acres which fell to his lot, as an original inhabitant, was 247.9,10

Deacon Edmund Rice was a Selectman in 1639, 1643, 1644 and subsequent years; a Deacon of the church in 1648, and, in 1656, one of the petitioners for a new plantation that became known as Marlborough at Sudbury, MA.11,12 He was a deputy to the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (the Massachusetts legislature) representing the Town of Sudbury, serving in 1640, 1652, 1653, and 1654.13 He was designated a Freeman on 13 May 1640 at Massachusetts.14,15 He was appointed by the General Court to decide small cases in the town of Sudbury in the years 1641, 1646, and 1648.16 He resided after 1656 at Marlborough, MA, lived on "The Great Road" on the northerly side of the pond (Cochituate Pond), not far from Williams Tavern. The pond is also spelled Wachittuate, Caochituet, Chochichawicke, Coijchawicke, Catchchauitt, Charchittawick, Katchetuit, Cochichawauke, or Cochichowicke.17
     Twice in the 20th century nationally recognized research genealogists have attempted to determine the parents and ancestors of Edmund Rice. Mary Lovering Holman described the negative result of her search for records in the parishes near Stanstead and Sudbury, Suffolk County, England in "English Notes on Edmund Rice", The American Genealogist, Volume 10 (1933/34), pp. 133 - 137. Mrs Holman is considered by many to be one of the best research genealogists in the 20th century. In 1997 the Edmund Rice (1638) Association commissioned Dr. Joanna Martin, a nationally recognized research genealogist who lives in Hitcham, Suffolk, England, only a few miles from Stanstead and Sudbury, to search again for records of Edmund Rice's parents. Dr. Martin reported in 1999 that she found no record that identified Edmund's parents or ancestral line.
     Several authors of published works and computer data sets have claimed names for Edmund Rice's parents. Regrettably they have not given sources that would assist in definitive genealogical research. For example, the Ancestral File and International Genealogical Index, two popular computer data sets widely distributed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, offer parent candidates that include: Henry Rice and Margaret Baker, Henry Rice and Elizabeth Frost, Thomas Rice and Catherine Howard, and Thomas Rice and Elizabeth Frost.
     From Mrs. Holman's paper we have an excellent record of one Henry Rice's marriage to Elizabeth Frost in November 1605 at Stanstead. Mrs. Holman also documents the baptism of Edmund's first child on 23 August 1619 at Stanstead. If this is the Henry Rice and Elizabeth Frost to which the LDS records refer, the LDS records must be erroneous. Our researchers have not been able to find records that support any Henry Rice and Elizabeth Frost, Henry Rice and Margaret Baker, Thomas Rice and Catherine Howard, or Thomas Rice and Elizabeth Frost as parents of Edmund Rice.
     A scholarly investigation by Donald Lines Jacobus, considered by many as the dean of modern American genealogy, appeared in The American Genealogist, volume 11, (1936), pp. 14-21 and was reprinted in the fall of 1968 and the winter of 1998 issues of Newsletter of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association. Jacobus traced many of the false accounts to the book by Dr. Charles Elmer Rice entitled "By the Name of Rice", privately published by Dr. Rice at Alliance, Ohio in 1911.
     Sudbury, England includes three parishes, two of which do not have complete records for the years near 1594, which is Edmund's most likely birth year. Edmund Rice deposed in a court document on 3 April 1656 that he was about 62 years old. Thus, if he were born in Sudbury his records have been lost and we may never know his origin.
     In his address to the 1999 annual meeting of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association, Gary Boyd Roberts, Senior Researcher, New England Historic Genealogy Society, reviewed all of the genealogical sleuthing on Edmund's parentage. Mr. Roberts is well known for his research on royal lineage. He concluded that there was no evidence whatsoever that supports the published accounts of Edmund Rice's parents and no evidence that Edmund Rice was from a royal lineage.
     The Edmund Rice (1638) Association is very interested in proving the ancestry of Edmund Rice. The association encourages anyone who can identify a primary source that names Edmund and his parents to identify that source. Records of a baptism, estate probate, or land transaction naming Edmund and his parents are the most likely records to contain that proof. Until someone can cite such a record, the association must state emphatically that Edmund Rice's parents and ancestry are not known and that Edmund Rice's descendants can not claim royal ancestry.18,19,20

Deacon Edward Rice1,2

     Deacon Edward Rice was born circa 1622, (1619 per Ward).3 He was the son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost. Deacon Edward Rice was christened on 27 October 1622 at Stanstead, co Suffolk, England; 26th per TAG, 20th per Rice Gen'l Register, under the name Rise. The 1622 baptism record gives the child's name as Edmund, not Edward. Nonetheless, your authors are convinced that Edward was the child baptized (and of course born) that year, and that he exaggerated his age in later life.2,4,5 He married Agnes Bent, daughter of John Bent and Martha (?), circa 1647.3,2,6 Deacon Edward Rice died on 15 August 1712 at Marlborough, MA; at about age 93.3,7
     He received one lot in the Sudbury Two-Mile Grant in 1655.8 He resided in 1664 at Marlborough, MA, where he was a Deacon of the church.9 He declared age 47 in a paper filed in court on 2 October 1666 at Middlesex County Court, Cambridge, MA.10 He was assessed 8s 7d in the 1688 Marlborough tax roll.11 On 1 April 1686 at Sudbury, MA, Edward and Agnes Rice gave to their son Edmund Rice of Sudbury, half of the farm lying within the bounds of Sudbury, "near the spring". (Edward had purchased some of this land from his father Edmund and some of the land from his brother Benjamin. John Rice of Sudbury, a brother of Edmund, had the choice half.) Deed recorded 16 August 1734.3,12 He was elected deacon in 1687.13 In the year 1692 he was questioned in court - aged 70y.14 A 1712 obituary in the Boston News Letter gave the death year as 1711 and said he had been born in Berkhamstead in 1618. It also said he had 142 descendants at that time, of which 119 were living. It further said that Edward's brother Henry, who had died in Framingham in 1711, had a similarly large number of descendants.15

     Elisha Rice was born on 4 April 1756 at Westborough, MA, listed as Elijah, apparently in error.2,3 He was the son of Joseph Rice and Eunice Harrington.3 Marriage banns for Elisha Rice and Ruth Rice were published on 9 February 1782 at Westborough, MA; listed as Ruth of Northborough.2 Elisha Rice married Ruth Rice, daughter of Solomon Rice and Anna Rice, on 4 April 1782 at Northborough, MA; listed as Elisha of Westborough.4,1 Elisha Rice married Temperance Wyatt on 4 January 1785 at Westborough, MA; both of Westborough.2,5 Elisha Rice died in 1811; without issue.5
     Ward favors the identification of this Ruth Rice as WRN 1445, but admits some uncertainty.5 He was in the military circa 1776 serving in the Revolution and engaged in several sanguinary battles; in one of which he was wounded in the head, and from his shattered skull thirteen pieces of bone were extracted that are yet preserved as mementoes of his daring courage and of his suffering, and of the righteous cause in which he perilled his life. His revolutionary services, as summed up on the Military Roles, were "42 months, 5 days, in the Light Infantry." There is no monument at Westborough to mark the resting place of this brave man and patriot soldier; his services have been forgotten, the fruits of them are seen and enjoyed. He sleeps, unconscious of neglect and of the harvest reaped from labor in part by him bestowed; of the extent of his country, now teeming with eightfold millions, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, jealous of its rights, and, as in his day, vindicating them with success [WARD p. 232].5 He left a will on 7 January 1807, proved 2 July 1811.5

     Ephraim Rice was born on 14 March 1729 at Westborough, MA.4,1,2,3 He was the son of Perez Rice and Lydia (?). Ephraim Rice died before 1804; presumably, since his son Perez's will mentions his mother but not his father.2,5
     Note that no marriage or births of children for Ephraim are listed in the vital records of Hardwick or Sutton (or any other Massachusetts town, for that matter). Therefore, we do not show a marriage for Ephraim or a mother for his children. No marriage record has been found. He was in the military between 20 September 1756 and 5 December 1756 serving in the French and Indian War. With his cousin Oliver (son of Charles, his father's brother), he was a member of Capt. Mandell's company which marched from Hardwick, MA to Lake Champlain, probably crossing the Green Mountains in Vermont.2,6 Ephraim Rice was in a land transaction on 28 February 1761 at Hardwick, MA, selling 100 acres of land to Andrew Haskell. He had previously purchased the land from Aaron Thomas.6 He resided in 1765 at Hardwick, MA, listed as a grantee of Town of Somerset, VT (West Dover), but his sons cleared and settled the homestead.2 He resided He was among the original 62 proprietors of Somerset, VT, however, he never came to claim his land. Instead he traveled south, taking a heard of horses to South Carolina, and was never heard of again. It was assumed that he had been murdered during that trip. Ephraim's sons, Daniel, Simeon, and Perez went to Somerset, VT, to claim Ephraim's lands there. His son, John, and his family, also moved there.7,2

     Esther Rice was born on 29 December 1755 at Worcester (Auburn), MA.4,5,2,3 She was the daughter of Comfort Rice and Martha Morris.5 Esther Rice married Daniel Gale, son of Daniel Gale and Sarah (?); Daniel of Petersham (not found in the published records).5,2,3 Esther Rice died on 13 August 1848 at Petersham, MA; aged 92y 5m 27d (sic)
under the name Gale.6,1,2
     Congress passed a bill in 1838 to provide pensions to soldiers who served in the American Revolution. Esther Rice Gale, who was a widow by that time, applied to the government for her husband's pension. Following is an exact transcript of this application: "Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Worcester County. On this 19th day of October, 1838, personally appeared before Ira Barton, Esq. Judge of the Court of Probate in the County of Worcester, Esther Gale, a resident in Petersham in said county of Worcester, aged 82 years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the act of congress passed July 7, 1838 entitled 'an act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows.'
"That she is the widow of Daniel Gale, who was a private in the Massachusetts state troops in the war of the Revolution; that the said Daniel Gale performed services as aforesaid in three separate campaigns; in the first, he was in Capt Jonas Hubbard's company, in Col. Timothy Bigelow's regiment, but the names of his officers in the other two she does not recollect; nor does she recollect the length of time he was in the service. She further declares that the said Daniel Gale was placed upon the pension list roll of the Massachusetts agency under the Act of Congress of June 7, 1832 at the rate of $53.33 by the year for services performed by him as a soldier in the war of the Revolution. She refers to the declaration of the said Daniel Gale and the documentary evidence therewith furnished, now in the war office to prove his services.
"She further declares that she was married to the said Daniel Gale on the 23rd day of October in the year 1778; that her husband, the aforesaid Daniel Gale died on the 12th day of July in the year 1834; that she was not married to him prior to his leaving the service but the marriage took place previous to the first day of January 1794.
                         /s/ Esther X Gale
"Sworn to and subscribed on the day and year above written before: Ira Barton, Judge of the Court of Probate in the County of Worcester."

The following is an exact transcript presented to Jared Weed, Justice of the Peace, by Esther Rice Gale's sister, Mary Rice Bancroft.
"I, Mary Bancroft, of Auburn in the county of Worcester, and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, aged 77 years, testify and say that I am the sister of Esther Gale of Petersham in this county; that her maiden name was Esther Rice; that I was present at her marriage with Daniel Gale; that they were married by William Young, Esq., a justice of the peace at my father's house in that part of the town of Worcester, which was afterwards Ward and now Auburn; that the marriage took place in the autumn of 1778 but the day and month I do not recollect. I recollect that it was in the autumn of that year because after their marriage they resided at my father's till the winter of 1780, the year of the great snow when they removed to Warwick. I know it was in the winter or spring of that year because they were delayed some time by reason of the roads being blocked up by snow and I know it was less than two years after the marriage because my sister then had but two children who were twins."
                         /s/ Mary Bancroft

"Worcester, September 5, 1838, when personally appeared before me Mary Bancroft and made oath to the truth of the above affidavit by her subscribed and I certify that the said Mary Bancroft is a person of undoubted truth and veracity. /s/ Jared Weed, Justice of the Peace."7

     Gershom Rice was born on 9 May 1667 at Marlborough, MA.4,2,5 He was the son of Thomas Rice and Mary King.6 Gershom Rice married Elizabeth Balcom, daughter of Henry Balcom and Elizabeth Haynes.7,3,2 Gershom Rice died on 19 December 1768 at Worcester, MA; aged 101y. According to Ward, a tribute to Gershom Rice appeared in the Boston Gazette. In part it reads:
"Worcester, 19 December 1768. This day died here Mr. Gershom Rice, who completed the age of 101 years some time last May, besides retained his reason and understanding in a very good degree to the last.
"He enjoyed a long and almost uninterrupted state of bodily health; was able, till very lately, to travel on foot a mile or two a day among his neighbors; eat his food with a good appetite and sleep quietly at night without any attendance.
"He was naturally of a very pleasant disposition, very courteous in his behavior towards all, and withal grave and serious. Of late, the decay of Nature came on him fast; and he went calmly and quietly at last, expressing his hope and trust in his Redeemer for admission to a better world."
He was one of the "fathers of the town", and occupied many situations of public trust and confidence. The first place of worship in Worcester was at his house.8,9,10,11 He was buried at Plot 251, Old Common Cemetery, Worcester, MA.11
     He resided circa 1696 at Groton, CT.12
According to the Abstracts of Early Worcester Land Titles (copied from Middlesex County records): "Gershom Rice of Groton, Conn. and his wife, Elizabeth, sold to her brothers, John and Joseph Balcom, of Sudbury, November 12, 1709, for forty and Two pounds Some part in money the other part in moveables It being part of the Portion of my wife Elisabeth of her father Henry Balcoms Estate formerly of Charlestown in the County of Middlesex..."13
According to the Abstracts of Land Records for New London and Groton, CT:
On 28 April 1704 James Morgan and Nehemiah Smith, on behalf of the town, sell to Gershom Rice ten acres of meetinghouse finishing land .... joining westerly to his own land, which was laid out to Daniel Lane. The deed was recorded 23 July 1708.
On 8 May 1708 Nehemiah Smith, Esq, of Groton to Gershom Rice of Groton and Jonas Rice of Sudbury, MA, 2 parcels: 200 acres in Groton, formerly New London... 50 acres in Groton (partially) ... deed recorded 16 May 1709, John Avery, John Seabury, Andrew Kinnicum, witnesses.
On 19 May 1709 Jonas and Gershom Rice make a division of land ... deed recorded 20 May 1709, Andrew Kinnicum, Ephraim Rogers, Joseph Dean, witnesses.
On 27 Feb 1709/10 Gershom Rice, husbandman, to Jonathan Smith, 40 acres ... consideration £19 ... witnesses Nehemiah Smith, Joseph Woodmansee, Lydia Smith, witnesses.
On 10 Feb 1709/10 Gershom Rice of Groton for £40 in money at eight shillings per ounce ... to Nathaniel Brown ... deed recorded 8 March 1709/10, Aaron Stark, Abel Stark, witnesses.
On 22 Jan 1713/14 Gershom Rice of Groton, yeoman, to Nathaniel Brown ... recorded 22 Jan 1713/14, Nehemiah Smith, Lydia Smith, Mary Cleveland (her mark), witnesses.
On 29 April 1714 Gershom Rice to Aaron Stark ... recorded 29 April 1714 (Gershom Rice personally appeared), Edward Yeomans, Nehmiah Smith, witnesses.
On 20 April 1714 Gershom Rice of Groton, yeoman, to Jonathan Smith, cordwinder ... recorded 20 Apr 1714, Lydia Smith, Dority Smith, Elizabeth Rice, witnesses.
(undated) Gershom Rice of Groton to Nehemiah Smith, land at Nowayanck Neck ... recorded 8 Feb 1714, Lydia Smith, Elizabeth Hayns, witnesses.14
A letter dated 1 April 1713 and addressed to Elizabeth Rice at Groton, CT: from "Elizabeth Balcom to her loving daughter, Elizabeth Rice, living in Groton." Letter also referenced grandchildren Gershom, Jr, Elizabeth, Matthias.12
Ward cites a petition dated 13 October 1713 signed by Gershom and Jonas "of Marlboro" as evidence that Gershom had moved back to Marlborough by the fall of 1713. (The petition was presented to the General Court expressing desire to enter upon a new settlement of Worcester.) We have found no other evidence that Gershom had returned to Marlborough in 1713. Rather, evidence suggests that Gershom may have still been living at Groton.15
From the Abstracts of Early Worcester Land Titles: " William Payne, of Boston, Blacksmith, sold to Gershom Rice of Groton in the County of New London and Colony of Connecticut, yeoman, May 26, 1712 for Fifty pounds of good Silver current money, 'All the Messuage or Tenement with all the land whereon ye Same Doth Stand, and is thereunto belonging and appertaining Situate Standing and being in Worcester in the County of Middlesex in New England Containing Fifty acres more or less ..... '
"Deed signed by William Payne, and Elisabeth Payne, his wife, with her mark, in the presence of Jonas Rice and Edward Weaver, Sen., and recorded at Charlestown Oct 19, 1713, Book 16, p. 383."16 On 21 August 1721 Gershom Rice conveyed 103 acres of land in
Worcester to John Duncan.8
On 21 August 1721 Gershom Rice conveyed 103 acres of land in Worcester to his daughter Sarah and her husband Daniel.8

     Hannah Rice was born on 14 December 1714 at Sudbury, MA, (not found in the published records).1 She was the daughter of Deacon Jonathan Rice and Anne Darby. Hannah Rice married (?) Brintnal.1
     Your authors note that this person may not have existed. There is no record of her birth or marriage and no record of any children born in Sudbury to a Brintnal family whose mother was named Hannah. The birth date given by Ward looks suspiciously like a miscopied version of the birth date of the 'next' sibling Ann. Indeed, the only evidence for her is a reference in Jonathan Rice's will to a 'daughter Hannah Brintnal.' It is possible that the reference was meant for granddaughter Hannah instead.

     Hannah Rice was born on 15 February 1710/11 at Sudbury, MA.4,1,2,3 She was the daughter of Phineas Rice and Elizabeth Willard. Hannah Rice was baptized on 1 July 1711 at First Parish Church, Sudbury, MA.5
     Although the Sudbury vital records show only one marriage of a Hannah Rice to a John Barber, Supplement 1 to The Rice Family, ascribes that marriage to two different Hannahs of about the same age, daughters of Ephraim and Phineas, respectively. Ward gives the nod to Phineas' daughter. However, Ephraim Rice remained at Sudbury while Phineas Rice moved to Stow when both Hannahs were still teenagers. Compelling evidence that Hannah was the daughter of Ephraim is supplied by a letter written by John Barber on 11 July 1755, while at a military camp, to his wife Hannah in Sudbury (see NEHGR 27:286). In the letter, he reports that Isaac Rice is in the same camp with him and is well. Significantly, the end of the letter indicates it was actually sent (for transmittal to Barber's wife) to Gershom Rice, in Sudbury, New-England. Gershom and Isaac Rice, sons of Ephraim, would have been Hannah's brothers. Therefore, your authors must conclude that the Hannah Rice who married John Barber was Hannah (WRN 238), daughter of Ephraim Rice.6

The agreement was signed by Ephraim Barber on the one hand and by Nathan, Oliver and Silas Barber, Henry Locar with his wife Hannah, Moses Locar, Benjamin Mills with his wife Sarah, and Jeremiah Smith with his wife Mary.12

     Henry Rice was born on 23 June 1794 at Marlborough, MA.1,4,5 He was the son of Gershom Rice and Susannah Howe.1 Marriage banns for Henry Rice and Mary Sherbourne were published on 4 May 1820 at Littleton, MA.6 Henry Rice married Mary Sherbourne, daughter of Samuel Sherbourne and Sarah Read, on 20 May 1820 at Littleton, MA; (March per Rice Gen'l Register) listed as Henry of Marlborough and Mary of Littleton.6,2,3 Henry Rice died in December 1858.5 He was buried at Arborvitae (Triangle) Cemetery, Lincoln, MA, Henry Rice, June 1794 - Dec 1858, his wife Mary Sherburne, Aug 1797 - Feb 1887.7,5
     The Rice Genealogical Register and Ward's The Rice Family have both confused this Henry Rice with other Henry Rices by mismatching the births and marriages. The correct identification for this Henry Rice is clear from the gravestone inscriptions at the Arborvitae (Triangle) Cemetery in Lincoln, MA. Ward was wrong is asserting that this was the Henry of Billerica who married Mary White Lee, and the Rice Genealogical Register was wrong in asserting that the husband of Mery Sherburne was Henry, WRN 2553a, son of Luke.5 He and Mary Sherbourne appeared on the census of 1850 at Lincoln, MA; Henry declared age 55, Mary declared age 53.8

     The battle of Bunker Hill was fought only a few days previous to the event that gave rise to the following letter:
The blow had been struck; thence forward, any and every incident, through which patriotism could manifest itself, was made available to swell the tide of popular resistance to British aggression.
Marlboro, July 7, 1775
The wife of Jabez Rice, Jr was delivered of two children last week -- they were baptized the next Sabbath John Hancock and Dorothy Quincy! 1775! -- there is something spirit-stirring, something electrifying in that expression -- when we hear it mentioned, no matter on what account, an unfading recollection of historical events, inseparable from it, crowds itself upon our willing minds, and is cherished with deep gratitude for the memory of those who aided in achieving our Independence, and for the consequent harvest of blessings, that are enjoyed in our land from the seed sown in blood, 1775.8
