     Rice Family - S2/P2 incorrectly describes John and Elizabeth Boyden's children as being born at Auburn, New York. They were probably born in an area that is now Auburn, Massachusetts. The births through 1750, as well as the baptisms thereafter, appear in the published Worcester vital records. Note that the town of Auburn was not set off from Worcester until 1778 and was called Ward until 1837.

     Ward includes a daughter of Ephraim and Thankful Rice with a death record of 5 November 1761. It is clear from the Brookfield vital records that this person is Thankful Walker Rice the wife of Ephraim and not Ephraim's daughter. This is compelling evidence that a daughter Thankful, born c 1760, did not exist. He left a will on 13 December 1796, proved 23 October 1810. The will mentions wife Eunice; sons Levi and Matthias; and daughters Thankful Smith and Zerviah Boyden.6

     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

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

     Hannah Rice was born on 31 July 1713 at Sudbury, MA.4,5,6 She was the daughter of Ephraim Rice and Hannah Livermore. Hannah Rice was baptized on 3 November 1713 at First Parish Church, Sudbury, MA.7 She married John Barber, son of Deacon George Barbour and Anna Taylor, on 20 October 1735 at Sudbury, MA; (23 October per county records) listed as John of Medfield.1,2,3,8 Hannah Rice married Deacon Adams Stone, son of Matthew Stone and Rachel Pond, on 26 January 1762 at Sudbury, MA.6,9 Hannah Rice married 3rd Israel Stevens before 1 September 1770 Israel of Grafton.10,2,9 Hannah Rice died before 20 February 1784.9
     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.11 She left a will on 21 March 1783 at Sudbury, MA, mentioning her son John Barber's widow Abigail, children of her deceased daughter Abigail Loker, her daughter Hannah Loker, and her sons Samuel, Oliver, Nathan, Ephraim, and Silas Barber.12 Her heirs made an agreement in 1786 to dispose of the property she had left them (a house and four acres in Sudbury). 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

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

     James Rice was born on 13 July 1726 at Framingham, MA.3,2,4 He was the son of Ezekiel Rice and Hannah Whitney. James Rice and Mary Stearns published their marriage intention on 18 January 1766 at Weston, MA; entered as "James Rice of Sudbury."5 James Rice married Mary Stearns on 13 February 1766 at Weston, MA; Jonas/Jones of Sudbury and Mary of Weston.3,6,7,8
     Your authors note that Ward attributes the same marriage event in Weston to two different people, James (WRN 432) and Jonas (WRN 746). Worse, Jonas may have been confused with yet another Jonas (WRN 979). Part of the confusion stems from the fact that the marriage intention filed at Weston a few weeks before the marriage shows the groom's name as "James Rice of Sudbury", while the marriage record shows him as "Jones Rice of Sudbury". Several decades later, when the Weston town clerk forwarded a copy of the marriage record to the clerks of Sudbury and East Sudbury (now Wayland), the name was rendered as "Jonas", but that is only secondary evidence. However, since no children are recorded for JAMES and Mary Rice, either in Sudbury or Framingham, while JONAS and Mary Rice of Sudbury had a series of children after this marriage, we believe it more likely that Jonas was the groom. Further research may establish whether or not James had settled in Sudbury by 1766. If he did not (and there is no known indication that he ever did), then the case for Jonas as groom becomes overwhelming.1,9,10,8

     John Rice was born on 23 April 1704 at Sudbury, MA.3,4,5 He was the son of Ephraim Rice and Hannah Livermore. John Rice was baptized on 6 April 1707 at First Parish Church, Sudbury, MA.6 He married Sarah Dunton on 11 November 1731 at Weston, MA; John Jr and Sarah, both of Sudbury. Your authors note that this same marriage, with the same bride, is also attributed by Ward to another John Rice (WRN 155), evidently in error.1,4,7,8,9 John Rice married Anna Sanderson, daughter of William Sanderson and Ann (?), on 4 November 1741 at Sudbury, MA.10,11,12 John Rice married Thankful (?) circa 1744.11 John Rice died in 1771 at Sudbury, MA; (not found in the published records.)11

     John Rice was born on 29 September 1675 at Sudbury, MA.3,4 He was the son of John Rice and Tabitha Stone. John Rice married Elizabeth Clapp, daughter of Ezra Clapp and Abigail Pond, on 13 March 1700 at Sudbury, MA; (May per Ward) listed as Elizabeth of Milton.5,2,6 John Rice married Sarah Frost, daughter of Thomas Frost and Mary Goodridge, circa 1706 at Sudbury, MA; (not found in the published records.)7 John Rice died on 28 July 1733 at Sudbury, MA.7,8
     Note that Ward mistakenly attributes the 1731 marriage of Sarah Dunton both to this John Rice and to another (WFN 123). Since the Sudbury vital records show a child was born to John and Sarah Rice in 1736, after the death of this John, it seems clear that the other attribution is the correct one.9,10,11 He and Elizabeth Clapp resided at Sudbury, MA.7 John Rice represented the Town of Sudbury in the Massachusetts General Court (legislative assembly) at Boston, MA in 1715.7

Your authors note that John Rice and Ebenezer Rice's names do not appear on the manifest of the Charming Molly, a manifest that has survived.4 He was listed in the township records as surveyor of land in April 1792 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS.9 He left a will on 4 April 1811 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, which was recorded 24 May 1811 naming wife Mary and children Mary Potter the wife of Israel Potter, William, James, Silas, and Thomas.7
     The Rice Genealogical Register, 1970, says "John went to Nova Scotia on ship 'Charming Molly' with Beriah Rice and Ebenezer Rice Jr. He settled on the west side of Lequille River." In his 1897 History of the County of Annapolis, W A Calnek provides the passenger manifest the first trip of the Charming Molly. A Beriah Rice, together with Beriah's sons Stephen and Benjamin, are on that manifest; John Rice's name is not. This does not mean that John did not arrive in 1760, only that he was not on the first, recorded trip of the Charming Molly.
In his addendum to Calnek's history, Judge Savary provides a list of petitioners for a Grant of Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis, dated October 30th, 1765. John Rice's name was not on that list.
Back to Calnek's history, John Rice's name appears on the census of 1768 for Annapolis. He has three males and three females in his household, all American. He was enumerated in the 1770 census with six people in his household, two American and four Acadian. We may assume that the four Acadians were his children born in Nova Scotia.
According to Marion B McCormick, 1975: 'He was the ancestor of the greater part of the Annapolis Valley Rice family. He was a friend of Col. Hoar and settled on part of his farm, and during the Colonel's absences from home, he looked after the affairs of his friend. After the Colonel's death, John bought part of the estate, and later passed it on to his son James, who had been born on the farm, and who dies there in 1886.'

     John Rice was born circa 1766 at probably Rutland District (Barre), MA, as calculated from census and death records
(not found in the published records.) He was the son of Ralph Rice and Sarah Sawyer. John Rice married Abigail Broad on 2 July 1797 at Barre, MA.3,1,2 John Rice died on 13 October 1852 at Sterling, MA; (married, born in Barre, son of Ralph Rice) aged 87y, from dropsy.4,5
     The Rice Family Supplement has mistakenly compressed the two brothers John into one, combining the birth date of one with the life of the other. The first one died as an infant, and so the distinction is quite clear. He was not listed in the 1790 census in Barre. He appeared on the census of 1800 at Barre, MA; (household of 01010-20010.)6 He appeared on the census of 1810 at Barre, MA; (household of 10010-11010.)7 He appeared on the census of 1820 at Barre, MA; (household of 010001-10101-01.)8 He appeared on the census of 1830 at Barre, MA; (household of 000010001-10010001.)9 He appeared on the census of 1840 at Barre, MA; (household of 0000000001-000000001-0-0001.)10 He appeared on the census of 1850 at Sterling, MA; aged 83y.11 Ward has John Rice married to Abigail Broad. Indeed there is a marriage record for a John Rice and Abigail Broad on 27 May 1784 in Leominster. The marriage is recorded in both the Leominster and Barre vital records. However, this must be a different John Rice.

     John Rice was born circa 1762 at probably Hardwick, MA.1 He was the son of Ephraim Rice and Unknown (?) John Rice and Sarah Woods published their marriage intention on 12 November 1789 at Greenwich, MA; listed as John of Hardwick and Sally of Greenwich.3 John Rice and Sarah Woods published their marriage intention on 26 November 1789 at Hardwick, MA; listed as Sarah of Greenwich.4 John Rice married Sarah Woods on 10 December 1789 at Petersham, MA; listed as John of Hardwick and Polly of Greenwich.5,6,2 John Rice married Sally Cooper, daughter of Enoch Cooper and Sarah (?), on 7 April 1796 at Granby, CT.7 John Rice died on 24 June 1803.1,7,8,9
     There has been some question about the ancestry of John Rice. One John Rice of Hardwick married a Sarah Woods of Greenwich in 1789 (listed as Polly Woods in the marriage record at Petersham). The Hardwick vital records also show the marriage of a John Rice to a Betsey Ruggles in January 1809 and the birth of Betsey Ruggles Rice, daughter of John of Somerset, baptized in December 1809. Perez Rice's will in 1804 refers to "Brother John's widow", so the John Rice who married Betsey cannot be Ephraim's son and Perez's brother, since the marriage was in 1809, 5 years later than the will.
Mrs. Betsey Rice and Mrs. Peggy Rice are buried in the Mountain View Cemetery, close to Daniel and Perez, and Betsey is connected to Hardwick as well as Somerset, VT, so there is probably a close relationship here. The dates are such that the John who married Betsey could be the son of John and Sarah, but no clear evidence supports that theory either.
The family bible of Orrin A. and Melissa M. (Rice) Johnson lists John and Sally Rice as the parents of the children listed here (Clarissa, Anna, Susannah, Perez and Willard), but there are some contradictions too. It gives John's birth year as 1770 (which is possible because the 1762 listed is approximate), but also claims he died June 24 1803 (which meshes with Perez' brother John having died before the will in 1804), but claims he died at the age of 99 years and 11 months (the birth and death dates would have made him 33 years and 11 months)! It also lists an additional child, Shadrack, born in 1805. The choices of the names Perez and Susannah for John & Sally's children give credence to his being Ephraim's son, since these would be names of his siblings. The will of Perez Rice, 1804, mentions "Perez Rice son to brother John".
In a letter to Erwin's daughter Mickey Snow, dated August 11, 1995, David Kent Young questioned the ancestry of John Rice. Kent listed his John's wife as Sally Cooper - not Sarah or Polly Woods - and listed the children as Perez, Susannah and Willard, the same as listed in the above family bible. More recently in a note to Lynn McLaughlin on March 18, 2001 Kent said about John Rice: "He certainly was a son of Ephraim, since his son, Perez, was raised by his uncle Perez."
In Grains of Rice, the author Peggy Grosser lists her ancestor Willard Rice, who married Bathsheba Kelley, as being the son of John Rice and Sarah Woods, and John as being the son of Ephraim. She lists a Shadrack as being another child of Ephraim mentioned in a deed from 1773.10,4,2,11,9 He was believed to have been a teacher at Hardwick, MA.7 He and Sally Cooper resided at Hardwick, MA.7      John Rice's family was living at Somerset, VT, following his death; however, it is not known whether they had moved there prior to or after John's death. Although John could have moved his family to that area in late 1802 or early 1803, then passed away shortly after, it is also possible that his wife and children moved to Somerset after his death to be cared for by John's brother Perez and his wife Chloe.
     Sally did not remarry, but did have another child, Shadrach. Unfortunately Shadrach's father's name is unknown.7

     Jonas Rice was born on 20 May 1747 at Sudbury, MA.2,3 He was the son of William Rice and Mary Estabrook. Lucy Eaton married 2nd Jonas Rice on 5 June 1777 at Sudbury, MA.1,4 He died on 21 June 1778 at Sudbury, MA; from smallpox.5,3
     Your authors note that there was another Jonas Rice (WRN 746) in Sudbury, born just two months before this one, but the Sudbury vital records account for the death of only one of these two. Ward assigns the death record to this Jonas and offers the corroborating detail that this Jonas' widow remarried in 1779 (confirmed by the VRs). This seems preferable to the alternate account given by Supplement 2, which reassigns the death to the other Jonas without making any reference to this one. A third possibility is that one of the two died young (not clear which one), and the remaining Jonas married both Mary Stearns and Lucy (Eaton) Moore successively. This hypothesis is supported by the fact that the two marriage records and the various birth records make no distinction between a Jonas Sr and a Jonas Jr.
