     Betsy Beaman was born on 12 June 1767 at Shrewsbury, MA.5,6,2 She was the daughter of Major Ezra Beaman and Persis Keyes.6 Betsy Beaman and Luther Rice published their marriage intention on 29 July 1786 at Boylston, MA.7,2 Betsy Beaman married Luther Rice, son of Asa Rice and Elizabeth Livermore, in 1786; Betsy of Boylston.1,3 Betsy Beaman died on 16 April 1836; aged 69y, under the name Rice.8,6,2 The estate was probated on 7 June 1836.6 She was buried at Town Cemetery, West Boylston, MA.8
     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.6,4 She and Luther Rice resided at West Boylston, Oakham, and lastly at Worcester.6 Betsy Beaman left a will on 30 January 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 executors.6

     Hannah Bellows was born on 12 May 1695 at Marlborough, MA.4 She was the daughter of John Bellows and Hannah (?) Hannah Bellows married Thomas Forbush, son of Thomas Forbush and Dorcas Rice, on 6 January 1718/19 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,3,4,5
     Hannah Bellows was also known as Joanna Bellows. Although the Rice Genealogical Register describes her as Ann or Joanna, daughter of Benjamin, her marriage record at Marlborough clearly calls her Hannah, as do the birth records of all her children at Westborough. She was evidently the daughter of John and Hannah Bellows instead. The Marlborough vital records show no trace of any Benjamin Bellows in that period. She was also known as Ann Bellows.

Agnes Bent1,2

     Agnes Bent was born circa 1631.3,4 She was the daughter of John Bent and Martha (?) Agnes Bent married Deacon Edward Rice, son of Deacon Edmund Rice and Thomasine Frost, circa 1647.1,2,5 Agnes Bent died on 4 June 1713 at Marlborough, MA; aged 83y, registered as Ann Rice.1,3,6
     Barry's History of Framingham states Agnes Bent was without issue, which is clearly wrong. The will of John Bent of 1672 makes provision specifically for his daughter Agnes Rice and her son John Rice, which not only shows she was still living at that time, but also proves she was indeed the wife of Edward Rice (there being only one John Rice available as a grandson of John Bent). The confusion stems from the fact that the birth records of her children and the record of her death all show her name as Ann (a common variant of Agnes in her time.) She was also known as Ann. 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 1734.1,7

     Ann Bent was born on 8 April 1744 at Sudbury, MA.2,3 She was the daughter of Micah Bent and Grace Rice.4 Ann Bent married Daniel Felch, son of Ebenezer Felch and Mary Bacon, on 12 May 1763 at Sudbury, MA; listed as Daniel of Natick and Ann of Sudbury.2,5,1
     It is very likely that this is the Daniel Felch family enumerated in the 1768 census with three in his household, two male and one female, and in the 1770 census, five in his household all "American" born, at Annapolis, Nova Scotia, and Daniel Felch on the 1765 request for confirmation for township status and 1792 tax rolls for Annapolis. Daniel and Ann would be siblings of David Bent and Mary Felch who are also in this data set and are documented at Annapolis, Nova Scotia after 1763. Regrettably, the Felch family records for the late 18th century at Annapolis are very incomplete.

     There is some dispute over the identification of various Elizabeth Bents. The Bent genealogy asserts that this Elizabeth married Micah Rice (q.v.), while the Rice Genealogical Register has her married to David Stone and assigns a different Elizabeth as wife of Micah Rice (daughter of John Bent). Indeed, according to the Simon Stone Genealogy, both of these claims are wrong, and it was yet another Elizabeth Bent who married David Stone, namely, the daughter of Micah and Grace (Rice) Bent (q.v.) Pending resolution of this conflict, we are showing two Elizabeths married to two David Stones, but the details of their descendants are given only under the other Elizabeth.4,1,5

     Daniel Billings was born on 25 December 1753 at Concord, MA.2 He was the son of Daniel Billings and Elizabeth Farrar. Daniel Billings and Lydia Wheeler published their marriage intention on 28 December 1778 at Lincoln, MA.3 Daniel Billings married Lydia Wheeler, daughter of John Wheeler and Lydia Allen, on 11 January 1779 at Lincoln, MA; but the month is torn in the original church records. January is inferred as the expected month of marriage, given the recorded date of filing the intention. Note that the Wheeler genealogy ascribes this marriage incorrectly to Lydia's mother.4,5 Daniel Billings died on 28 February 1805 at Mason, NH.1 His estate was probated on 7 October 1805 at Hillsborough County, NH; per probate records #0512 in Nashua, Hillsborough County, NH, Lydia Billings survived her husband, Daniel, a cooper of Mason, NH. She was living in Temple, NH 7 Oct 1805. Daniel had had a long sickness before his death. Lydia was poverty stricken and requested help from the town.
     The published vital records of Clinton, Maine, show the same children with nearly the same birth dates shown here. However, the town of Clinton did not even exist at the time most of these children were born. The book attributes its information to the Billings Bible (Mary) in the possession of Miss Georgia E. Billings of Clinton, ME. Your authors have not determined when that Bible was printed, but believe it to be a secondary source. In particular, it has Daniel's wives mixed up (the names are clearly established by the vital records of both Lincoln and Concord). For further confirmation, we reviewed microfilms of the original Lincoln vital records and found that the birth dates of the children were entered chronologically as the events occurred.4,6 Daniel Billings and his family moved from Lincoln, MA to Mason, Hillsborough County, NH some time before 1792 when he appears on the tax rolls of Mason, NH.
