They were answered with defiance, "Come on, you cowards, we are ready for you. Show us your yellow hides and we will make holes in them for you". After four hours of fighting the Indians withdrew, carrying off their dead and wounded, and shooting the horses, cattle, hogs and sheep, till the place was strewed with their dead bodies. Abraham Rice was wounded in the arm and thigh, but had no bones broken; only one man of the six was killed.

We have reason to suppose that Daniel Rice and Abraham Rice were descendants of Edmund Rice."
Your authors note that the Rice Fort was documented to exist by Major George Washington who led the Virginia militia into Pennsylvania during the French and Indian War. Y-DNA analysis has shown that there were many different Rice families in colonial America. Therefore, it is very unlikely that Daniel and Abraham Rice were Edmund Rice descendants.6

     Abigail Rice was born circa 1700, according to her gravestone.2 She married Capt Palmer Goulding on 4 December 1722 at Concord, MA; both of Sudbury.3,4,5,6 Abigail Rice died in 1770 at Holden, MA; aged 70y.7,2 She was buried at Plot 114, Old Common Cemetery, Worcester, MA.2
     There is uncertainty about the Rice ancestry of Abigail Rice. Ward says that she was "of another race", that is, not an Edmund Rice descendant. Ward ascribes her parents as Timothy Rice and Abigail Marrett of Concord, MA. In the year 2001 an Edmund Rice descendant from another line claimed that Abigail was Abigail Rice, daughter of John Rice and Abigail Clapp, born 8 September 1703 at Sudbury. Here is the evidence:
... Abigail Rice and Palmer Goulding were married at Concord, MA on 4 December 1722, both of Sudbury according to the Concord vital records.
... Abigail Goulding died in the year 1770 at age 70 according to a transcript of her gravestone at the Old Common Cemetery, Worcester.
... Timothy Rice, Ward's reputed father, estate was taken on 12 September 1692.
... Abigail Goulding's youngest child was born in the year 1739.
This is compelling evidence that Abigail was not the daughter of Timothy and Abigail Rice. However, given Ward's assertion that Abigail was not an Edmund Rice descendant we need evidence that she was the daughter of John and Abigail Rice of Sudbury (or of some other Rice). A will, estate probate record, or some other paper from John Rice that names daughter Abigail Goulding would be that compelling evidence.3

     Abigail Rice was born on 10 March 1673/74 at Marlborough, MA, (literally 1673).3,4,2 She was the daughter of Samuel Rice and Mary Dix. Abigail Rice died after 1684.
     Ward lists Palmer Goulding as spouse, but then goes on to explain that the Abigail Rice who married Goulding was a completely different person, the daughter of Timothy Rice of Concord (q.v.). It would appear that Ward initially believed that this Abigail was indeed the bride of Palmer Goulding but then found compelling contrary evidence. Regrettably, Ward does not describe the evidence.5

     At one point, a contributor claimed that Adonijah's daughter Abigail was really a son Nathaniel, but without offering any evidence in support. Now that the vital records have been examined, it is clear that Abigail was indeed Abigail, as stated in Ward and two of the Supplements. The remnant of the original Abigail-renamed-Nathaniel is still maintained in the ERA database for future reference as #3163, but not linked to any family. He and Persis Gates resided circa 1739 at Worcester, MA.9 Adonijah Rice was in the military circa 1755 serving in the French and Indian War, member of Capt. Andrew Dalrymple's company for five months, ending 12 Dec. 1755. In 1756 he was a sergeant in the company, "age 43, cooper, born and resident of Worcester."9,10 He resided before 1802 at Bridport, VT, with his son, Abel, whom he survived.8

     Anna Rice was born before 1771 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS. The Rice Gen'l Register gives her year of birth as 1783. With a marriage year of 1791, she must have been born before 1775. The 1770 census for Annapolis shows her parents with three in the household, two American and one Acadian. It is very likely that she was born in 1769 or early 1770.2,1 She was the daughter of Ebenezer Rice and Tabitha Balcom. Anna Rice married Michael Spurr, son of Michael Spurr and Jane Shippey, on 3 December 1791 at Saint Lukes Anglican Church, Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS.3,1 Anna Rice died on 8 April 1827.4

     Anna Rice was born on 19 November 1661 at Sudbury, MA.4,5 She was the daughter of Deacon Edward Rice and Agnes Bent. Anna Rice married Thomas Rice, son of Thomas Rice and Mary King, on 10 January 1681/82 at Marlborough, MA; (literally January 1681 per vital records, 11th month 1681 per Ward, but November 1717 per Rice Gen'l Register, apparently due to careless copying from Ward, who speaks of the 1717 division of Marlborough in the very next phrase). Note that the marriage is found in the published vital records of Marlborough and not those of Sudbury, contrary to the assertion in Rice Supplement 2 Part 1. However, the marriage entry came from the county records and gives only one surname between groom and bride. In any case, the 1717 date is inconsistent with the known children born to this couple.6,2,3,7 Anna Rice died on 2 May 1731 at Westborough, MA; wife of Thomas.6,8
     She and Thomas Rice lived in the portion of Marlborough that became Westborough.6 Anna Rice and Thomas Rice resided after 1717 at Westborough, MA, when part of the Town of Marlborough was set off as Westborough.6

Sons Benjamin and Joseph are listed separately. (Cousin Beriah Rice's family had already moved away.) The three females can only be Anna (wife), Sarah (b1753), and Elizabeth (b1756) as daughter Anna died in 1751. The 1770 census lists four persons in the household, all American. Therefore, your authors believe that Anna was alive at Annapolis in 1768 and 1770.7

     Asaph Rice was born circa 1778, according to his obituary.2 He was the son of Beriah Rice Jr and Meriam (?). Asaph Rice married Nancy Elderkin, daughter of Jeptha Elderkin and Emma Johnson, on 9 June 1803 at Horton, Kings Co, NS; by Rev Twining.3,1 Asaph Rice died on 11 May 1860 at Bridgetown, Annapolis Co, NS; aged 82y, according to his obituary.4,5
     The Rice Gen'l Register reports that Asaph was born in Cape Breton, NS. We know that Asaph's father, Beriah Jr, started out in the Annapolis Valley, moved to Dartmouth, and arrived in Cape Breton about 1799. Note that Asaph's sons were recorded in Bridgetown, Annapolis County, in the mid 19th century and that Asaph died there in 1860. It is almost certain that Asaph was one of Beriah Jr's first offspring and that he was born in Annapolis County.

     Ashbel Rice was born on 28 April 1755 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,3,4 He was the son of Capt. Jesse Rice and Beulah (?). Ashbel Rice married Persis Knights on 14 July 1779 at Marlborough, MA.1,2,3,5 Ashbel Rice died on 23 February 1838 at Lubec, ME.3
     He was in the military where he fought at the Lexington Alarm, Lake Champlain, Bemis Heights, Saratoga. He was a pensioner.3 He resided at Marlboro; Templeton; Digby, Nova Scotia; and Belfast, Waldo & Lubec, Maine.3
There was indeed an Ashbel Rice who was granted 250 acres in the Hatfield Grant in what is now Digby, Nova Scotia. The Hatfield Grant was issued on January 29, 1801 in order to settle land claims in what was then known as Annapolis County. The land in question had previously been granted under the "Botsford Grant" in 1784 but none of the grantees had fulfilled the conditions of the grant. Therefore property was forfeited to the Crown. The lands in question had been settled by other people who had made improvements and wanted to have legal title to their property. Many of those included as grantees were given their property as a reward for military services to the British Crown during the American Revolution or as compensation because their property in the US had been confiscated because they had remained loyal to England. The "Hatfield Grant" consisted of 91632 acres and was issued to 275 individuals and one Church. The area was designated by the name of the Township of Digby and was still part of the County of Annapolis. As Ashbel fought for the American Colonies, it seems somewhat unlikely that he would have joined the Loyalists in Nova Scotia after the American Revolution. Was it because his brother, Dr Jesse Rice, a Loyalist, was living at Yarmouth, NS or some other place in the vicinity?

     Bathshebah Rice was born on 6 October 1753 at Nichewaug (Petersham), MA.3,2 She was the daughter of Amos Rice and Martha Hagar.1 Marriage banns for Bathshebah Rice and John Hagar were published on 20 January 1776 at Shutesbury, MA.2 Marriage banns for Bathshebah Rice and John Hagar were published on 20 January 1776 at Petersham, MA; listed as John of Shutesbury.4
     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" There were an Amos Rice and a Silas Rice living at Petersham in 1777. Dr. Oliver Strickland was their family physician.1

     Benjamin Rice was born on 8 March 1785 at Bennington, VT.1,2 He was the son of Silas Rice and Lucy Knapp.8 Benjamin Rice married Matilda Gaby, daughter of George W Gaby Sr and Esther Twitchell, on 19 April 1807 at Bennington, VT; Town Record, Bennington, VT: Name of Groom, Benjamin Rice; Name of Bride, Matilda Gaby; Residence of Groom, Bennington; Residence of Bride, Bennington; Name of Party Officiating, Jon'a Robinson, Justice of Peace; E A BOOTH, Town Clerk (Rice Gen'l Register indicates the date of marriage as 1 January 1807).9,2,3,4,6 Benjamin Rice died on 8 March 1853 at on the Rice farm, Enosburg Falls, VT; at age 69. The Historical Gazetteer has the following: "Benjamin Rice, from Bennington, came into town in 1806, and his family in 1808; he was 69 years old the day of his death."9,2,3,5,10,11 He was buried after 8 June 1863 at Old Congregational Churchyard, Enosburg Center, VT, their gravestones read: Benjamin Rice, Born March 8 1784, Died March 8 1853; His Wife Matilda Gaby, Born April 2 1786, Died June 8 1863. Also buried there in the row as follows: B.H.R; Persis G; T. Irish; John A; (Matilda); (Benj).2,10,11
     He was sworn a freeman of the town on 3 September 1805 at Bennington, VT.12
In 1805 he was given title to the land, and in March 1806 he set off on a good riding horse, his wardrobe rolled and strapped to the saddle, on the 130 mile journey to the north from Bennington. He had only an axe and a knife with him, and a little money with which he secured board and room with a family named Bogue, near Enosburg. He then began the hard labor of clearing some of his land to farm. He built a simple log cabin, interior boards fastened with wooden pegs, roof of poles covered with heavy slabs of bark tied down with withes (he had no shingles). He made sashes for the two windows (one at each end of the cabin), chimney and fireplace of stone. He made all household furniture (crude but functional): a bedstead, table, chairs and stools, pails and tubs. He cut and stacked firewood to dry (to be ready for their first winter). Nearby he built a small barn for the horse. Then, having prepared the homestead, he returned to Bennington, married Matilda, and worked to earn money to buy livestock.
In March 1808, he and Matilda journeyed to their new home at Enosburg, with their first child, Mary. They went in a sleigh drawn by a stout horse, traveling without benefit of roads. They lived in the crude cabin, later building a larger cabin, and in 1818 they built the great farmhouse.
The farm produced to meet their needs. Maple sugar was made each spring, and was a treat which the Vermont family shipped west and shared with three generations of Rices in Iowa, Nebraska, and Colorado.2 He was a farmer at Enosburg Falls, VT.2 He and Matilda Gaby were members of the Enosburg Congregational Church, Enosburg, VT. They raised a family who were all deeply committed to the church. Benjamin was a Deacon. He and Matilda and family began and ended each day with Bible reading and prayer. They were "Puritans" in the best sense of that tradition.2 Benjamin Rice was in the military in September 1814 at Plattsburg, NY, being a Vermont Volunteer, War of 1812 - 6 days service to Plattsburg, NY.13
At the age of 17 years, Benjamin hired out to Judge Robinson, living with and working for the Robinson family until he was 21 years old for which service he was to receive board and room, clothing, winter schooling, and at age 21, a 75 acre tract of land located in Enosburg, Vermont.
The record of the descendants of Benjamin Rice is based in large part on interviews with his descendants conducted by James Albert Rice during the years 1995 to 1999. These interviews provided many valuable personal recollections about members of the family. This record is much enriched by these recollections.
Descendants of Benjamin Rice are reminded that you should confirm your line of descendance with primary records such as birth, marriage, and death certificates. Personal recollections provide superb pointers about where and when to look for primary records. However, personal recollections are sometimes not accurate in detail.

Beriah Rice1,2


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Beriah Rice was born on 20 August 1702 at Marlborough (Westborough), MA.3,4,2 He was the son of Thomas Rice and Anna Rice. Beriah Rice married Mary Goodenow, daughter of Samuel Goodenow and Sarah (?), on 6 January 1730/31 at Westborough, MA.5,2,6 Beriah Rice died before 27 June 1764. Your author speculates that Beriah may have been visiting son Stephen or Benjamin in Massachusetts when his will was written and at the time of his death.
Judge Savary presents the List of Names of Confirmation of the Township of Annapolis, dated October 30th, 1765. Both Beriah and Beriah, Junr are listed. Paul Haseltine is also listed although we have good evidence that by late 1765 Paul was founding a new town in what is now the state of Vermont. We may assume that the town fathers padded the list of names as Beriah Sr was dead and Paul Heseltine was living in Vermont by that time.7,8
     He and Mary Goodenow resided in February 1731 at Westborough, MA. Ward reports that Beriah Rice moved in 1748 to Annapolis, NS. We now know that the year was 1760.9 Beriah Rice left Boston on 23 May 1760 on the ship Charming Molly and arrived at Annapolis, Nova Scotia, on 25 June 1760. He had with him two oxen and two cows. The passenger list shows three Rice males: Benjamin, Stephen, and Beriah, but perhaps both Beriah and his namesake son, as well as the two other sons named on the list, all traveled together. Then again, perhaps only one Beriah (but which one?) went on this
voyage.10 Beriah Rice left a will on 15 June 1763 at Worcester, MA, which was recorded 27 Jun 1764 at Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. The will cited his wife Marcy (sic), eldest son Judah, second son Asaph, third son Timothy, younger sons Beriah, Benjamin, Joseph, and Stephen, eldest daughter Marcy (sic) wife of Paul Hareltine (sic), second daughter Lucy, third daughter Rachael, and fourth daughter Sarah. Beriah left to his wife Marcy one half right to his farm "on the east side of the creek known as Bloody Bridge Creek (Annapolis, NS)..." for the space of six years "but at the expiration of said term the above mentioned half right (to the) farm shall be to son Timothy's hereafter ...". Beriah left the other half of his land and farm dwelling on the east side of Bloody Bridge Creek to his son Timothy. " I give and bequeath to my eldest daughter Mary, wife of Paul Haseltine, four pounds lawful money of the Province of the Massachusetts Bay."
     The will was written in Worcester (County?), MA and witnessed by Daniel Hardy, Abigail Adams, and Jonathan Bond and recorded by Francis Whipple, Justice of Peace. Your author notes that the names Adams, Bond, and Whipple are found nowhere in surviving records of Annapolis or Granville for the 1760s. Beriah Rice had close cousins by these names living at Westborough, MA at the time that the will was written. It is very likely that the will was written at Westborough, Worcester County, MA.7

Beriah Rice Jr1,2,3


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Beriah Rice Jr was born on 16 August 1747 at Westborough, MA, (not found in the published records).3 He was baptized on 16 August 1747 at Sudbury, MA; not in the record of the First Parish Church, Sudbury (Rice Gen'l Register indicates date of baptism as 16 August 1746).1,2,4 He was the son of Beriah Rice and Mary Goodenow. Beriah Rice Jr married Meriam (?) circa 1770 at Annapolis County, NS; the marriage of Beriah Rice to Navine McQuillan, cited in the Rice Genealogical Register, is in error. In the past there was uncertainty about who was the first wife of Beriah (Jr). Recent research by Sherri Tomiak (2004) into the land records for Annapolis and Halifax counties record that Beriah Rice and Meriam Rice, his wife, signed land papers as early as January 1770 and as late as March 1783 as residents of Annapolis, as residents of Dartmouth between March 1787 and December 1789, and as residents of Halifax in February 1790. Based on these land records we can conclude that Beriah Rice's first wife was Meriam and that she was alive as late as 1790.2,5 Beriah Rice Jr married Catherine Owens circa 1798 at Nova Scotia; Your authors have concluded that the Rice Gen'l Register is unreliable in regard to Beriah's family. There seems to be no justification for asserting that he had a daughter Naomi, for example.6,7,2 Beriah Rice Jr married Catherine Ann (?) after 1801; Although there is uncertainty about whether Beriah had two or three wives, the 1818 census tells us that his last wife was the mother of Robert Muckford Rice and that her name was Catherine Ann. There is speculation that she was the daughter of Robert Mugford, who befriended Beriah, because Beriah named his son Robert Muckford. It is equally probable that Beriah named his son Robert Muckford Rice because of the senior Robert's kindness to Beriah. Therefore, your author does not give Catherine Ann the family name Muckford.8 Beriah Rice Jr died before 1818 at Baddeck, Victoria Co, NS; as his wife was listed as a widow in the 1818 census at Baddeck, Cape Breton.9
     He and Meriam (?) had 10 children.8 Beriah Rice Jr resided between 1760 and 1770 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS, M.10 He emigrated on 17 May 1760 from Boston, MA, the Rice Genealogical Register reports that Beriah Rice emigrated on the ship Charming Molly with 45 persons aboard. The record of that voyage has survived and names the three Rice men -- Benjamin, Stephen, and Beriah. The named Beriah may have been this Beriah or Beriah's father.2,11 He and Meriam (?) resided between 1770 and 1783 at Annapolis, Annapolis Co, NS.12 Beriah Rice Jr resided between 1792 and 1793 at McNabs Island, Halifax, Halifax Co, NS, where he was listed on the tax assessment record as a laborer.13
Some family historians have said that there were two Beriah's and some, three. Few documents of that time have survived. We are indebted to the late Dr Laurence Patterson, late Director Emeritus of the Edmund Rice (1638) Association, who discovered the following memorial, extracted from the Cape Breton Land Papers 1800-1808. This land paper provides very compelling evidence that there were only a Beriah Sr and Beriah Jr:
"The memorial of Beriah Rice, born in America humbly sheweth. That your Honor's memorialist hath been in the Province of Nova Scotia and this Island since the fourteenth year of his age ... that your memorialist has been a married man since the year 1775 - his first wife dieing after having a family of ten children - six of which are now living some with families and some singel (sic), that your memorialist is now married to a second wife - having now a family by her in three years, two children. The whole of your memorialist's offspring being bred to Industry in the farming line --- your memorialist hopes if encouraged by your Honor with a license of occupation for whatsoever quality of land your Honor may think (fitting for his) use by bringing his offspring together - hopes in the fiture (sic) that there may be a settlement of a little village of His own family.
"That your memorialist hath been for nearly two years living in a house of Robert Mugford, at Baddeck, in assisting him and adjoining to his premises hath in the course of these last two years cleared and cultivated about 7 or 8 acres which were never cleared, occupied, or possessed before ... ... Beriah Rice, Sydney C.B. October 30, 1801."
The Cape Breton Land Paper and the Parish Record of St George Church, Sydney, NS provide compelling evidence that Beriah's second wife in 1799 was Catherine Owens and that Beriah and Catherine had at least two children. One of their children was Catherine Rice, born before 18 September 1799.8,3,2 He and Catherine Owens resided on 30 October 1801 at Baddeck, Victoria Co, NS.8

     Caleb Rice was born on 24 August 1744 at Sturbridge, MA, (literally 1745, but that is apparently an error).5,1,2,3,4 He was the son of Rev. Caleb Rice and Priscilla Payson. Caleb Rice was christened on 26 August 1744 at Sturbridge, MA.5
     The Rice Family Supplement assigns this Caleb an alternate reference number (962a), evidently because of confusion over the mismatch between birth and baptism records. In addition, both the Supplement and Rice Genealogical Register say this Caleb married a Sarah, and the Rice Register, in particular, obviously confuses this Caleb with another (WRN 1381).3,2

     Charles Rice was born on 1 March 1730/31 at Westborough, MA.2 He was the son of Charles Rice and Rachel Wheeler. Leah Jennings married 1st Charles Rice on 6 January 1758 at Brookfield, MA, Charles of Westboro', Mass; Leah of Brookfield, Mass.1,3,4 He died circa 14 March 1758 at Brookfield, MA.5
     Charles was killed by Indians prior to 1758. Ward's The Rice Family indicates that he, living in Westboro', served for 6 months in John Toplin's (militia) company in 1755 and in 1757 with Captain Fay's (militia) company. It doesn't indicate whether Charles was killed by Indians while on active duty or during some other encounter. Evidently he and Leah Jennings were only married for 3 months before his death. His widow Leah settled his estate. Inventory £425 29 December 1758, one item of which included 100 acres of land in Brookfield, held by deed from his brother Elijah Rice, dated 16 February 1754.
In settlement of her administration account, 30 April 1761, Leah claimed "allowance for supporting Charles, the only child of her husband Charles, 3 years old the 7th of March last, being but one week old at the death of his father."5

     Cyprian Rice was born on 17 December 1691 at Marlborough, MA, (1693 per Ward).3,4 He was the son of Capt. Peter Rice and Rebecca Howe. Cyprian Rice married Lydia Rice, daughter of Benjamin Rice and Mary Rice, on 25 December 1721 at Marlborough, MA.3,5,2 Cyprian Rice died in November 1788 at Brookfield, MA; (not found in the published records).6 The estate was probated on 2 December 1788 at Worcester County, MA.7
     Ward subdivided this person into three supposed children of Peter Rice: twins Zipporah and Zephaniah, born on the correct date, and Cyprian, born a couple of years later. The 'twins' are apparently just mangled versions of the name in Cyprian's birth entry in the Marlborough vital records: 'Zipperan'. The name 'Zephaniah' was probably also partly due to confusion with a second cousin Zephaniah (WRN 306) who was born nine years later (also at Marlborough). He and Lydia Rice resided in 1722 at Brookfield, MA.6 Cyprian Rice left a will on 17 November 1785 at Brookfield, MA, the will mentions son Solomon; daughter Betty Bridges; and grandsons Moses Rice and Silas Bridges.7

Damaris Rice1,2


Learn more about Edmund Rice and these pages at our association home page.

     Damaris Rice was born in 1761 at Rutland District (Barre), MA, (not found in the published records). She was the daughter of Ralph Rice and Sarah Sawyer. Damaris Rice married Benjamin Stuart, son of Joseph Stewart and Mary Snow, on 8 February 1787 at Barre, MA; listed as Benjamin of Leominster and Damaris of Barre.3,4,1,2 Damaris Rice died on 11 February 1841 at Sterling, MA; aged 79y,
under the name Stuart.5,6 She was buried at Chocksett Cemetery, Sterling, MA.5
     Her identification as the daughter of Ralph Rice is based on circumstantial evidence. In particular, she named one of her sons
Ralph Rice Stuart. However, that happened after Ralph Rice had already married her husband's widowed mother, and so an alternate interpretation is possible. Another piece of evidence is the fact that John Rice (WRN 1732), a son of Ralph, was living with the Stuarts at the time of the 1850 census. Again, this fact is suggestive but not conclusive, since John could instead have lived with one of his own children. Finally, Abel Rice (WRN 1731), who is believed to be another son of Ralph, named one of his daughters Damaris. She was evidently living with her son Benjamin in 1840, according to
the census tallies. Her son Benjamin Stuart was appointed administrator of her estate three
weeks after her death.7
