I received an email from Carol Sturdevant, nee, Callaway, from New York. She asked that we input the Siskiyou County portion of her family as well as parts of the same family from the state of California. That's one of the reasons we decided to add this User Contribution section. We'd like to thank Carol for her information and hope we get it up nice enough to do it justice.
her email, Carol stated: "Here, as promised, is
what I have on the BRICE family. The USA part of this was compiled by Mabel Alvina BROWN nee BRICE and sent to me by one of her best friends. The Channel Islands part comes from my own family records and copies of church records and census figures sent to me by helpful people who live in Alderney.

following information is from Carol's email:
Frederick William George BRICE sailed from Liverpool, England on the ship Umbria (Cunard Line) to New York in April of 1882. He would have been 12 years old and his father had been dead just about 1 year. He left in Alderney a brother, Walter BRICE, 2 sisters, Mabel Brewer BRICE, and my grandmother Lillian Adele Marcomb BRICE as well as his mother Lillian (Elizabeth?) BRICE, nee BREWER, who ran a small candy store.
My grandmother, Lillian, was an infant of 1 yr. when Frederick sailed to the USA. She sailed to New York, herself in July 1912, just after the Titanic had sunk. She came to marry the Rev. George N. CALLAWAY, who had left Alderney as a young man and entered the ministry in Canada and the US.
They had 2 children; my father, Warren George CALLAWAY, who is now 87 years old and my aunt, Sheila Mae CALLAWAY. For some reason, we did not know of Frederick's existence and this makes me very sad.
You see, we were in California in
in Monterey while my father was stationed there prior to going to Hawaii with
the US Army Corps of Engineers. His uncle and cousins were close by and we never knew!
I have the names of many other BRICES if anyone is interested, but it's too long for an email and I don't know how to condense it. The
Family Search site also has a lot of information.
By the way, Frederick's application for US citizenship was made in Superior Court, Siskiyou County, CA.
