Daniel Buck RICE       (ID #I34121)

(male)
Father: Abner RICE (b. ABT 1787, d. AFT 1834)
Mother: Keziah BUCK (b. ABT 1790, d. AFT 1834)

Family 1 : Rosanna NICKEY (b. 22 FEB 1822, d. 7 SEP 1862)
  1.  James C. RICE (b. ABT 1841, d. ABT 1873)

  8.  Samuel N. RICE (b. 19 JUN 1854, d. 12 NOV 1859)
Family 2 : Mary Jane (WALKER) STEWART (b. SEP 1840)
  1.  Owen Wilson RICE (b. 5 DEC 1865)
  2.  Charles Allen RICE (b. FEB 1867)

Nothing is known about Daniel's early life in New York or exactly when he arrived in Indiana. However, by 1840 he was employed as a field surveyor, attached to the government land office at Fort Wayne, IN. (See Nickey Family by Ella M. Milligan). Shortly after his marriage Daniel turned to farming in Whitley Co., IN, where other members of his wife's family lived. He also dabbled in local politics as well, serving twice as County Commissioner.

After the death of Rosanna, and his marriage to Jennie, Daniel and his family moved to Minnesota where he opened a general store and helped start a new town, then known as East Chain Lake. In later years Daniel operated the East Chain grist mill, then the Victoria Mill. The family lived in Fairmont, MN for many years.

Mary Jane or "Jennie" had a daughter, Etta, by her first husband. Etta was born circa 1862 in Pennsylvania. She was enumerated with the Rice family in Martin Co., MN in the 1870 federal census, as Etta Stewart. Also in the Minnesota state census for 1875. At the time of her marriage (20 May 1879) she was using the surname Rice, as reported in the local newspaper.

July 2006: On internet, (rootswebworldconnect) info from one Richard Belding Gilbert gives considerable info about the Belding family; where they resided after their marriage, etc. Etta's name is given as Etta Virginia Rice.

July 2006: Checked 1920 census on line and found Etta Belding in Tulsa, OK with son-in-law Dennis Swisher and wife, Naomi, who was Etta's daughter. Other daughter, Mae, was part of this household. Again, Stella Gould's notes were correct.

  2.  Ruth RICE (b. 29 SEP 1659, d. 30 MAR 1742)

According to the latest Rice Assn. bulletin (Fall 2008) there is now DNA evidence to suggest that Edmund Rice was not Welsh in his paternal line. He was living in East Anglia at his earliest appearance in the public record and there is now no reason to suppose that his ancestors had not been living there since the Middle Ages. This is still speculation but, hopefully, future research will prove this is true.

Gershom RICE       (ID #I35028)

(male)
Father: Thomas RICE (bp. 26 JAN 1625/6, d. 16 NOV 1681)
Mother: Mary KING (b. ABT 1630, d. 22 MAR 1714/5)

Inscription from the Old Burial Ground in Worcester, MA: "Here lies Buried ye Body of Gershom Rice, who died Dec. ye 19th A.D. 1768, in ye 102d year of his age".

Gershom Rice was the second settler of Worcester, coming here in 1715. Selectman 1724, 1727, 1731, 1733, 1736, 1746. Town Treasurer, 1736-39. It was at his house that religious services were first held in this town. It was through the personal effort of Mr. Rice in a letter to the Governor of the Province that a guard of nineteen men was stationed in 1724 for the defense of the settlers.

Marlborough, MA records show that Gershom removed to Groton, CT before 1698 but returned to Marlborough before 1713, when he was a petitioner for a new settlement at Worcester, which had been broken up by the Indians. Gershom removed to Worcester and his children settled in that area.

Little is known about his early childhood, except that he was raised in Whitley Co., IN, near many of his mother's relatives. During the Civil War Henry enlisted in Co. B, 74th Infantry, Indiana Volunteers, with a rank of Corporal. While many records refer to his marching with General Sherman and being wounded in battle at Lovejoy Station, only his medical records have been located through the National Archives. These records reveal that Henry contracted a severe case of measles, then mumps, and he spent considerable time in military hospitals in Danville, KY and Quincy, IL. While Henry recuperated from these illnesses, his rank was reduced to Private and he was employed as a cook. Later he was promoted to rank of Musician. Family legend was that he served as a "drummer boy". His old flute and fife were in the family for many years. Physical description given in medical records showed that Henry was 5' 10" when he enlisted in the Army at age 19 and was 6' tall when he mustered out in 1865. He had a light complexion, blue eyes and dark hair. After the war Henry taught school for a year, then married Sarah E. Reed. They moved to East Chain, Martin Co., MN, where Henry's father had previously settled. By 1874 Henry started medical training, studying with Dr. Winch of Blue Earth, MN, then received further schooling at Rush Medical, in Chicago, IL, where he graduated in 1886. Dr. Rice practiced in Fairmont, MN until 1897, then moved to Santa Ana, CA, where he continued in medical practice until 1907. There are many interesting articles about the Rice family on file at the Fairmont Historical Society in Fairmont, MN.
