PREFACE. 



Genealogical researches are not a iavorite pursuit with many per- 
sons. Yet the information derived from them is gratifying to all, and 
they are not few, that desire a knowledge of their ancestors and col- 
lateral kindred ; but in general have not the opportunity, without the 
aid of others, to acquire it beyond two generations. 

The results of such researches are likewise gratifying to the geneal- 
ogist ; not more for the information he thereby obtains for himself, than 
as furnishing him materials wherewith to oblige and gratify others. 
We think he feels no ordinary gratification, who obtains a record of 
his family race from a remote period to his own time ; one that he can 
consult and refer to at his own leisure and at his own fireside, and at 
length leave to his children as a M£ssen6eb, that would introduce to <ftem, 
as it had to him, numerous ancestors and kindred they never saw, or 
had heard of before ; but with whom they might commune with joy, 
yet not without sadness ; for although long since departed, they yet 
speak — speak through Record and tell of olden times ; of when and 
where they lived ; of their cotemporaries ; of their trials, and of the 
names of their children ; all past away, and, with many they once 
knew, forgotten. 

How many reminiscences of individual and family incidents will be 
thus called up, that had come down from generation to genemtioo, and 
become lost through failure of memory and lapse of time ! Family

IV PREFACE. 

tradition, thus revived, if it do not prolong life, may serve to make it 
more social in family circles and less wearisome to solitary and aged 
individuals. While the desire one has for a knowledge of his ancestors 
is common to all ; there are some who do not appear ever to have felt 
it. A greater degree of interest on the subject has prevailed through- 
out New England the last twenty years, than during the whole previous 
period since its settlement, and is rapidly increasing ; stimulated, no 
doubt, in part by John Farmer^s publication in 1829 of the names, 6zc., 
of many of the first settlers of New England. He belonged to New 
Hampshire, and was a genealogical pioneer in the New England 
States — family gatherings have added to that interest, but its great 
patron has been, as it yet is, the ** New England Historical and 
Grenealogical Society,'' located in Boston ; eleven volumes of whose 
publications are now before the public. The pedigrees of several 
families have been traced and published ; others are being so, and, in 
number, to an extent that justifies a belief, that the time is coming, 
when a library will not be considered properly furnished, unless it con- 
tains a history of the family to which it belongs. A family pedigree 
cannot be traced satisfactorily through a long period without a knowl- 
edge of the names, births, marriages and deaths of its progenitors ; nor 
fidly without information of all its individual membere, whether pro- 
genitora or not. Births and deaths are the boundaries of man's earthly 
pilgrimage — ^the termini of every individual's lease of life upon earth ; 
and unless recorded, (and the record preserved) are, after a length of 
time, known only by tradition ; and eventually even that varying rumor 
dies also— so that his very name, the last that memory retains of him, 
fails among men, and he that was becomes as unknown, and past finding 
out, as if he had never lived. 

This work comprises the genealogy of a succession of families, num- 
bering at least 1400, and containing the names of about 7000 individ- 
uals having one common ancestor in the person of Edmund Rice. Of 
his pedigree, we have no information, nor have we any in regard to 
him prior to the year 1627, when he with his family was living at 
. Berkhamstead, in the County of Hertfordshire in England ; he con-

tinued to live there several years and came to America as early as 
1638. His christian name in our public records of his day is generally 
spelt Edmond ; so far as we have discovered, he did not so spell it 
himself ; papers on the court files at Cambridge have his signature, 
Edmund ; and so it was written at Berkhamstead. He was the pro- 
genitor of a numerous and prolific race. So manfully have his de- 
scendants borne up his name in the land of his adoption, that, if any 
fears were ever entertained, that in time it would die out, they have 
been long since and forever put to rest. 

The name of Rice is of Welsh origin, and in Wales was written and 
spoken with the prefix, Ap. — ApRice — but not so in England nor in 
this country. ^ 



VI DEDICATION. 



TO THE DESCENDAJNTS OP EDMUND MCE. 

Having compiled, from materials I had collected, a genealogical his- 
tory of your family race, so far as contained in the following pages, 
and in so doing realized the satisfaction sought and anticipated there* 
from, I placed a manuscript copy of it at the disposal of some of 
your brethren, for the common benefit of all. It has been published 
by their direction. No name is more frequently met with on the rolls 
of those, that have, from time to time in New {England, entered the pub- 
lic service in defence of their country, than that of Rice ; the indi- 
viduals of which, in most instances, could be traced to your family. 
Branches of it are now in all parts of the land. Those living very 
rero4^te from the ^^ Homestead^'* whence the dispersion of the race 
began, cannot, in the nature of things, possess much knowledge of 
their ancestry, and perhaps have, for townsmen and neighbors, relatives 
that are unknown to them as such. Composing as you do the family 
that has been made the subject of that history, you will naturally read 
it with considerable interest, and no doubt rightly appreciate the motives 
that led to its production and excuse its imperfections. In the mean 
time I shall be a partaker in the satisfaction you and others may derive 
from it, or from any other source, that will extend among men a better 
knowledge of themselves by making them acquainted with the rounds 
of the ladder down which they came.

EXPLANATION. 

The figures in the first left hand column denote each individuaPs 
number in the whole number of individuals traced. Those in the 
second column, the number of children in the family* 

The figures in circumflex, in the right hand column, denote that the 
individual, against whose name they stand, is Jurther noticed on a 
subsequent page ; they also denote the particular number of his family 
in the ichoh number of families traced. He may be found, at the 
head of his family, by corresponding figures on the left hand of his 
name in the succeeding generation. 

The figures in brackets, following the name of the husband or 
wife, correspond with his or her number in the whole number traced, 
and to his or her number in the family to which they respectively 
belong.

VIU PUBLICATION. 



PUBLICATION. 

The circumstances under which this family history is published, are 
briefly these : For several years past, the descendants of Edmond 
Rice have been accustomed to meet annually at the old homestead, 
still in the possession of one of them, in Wayland, formerly a part of 
Sudbury. These gatherings, chiefly of a social character, have been 
attended not only by members of the family residing in the immediate 
vicinit}", but by many from remote places ; and the interest manifested 
in them has increased from year to year. 

At the meeting in August, 1856, Hon. Andrew H. Ward, of West 
Newton, was present, and stated that while pursuing his genealogical 
investigations in another direction, and with reference to another fam- 
ily, he had found occasion to refer, incidentally, to the descendants of 
Edmond Rice, and at length, becoming interested in the matter, he had 
devoted himself for some years to the preparation of a complete gen- 
ealogy of the Rice family. He then gratuitously tendered his manu- 
scripts for publication. The generous oflTer was of course at once 
accepted, with thanks to the donor, and the undersigned were chosen 
a committee of publication. No condition was annexed to the gift, 
except that the publication should be made in the life-time of Mr. Ward, 
and he be allowed its supervision. This has accordingly been done ; 
and he now presents the result of his labors in a form which shows 
how much time, patient industry, and untiring research he has disin- 
terestedly devoted to the work. We feel assured that, from its com- 
pleteness, accuracy, and convenient arrangement, it will be found to 
be an important addition to our genealogical literature ; and that with 
every member of the Rice family it will possess a peculiar value and 
interest, and the name of the author held in ever grateful remem- 
brance.

Cbiimtttee 
Putiioation, 



INTRODUCTION. 



Edmund Rice came from Barkhamstead, in the county of Hertford- 
shire, in England, and settled in Sudbury, Mass., in 1638 or 9 ; as he 
shared in the three divisions of land in Sudbury, the first of which was 
made in 1639, he was no doubt residing there at that time. 

No record has been found of his embarkation for this country, nor 
in what ship he came, or at what place he first arrived ; there is not so 
much as tradition on the subject. The first we find of him is at Sud- 
bury, with a wife and family of at least seven children that came over 
with him ; that place, called '^ the plantation lying near unto Concord,'^ 
was incorporated in 1639 by the name of Sudbury. His residence 
was on the east side of Sudbury river, in the southerly part of what is 
now Wayland, and near the border of the extensive meadows through 
which that river flows in a northeasterly course to the Merrimac. 

He was Selectman in 1644, and subsequent years ; Dea. of the chh. 
1648, and, in 1656, one of thirteen petitioners belonging to Sudbury, 
who besought the General Court for a new plantation, saying, " Where- 
as your petitioners have lived divers years in Sudbury, and God hath 
been pleased to increase our children, which are now, divers of them, 
grown to man^s estate, and wee, many of us grown into years, so as 
that wee should bee glad to see them settled before the Lord take us 
away from hence ; as also God having given us some considerable 
quantity of cattle, so that wee are so straightened, that wee cannot so 
comfortably subsist as could be desired ; and some of us having taken 
some pains to view the country, wee have found a place, which lieth 
Westward about eight miles from Sudbury, which wee conceive might 
bee comfortable for our subsistence," dec. 

Sudbury at that time contained less than seventy-five families, and in 

territory included what is now Wayland. One would naturally think 

they were "straightened" for the want of neighhorsy rather than for want 

of room for themselves, or meadotos wherefrom to procure subsistence

^ INTRODUCTION. 

for their cattle ; and so they found it, even twenty years later, when 
the town, with an increased population, was broken up and nearly de- 
stroyed by the Indians. Their petition was granted, and the plantation 
laid to them was incorporated by the name of Marlborough in 1660 ; 
whereto he removed and had a house lot of fifty acres granted to hira 
by the proprietors of that town, with the rights appertaining thereto in 
after divisions. 

His wife " Tamazine "died at Sudbury, June 13, 1654 ; the record 
of her death is the only one wherein her name has been found. 

His 2d wife was " Mercie," wid. of Thomas Brigham of Cambridge ; 
whom he married, March 1, 1655. His house lot in Marlboro^ on 
which he built and resided, was in the westerly part of the town, on 
the old county road leading from Marlboro^ to Northboro% and in the 
bend as it passes round the northerly side of the pond, a short distance 
northerly of the ancient " Williams tavern," afterwards kept by Gates 
and since by Wetherby. He was intrusted with various important du- 
ties by the General Court, which he discharged with a fidelity that occa- 
sioned repeated calls for his services, while the records of Sudbury 
and Marlboro' contain ample evidence of his vigilant and fatherly care 
in promoting the welfare of those infant settlements ; the destruction 
of which by the Indians, occurring a few years after, he was not per- 
mitted to see by reason of death. 

He died at Marlboro', May 3, 1663, and was buried at Sudbury. A 
deposition of his on the court files at Cambridge states his age, April 
3, 1656, to be " about 62 years" — hence he was born about 1594, and 
about 69 years old when he died. 

Inventory of Edmund Rice of Marlboro', taken May 15, 1663, by 
Thomas King, John Woods and John Stone, ^^566.0.0. House, &c., 
^170. 

Thomas King of Sud. was one of the petitioners for Marl.; John 
Woods was of Marl., and d. there 1678 ; John Stone was then of Sud. 
afterwards of Cambridge, and d. 1683. Inventory says, " due by bill 
from Mathew, Benjamin and Thomas Rice," [they were sons of the 
deceased,] " from William Brown," [he was of Sud., deacon and 
brother-in-law of deceased,] " from Benjamin Crane, John How," [J. 
How was then of Marl., for which he was a petitioner, and d. 1689,] 
" from Robert Wilson," [prob. of Cambridge,] " from Thomas Brig- 
ham," [step-son of the deceased, and of Marl.,] ^^ from Jonathan and 
Samuel Hide," (Hyde) [they were of Newton, brothers, and d. there ; 
Dea. Samuel, b. 1610, d. 1689; Jonathan, b. 1626, d. 1711.] 



INTRODUCTION. d 

By another paper in the Probate Office, it appears that an inventory, 
amounting to ^^743.8.4, was taken of the estate of Edmund Rice, 
" who died intestate," by William Ward, Thomas Loring, John Woods 
and John Stone, May 15, 1663. 

The two first of these are not named among those who took the first 
mentioned inventory, and one that is there named is omitted here. As 
both inventories bear the same date, and as he left property in Sudbury 
and Marlboro,* it may be that of those who took them some of them in- 
ventoried what he left in Sud., the others what he left in Marl., and . 
that their doings were consolidated in one return, and that their several 
original papers were left in the Probate Office. His widow Mercy, as 
admx., settled his estate. 

William Ward and Thomas Loring were of Sudbury, 1656, and 
were petitioners for Marl. The former, b. about 1603, removed to 
Marl. 1660, was deacon of the church there, and d. 1687. 

How the estate of Edmund Rice was distributed among the heirs 
does not appear ; there is some evidence tending to show that he left a 
vnll ; none has been found ; it may have been imperfect and never 
lodged for probate. Proposals for a division of his estate, but crossed 
over, are contained on a paper, whereby the division was to consist of 
12 parts, the widow to have 3. Another ^aper is found in which other 
' proposals than those " crossed over " were made, for a division, by 
which the widow was to pay to the " eight eldest children," viz., to the 
eldest, jf 40 ; to each of the others, jf 20 ; and to the two youngest, be- 
ing children by the widow, <£10 each. * 

His widow Mercy m. William Hunt of Marlboro', " Oct. or Nov." 
1664 ; an early settler in Concord, where he. had children, 1640, and 
wife, Elizabeth, who d. there, Dec. 27, 1661. He d. at Marlboro', 
Oct. 1667, and his widow Mercy, Dec. 28, 1693; having survived her 
first husband, Thomas Brigham, 40 years, who was the progenitor of 
the New England Brighams. Tradition says her family name was 

Having no data for a guide in arranging the children of Edmund 
Rice, that came over with him, they perhaps are not named in the 
order of their births. . They and their descendants here fdllow, pre- 
ceded by tl^eir pilgrim ancestor and patriarch, standing No. 1, at the 
head of his race.

d. without issue. No record of their marriage or of her death /- / 
has been found. He resided at Sud., removed to Marlboro*, /^^ 
1664, was deac. of the chh. there, and d. Aug. 15, 1712. By 
a paper on the court files at Cambridge, his age was 47, Oct. 2, 
1666 — if so, he was b. about 1619, and not far from 93 years 
old at the time of his death. 

His wid. Anna d. at Marlboro% June 4, 1713, aged 83. All 
his chil., except the eldest, whose birth is not found, were by 
his wife Anna — (he two youngest are recorded at Marl,, the 
others at Sud. 

Dea. Edward Rice and wife Anna of Marlboro^ conveyed, 
April 1, 1686, to their son Edmund Rice of Sud., half of the

and Marl., to the latter of which he removed about 1664. The 
births of six chil. are recorded at Sud., and those others, younger 
chil., at M., of which he was a proprietor. He d. there Nov. 
16, 1681. 

The Boston Gazette, of Dec. 26, 1768, contains a communi- 
cation on the subject of the longevity of his children, in which 
it is said he d. " at the age of 70 years ; " consequently, born 
about 1611. That his "age was 70 years" is manifestly an 
error, as it makes him only 17 years younger than his father,

His 2d wife was Maiyprownjwhom he m. at Sud., Sept. 
1668. Concord records say she d. June 18, 1678 — ^should be 
1675, instead of 1678. They had probably retired to Cojicord 
for a season as a place of refuge from the Indian enemy. 

His 3d wife was Sarah, widow of James Hosmer, Jr. of Con- 
cord, whom he m. Dec. 13, 1676. He d. at Marl., Feb. 25, 
1684-5, aged about 51. The births of his four eldest chil. are

and d. I'i567, leaving a son, Abraham, who d. at Marl. May, 
1678, aged 13, and in the record of his death is called son-in- 
law of Samuel Rice. 

The testimony of Thomas Fleg (Flagg) of Watertown, 1679, 
on court files, is, that " Samuel Rice m. Mary, widow of Abra- 
ham Brown, about one year after Brown^s death ; and that she 
lived with him seven years, and then she died." 

The family name of his 3d wife, Sarah^ was White. She 
m. James Hosmer, Jr. (son of James Hosmer of Concord) Oct. 
13, 1658. He was killed by the Indians at '' Sudbury fight" 
in the spring of 1676. 
" " Samuel Rice and Stephen Hosmer motion to court, 1667, 

that James Hosmer, Jr. of Concord, being slayne by Indians, 
and said Rice having m. his widow, that his estate may be set- 
tled." James Hosmer, Sen. came from Kent, Eng., and was 
one of the first settlers of Concord, where he d. Feb. 7, 1685. 

The will of Samuel Rice, Feb. 10, 1684, proved April 7, 
1685, gave to wife Sarah, to sons Joshua and Edmund, to daus. 
Elizabeth Haynes, Hannah Hubbard and Esther Hubbard, to 
my son Samuel Rice, whom I have given to brother and sister 
King for their own, to sons Edward and Joseph, and 2 daus., 
Mary and Abigail Rice, under 18. His brothers Edward and 
Joseph Rice were overseers of his will. Inventory ^£349.2.6.

Watertown, whom he m. 1670. She d. there, May 13, 1677, 
aged 34. He was no doubt temporarily residing there, in 
consequence of the destruction of Marl, by the Indians in 
1676. His 4th wife was Sarahs by whom he had two chil- 
dren at Watertown, and one, the youngest, at Marl., after his 
return. 

His brother, Samuel Rice, appointed him one of the over- 
seers of his will, Feb. 10, 1684, which is the latest record 
of him that has been found.

It is not improbable his last wife was Sarah Wheeler, as 
Isaac Wheeler, about 1682, chose his father-in-law, Joseph 
Rice, for his guardian. Seven of the above named children 
have their births on Marl, records.

belonging to Aim, has been discovered. 

The following appears in Mid- Prob. Records : —

9 acres 124 rods near W. side GrQodman's Mill. 
32^ acres at ye Allowance. 

10 acres at Ashen swamp near Mr. Graves's. 
Mathew Rice and Isaac Rice, Admrs., Apl. 12, 1714. 
Receipts of chiL and Gr. chiL of Edmund Rice — viz., 

Jonathan Rice ; John Rice ; Thomas Drury ; Peter Haynes ; 
Thomas Brintnal, Atty. for Phineas Rice, Ebenezer Rice, 
Gershom and James Rice. 

Mathew Rice, one of the admrs., was the only surviving 
son, in 1714, of Edmund, Sen. ; and Isaac Rice, the other 
admr., was son of Mathew ; and all those receipting were 
gr. chil. of Edmund Rice, Sen. Those lands probably ac- 
crued from rights in lands in which Edmund Rice, Sen., had 
an interest, but undivided in his life-time.

May 23, 1685, Benjamin Rice, of Sudbury, sued Dr. Wil- 
Ham Avery, of Boston, for malpractice. Verdict for de- 
fendant. In that suit, Daniel Pond testified that, " ten years 
ago, Benjamin Rice, of Sudbury, came to my house, in 
Dedham, with his feet frozen, and lodged there. Dr. William 
Avery^s son, Benjamin, cut off one foot at the lowest joint, 
and stanched the blood .with a musquash skin." Dr. William 
Avery does not appear, by the evidence in the case, to have 
^ been present at the operation. The malpractice, if any, was 
therefore not chargeable to him, but to his son, Benjamin ; — 
hence the verdict. Mary, wife of Benjamin Rice, d. Jan 3, 
1690-1. He d. at Sudbury, Dec. 19, 1713, in his 74th year— 
his only child,

births of the three youngest are recorded ; and where he d. Dec. 8, 1653, aged

St Sudbniy. Neither the records of that town, nor those of Middlesex -County, 
fhmish any eridence of his ever having resided in that town. It is probable he m. 
after his arriyal here, and had two chil. b. elsewhere than at Cambridge, where 
he redded, bonndiog on Watertown line, near Charles Biver.

was in the New England Village) where he was a miller, Dep. Sheriff, Capt., &c. 
'' He led the Grafton minute men to Concord and Lexington, on the 19tii of April,

and joined the forces at Cambrid^in the Begt. of Col. Jona. Ward, and wu with his 
company in the battle of Banker Hill, and snoseqaently commissioned Lt. Colonel.

gagement, at the pressing instance of Gen. McDoag^l, who begged him to accept his 
Sifuiks for his services — ^he resided at Grafton for several years subsequent to 1786, and 
represented that town in the Greneral Court. 

" He sold his mill, public house and farm at Grafton, and removed to Marl., where 
he d. April 1, 1811, m his 74th year; and, as he requested, . was buried among the

Shutesbury, Nov. 13, 1803, and of the interview he had with him, remarks, " He was 
bom at East Sudbury, Mass., in 1687 ; and in one month from the date of our arrival, 
would complete his one hundred and sixteenth year. He was of middle stature, firmly 
built, plump, but not incumbered with flesh ; less withered than multitudes at seventy ; 
possessed of considerable strength, as was evident from the grasp of his hand and the 
sound of his voice, and without any marks of extreme a^. 

" About two months befS^, his sight became so impaired, that he was unable to dis- 
tinsnish persons ; his hearing, also, for a short time had been so imperfect, that he 
could not distinctly hear common conversation. 

" His memory was still vigorous, his understanding sound, and his mind sprightly in 
its conceptions. 

" The principal part of the time, which I was in the house, he held me by the hand, 
cheerftxlly answered all my questions, readily gave me an account of himself in such 
particnlan as I wished to know ; observed to me, that my voioe indicated, that I was

not less than forty-fiye years of age, and that he must appear rery old to me ; adding, 
howerer, that some men, who had not passed their seventieth year, prpbably looked 
almost or quite as old as himself. 

" We were informed partly by himself, and partly by his host, that he had been a 
laborions man all his life, and particularly, that he nad mown grass one hundred and 
one years successively — ^tJie preceding summer he had been able to perform this labor. 

" During this season his utmost effort was a walk of half a mile — ^in this walk he 
stumblefi over a los and fell — ^immediately afterwards he began evidently to decline, and 
lost in a considerable degree> both his sight and hearing ; in the summer of 1802, he 
walked without inconvenience tnfo miles, and mowed a small quantity of grass. — 
Throughout his life he had been uniformly temperate — ^ardent spirits he rarely tasted ; 
dder he drank at times, but sparingly. He is naturally cheerful and humorous, and 
not much inclined to serious thinking. According to an account, which he gave his 
host, he made a public profession of religion near seventy years before our visit to him. 
When he was ninety-three years old he made a contract with his host, who told us the 
story, that he should support him, during the remainder of his life, for £20. Three or 
four years before this time I saw in a newspaper an advertisement, written by a person 
who professed and appeared to be acquaintea with him and his concerns, in which it 
was said that hiff descendants, some of whom were of the fifth generation, amounted 
probably to more than 1500." 

The advertisement, spoken of by Dr. Dwight, may have been the communication 
published in the " Windsor QazeUe" Vt., and copied into the " Massachusetts Spy" 
printed at Worcester, August 5, 1801, from which the following extracts are made: 
" In Shutesbury in Mass., there is now living a man by the name of Ephraim Pratt, 
who was bom at East Sudbury in that State on the first dav of November, 1687." 

" At the ace of twenty-one ne was married to a young lady by the name of Martha 
Wheelock ; by whom he had six sons and two daughters — ^four of his sons are now 
living— the eldest of whom is 90 and the youngest 82 years of age— a few vears since 
Mr. Pratt received a visit from four youne persons, who were the grand children of his 
grand children"—" his diet has been chiel^^ oread and mUk — he has not made a meal of

aged 47. He next married Jemima, wid. of Isaac Tomlin, Jr., 
(not the dau. of Isaac Tomlin, as said in the history of Shrews-

92." " He has rendered himself famous of late for his attention to the fair sex — ^made 
suit to many young widows" — ** at the age of 105 he formed a connexion with a young 
lady of 22 years ; they were published, and the day of marriage appointed ; but owing 
to the fickleness of youth the connexion was dissolved." 

" His lote and affection has since been divided among a multitude of the Fair!" 

" The public may rely on the authenticity of this sketch, as the writer received his 
information from indubitable sources, as well as from Mr. Pratt, who is a man of strict 
veracity, clear intellects, and the most retentive memory." 0?hat communication, 
containing the foregoinj^ and many other remarkables of Mr. Pratt, one of which was 
that he assisted in building ^e causeway in Sud., was signed, " A Traveller." 

The "Spy" of June 6, 1804, published the death of Mr. Pratt at Shuteshury "on 
the 22d ult., aged 116 years, 5 months and 22 days," who repeated to a gentleman a 
short time since a part of a sermon he heard 90 years ago, and the 55th Chapter of 
Isaiah, and two Psalms." 

The " Spy" of the next week contained a communication from the Rev. Dr. Sumner 
of Shrewsbury, addressed to the printer, in which he says, " In your paper of the 6th 
Inst., we are told of Uie death of Mr. Pratt of Shuteshury, aged 116 years, 5 months 
and 22 days ; we conclude it was Ephraim Pratt, of whom we were told in yomr paper 
of Aug. 5, 1801, that he was then 114 years of flge ; that he, at the ase of 21, married 
to Martha Wheelock, by whom he had six sons and two daughters. As to his age at 
the time of marriage, the person whom he married, and the number of his children, the 
account is doubtless correct— it agrees with the information of the family [in this townl 
from which he married his wife — the Rev. Job Cushiuff's record and the town record 
of Shrewsbury show that that marriage was solemnized July 9, 1724 — his eldest child, 
Tiprus, was bom Oct. 1, 1725; SOas, Dec. 28, 1726; Ephraim, Feb. 7, 1728; Noah, 
Jan. 19, 1729 ; Micah, April 5, 1731 ; Abd, July 10, 1732 ; Backd, April 24. 1735, and 
Olive, April 16, 1739. He was probably bom 1703 — he removed from Shrewsoury to 
Shuteshury, about 1753, and was 101, or in his 102d year when he died." 

This account of the matter, given by Dr. Sumner more than 50 years ago, I have 
recently seen for the first time, and of which I had no previous knowledge — ^had Dr. 
Dwight have known of it when he published his " Travels," he would not have given 
credence to what he had been informed of Mr. Pratt's age — ^his '' Travels" in that par- 
ticular have led others, after a lapse of 'more than 30 years, to adopt as trae and give 
renewed publicity to an error, that has occasioned lone and unavailing researches to 
reconcile it with their knowledge of other thmgs. Mr. Pratt may not, at that inter- 
view, have himself deceived Dr. Dwight resoecting his age ; yet it is difficult to believe 
that he did not, upon discovering that the Dr. considered him to be much older than 
he really was, connive at his mistake, and confirm him in his error by not undeceiving 
him. 

He was b. at Sud. Nov. 30, 1704, and was 99 years, 5 months and 22 days old, when 
he d. May 22, 1804.

18 RICE FAMILY. 

This stating of a way to the spring was agreed to and signed 
by the two brothers, accepted by the proprietors, and record- 
ed in their book, page 10. William Jennison, Modr, 

John Rice surrendered, June 6, 1710, to his brother Ed- 
mund Rice, by deed, all his right to land '^ by the springs 
and on which some part of Deacon Edmund Rice^s house 
then stoojd." 

It was here their grandfather Edmund Rice first settled 
after coming to this country. Here was his homestead in 
Sudbury. This early mention of the spring, and the sub- 
sequent " laying out a way to the spring," shows that here 
was a spring at that time of more than ordinary importance. 
It is highly probable a knowledge of it induced their grand- 
father to locate himself near it. 

Since that period, more than two hundred years have rolled 
away, and that spring continues to send forth its gushing 
waters from a hidden fountain, whence they flow in a crystal 
stream over a bed of small pebbles to the meadows below. 
The quantity of water discharged is said to be uniform at all 
seasons of the year ; never frozen in the winter, and in the 
summer remarkably cold. This spring is on the northern 
declivity, and near the base of a high and gravelly range of 
pasture land, in which are many deep, but dry basins, whose 
formation cannot fail to attract the attention of the beholder. 
A few rods from the spring is a pleasant grove, in which the 
aged and the young, male and female, with annual recruits, 
descendants of the first settler on those grounds, and others 
connected with them, have annually assembled in September 
for several past years, unitedly to view*and review the place 
where lived their pilgrim ancestor; to mark its elevations 
and depressions on the one side, and its broad meadows on 
the other, through which passes, and for a long distance to 
be seen, that sluggish stream, known as Sudbury river, that 
is said to have but twenty-four inches fall in the same num- 
ber of miles ; they walk over the grounds he trod and culti- 
vated, conversing and contemplating upon the privations and 
hardships he endured, and the dangers to which he was ex- 
posed, and contrasting them with the comforts and safety 
they themselves have freely to enjoy ; not forgetting to visit 
" THE SPRING," and to drink of its pure water, where and of 
which he drank two centuries and more ago. These gather- 
ings are opened with songs of praise for happy meetings, 
and closed, after refreshment, with prayers that all may live 
to meet again. 

Such family meetings awaken the best feelings of the 
human heart — a grateful remembrance of the dead, a kin- 
dred sympathy among the living — and call up abundant 
matter for meditation and reflection. Those who attend 
them, and rightly improve what they see and learn, cannot 
fail to go away better men and better Christians. 

The following is a copy of an original and introductory 



RICE FAMILY. 19 

hymn, that was sung at one of those gatherings ; printed 
copies having been distributed, all joined with one heart and 
in one voice in singing : 

1. " We seek again the cherished spot. 

Where we have met before ; 
And look for those we learned to love 
In happj days of yore. 

2. We greet with joy the happy throng 

That answer to oar call ; 
But sadness fills oar hearts to find 
We do not meet them all. 

3. But list ! we seem to hear a voice 

That tells as of the dead ; 
We trust their spirits still are near, 
To guard the paths we tread. 

4. Each hill and dale, each shrub and tree, 

The purling brook and spbiko, 
All tell a tale of other days, 
And much instruction bring. 

5. 'Tis wise to listen to the past, 

Though sad the lessons given ; 
They torn us from the joys of earth 
To endless bliss in Heaven.'' 

Nov. 14, 1718, Edmund Rice and his wife Joyce, <^ for love 
and good will, convey unto our son Jason Rice, all of 
Sudbury," their homestead, viz : " half the house, half the 
barn, two-thirds of the meadow land, orchard and pastures." 
Jason was restricted from .selling in the lifetime of his father. 
This deed was witnessed by Daniel Hastings, William Rice 
and John Sherman. Dea. Edmund Rice d. Sept. 25, 1719,

Rice, [31.9] and resided at Marl, and last at Westboro', of 
which latter town he was one of the founders of its chh., 
Oct. 28, 1724, and signed the covenant next after Mr. Ebe- 
nezer Parkman, Pastor elect. His wife was dismissed from 
Marl, chh, to that of W., July 25, 1725. This is the latest 
record of them that has been found. 

The births of 5 of their chil, are oh Marlboro' records ; 
there is no record of their having any at W.

Forhusk<t Furbusi, — This name it is believed does not ap- 
pear of record in New England prior to 1681. 

In that year is found on Marlboro' recfords the name of 
Daniel Forbush and Deborah^ his wife ; previous to that 
time, and as early as 1660, as appears by Middlesex Co. 
Records, the name was ffarrabas^ and, in 1660, the name of 
Daniel ffarrabas first appears in those records. He had 2 
wives and 8 children, all therein recorded fFarrabases ; and 
himself, according to those records, d. by that name^ — ^yet, in 
1681, his name was Forbush on Marl, records — hence it 
would seem, that the name of For bush was derived from 
ffarrabas ; and so it undoubtedly was, unless this babel con- 
fusion of the name of Forbush was caused by the town clerks 
of Cambridge, Concord, and even of Marl., in writing the 
name ffarrabas, instead of Forbush, in their returns to the 
County Recorder at Cambridge ; or caused by that Recorder 
himself, in not transcribing correctly the names that were 
therein sent him; among those records, made from frequent 
returns of town clerks during twenty years or more, the name 
is uniformly ffarrabas, and the County Recorder was far 
/rom being an illiterate man. 

Our first information of Daniel ffarrabas is the following : 
" Daniel ffarrabas and Rebecca. Perriman were m. at Cam- 
bridge, March 26, 1660, and had there, 

1 Daniel, b. March 20, 1664.

where he d. by the name of Jonathan Forbes. . 

The following, probably communicated by the Rev. Ebe- 
nezer Parkman of Westboro', appeared in a Boston Newspa- 
per of March, 1768 : " Deacon Jonathan Forbes of Westboro* 
died March 24, 1768, aged 84— father of the Rev. EH of 
Brookfield. His sister, (Deacon's sister) Mrs. Rebecca Byles, 
died at Westboro', Jan. 28, 1768, aged fl4, lacking one month ; 
[prob. wife of Joseph Byles of Marl, and West., to whom, 
then of Marl., Edmund and Ruth Rice of Westboro', in 1708, 
conveyed house and land lying on the north side of Chauncy 
pond] a short time before his brother, Samuel, died in his 
92d year. A sister is living in her 82d year, and a aister of 
the half blood, in her 80th year." Of his " sister in her 82d 
year," we have no knowledge. The "sister of the half 
blood" was probably a daughter of his mother by Alexander 
Stewart.

field, June 3, 1752, m. Mary, b. Sept. 14, 1725, dau. of Rev.

1, 1775 ; installed at Gloucester, June 5, 1776, where he d. 
Dec. 14, 1804, in his 79th year. 

In the publishment of his marriage to Miss Parkman his 
name is Eli Forbush. 

Whichever this name was originally, ffarrabas or Forbush, 
the former has become extinct, and die latter is giving way 
to change. From Forbush has come Furbush<t Furbish^ For- 
bes^ Forbus, Forbes, Fobes, &c.

(28) III. THOMAS RICE, [85.2] m. Mary, and resided at 
Marl. ; " Mary, wife of Thomas Rice, d. Watertown, May 
13, 1677," whither she retired probably for safety from the In- 
dians, who broke up the settlement at Marl, in 1676, and burnt 
most of the houses in that place. His 2d wife was Anna 
Rice, [30.8] his cousin, whom he m. the LOth of the 11th 
month, 1681. By a division of Marl., 1717, his residence 
was in Westboro'; his wife Anna d. at W., May 2, 1731, in 
her 70lh year. He represented Marl, in the Gen. Court sev- 
eral years, and is said, in the Boston Gazette of Dec. 26, 
1768, to have died at the age of 94 years ; if so, he d. about 
1747. His death is not found on record. He was one of the 
original members of the chh. at W., 1724. 

The Gazette account of his age is presumed to be errone- 
ous ; it is so respecting other individuals of this family, as 
will be made to appear, when we come to speak of his broth-

ably his 4lh wife. She left in writing her Christian advice, 
apparently addressed to no one in particular, but intended for 
the spiritual good of all to whom it might come. In aid of 
her purpose, and in connection with some account of the 
• family from which she came and of the family with which 
she was connected by marriage, this opportunity is taken to 
extend a knowledge of that advice by making it public. 

" I leave these lines for you to remember me by. I would 
have you consider, how near death is come to you ; which I 
should be a means to convince you of your own frailty, the 
uncertainty of life, and certainty of death; and that our 
whole eternity of misery or of happiness depends on our 
behavior here. Therefore we should strive to make our 
calling and election sure ; and you will find that is a hard 
work, for we are dead in sin. Go not about this work in your 
own strength ; but go to God, for he must work in you both 
to will and to do, and wait on him in the way he hath ap- 
pointed. You will find your whole life is not too much for 
to do this great work in. O, don't put it off any longer, for 
woe be to that person that death finds unprepared ; for as 
death leaves us, so judgment will find us. Then remember 
the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Don't spend your time in 
frolicking, for such things don't please God ; remember God 
sees all you do. Mart Rice." 

(33) III. GERSHOM RICE [41.8] m. Elizabeth, b. Aug. 16, 
1672, dau. of Henry and Elizabeth (Haynes) Balco'm, who 
were m. at Charlestown, Aug. 12, 1666, by Lt. Edmund 
Goodnow, all of whom were afterwards of Sud. 

The marriage of Gershom Rice has not been found. He 
removed to Groton, Ct., probably before 1698, as the birth of 
his 2d child is recorded there, Oct. 28, 1698, and the births 
of four other chil. between that period and 1710. 

Nehemiah Smith of Groton, Ct. conveyed, April 28, 1704, 
lands in that town to Gershom Rice of Groton and '^ Jonas 
Rice of Sudbury, Mid. Co., Mass." Gershom and Jonas Rice 
convey lands there to said Smith and Daniel Lamb, May 19, 
1709. 

Gershom Rice was residing at Groton, April 1, 1713, as 
•^ appears by a letter of that date addressed to his wife, from 
" Elizabeth Balcom to her loving daughter, Elizabeth Rice, 
living in Groton." 

A portion of that letter was for Gershom Rice, Jr., Eliza- 
beth Rice and Matthias Rice, in which she subscribes herself 
their grandmother, Elizabeth Balcom. 

He removed from Groton to Marlboro', Mass. before Oct. 
13, 1713; a petition of that date, signed by Gershom and 
Jonas Rice of Marlboro', was presented to the General Court 
in behalf of themselves and others, expressing a desire to 
enter upon a new settlement of Worcester, from which they 



BICE FAMILY. 27 

had been driven by the (Indian) war, and praying for en- 
couragement by the court in their undertaking. 

Their request was granted, and then commenced the third 
and permanent settlement of Worcester ; two settlements of 
that place having been previously broken up by the Indians. 
Gershom Rice removed there in 1715, and had a grant of 80 
acres of land there in 1718. He has been accounted tbe 
second settler of Wor., his brother Jonas having been the first. 

At the house of Gershom Rice the first meetings were held 
for religious worship, and his was the first orchard planted in 
that settlement. Gershom and Jonas Rice were chosen by 
the proprietors of Wor. " to take care that their petition to 
the Gen. Court for incorporation as a town be seasonably en- 
tered and moved." For a long period they rendered im- 
portant services to that infant settlement, were its guardians, 
and have ever been called the " fathers op that town." 

Gershom and Elizabeth Rice are said to have had seven 
children. No record or information has been obtained of 
more than six ; nor has a record been found of the death of 
his wife. The births of his children, the eldest excepted, are 
on the records of Groton, Ct.

244. 6 Ruth, April 11, 1710, m. Adams, and removed to

Gershom Rice, as supposed, settled his estate in his life- 
time. His son, Gershom, May 30, 1737, the father then 
aged 70, gave a bond to his father to support him and his 
mother during life. 

His wife, Elizabeth, is said, in the Boston Gazette, to have 
d. at the age of " about 80." Her age would have been 80, • 
Aug. 16, 1752. His gravestone at Wor. says he d. Dec. 19, 
1768, aged 102 years — his exact age was 101 years, 7 mo. 
and 10 days. 

The following is a copy of a letter published in the Boston 
Gazette, Dec. 26, 1768, of which mention has been made in 
previous pages : 

^''Worcester, Dec. 19, 1768.— This day died here Mr. 
Gershom Rice, who*completed the age of 101 years some 
time last May, besides retaming his reason and understanding 
in a very good degree to the last. He enjoyed a long and 
almost uninterrupted state of bodily health ; was able, till 
very lately, to travel on foot a mile or two a day among his 
neighbors ; eat his food with a good appetite, and slept 
quietly at night without any attendance. 

** He was naturally of a very pleasant disposition, very

courteous in his behavior towards all, and withal grave and 
serious. Of late the decays of nature came on him fast ; 
and he went away calmly and quietly at last, expressing his 
hope and trust in his Redeemer for admission to a better 
world. 

" He was visited, about a year ago, by two gentlemen, to 
whom he gave the following account of the longevity of his 
family, which it is thought worth communicating to the public, 
viz., that his father died at the age of 70 ; his mother 84 ; 
that they had fourteen children, and that, except two that died 
in infancy, the rest lived to an advanced age — Peter, 97 ; 
Thomas, 94; Mary, 80; Nathaniel, 70; Ephraim, 71 ; James, 
72; Sarah, 80; Frances, (lately deceased,) 96; Jonas, 84; 
Grace, (now living,) 94; Elisha, near 60. The wife of the 
above Gershom, who d. ten or twelve years ago, was about 
80. They lived together in the married state between sixty 
and seventy years. They had seven children, all now living; 
some upwards of 70 years old." 

They had not seven children living, 1768. Aged descend- 
ants of the family, and living 1853, never heard of more 
than six, and one of them, Elizabeth, had been dead many 
years prior to 1768, as appears by a letter of Feb. 26, 1744, 
wherein Gershom and Matthias are named, and also " their 
sister^ Elizabeth, late of Worcester, deceased.^'* 

Gershom Rice was about 100 years old when " two gentle- 
men visited- him," and " to whom he gave an account of the 
longevity of his family." The writer of that letter does not 
say he was one of the " two ; " if he was not, he obtained what 
he related from somebody else than Mr. Rice, whose account 
given to the two gentlemen was no doubt a rerhal one, for, 
if he shew them a record of the family, they, if they took a 
copy of their names, would most likely have taken them (as 
they probably were recorded) in the order of their births. 
It does not appear that they saw, or made any record of the 
account he gave them. The Gazette account was written a 
•■ year or more after the interview with Mr. Rice, and not un- 
likely obtained by the correspondent of the Gazette from the 
memory of others. Of his brothers, we have the respective 
ages at which they died, as taken from public records, and 
have been led thus to notice the publication in the Gazette, 
merely to remove the misapprehensions of some, and furnish 
information to others. 

(34) m. JAMES RICE [42.9"| m. Sarahs b. Feb. 14, 1675, 
dau. of Daniel and Mary (Ward) Stone of Sud., and resided 
at Marl., where the births of four of his chil. are recorded. 
He was of Sud. 1706, whence he removed to Worcester 
about 1716, and d. there, Oct. 14, 1730, aged 61 yrs. 7 mo. 
and 8 days — not aged 71, as said in the Boston Gazette. He 
had 100 acres of land in Worcester granted him in 1718, 
of which town he was a proprietor.

30 BICE FAMILY. 

Wor. is not known ; he was living at W. in the time of its 
second settlement, which was broken upland a*bandoned soon 
after the commencement of Queen Anne's war, so called, 
which began in 1702. As the births of all his chil., except 
the youngest, are on Sud. records, it is probable he returned 
there when driven from Worcester. He may have resided 
for a time at Marlboro', but there is no evidence of it on the 
records of that town. 

He returned to Wor., Oct. 21, 1713, where he remained 
with his family alone in the forest and in solitude until the 
spring of 1715, when his brother Gcrshom moved in with his 
family. Upon the return of Jonas Rice, in 17 13, commenced 
the permanent settlement of Worcester ; hence he has been 
called the ^^ first settler'*'* of that town. He was truly "the 
father of the town," — a title disputed by none, but bestowed 
by all. He officiated in many of the town offices, and in 
some of them to the close of life. He was appointed, in 
1753, one of the justices of the Court of Common Pleas for 
the County of Worcester, in which office he d. on the 22d 
of Sept. in that year, aged 80 yeara 6 mo. and 14 days — not 
84 years, as said in the Boston Gazette. That appointment, 
and his entrance upon the duties of that office at the age of 
80 years, are unquestionable evidence that he then retained 
his mental and bodily faculties in a remarkable degree. He 
then exceeded, by ten years, the age at which judges in many 
of the States are required by law to retire from the bench 
by reason of presumed incapacity, arising from the infirm- 
ities of age. His gravestone at Worcester says he *' d. Sept. 
20th, (town record says Sept. 22d,) 1753, aged 81. He was 
the first settler in Worcester,' and one of the judges of the 
Inferior Court for Worcester County."

orror that haa been discovered by the will of her father, John Moore, proved 1674, 
wherein he names his dan. Mary, formerly the wife of Richard Ward, and now the 
wife of Daniel Stone, The error arose from the name of Stone bein^ converted into 
that of JJow in the probate record of William Ward's will, b^ crossmg the two first 
letters, and omitting the e final of Stone, whereby it became Hon^ and was#aken 
fbr How. 

On page 16 of that work, Daniel Stone is said to have m. Mary, dau. of WHUam 
Ward, instead of wid. of Richard Ward, Nov. 22, 1667. It is now presumed Wil- 
liam Ward did not have a dau, Mary.

(37) III. NATHANIEL MOORE, of Sud., m. Grace Rice, 
[45.12] at Sud., Feb. 10, 1701-2; and, in 1715, removed to 
Worcester, of which he was " the third settler," and deacon 
of its first church from its foundation. He had 40 acres of 
land granted to him there by the proprietors in 1718. He d. 
there, Nov. 25, 1761, aged 83 ys. 5 mo. and 4 days. The 
death of his wife is not on record. She survived him, and 
was living 19th Dec, 1768, at the age of 94. — Boston 
Gazette. 

266 1 Nathaniel, b. 1715, #n. Mehitabel, and resided at Wor- 
cester, where he d. July 19, 181), aged 96; and his wife, 
Mehitable, April 25, 1809, aged 89. This Nathaniel (says 
Lincoln^s History of Wor.) came into town at the age of 
three months, and lived respected. In noticing his death, 
the Massachusetts Spy spoke of him as " a man of exemplary 
piety and benevolence. He resided in Worcester more than 
95 years ; being a member of the third family that began the 
settlement of the town. He lived in the marriage state, with 
the same wife, nearly 69 years, but left no descendants. He 
saw this town rise from a state of uncultivated nature to its 
opulent improvement ; witnessed the ordination of five min- 
isters of the gospel within this town, four of them over the 
same society in succession ; saw three houses erected for 
public worship ; three court-houses rising on the same spot, 
one after another, for the administration of Justice ; and 
three jails, as a terror to evil doers. Thus ended the life of 
an honest man, the noblest work of God." 

His father, Nathaniel, was b. at Sud., June 21, 1678; son 
of Jacob Moore, (b. April 28, 1645,) who m. Elizabeth 
Loker, of Sud., May 29, 1667. They d. at Sud. ; Jacob, 
Feb. 17, 1690, and his widow, Elizabeth, the 14th of Dec.

1642 and 1650.

proprietor of Worcester, and living there in 1719, where he 
had thirty acres of land granted to him in 17 J 8. The birth 
of his fifth child is recorded at VVor., whence he returned to 
Sud. before 1722, where are recorded the births of his other 
children. 
He d. at Sud., intestate, 1761. His estate was appraised the 
19th of Oct., in that year, and his son Eliakim administered 
upon it. The Boston Gazette says " Elisha d. near 60 ;" 
whereas, at the time of his death, he was well advanced in 
his 82d year. He was the youngest of 13 children, of whom 
a record has been found. 12 of them lived to be married, 
and have families of children.

36 RICE FAMILY. 

Thomas Rice (family 27) and Edmund Rice were cousins, 
and, with their families, resided in wh.at is now the westerly 
part of the village of Westboro, and on the road towards 
Grafton. " On the 8th of Aug., 1704, as related by Whitney^ 
while some people were engaged in spreading flax a short 
distance from the house of Thomas Rice, sons of both fami- 
lies being with them, seven or more Indians suddenly rushed 
from the woods, where they bad concealed themselves, and 
killed Nahor, knocking him on the head. At the same time 
they seized Silas and Timothy, and two others, — Ashur 
[205.8] and Adonijah, [206.9] sons of Thomas Rice,— and 
carrieathem away to Canada." 

We have heard and we have read the thrilling stories of 
the sufferings and barbarities inflicted by the cruel and fero- 
cious savages upon the defenceless inhabitants of frontier 
settlements ; how they, treacherously and of a sudden falling 
upon them, roused them from their midnight slumbers, some- 
times in the depths of winter, by the deafening cry of the 
warhoop, and applied the lighted torch to their dwellings, 
exulting with fiend-like joy at the shrieks of the inmates ; 
how the fires of their dwellings, making glare the objects 
around them by dispelling the darkness that had enshrouded 
them, rendered distinctly visible to each other the relentless 
savages, and tfie half-naked groups of women and children, 
who, helpless and frantic with terror, saw the instruments of 
death before they felt them ; how the bloody tomahawk was 
brandished over their heads with one hand, and the other 
extended to tare away the scalp, without regard to age or sex 
of the victini, at the moment of the fatal blow ; how such 
whose lives were spared, were overwhelmed with grief, and 
sank down in despair, at the sight of mothers, brothers, and 
sisters, slain and scalped before their eyes; and themselves, 
if they then escaped death, about to be carried away from 
home and from friends, — perchance reserved to undergo, at 
an early day, lingering torments, that would terminate only 
with the sufferer's death. * 

The impressions made upon our minds by the knowledge 
of such events, are deeper and more abiding the nearer to 
us, in point of time and of locality^ they occurred. If the 
sufferers were our relatives, blood of our blood, still stronger 
are the impressions apd the interest we feel in relation to 
their sufferings and history. Of the distress and anxiety in 
the families of Thomas and Edmund Rice, we may venture 
to imagine, — we can do no more ; they themselves, and they 
alone, realized what they were. 

Picture to yourself, reader, the anguish of parents, brothers, 
and sisters, at the sight of a murdered son and brother, 
broi^ht into the house and laid before them. Two other 
sons arc missing ; killed, or in the hands of ruthless savages, 
and perhaps suffering tortures worse than death, — at length 
to be followed by death itself. The remaining inmates in 



RICE FAMILY. 37 

momentary expectation of being themselves taken captive, 
or of falling under the tomahawk of the infuriated foe, stim- 
ulated to further butchery by previous success ; no human 
aid at hand to relieve and protect them. What terror per- 
vades that dwelling! No sleep there; aching hearts and 
weeping eyes forbid it. 

After a few days have past, look in upon that family. 
Behold the parents, as they sit at the fireside, or at the table, 
viewing, in silent grief, three vacant seats in their family 
circle. Three beloved children are missing. See them look 
into their sleeping-room, whence their innocent prattle, at 
early mom, was wont to be heard. They find no relief there. 
Their beds are empty and undisturbed. They" see them not, 
nor do they hear their voices any more. 

Silas and Timothy were taken to Canada, where they had 
Indian wives, and children by them. To Silas, the Indians 
gave the name Tookanowras, Timothy was named Ought* 
sorangoughton^ and became the third of six chiefs of the 
Cognawaga tribe. In that capacity, he addressed a speech 
to Col. Burgoyne, employed in an expedition against Canada, 
in the French war of 1755, or later ; afterwards Gen. Bur- 
goyne, who surrendered himself and his army to Gren. Gates, 
at Saratoga, in the Revolutionary war. 

" Timothy visited Westboro', Sept., 1740, with an inter- 
preter, — ^himself having lost his mother tongue, — ^and viewed 
the place, &c., where he was captured ; of which he had a 
clear remembrance, together with the circumstances under 
which he was taken ; as he also had of several persons then 
living.^^ Nothing said or done could induce him to remain 
at Westboro'. He returned to Canada, where he and his 
brother Silas were living in the summer of 1790. 

From a history of the Williams Family, by Dr. Stephen 
W. Williams, and published, 1847, we extract the follow- 
ing, which may be interesting to the descendants of Marlboro^ 
(then including Westboro') Rice families, that had children 
carried into captivity : 

Feb. 29, 1704 the town of Deerfield, Mass, was attacked 
and destroyed by the French and Indians — many of the in- 
habitants killed, 112 taken captive, and marched for Canada. 

Of the former were two children of the Rev. John Wil- 
liams, the first minister of that town ; of the latter were the 
Rev. Mr. Williams himself and Eunice (Mather) Williams, 
his wife, and all their surviving children, save one. Mrs. 
Williams was tomahawked and killed on the Vnarch. Of 
their children taken to Canada was Eunice^ born Sept. 16, 
1696, and d. in Canada, 1786, " aged 90." 

She m. John De Rogers, an Indian, by whom she had three 
children, viz. : 

1 John, who was killed at Lake George in 1758. 

2 Sarah, who m. at Cognawaga, 1758, an Englishman by 

the name of Williams, a physician.

(51) III. PALMER GOULDING, (probably son of Peter Goul- 
ding of Boston, who was a proprietor of Worcester, and had 
a grant of 50 acres of land there in 1718,) m. Abigail Rice 
at Concord, Dec. 4, 1722. She was not Abigail Rice, [64.9] 
but Abigail Rice of another race ; yet, as one or more of her 
chil. and several of those that descended from them inter- 
married with the descendants of Edmund Rice, it may not be 
amiss to give some account of her pedigree in this place, aqd 
also of such of the children of Mr. Goulding and herself as 
have come to our knowledge ; inasmuch as we shall have 
. occasion to refer to them in the subsequent pages of this 
work. She was the dau. of Timothy JRice, (whose father, 
Richard Rice of Cambridge and Concord, d. June 9th, 1709, 
aged 100 years,) and Abigail Marrett, who were' m. 27th of 
April, 1687 ; b. Aug. 16, 1666, dau. of John and Abigail 
(Richardson) Marrett of Cam., who were m. June 20, 1654 ; 
son of Thomas Marrett, who d. 30th of 4th mo., 1664, and 
his wife Susannah, who d. 23d of 12lh mo., 1664. 

Her father, Timothy Rice, resided at Concord. An inven- 
tory of his estate was taken, Sept. 12, 1692; ^110.19.6. 
His Widow Abigail, Admx. 

Amos Marrett, brother of the wid., became guardian of 
her dau., Abigail Rice, aged about 12 years, Aug. 26, 1701. 
She m. Palmer Goulding, as above stated. They removed 
to thai part of Worcester now Holden, and d. there ; their 
gravestones were to be seen at Worcester a few years ago, 
in the burying ground near the common; from them we 
learn, that " Capt. Palmer Goulding, sen. died at Holden, 
Feb. 11, 1770, aged 75," and that " he commanded a com- 
pany at the reduction of Louisburg, June 17, 1745." " Ab-

(59) III. PHINEAS RICE [75.10] m. Elizabeth Willard, Oct. 
2, 1707, and resided about 18 years at Sud., where all his 
chil. were b. He removed thence to Stow, and represented 
that town in the General Court. He was a proprietor of 
Grafton, and removed there in its early settlement, and 
resided in that part of it now Millbury, and on the spot occu- 
pied by his descendants to the present time. 

The following notice of him appeared in a Boston news- 
paper a few days after his death : 

" Grafton^ Sept. 5, 1768.— Mr. Phineas Rice d. yesterday 
morning, of rose cancer, aged 86. It was upon his face, and, 
when it first appeared, was a small red spot, but grew to the 



BICE FAMILY. 43 

size of a large hen's egg, and eventually wholly prevented 
his taking any nourishment. He was a nrjember of the church, 
formerly of Stow, and many years representative from that 
town. He lived 50 years with his wife. She died March 9, 
1761. He has left, at Sudbury, a brother in his 90th year, 
whose lady, near the same age, survives. His posterity is 
not very numerous. 

" He was a gentleman of an enlarged soul, bright parts, 
a penetrating wit, tenacious memory, well acquainted both 
with men and books. Had he been favored with the ad- 
vantage^f a liberal education, perhaps his superior had 
scarce been found in New England. 

" His vigor of body and powers of mind were remarkable 
in his advanced years, and his reason continued to the last.'' 

Mr. Rice was one of the subscribers to " Prince's Chro- 
nology," a work now scarce, and increasing in value with • 
lapse of time. It will be seen that the brother he left at

At the ordination of Mr. Frink the Rev. Mr. Breck of Marl, 
with his delegate, Dea. Edward Rice, attended and took part 
in the services on that occasion. Edward Rice was in the 
8ervi(;e, 1724, in Capt. Samuel Wright's company ; and after 
his return held offices in the town, was captain in the militia, 
and a useful member in the. chh. He d. at R., Sept. 27, 
1756, in his 67th year, and his wid. Rachel, of small pox, 
Jan. 1, 1760. No record of their chil. has been found at 
Sud., Marl., Worcester, or Rutland. The names of six of 
them have been obtained from some of his aged descendants, 
an J are thus rescued from the verge of oblivion. They had 
others, but their names are buried with them. Those here 
named may not be arranged in the order of their births.

(81) IV. MOSES RICE [163.9] m. Sarah King at Sud., Nov. 
16, 1719, and removed to Worcester about 1722, and opened 
a public house on the site of one afterwards kept by Capt. 
Ephraim Mower, and on which was subsequently erected the 
'* United States Hotel'' 

He was posted at Rutland on garrison duty, with others 
from Worcester, 1724, under the command of Capt. Samuel 
Wright of Rutland. 

He commanded a company of cavalry while he resided at 
Worcester, and removed to Rutland, where he appeared of 
record in 1742. At a town meeting there on the 9th of May 
in that year, Eleazer Ball, Capt. Moses Rice and Daniel 
Estabrook were chosen to provide for the ordination of Mr. 
Joseph Buckminster in that town on the 15th of Sept. follow- 
ing. He conveyed to James Heaton of Rutland, who m. his 
dau., " a saw mill at Longmeadow Falls" in that town on the 
18th of April, 1737 ; he was then of Worcester, with the title 
of captain. He purchased 2200 acres of land in the town- 
ship of Charlemont, April 23, 1743, and removed to that 
place ; the time we do not learn. 

He is said to have been its first town clerk ; but as that 
township was not incorporated till 1765, ten years after his 
death, it is not unlikely he was the Proprietors' Clerk. 



BICE FAMILY. 51 

Being a frontier settlement it was exposed during the 
French and Indian wars, and suffered by the ravages of the 
enemy. June 11, 1755, while Capt. Rice was in his field 
ploughing among corn, the Indians, lying in ambush, shot 
him, and at the same time shot and killed outright, Phineas 
Arms, aged 24, who was at work in the field at that time. 

The horse at the plough, being frightened, started sudden- 
ly and threw off his rider, Asa Rice, a gr. son of Capt. Moses 
Rice, aged about 8 years, whom the Indians caught up and 
carried to Canada. Capt. Rice being sorely wounded, and 
unable to walk, was taken some distance into the adjoining 
woods, where he was tomahawked and scalped. Such was 
his tragical end; being then in the 61st year of his age, and 
the chief man of the township for counsel in peace and in 
war. 

Having previously been a prominent man in three towns, 
two of them old settlements, before he removed to Charle- 
mont, he was there looked upon and looked up lo^ as the 
head and father of that infant plantation, of which he was 
the chief promoter, and one of its first settlers. He had col- 
lected a great amount of historical matter, comprising an 
account of many interesting events of which he had been a 
witness, and in some of which he had borne a conspicuous, 
and in others, a hazardous part. 

His manuscripts were destroyed by fire ; whereby his de- 
scendants, for whose information he had prepared them, 
sustained, and not they alone, but the public at large, an 
irreparable loss, as they contained historical information of 
men, and of matters and things, relating not only to Charle- 
mont, but to his native town, and othei-s in which he had 
lived. The eldest of his chil. was b. at Sud., the others at 
Wor. His wid. Sarah, d. about 1788, at the residence of her 
son, Aaron, with whom she resided.

ham. " Aaron Brigh&m and Betsy Rice m. Sept. 28, 1785^' 
— Marl, Rec. Edward Bams m. Submit For bush at Marl., 
Jan. 23, 1765. Their dau. is not called Bams in the record 
of her marriage. It is prol^able the testator interpolated the 
name of Rice in speaking of her in his will, and that she was 
..expected to take, or at least did take that name in consequence 
of the bequest he made to her, and out of regard to him 
therefor. The heirs by will were Lydia How, David Wy- 
man, Submit Barns and Betty Rice Barns. 

Heirs at law were Rachel Howe, family (101) ; Damaris 
Brigham, family (103) ; Dr. Ebenezer Rice [618.4], and his 
sister, Grace Howe ; Hazadiah (Rice) [609.2] Felton, wife 
of Jacob, and her sisters, Deborah Howe, Lydia, wife of 
Noah Beaman, and Mary Howe. Testimony — " he d. the 
Lord's day, Aug. 27, 1775." " Mrs. Lydia How " claimed 
dower as the widow of the deceased. Resisted, there having 
been no marriage, or if one, not legal, &c. " The terms in 
which he mentioned her in the will implied it, and that he was 
not of sound mind," &c. " The marriage of Mrs. Lydia was 
considered legal, and will approved."

We have not been able to find that Thomas Rice had a 
family or had been m. previous to 1722. At that time his 
age was about 40, and that of Mary Oakes about 41. She 
was the 2d wife and widow of Nathaniel Oakes of Weslboro', 
and b. 1682, dau. of Adam Holloway and his wife Hannah 
Farrar, whom he m. March 5, 1681 ; widow of Jacob Farrar, 
who m. her in 1668, and was killed by the Indians at Lan- 
caster, 1675; dau. of George and Mary Haywood of Con- 
cord, and b. 1646. 

There were families by the name of Oak, Oake, Oakes 
early in Boston, and before 1658 in Maiden, but none by the 
name of Nathaniel has been found among them. The Rev. 
Dr. Allen, in his History of North bo ro', page 152, Worces- 
ter Magazine, 1826, says this " Nathaniel Oaks came from 
England.^' Neither his marriage or death appears on record.

68 BICE FAMILY. 

Isaac Mixer, who, aged 31, and his wife Sarah, aged 33, and 
son I&aac, aged 4 years, embarked at Ipswich, Eng., April 
10, 1634, in the Elizabeth, William Andrews, master, for 
New Eng., and settled at Watertown, and d. 1655, aged 
about 52 ; his wid., Sarah, d. 1681, probably aged about 80. 
[See Bond^ page 367.] 

The 2d wife of Isaac Rice was Thankful, wid. of Ezra 
Graves, whom he m. April 26, 1769, and d. Oct. 20, 1793, 
in his 83d year. His wife, Thankful, probably not then 
living. 

754. 1 Isaac, April 9, 1742, d. young.

757. 4 Abigail, April 13, 1748, m. David Rice, [1023.51. See 

family (369). 

758. 5 Isaac, Nov. 21, 1749, m. Mary Johnson. (284) 

Isaac Rice left a will, duly executed, bearing date July 1, 
1784, which was not presented for probate, but is yet pre- 
served in perfect condition. In that he provided bountifully 
for his wife Thankful ; speaks of an agreement between 
himself and her, before marriage, touching the property of 
each other, &c. Gave to dau. Anna Livermore ; to the chil. 
of dau. Abigail, late wife of David Rice, — Joseph, the eldest, 
and five others, not named ; all the residue to son Isaac. 

Will of Thankful Rice, Oct. 15, 1790, (there is some 
doubt about its being 1790,) was lodged in the Probate Office 
within four months after the decease of her husband. She 
gave " to husband, Isaac Rice, Sen., all demands by virtue of 
a covenant between him and Dr. Josiah Starr, deceased, and 
me, before marriage, when I was Thankful Graves, wid. of 
Ezra Graves ;" " to Isaac Rice, Jr., son of my husband.'* 
Witnesses, Luther Rice and Ezekiel Rice. She had, by 
virtue of that covenant, the management and disposal of her 
separate property during coverture, and did take bonds, pay- 
able to herself, for the payment of money during that time. 

No action appears to have been had upon her will in 
Probate Court. She is supposed to have d. a few years 
previous to her husband ; and, being privy to the ample pro- 
vision he had made for her in his will, if she survived him, 
made her own will, and unconditionally gave to him ^' alt 
demands,'' and to his son, Isaac, all her estate. He was 
appointed executor of his father's will, and specially enjoined 
therein to perform all the articles therein set forth, to be 
done by him as executor for his step-mother, " if he would 
testify his respect for his aged parent, when deceased." 

How much of that he manifested towards them in their 
life-time, and with what kindness he attended upon them in 
their old age, may be inferred from her will giving to him all 
her estate ; although she knew, if given to her husband, it 
would, by his will, descend to the son. It was, therefore, to 
bim something more than a simple bequest of property ; it 



RICE FAMILY. 69 

was a testimonial of her regard for him, as being a kind and 
dutiful son, cheerfully giving, in turn, to aged parents, what 
they had, in his infancy, bestowed on him ; thus adopting 
him, with all the regard and tenderness of a mother for her 
own son. 

Her will was lodged in the Probate Office, as evidence of 
her release of all demands upon the estate of her husband, 
that she or her heirs might otherwise have had " by virtue of 
the covenant," &c. She was m. to Ezra Graves, June 5, 
1766; then being Thankful Bigelow, of Weston, wid. of 
Joseph Bigelow, who m. her by her family name, Thankful

The 2d wife of Eleazer Rice was Mehitabel; she was 
from the chh. in Beverly to that in Westboro', April 11, 
1749. 

He is called of Shrewsbury in his will, 1767. He was at 
Shrews., 1729, and in possession of house lot No. 24, in that 
year, and of house lot 31, in 1730. He was a highway sur- 
veyor in Shrews., 1760, and called himself of that town in 
1767 ; hence it is probable, that, notwithstanding he and his 
wives were ad. to the chh. at Westboro', and had the births 
of their chil. recorded there, he, with his family, resided 
in Shrews., ajid part of the time on the place in the south- 
west part of the town, which Mr. Elijah Rice occupied many 
years, and until his death, 1827.

A letter appeared in a Boston newspaper early in July, 
1775, of which the following is a copy, and is introduced 
here to show the fervor and the spirit of the times at that 
period. 

The battle of Bunker Hill was fought only a few days 
previous to the event that gave rise to that letter. The blow 
had been struck ; thenceforward, any and every incident, 
through which patriotism could manifest itself, was made 
available to swell the tide of popular resistance to British 
aggression.

" The wife of Jabez Rice, Jr. was delivered of two children 
last week — they were baptized the next Sabbath John Han- 
cock and DoBOTHY Quincy!'^ 

1775 ! — there is some'thing spirit-stirring, something elec- 
trifying in that expression — when we hear it mentioned, no 
matter on what account, an unfading recollection of histori- 
cal 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.

Shattuck of Worcester, and resided at West., where she d. 
Nov. 1761. His 2d wife was Prudence Hardy,, whom he m. 

* She was the dau. of Digory Serjent (so he wrote his name) of Worcester, who 
probably was a native of Maiden. He was a resident of Boston, 1677, and, accord- 
ing to the history of Worcester by William Lincoln, Esq., was one of those who 
began the second settlement of Wor., and was at the laying out of some lands there 
in 1685. The next we learn of him is from his will. "March the 17th day, 1696, 
the last will and testament of Digory Serjent." " I, Digory Serjent, being in my 
health and strength, and in my perfect memory, blessed be the Lord for it, these 
few lines may satisfy whom it may concern that I, Digory Serjent, do freely give 
nnto my daughter, Martha Serjent, my house and land, with all the rights and 
privileges thereto belonging. This house and four score acre lot of land lieth 
within the township of Worcester. I likewise do give unto her all my goods ; one 
flock bed and bolster, with one rug and two blankets and two coverlets, six froes, 
one broad ax and one falling ax and one hand saw, one frying pan, one chave, one 
drawing knife, one trunk and sermon book, that is at Mrs. Mary Mason's, widow, 
of Boston, with one pewter pint pot, one washing tub, one cow and calf, one mare, 
throe iron wedges, two beettle rings. And if, in case the Lord should see good to 
tftke away the said Digory Serjent by death, then I, the said Digory Sericnt, do 
leave these things above iRTittcn unto George Parmeijter of Sudbury, to be aisposed 
of as he shall see ^ood to bring up the said Digory Serjent's child ; and if, in case 
the child should die likewise, then I do freely give my house and land, with all the 
goods above mentioned, unto George Parmenter forever, and to his heirs, to look 
after these things and to dispose of them as he shall see cause. In witness whereof, 
I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and year above named. There is one 
gun too. Digory Serjent and seal. Witnessed by John Keyes and John Witherby. 
They were residing at Marl, at the date of Senent's will. Keyes had a few days 

Srevious m. Mary Eamcs, and was afterwards or Shrewsbury — ^ihe " famous Major 
ohn Keyes." John Witherby or Wetherby at that time had a family of chil. at 
Marl. He m. Mary Howe of Sud., 1672. Serjcnt's will was probably executed at 
Marl. The mother of his child, Martha, had probably deceased, and she was then 
his only child. Subsequently he m. again, but that he m. a sister or a dau. of 
George Parmenter of Sudbury is very uncertain, and not reconcilable with what is 
found on Sud. records. Whoever were his wives has no bearing on his subsequent 
history and tragical fate in 1703, which is thus related in the history of Worcester: 
"Long after the planters had fled from the perils of the conflict that raged around 
them, Serjent remained, with his wife and children, the solitary occupants of the 
town — ^resisting all importunities to seek safety by desertion. During the summer 
of 1702, his residence was not molested; as winter approached, t&e committee,

(243) V. ADONIJAH RICE [640.8] m. Hannah, July 3, 1751, 
b, 1733, dau. of David and Sarah Crosby of Shrewsbury, and 
resided at Westboro', from which town he was a soldier in 
Capt. B. Fay's company, 1757, and received a bounty of 
<£10 ; also in the war of the Revolution, and belonged to 
Barns' company, 15th regiment, and on the military rolls 

alarmed by his situation on the frontier of danger, sent messengers to advise his 
removal to a place of security. As their admonitions were disregarded, they at 
length dispatched an armed K>rce of twelve men, under Capt. Howe of Marl., to 
compel a compliance with the order. At the close of the day, the party arrived at 
a vacant garrison house, nearly two miles from Serjent's, and halted for the night, 
which grew dark with storm "and snow. In the mominff they went onward, and 
reached the house of Serjent They found the door broken down, the owner 
stretched in blood on the floor, and the dwelling desolate. The prints of many 
moccosons leading westward indicated the course of the murderers' flight. They 
pursued the trail some distance, when they returned and buried Seijcnt at the foot 
of an oak, and returned to the house where they had encamped the night previous. 

After the war ended, the Indians revisited Worcester, and declared that six of 
them had entered that house for shelter from the storm, when they discovered Ae 
approach of the English too late to escape, and secreted themselves in the cellar. 
The soldiers, in the meantime, spread tlieir blankets and laid themselves down, — 
some of them over the trap-door, — thus unknowingly holding their enemy in con- 
finement until their morning march gave them an opportunity for escape. 

It was soon found that Scijcnt's children were in Canada. On the release of the 
eldest (Martha), she related the particulars of the fearful catastrophe of which she 
was a witness. When the Indians surrounded his house, her father seized his gun 
to defend himself and family. He was fired upon and fell ; the Indians rushed in, 
dispatched him, and tore the scalp from his head. They seized the mother and her 
children — Martha^ John, Danid, Thomas and Alary — and commenced a rapid retreat. 
The wife of Serjent, fainting with grief and fear, impeded their flight, and, while 
ascending the hills of Tatnuch, in the north-westerly part of Worcester, a chief 
stent out of the file, and, looking around as if for game, excited no alarm in his 
sinking captive ; when she had passed by, one blow of his tomahawk relieved them 
from me obstruction of their march. 

The children were carried to Canada, and remained there a number of years. 
Martha was redeemed earlier than her brothers. She married Daniel Shattack Cat 
Marlboro', Sept. 6, 1719), and returned to dwell on the spot so fatal to her family, 
as may be inferred from order to the commissioners appointed 1721, to make par- 
tition of the inherited lands in Worcester. "If D. Shattnck's hovel made of the 
stuff of said deceased's old house needs consideration, his brotiber (in-law) John must

(244) V. CHARLES RICE [641.9] of Westboro' went to 
Brookfield, m. Leah Jennings of "B., Jan. 6, 1758, and d. 
about the 14th of March following, aged 27. He was a 
soldier from W. in John Taplin's company, six months in 
1755, and also from W. in 1757, in Capt. Fay's company. 

1478. 1 Charles, May 7, 1758, posthumous. 

His widow, Leah, settled his estate. Inventory, ^425, 
Dec. 29, 1758. One item of which was 100 acres of land 
in Brookfield, held by deed from his brother Elijah Rice, 
dated Feb. 16, 1754. 

allow for it, and also for any other labor the said Daniel has done on the mother lot. It 
proves equal that he shoafd have, for this year, liberty to enjoy the fruits of his own 
labor. So, do what is right, as you must be sworn. Francis Foxcroft, Judge Pro- 
bate, Middlesex." 

Of the children, Danid and Mary chose to remain with the Indians, and adopted 
their habits ; Thomas was at Boston, 1715 ; John had returned, and appears to have 
been on the homestead in 1721 and in 1723, — ^he and Daniel Shattuck were soldiers 
in Kellogg's company from Worcester. George Farmentcr settled Seijent's estate, 
and returned an inventory of effects." 

Sarah Shattuck, wife of Elijah Kice, was b. about 1724, and not far from 37 
years of age when she died. The information related by our ancestors of their suf- 
Kiings from Indian hostilities, and in relating which they gave the particulars not 
found in history, but of absorbing interest, that occupied many an evening at the 
winter fireside, when listening children and grandchildren crowded around with open 
ears, and with open mouths too, that nothing might be lost, will never fail to excite 
the liveliest emotions in the hearts of their descendants, however remote they may 
be in locidity or descent, — sympathy is the child of affliction, and if one of our rela- 
tives suffer, all the members suffer with him. Sarah Shattuck learned the suffer- 
ings of her grandparents and their children from her mother. Her children's 
children and grandchildren yet retain, and relate their recollections of her fireside 
stories, as they have come down from those that heard i\yaxi from her lips, and will 
transmit them to futuro generations, that they also may know something of the trials 
of their ancestors in the early settlement of New Eiu^land, when it was for the most 
part a wilderness, the abode of savages and beasts of prey. 

Her mother told her that the Indians required her to carry her iniant sister for 
two days on their march, when, she becoming troublesome, they took her from her 
arms, and withdrew from her sight ; she never saw her again, — and that, while in 
Ganaida, where she was detained seven years, she was compelled to see many 
prisoners burnt at the stake, the Indians dancing around and making the forests ring 
witii their war-hoop, and telling her that on such a night they should have another 
dance, when she lomd be the victim.

Widow Ruth declined administering, and William Rice, 
Esq. of Sud. appointed AdmV. Inventory, #3612.87, Jan. 
16, 1802. 

The administrator made a journey to Cambridge in 1805, 
by order of the Supreme Court, to get Mr. Webber (Professor 
of Mathematics in Harvard University) to calculate the prob- 
able continuance of the life of Micah Rice, (an insane brother 
of the deceased.) We know not the period to which that 
calculation extended, but he lived seven years after it was 
made, and d. Aug. 15, 1812, in his 70th year. 

The estate of Reuben Rice was distributed, by order of 
court, June 23, 1808, to the children above named, William 
excepted, who was probably not then living, 

(266) V. AMOS RICE [720.1] m. Martha Hagar at Weston, 
May 28, 1750; dau. of John (b. 1697) and Sarah Hagar; 
son of William (b. 1658, d. 1731) and Sarah (Benjamin) 
Hagar ; son of William (d. 1684) and Mary (Bemis) Hagar, 
the two last of Watertown. He was called of " Nitchewoag" 
(Petersham) in the record of his marriage at Weston. 
" Amos Rice and wife Martha and children,

"Ctfti/ioiw" were common at that period, and probably 
were equivalent to the " warning out of town " of incomers 
by the constable, which by law exempted the town from lia- 
bility for the future support of such persons in case they be- 
came 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 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 sit- 
down to abide in one of our towns, was warned, " by author- 
ity," 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 knpws 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, "/or this is no great of a 
place after all ! " 

There was an Amos Rice and a Silas Rice living at Peters-

(275) V. JOSIAH RICE [737.4] m. Sybil Battle of Dedham at 
Sud., April 1, 1758, and was residing at Sud. in 1772. 
There is no record of him there after that period. His 
descendants at Leverett communicate the names of nine 
chil. ; two with their births, and seven without, as chil. of 
Josiah and Sybil (Battle) Rice, viz. : — 

1615. 1 Sybil, at Sud., 1760, never married.

other child found on Sud. records is " Sarah ; b. March 25, 
1772," by a 2d wife, Elizabeth, " and bap. April 19, 1772, 
dau. of Josiah and Betsy Rice." No record has been found 
of the death of his wife, Sybil ; or of his 2d marriage. His 
descendants say nothing of his having a 2d wife, nor do they 
name his dau. Sarah ; a knowledge of the births of his chil- 
dren, subsequent to Josiah, might remove existing doubts.

the Indians in New England,'^ written by him in Dec. 1674, 
and published in Mass. Hist Col. I., 192 : " This village ly- 
eth about three miles south of the new roadway that leadeth 
from Boston to Connecticut ; about 18 miles, west southerly, 
from Marlboro', and from Boston about 44 miles. It consists 
of about 20 families, hath about one hundred souls therein. 



BICE FAMILY. 205 

This village is situated upon a fertile hill, and is denominated 
(Pakachoag) from a delicate spring of water that is there.'^ 
This homestead has been in the family since the resettlement 
of Worcester in 1715. 

The longevity that prevailed in this branch of the family 
for several previous generations, and heretofore attracted 
public notice, has prevailed to an unusual degree in the sixth 
generation.*

* Allen Rice & Co., in 1831, began manofactdring salt in Sergeant Township, 
McKean Co., Penn. 

In Sept. 1782, 100 picked warriors from a party of 300, made an assault on Rice's 
fort, situated on Buffalo Creek, Washington Co.» Penn., about 12 miles from its 
junction with the Ohio River, which had only six men to defend it, two of whom 
were Danid Rice and Abraham Rice. The fire of the Indians was briskly returned ; 
at intervals they called out to the defenders of the fort, " Give up, give up— too 
many Indian — Indian too big — ^no kill." 

Tfcey were answered with defiance, " Come on, you cowards, we are ready for 
yon. Show us your yellow hides and we will make holes in them for you." After 
four hours' 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 b<2lies. Abraham Rice was wounded in the arm and thigh, but had no bones 
broken ; only one man of the six was killed. For their personal bravery and sao- 
cessful defence of that fort, in which were many women and children, " the names 
of this Spartan band have been enrolled on the list of heroes of our early times." — 
See Historical Collections of Pennsylvania, by Sherman Day, page 662. 

We have reason to suppose that Daniel Rice and Abraham Rice were descendants 
of Edmund Riob.

Who possess those relics now 7 They are worth more than

His gr. gr. father was a just judge, and weighed out to every 
one his portion with an even beam. The steelyards and his 
cane, that supported him on his way to and from the temple 
of justice, are worthy relics, and would be choice emblems 
for his family coat of arms, — the one, ah emblem of the com- 
munity, supporting him in the discharge of his official duties; 
the other, of himself, on the seat of justice.

tore of the name of Rice — assigning as reason for it, that he 
" discovered a number of yeara ago, that the Rice family 
were becoming very extensive, and thought if they should 
continue to increase as they had for a few yeare, they would 
soon constitute the greater portion of the inhabitants of the 
United States — therefore he made a variation in the name, 
but not intending to change the relationship at all." For the 
like reason his name^ it will be seen, may, sooner or later, 
need a variation, if his example shall be carried out by his 
descendants according to copy.

(650) VI. ISAAC DAVIS, Jr., m. Polly Rice, [1977.8] both of 
Northboro', Dec. 2, 1801, and removed to Trenton, Me. He 
returned with his family to North bo ro', in 1819, where he 
now resides, and where his wife, Polly, d. March 14, 1852, 
aged 70. His parents were Dea. Isaac (b. 1749, m. 1772, d. 
1826) and Anna (Brigham) Davis of Northboro' ; son of 
Simon (d. 1754) and Hannah Davis; son of Simon (b. 1683, 
d. 1763) and Dorothy Davis of Rutland and Holden ; son of 
Samuel (d. 1741) and Mary (Mead) Davis of Concord ; son 
of Dolor Davis, who was of Cambridge 1634, of Barnstable 
1640, of Concord 1660, and d. at Barnstable 1673. Farmer 
says his wife was Margery Willard, sister of Major Simon 
Willard. No record has been found of the births of his sons, 
John, Simon and Samuel ; two of them, if not all, were b. 
before their father came to America ; at least, before 1634, 
when he first appeared at Cam., as we should judge from a 
military roll of 60 or more persons belonging to Barnstable, 
able to bear arms, 1643 — among their names are ^^Dohr 
Davis and sons*'* — all the persons are enrolled by name, ex- 
cepting the sons of Dolor Davis.

(652) VI. SETH RICE [1979.10] of Northboro', m. Alice 
Brigham, April 22, 1812, and some little time afterwards, as 
is said, made a journey to Canada and never was heard of 
more. His wife (b. 1787) was dau. of Winslow (b. 1756, m. 
1781, d. 1837) and Alice (Cushing) Brigham of Northboro'; 
son of Col. Levi (b. 1717, m. 1745, d. 1787) and Susanna 
(Grout) Brigham ; son of David (b. 1678, m. 2d time, 1709) 
and his 2d wife, wid. Mary Newton, (maiden name, Leonard,) 
of Marl.; son of Thomas (b. 1641, d. 1717) and Mary (Rice) 
Brigham of M.; son of Thomas (Will dated 7 (10) 1653, d. 
Cambridge, 8 (10) 1653) and Mercie (Hurd) Brigham — his 
wid. became the 2d wife of Edmund Rice, Sen., and next 
the 2d wife of Wm. Hunt of Marl, and survived him. Alice 
Cushing (b. 1757) was dau. of Col. Job and Lucy (Stone) 
Cushing. See family (809.) 

(653) VI. JOSIAH RICE [1996.1] m. Hannah Marble, "both 
of Northboro'," at Bolton, March 22, 1774 ; he was styled 
/tin., in the record of his marriage ; we cannot trace him 
further. 

(654) VI. ELISHA RICE [1999.4] of Wesiboro', m. Ruth 
Kice. Her pedigree is somewhat doubtful ; we think, after a 
careful examination, that she was Ruth Rice, [1445.10.] 
They were m. at Northboro', where the record is thus — 
" Elisha Rice of Westboro' and Ruth Rice were m. April 4, 
1782." His 2d marriage is recorded at Westboro' — " Elisha 
Rice and Temperance Wyatt, both of Westboro', were m. 
Jan. 4, 1785." She d. at Westboro', Aug. 1810; and he, in 
1811, in his 56th year — without issue. 

He was a soldier of the Revolution and engaged in several 
sanguinary battles ; in one of which he was wounded in the 
head, and from his shattered skull thirteen pieces of bone 
were extracted that are yet preserved as mementoes of his 
daring courage and of his sufferings, and of the righteous 
cause in which he perilled his life. His revolutionary services, 
as summed up on the Military Rolls, were " 42 months, 5 
days, in the Light Infantry." There is no monument at 
Westboro', to murk the resting place of this brave man and 
patriot soldier ; his services have been forgotten, the fruits of 
them are seen and enjoyed. He sleeps, unconscious of neg- 
lect and of the harvest reaped from labor in part by him be- 
stowed ; of the extent of his country, now teeming with eight- 
fold millions, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, jealous of its 
rights, and, as in his day^ vindicating them with success. 

His will, Jan. 7, 1807, proved July 2, 1811, gave to wife 
Temperance ; to brothers Josiah and Joseph, and to sister 
Hepzibah Hemenway. Inventory, $4512.78.

riman the 8th of April in that year; and d. there April 7, 1659. His descendants 
remain, but are not numerous ; few, comparatively, now reside in Mass. His widow 
was adm. to Cambridge chh., Oct. 1661, and her children, Isaac and Jacob Amsden 
were bap. in Not. following. 

Her 2d husband was Bichard Cutter of Cam., who m. her the 14th 4>f Feb. 1663,

BAecca Perriman, first wife of Daniel ffarrabas, ancestor of the Forbnsh and Forbes

ronth was taken from her in earljr life, leaving a family of young children to her 
care and guidance, — of whom, it will be seen, the sons on whom a imdow*$ hopes so 
fondly rest for aid and comfort in her declining years, were abo taken away by 
death in early manhood, beloved and esteemed, " haying never ^ven their mother 
caase for grief." A fall reliance on Divine Providence asia sostamed her in all her 
trials.

OLD AND NEW STYLE. 



Style in chronology is the method of computing time according to the Julian and 
Gregorian calendars. 

By the Jnlian, in the year 325, the time intervening between a Temal eqninox 
and the next succeeding one constitnted a year of 365 days, 6 hoars ; it began on 
the 25th of March, and contained a fraction more than a tropical year, and in 1582 
those fractions amounted to 10 days. 

Pope GreffOiy corrected that calendar in 1 582. From that year he abated 10 days, 
and made the year of such length as to conform, in the future, to the regularity of 
the seasons, and begin on the first of January—that is the Gregorian calendar. It 
was readily adopted in most countries ; but in England and her Colonies, while par^ 
tially conformed to by appending the new style to the old, as in double dating, it 
was not adopted till 1752. Jan. 10, 1676-7, is new style; in the absence of the 7, 
it IB old style. The early settlers of New England more frequently used numerals 
only in dating,~fbr May 3, 1643, they wrote 3 (3) 1 643, and read it third of the third 
month, 1643. Double dating ceased in 1752. The difilerence between old and new 
style was 11 days till the end of the year l800--6ince that time it is 12 days. 

Old style is brought into new style by adding 10 days to any date between 1582 
and 1701, and one day more to any date between 1700 and Sept 2, 1752. March 
22, 1617, if April 1, 1617, new style.

INDEX TO NAMES. 



Parknts bearing the name of Riet are indexed alphabetically, bv the initia/» of their 
respective paternal Christian names, and the corresponainff numbers (fieures in circamflez) 
by which the several families in this work are consecative^ enrolled. By recurring to that 
number on the left side of the page, and opposite the name of the paternal head, a detailed 
account of his family may be found 

Others (male) of that name, who have intermarried, but whose descendants are not 
traced, are severallv indexed by the tm<ia/« of their Christian names, in like order as the 
preceding, but by tne pages only whereon their names and those of their wives may be 
lound. 

The family names of those who have intermarried with females of the Rice family, and 
the descendants of those females, so far as traced, as als:D those who have intermarried, bat 
have not descendants traced, are indexed by their surnames f and in all other respects by 
the number of the family, or by pages, as those of the name of Rice. 

Exception to the foregoing Explanation. 

The individuals composing heads of families named in Ap|$endix, Nos. 1, S and 3, are 
indexed by ^N^c« only. Their names are indexed at the close of the several alphabetical 



lists of Ck 



I and sttrnames to which they respectively belong.
