EDMUND RICE'S HOMESTEAD 
At Sudbury, now Waylaiul, Mass., 16.39, our first aiu-estoi' in this fouiitry. 



INTRODUCTION. 

CONWAY, MASS. 

Prior to the Revolution that section of Deerfield known, as 
the "Southwest," and subsequently as Conway, seems to have had 
great attractions for our ancestors and others who flocked thither 
from Worcester, Barre, Grafton, Rutland, Leicester and other 
parts of Massachusetts, and there amid primeval forest and 
savage Indian took up their abode, reclaimed the soil, erected 
homes, carried on their trades and industries, and in five short 
years had the settlement set ot^' from Deerfield and incorporated as 
a separate and distinct township. 

Previous to 1762 Conway was a vast wilderness without a 
single white inhabitant. It is said, however, that Timothy Rice, 
of Barre, came to this section of Deerfield as early as 1748, and 
that he was followed by Jonas Rice, of Barre, after 1756, and 
then by Cyrus Rice of the same town in 1762, followed by other 
branches of the family from Westboro, Worcester and other parts 
of Massachusetts. But the first to build a house and settle in 
Conway was Cyrus Rice, in 1762. All authorities on the subject 
agree upon the fact that Cyrus left his home in Barre early in the 
spring of 1762, came to this section of Deerfield, purchased a 
tract of land situated upon a high eminence overlooking the valley 
of the Connecticut River, cleared the ground, planted crops, and 
erected a log house of the trees that he had hewn down, and then 
in the fall of that year returned to Barre, and with his wife and 
five children and all his household elTects went back to Conway 
and there began life anew, his only neighbor being the red man 
of the forest. 

But in a short time other settlers began to come in — among 
them being Israel Gates, Ebenezer Allis, Consider Arms, Elias 
Dickinson,' Thomas French, Isaac Wilder, Jonathan Whitney, 
Elisha Amsden, Solomon Field and John Boyden, men of stalwart 
characters and noble purpose in life, some of whose sons and 
daughters and descendants have illuminated the pages of history 
with deeds of honor and valor and made the world at large better 
for their having lived in it. 

The little colony thus gathered soon strengthened in numbers 
and importance, until in 1767, when the people applied for and 
obtained a separation from Deerfield and became incorporated 
under the name of Conway. The first town meeting was held at 
the house of Thomas French, August 24, 1767, when Thomas 
French, Consider Arms, and Samuel Wells were chosen select- 



men. Three weeks later provision was made for the estabUsh- 
nienl of preaching- and the erection of a meeting-house. Two 
years later the church was erected, and the Rev. John Emerson 
was installed as pastor of the Congregational Church, December 
21. 1769. He remained its spiritual leader until June 26, 1828, 
when he w^as taken to his reward on high. During his pastorate 
he admitted 580 persons to the church, liaptized over 1,219 per- 
sons, and followed to the grave 1,037 ^^ ^^'^ flock. In 1778 a 
Baptist church was organized in the town with twenty-nine mem- 
bers, and a Methodist church was formed in May, 1852. When 
tidmgs reached Conway of the alarm at Lexington and the break- 
ing out of the Revolution, the citizens of the town gathered at 
their meeting-house and voted to sustain the Continental Congress 
and to support whatever measures they might put forth. At the 
alarm of Lexington, Conway responded with a large number of 
volunteers, many of whom laid down their lives for their coun- 
try. In the Massachusetts soldiers and sailors of the Revolution 
the names of 427 Rices appear upon the list from different parts 
of the. state. 

A grist mill was built in Conway in the year 1774. followed 
by other industries which gave occupation to the people, chief 
among them being a cotton and woolen miU, and blacksmithing. 
In those days this latter trade was most popular. Upon the black- 
smith depended the supply of all the hardware used in the con- 
struction of buildings, in the making of wag'ons, agricultural im- 
plements and all other articles made of iron. There were no fac- 
tories in those days to turn out by machinery these necessary 
articles as in the present time, consequently we find the black- 
smith making all the nails, bolts, locks, hinges, plows, shovels, 
tools, horseshoes, etc., as well as the wagons and sleighs then in 
use. As the demands of the trade were great and the work profit- 
able, many of the Rices engaged in it. Later, however, as 
machinery came into use, the Rices became the tillers of the soil, 
and many of their descendants became farmers. Among them 
were Jonas Rice whose farm was handed down to his descendants 
Joel, Jonah, Calvin and Joel ; also Israel Rice and his son Joseph 
and grandson Austin ; also Daniel Rice and his son Rodolphus. 

The population of Conway in 1776 was 905; in 1790 it rose 
to 2.082, the largest the town ever had. In 1866 it fell ofif to 1,538, 
wliile to-day there are not more than a thousand people living 
there. While beautiful in situation, and possessing many natural 
advantages, it is ofif the line of the railway and suffers from isola- 
tion. 

In the earlv days of Conway the Rices were very numerous, 
there are but few remaining to-day. Mr. Franklin Rice, a de- 
scendant of Benjamin, is living at x^shfield with his family, and 
carrying the mail between that point and Conway. James B. Rice, 
Roswell G. Rice, William H. Rice, Mrs. Luna Rice Lee and 

4 



Mrs. Jennie Rice Boyden, lineal descendants, are still livinir in 
Conway. (1908.) Other descendants are livin.a: in Deerfield, 
Sonth Deerfield, Soutlibridge and other contiguous places. But 
the vast number are scattered all over the United States from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific and from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. 

The Rev. Charles B. Rice, in his address at the celebration 
of the hundredth anniversary of the incorporation of Conway, 
held in that town June 19, 1867, locates for us the sites of the 
various farms that were occupied by the early Rices. Of the first 
settler, Cyrus, he says : His house was upou the south side of an 
old and now unused road that led from the vicinity of John 
Field's, past the place lately occupied by Bradley Packard, to the 
present countv road a little distance above the old tavern stand 
long known as the Hawley place. The first house was about 
twentv-five rods southeast of the spot now marked by an ancient 
cellar with bricks and rubbish, on which the family afterwards 
lived. In this house Beulah Rice was born, the first child Iwrn in 
Conway. Further on westerly, on the top of the hill, Jonas Rice, 
of Grafton, located, and where his descendant Joel lived. 

Still further on. Deacon Caleb Rice lived, moving after- 
wards to the top of Arms' Hill, and to Genesee. Beyond the 
river, in Broomshire, was Israel Rice, from Grafton, and where 
afterwards x\ustin Rice lived, and northward of him, Timothy 
Rice also of Gx^afton settled. Israel Rice and William War- 
ren were the first of these settlers. Mr. Warren with the 
father of Mr. Rice explored the neighborhood and bought 
lands in 1762, the year of Cyrus's coming. Two years later Mr. 
Warren and Israel Rice undertook to visit their estates, but losing 
the former track up the Deerfield, and striking the sharp banks 
of the South River at or below the point of Hoosac they could not 
cross and went back disconcerted. The next year they efifected 
a landing, crossing near the present bridge, and prepared, Mr. 
Rice the frame, Mr. Warren the logs, for a house. In 1766 
they brought their families. Joseph and Benjamin Rice, twin 
brothers from Westboro settled in Conway about 1774-75, where 
they carried on a prosperous business in blacksmithing. 

In 1867 there were sixteen farms still occupied by the de- 
scendants of the first owners and occupants. Among them were 
the following in the order of their descent: The farm of Jonas 
Rice, Joel, Calvin, Joel; of Israel Rice, Joseph, Austin; Bertha, 
wife of Daniel Rice, Rodolphus. 

I am greatly indebted for much valuable assistance in com- 
piling this genealogy to Mr. H. W. Billings, of Conway ; Mrs. 
Percy W. Rice, of Cleveland, O. ; Miss Julia H. Rice, of Burling- 
ton, Vt., and to many others without whose aid this work could 
not have been accomplished.

DESCENDANTS OF CYRUS RICE, FIRST 
SETTLER AT CONWAY. 

CYRUS RICE (Josiah; Ephraim; Thomas; Ednuuul), son 
of Josiah and Sarah Rice, was born in Worcester. ^lass., Decem- 
ber lo, 1726. His father died at the early age of ^t, years, leaving 
a widow, a son and two daughters. 

On March 27. 1750, Cyrus was married to Elizabeth Eaton, 
of Worcester. She was the daughter of Ezra and Silence King, 
alias Rice, of Brimfield, Mass.. now Monsen. born November 16, 
1732. and married first a man by the name of Eaton. No record 
of this marriage or of his death has l)een found. 

Cyrus after his marriage with Mrs. Eaton in 1750, removed 
to Barre. where five of his children were born. There are certain 
deeds upon record at Springfield showing that his wife Elizabeth 
inherited from her father Ezra, who died January 14, 1746, a por- 
tion of the estate, and also showing that Cyrus purchased from 
Williaiu King twenty-three acres of land in r.rimfield, being Wil- 
liam's interest in the estate. Elizabeth also had twent\-three 
acres. 

A deed dated October 18. 1756 (Book 2. page 363), and re- 
corded at Springfield, Mass.. makes Cyrus a resident of Rutland. 

It has been claimed that his wife. Elizabeth, died soon after 
reaching Conway in 1762, and that the daug'hter, Beulah, who was 
born January 10. 1764. was the child of a second wife. 

This claim, however, cannot stand in view of the fact that at 
S])ringfield there is a deed upon record (Book 7. page 587) dated 
April 13, 1764, and signed by Cyrus Rice and his wife Elizabeth, 
of Deerfield, and other heirs of Ezra King, alias Rice, showing 
that she was living in April, 1764. This settles the dispute about 
Beulah being the child of a second wife. Another interesting 
fact is that this child was named after her mother's sister, Beulah. 

Elizabeth died however before 1767, and was buried in Deer- 
field, though no record of the death can be found. It is recorded 
in Deerfield that Cyrus was married on October 19. 1767, to Eliza- 
beth Wright, by the Justice of Peace, Thomas W^illiams. The 
church records at Conwav state that this second wife united with 
the church there from Harvard, May 16. 1770, and that she died 
at Conway, February t6. i77(), at the age of 40 years. 

Nine months later, on November 29. 1779, Cyrus married 
Mrs. Ruth Lamb, of Deerfield. widow of Samuel Lamb, with 
whom he lived but four years, she dying October 3, 1803, at the 
age of 56 years. 

Of his three wives but one has erected to her memory a tomb- 
stone, the last, which is in the cemetery at Conway alongside that 
of her husband, Cyrus, who died August 4, 1804, at the age of yy 
years, loved and respected by all who knew him. Although a 
farmer by occupation, he devoted a good part of his time to the 
development and welfare of the town of which he was the first

settler. On June t6, 1767, Conway was set off from Deerfield, to 
which it had belonged and was long known as "the Southwest," 
and incorporated as a separate and distinct township. Cyrus was 
one of the prime movers in this action, and at its first meeting as 
an incorporated town, held August 24, 1767. he was chosen con- 
stable of the town, an honorable and important office in those 
days. Subsequently, during- the year 1776-77. at the outbreak of 
the Revolution, he served in the General Court of Massachusetts 
as a representative of his district. He united with the Congrega- 
tional Church at Conway, April 22, 1770.

sical proportions and of great physical strength. Though not 
highly educated, he possessed a logical mind, and rarely met his 
equal in debating a theological question. As the grand object of 
his life he never sought wealth nor did he acquire it. Yet he man- 
aged to live in comfortable circumstances and always sustained 
an irreproachable character. For his memory I entertain a pro- 
found filial regard and ever recall with gratitude his paternal 
kindness and solicitude for my welfare."

(52) PERCIVAL WOOD RICE, son of Harvey and Fannie 
Rice, born November 27, 1829, in Cleveland, O., where he has 
continued to live up to the present time. Early in life his father 
intended giving' him a classical education, and with this end in 
view sent him to a private school, where under a competent 
teacher he readily mastered Latin and Greek. A weakness de- 
veloped in his eyes, and at the age of fifteen he left school and took 
clerkships in the Post-office and other houses. In 1850 he be- 
came private secretary to his uncle. Gov. Reuben ^^'ood, in 
Columbus, O., with rank of colonel on his stafif, and retained the 
same position under Gov. Wood's successor in office. In 1S53 
Mr. Rice entered business in Cleveland, O.. and under the firm 
name of Rice & Burnett carried on a most successful business 
as importers and dealers in china, crockery and cut glass. After 
thirty-five years he retired from business in i88g. 

In 1861, when the call came for troops at the opening of the 
Civil War, the Light Artillery Company of Cleveland, of which 
organization he had served as captain for years, volunteered its 
services with Mr. Rice as leader, and was attached to the Ohio 
14th under General Steedman in Western A^irginia. They (the 
Cleveland battery) fired the first gun on the Union side of the 
war at the battle at Phillips, West A'irginia. His term of service 
having expired, Mr. Rice returned home, and resumed business, 
but later he re-entered the service during the Cincinnati raid, 
serving under General Lew Wallace, located at Newport, Ky. 
He has been honored on several occasions with marks of dis- 
tinction from his fellow citizens — member of the Loyal Legions ; 
member of the Board of Elections for five years ; trustee of the 
Water Works of Cleveland ; an active member of the building 
committee for the erection of the Society for Savings, an institu- 
tion he has served as trustee for twenty years ; was instrumental 
in engineering the Federal Bill through the Ohio legislature; he 
is an enthusiastic yachtsman ; he inherited from his father a love 
for reading and all that is best in art. science and literature ; a 
man of firmness and steadfastness of purpose, possessing an un- 
failing sense of honor and high integrity. His refined and cul- 
tivated tastes and charitable generosity doubtless were imprinted 
in his nature by the young mother whom he knew so little, but 
who left the unmistakable traces of the gentle woman. These 
characteristics, a long and honorable business career, followed 
by the respect of his fellow townsmen, have won for him that 
enviable title — a substantial and foremost citizen of Cleveland. 

Mr. Rice married (i) ]\Iary (Triggs) Cutter. October 4, 
1854, born July 2, 1832, and died October 9. 1858. leaving one 
child; (2) married Sarah Bunnell Peck, daughter of Nehemiah 
and Martha Scovill Peck, of New Britain. Conn., October 20, 
1864; she was born February 7, 1838. In 1878 Mr. and Mrs. 
Rice adopted a daughter of Spafiford and Fannie Harmon Smith,

sent him to a technical school, the Lehigh University, which he 
entered in 1872. taking the engineering course, and graduating 
with honors in July, 1876. He began the practice of his profes- 
sion at once by opening an office in Cleveland, making bridge 
building a spccialtw but taking all forms (if construction work.

Many fine bridges in the country bear evidence of his skill and 
ability in overcoming great obstacles that are not presented on 
the surface of things, and have called forth high praise from the 
profession. 

His proficiency in his calling has created for him a position 
of authority among his co-workers, and frequently he is called in 
consultation when serious and great problems are to be deter- 
mined, and the best results reached. His probity and freedom 
from private gain have given him a name that stands for ab- 
solute honesty and for skill in his profession. He has held the 
office of city engineer of Cleveland a number of times and is held 
in high repute both for his professional skill and integrity of 
character. 

On September 2d, 1903, he was married to Margaret Ander- 
son Barteau, born November 2. 1876.

married, in 1892, Anita Plum, and resided at Tustin, Orange Co., 
Cal. Upon the death of his father, the son, James Harvey Irvine, 
inherited the estate. Few Americans of this generation born 
into an estate of such magnitude as fell to James Harvey Irvine 
upon the death of his father come into it realizing its duties and 
responsibilities as he seems to have done, and exercising a rare 
judgment and modesty in regard to it that is seldom witnessed. 
The giving of the park in Orange Co. and other pulilic and jirivate 
benefactions are but a tithe, and he is fulfilling in the largest 
measure the command of the well-known saying — "Noblesse 
Oblige." Mrs. Anita Plum Irvine died February — ■ 1909.

(80) COL. AUSTIN RICE, son of Joseph and Betty (Dicker-

he married Charlotte Baker (born May 21. 1802), a former 
pupil in one of the schools he taught. On beginning their mar- 
ried life, they estabHshed family prayers, which were said both 
morning and evening, a custom they kept up from that day 
throughout their whole married life. They joined the Congrega- 
tional Church at Conway by profession of faith September 6, 
1829. Austin received his strong religious hnpressions from his 
grandmother. Lydia Sherman Rice, who was a very godly 
woman. In those days every able-bodied man was required to 
train in arms, so Austin was enrolled in the "Floodwood Militia." 
He subsequently became colonel of a cavalry regiment in the 
"Old Hampshire" first brigade, receiving his commission from 
Gov. Levi Lincoln, and would have had a higher rank if he had 
not declined promotion. His father, Joseph, had been a colonel 
before him. 

Austin had a large farm in Conway and kept sheep for the 
market, which was well managed and gave him good returns. 
Both Austin and wife were very fond of books and made free 
use of the literature of the day. 

His popularity among his fellow-men was shown by the con- 
fidence they placed in him by electing him to serve in a number 
of public offices — selectman, school commissioner, assessor, county 
commissioner, member of the State Plouse of Representa- 
tives, director in the Conway Bank, and member of the Board 
of Trustees of the Mount Holyoke Seminary at South Had- 
ley. In politics he was a strong Republican. From the time 
he came into full possession of his farm until his death he gave
