This does not show all the small moves within New England but shows the major west and north ward migration from MA, CT, RI. and PA to VT, NY, and MI. Not every home in a small area is shown.

There are several generations in New England and eastern NY. But then they were searching for better land and a lot of migration occurred. They moved from over crowded New England as well as the thin top soil in PA with heavy forests to eastern NY, Vermont and to further west to the Niagara area of NY with fewer hills, Eventually they went directly west to MI where the land was very flat and stayed several generations.

Zelah Rice Farmer The Rice Family Tree is dedicated to three incredible genealogists. In the 1930's, two genealogists Zelah Rice Farmer (left) and William E. Andrews (right) researched the Rice family and is the foundation of the work we see here today. They wrote letters and distributed their results to family members so their work has been passed down. Its difficult to imagine the hard work involved before the days of copiers etc.
May Jeffers

The third person the tree is dedicated to May Jeffers. May combined the type of work the early researchers had done by contacting descendants throughout the tree with the modern computer methods. This combination of methods has led to a broad success of her work. May and I are are third cousins. She contacted me and along with her husband Gene, welcomed me into their home. May chaffered me around to met other cousins and visit graves. We lost May to a horrible traffic accident in 2006 and she is sorely missed.

  5. William Hix b. 1745 d. after Apr 1834 Goochland Co. VA m. Ann b. ca 1747 d. 1820-1830. When he sells land Ann is listed as his wife.
    Sabra lists William as her brother in her will. He was her only sibling living at that time. In 1824 William Hix sells land in Charlotte (part of a 514 acre tract of Sabra's to be divided among her heirs) while he is resident in Goochland. The land is resold in 1834 where that owner states he belives it is 1/9 of the 514 Acre plot. That means the William Hix of Goochland in the Charlotte deed is Sabra's brother and not her nephew John's son William. William her nephew would have shared 1/9 of John's portion with the rest of John's other children. Only William her brother would get a full 1/9th portion.
    There is another William Hix in Goochland in the late 1780/90s who married Elizabeth Harris. The moved to KY where that William died long before Sabra's will and the 1824 deed. The William Hix with wife Ann living in Goochland in 1824 of the right age served in the Revolutionary War. His Pension Application says he joined in 1781 for 18 months. Got a pension in 1833 and 1834 in Goochland. He applied in both 1919 and 1920. He lists wife Ann in 1820 pension application with her age.
    Based on Personal Tax records William and Ann had at least 2 sons John and Abner. An unrelated Mashack Hix lived in Goochland at the same time. He too had a son John Hix. A John Hix who married Kitty has a son Abner. Abner's parents are named in his last 2 marriages. A lot of trees assign John with son Abner to Masheck. I think they belong to William as the name Abner is not real common and its likely John names his son Abner after his brother.

Where were the 4 siblings born? Census records give a variety of suggestions. Richard is the only sibling to make it to 1850 and his census says VA. Three children of the siblings lived to the 1880 census and each had a different state. Wesley Washington Hutchings says NC. Mary Ann Hutchings says SC, Richard Hutchings says MO but that is clearly an error

Al st all Hanover deed records were burned land patents were recorded with the colony as well as the county so the record of them scurvies today.

  1. In Louisa Co VA John jointly sells land with wife Lettisha Estes' father Richard Estes. This was a half of a Hanover Land Patent originally solely owned by Richard. Presumably he gifted some of it to John as a marriage gift. Richard lived next to John's father in VA and he lived near John in Caswell Co NC. on Countyline Creek.
  2. John is identified as Jr in Louisa Co deeds. In Caswell where is father is not there and he has an adult son, John is usually called John Sr or his son is called Jr.
  3. John Rice Sr of Caswell Co has been tied to a birth/baptism record that is someone else. The record has a birth date of 1728 for parents John and Mary Rice in Middlesex County. But John is older than that and the Middlesex Rice's are a different family.
  4. In John Sr's will he mentions son-in-law John Rice who is married to his daughter. In John Jr .4's will he mentions his nephew Simeon the blind son of John Rice5. This connects him to John Rice who moved to Wilson County TN with son Simeon.
  5. Son Thomas maybe the Thomas Rice in Gloucester District who lives near John Rice Sr's son-in-law John Rice and that John's brother James. That Thomas Rice has no land in 1777, land 1780-1783 (he bought and sold 150 acres). In 1783 no land then in 84 and 86 252 acres. The are no tax records from 86 until 96 and Thomas is not there in 96. John Rice's son Thomas we only have a reference in John's will in 97 and when the estate settled 1804. It is clear he is still living but where abouts unknown and if he was the Thomas in Gloucester District.

    1. He was a lawyer. It is son David who tells us the name of his uncles and some details about 3 aunts as well as naming some of his great uncles.
  12. ????Many trees have Mary Rice b. 13 Oct 1732 Hanover m. 1745 James Garland Sr. d. 1812 Albemarle VA as a daughter of David. Although she is clearly a Rice it is unlikly she is a daughter of David. It is unlikely David had 2 daughters named Mary. Mary Rice who married Edmund Haggard is a daughter indicated by her nephew David Rice son of Benjamin. David says David Sr had 4 daughere but gives no clues for the 4th. She May have not married or May even have died young. Mary Rice Garland has no sons called David. Her location in Albemarle with other Edward children and having a son named Edward make it more likely she is a daughter of Edward. But she is listed as a question mark.since it is not known for sure.


Line 2:

This Caswell Co John Rice who it the son-in-law of John Rice Sr and he is brother to James Rice. This John and James lived next door to each other and after over 20 years and Caswell Co sold their land within a month of each other with John going to Wilson Co TN and James to Logan Co KY -which although not in adjoining counties still relatively near each other. Two generations later, John's grandaughter Massy Bancy wed James's grandson Jeremiah Rice and the couple moved to Southern IL along with many extended family members.

The Rice Cabin was built by John & Mary Rice. It was moved twice - once within the Rice property and then moved to the county fairgrounds called Fiddler's Grove when an Interstate would have destroyed it. Fiddler's Grove has a number of local old buildings. The logs are all original.

The maple used to make the bed came from the Rice Farm



The Rice Cemetery founded in one part of the original property still exists. but few gravestones are left. The terrain's unevenness clearly indicates many graves are there. It is likely John Rice is buried there and a Memorial has been placed there
