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.


? I find many family trees do not clearly state what is speculative information. I have seen my work copied with the question marks removed and the data presented as fact. Please preserve speculative information as it is, unless you have verified something. If you have verified something let me know.
