Topic: Ira James Rice
From: Clyde Rice clideryce@aol.com

Looking for my gg grandfathers grave. Ira James Rice born 1808, Greene Co. NY. He came to either Wilson or Montgomery Co. KS, about 1882 by way of IA.

He had a daughter, Frances Marion Rice, married to a Joseph Rice, Ira's nephew, yes cousins. The best we know is Ira died Feb. 10, 1894. Frances and Joe, I believe lived there until death in the 19 teens or twenties. I believe they had at least one daughter, as my uncle told me he used to write to his cousin and she told him she could shoot antelope from the front porch.

Thanks for any info!
