Was that in a history of Prince Edward Co, VA?
I'm interested in knowing how Rice got its name,
too. The William Rice you referred to was the son
of Matthew Rice, my 5 X GG. He administered on
his father's will. Afterwards, he moved to KY with
some of the Burkes family (of Burkes Old Tavern).
Matthew's will speaks of his plantation on the SAndy
River, so it must have been at the location of Rice.
Two of Richard Burkes' sons married daughters of Matthew
Rice--my 4 X GG Charles Burks married Sarah Rice. His
brother Thompson Burks married Anna Catharine Rice.
