Just covering the basis....
-------------
Neither the Rice or Lakins are my lines ... however, NEAL McKAY RICE, son of JAMES & ELIZABETH(Lakin) RICE, was the first husband of my 2-great grandmother, MaryAnn McDonald.

My Aunt donated their Bible to the "Gentle House" Museum in Monmouth, Oregon to be used as a display item in the old house. My aunt felt that since Neal & MaryAnn were only married for a few months and had no children the book was not of use to anyone (HA!). Anyway, I atleast extracted the following information written inside the Bible before she donated it (whew for anyone related to these persons).

The following is ALLLLLL the information on this RICE family in the book ... there is NO further information available! But I suspect there may be connections to McKays and Franklins as they are used more than once as middle names.
Happy Huntin'....
