Looking for gravesite and/or Obituary of Ira James Rice, born 1808, Greene Co. NY. We believe he died Feb. 10, 1894 and had always thought it was in Coffeyville KS. Now we find out that his son inlaw and daughter, with whom, Ira was apparently living, didn't arrive at Coffeyville until 1897. His son inlaw, Joseph Ames Rice's obituary states that Joseph, had "several circuit charges, as a traveling Methodist minister, in Christian Co. MO. in the vicinity of Marionville, former home of the family."
Several family members have been looking for this information for 35 or more years.
Any help or pointing me in the right direction, would be greatly appreciated!
