am seeking Wilder Rice (?1766 Petersham, MA - aft 1800 NY) I am uncertain of the dates given.
His parents were Ephraim Rice III or Jr (abt 1733 Petersham, MA - 11/1/1810 Dummerston, Windham co, VT) and wife Joanna Wilder (1/2/1740-1 Petersham, MA - 1/15/1798 Dummerston, VT.)
Father Ephraim Rice, of Dummerston, Windham co, VT, husbandman, names his wife Joanna, and 6 children in his Will dated 1/10/1788 - probated 11/30/1810: Ezekiel, Elijah, Wilder, Caty, Molly and Joanna.
A Wilder Rice sold the COVEY FARM, in Dummerston or Brattleboro, VT, to Benjamin Hadley. Benjamin Hadley died 3/24/1776 on said farm. He had previously lived in Groton, MA.
Any details of any of these people, or VT land transactions would be greatly appreciated.
