From The Valley Chronicle, June 24, 1881:

J. C. Rice, of Campton, who visited our office Tuesday, has been a resident of this locality since 1843, and with "Bob" Rogers, A. J. Marvin, John Wells, S. W. Durant, and others, was reckoned one of the crack ball players of the early days, when "patching" was in order and balls had not become as rocks.
