I too am looking for my elusive Rice ancestors. I have a suspicion that he is the brother of my GGMother Mary Francis Rice. I have no proof, only a coincidence of facts. My GGMother Mary was born in Fleming Co. KY in 1844, moved at some point to Knox Co., IL where she married my GGFather Collinson in 1873. They later left IL and moved to Iowa.
The biography of Fantleroy Rice states he was born in KY in 1840, moved to IL in 1857 (age 17), served in the Civil War. Perhaps he is the Fantleroy Rice you are looking for - it seems a bit coincidental that there could be two Fantleroy Rice's in Illinois.
I'd love to hear more about your connection to Fantleroy.
