Recently while I was at the Archives in Raleigh, I noted a John Rice who d. in Orange County, NC in 1783. I had seen the abstract of his will many times and it showed his son-in-law to be Jesse Towell. In the index of Will Book A it shows John Rice and lists the devisees as Catrin Rice, Hannah Terrell, John Terrell, Henry Terrell and Jesse Terrell. John and Henry Terrell were the sons of Hannah Rice and Jesse Terrell. Does anyone know anything about this Jesse Terrell?
I have been following another Rice-Bledsoe-Terrell connection in NC. Lohammer (Hannah) Terrell m. Barnabus Bledsoe. Their daughter Agnes Bledsoe m. Presley Rice in 1799 in Wake County, NC. Presley appears to have been from a family in Granville County. Presley Rice had a son named Jeptha after Lohammer Terrell's brother, Jeptha Terrell.
Any help will be appreciated.
