Hello Berna,

I feel sure that you have made corrections to your data at this point, but I do want to clarify the relationship of Thomas (Cabbin Branch) Rice to "Old" John Rice of Caswell. Thomas could not have been the son of John; but most likely was his brother, as Thomas Rice's eldest daughter, Rebecca Rice Windsor(my ancestress), was born 30 December, 1745(recorded in the Windsor Family Bible); she was his eldest child and daughter. This would have made Thomas born closer to 1724, and age 80 at his death in 1804. "Old John" was old, but not ancient, as his death in 1797, only 7 years before Thomas, would indicate should he have been Thomas CB Rice's father.

John Rice did name a son, Thomas, in his will, but these presents us with a 4th Thomas Rice in Caswell County, if that was where John's son lived.

Older researchers of the Rice family of Caswell County, began the use of "Old John" to distinguish him from the eldest son of Thomas Rice, born 1757; killed by Indians in Ohio in 1791, at the age of 34, and unmarried, without heirs.

John and Thomas would have fit quite nicely as sons of John Rice, son of Thomas and Marcey Rice of Hanover, who was christened 18 September 1698 according to St. Peter's Parish records.

Best regards,

John Fox
