Notes from Janean
Callia T. Rice was probably named for the Rev. David Rice's daughter Challia Rice Trotter
who married John Trotter.
Callia T. Rice is the 3rd great grandmother of Janean Ray.
I have no known locations for the rest of the children but would venture a guess, they all went to
IL since that is where the parents died.
To the best of my knowledge, as I have not totally investigated the authenticity of this, but according
family records, this is my family from Livingston Co., Ky.
Another Rice researcher claims Anne and James Harvey Rice were both
born in Mercer Co. and possibly married in Washington Co. Ky.
supposedly a daughter of Rev.War gunsmith/blacksmith William Rice and his
wife Frances Crenshaw. They also lived in Muhlenberg.
James was probably the son of James Rice of Prince Edward Co. Va and Mary Crenshaw.
Mary and Frances are supposedly sisters and also a sister to Lavinia
Crenshaw that married Nathan Rice (brother of William) and James is
supposedly their brother too or possibly a cousin. Either way he and his
wife Anne were likely cousins.
Another researcher source shows James and Williams parents as Matthew Rice and Ann.
I'm looking at notes in a Rice file in the White Co. Library done by an avid
genealogy researcher cousin of mine deceased. Says from the family of Thomas Rice b. 1568 Sudbury Suffolk, Eng.
Harriets work as with others is not without mistakes.... but my
Callia's mother was supposedly Mary ?? and then Harvey as she has him m. Ann
and listed in the 1850 White Co. census is (with Anne) Nancy b. 1826,
Franklin b. 1827, Catharine b. 1829, Laticia b. 1821, James b. 1824, (all
Again, my information comes from family histories, and other's researched,
documented and not documented. A good portion of my material and
information came from Bill Couch, Jeff Murphy, Diana Sutera and Becky Rice
from Couchgenweb.com/family/rice2 on William Rice of Muhlenberg, Ky.
I do not claim this as my work at all, this is all for future research purposes
as I have been working on other lines. ..... Janean
