  • Notes 
    • I am trying to find the names of Watkins Rice's (married Nancy Deathridge in Illinois ) parents, He was born in Kentucky. He is my gg grandfather. Any help you can give would be greathly appreciated. Contact is wisernolder2@yahoo.com. Thank you very much.

      Georganne Sorenson


      In searching for Georganne, I have found several RICE families in and around Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Putting them together is like a jigsaw puzzle. They, I am sure all all related but how is the question. I do see an Ezekial Rice 1774-1847. He was born in Virginia and died in Muhlenberg Kentucky so he and his brothers are surely related to Watkins, we just have to find the correct path of lineage. A new project for me!
