|Description||Residence of Erastus Rice. Section 6. Richfield Township, Adams Co. ILLS. (pg 44). BW Drawing 12" x 7". ERASTUS RICE was born in Boone county, Kentucky, April 7th, 1816. His father, Joshua Rice, was born in Virginia about the year 1779, and when quite young he removed to Kentucky. About the year 1810, he was married to Miss Mary, daughter of Captain George Corn. She was born in Kentucky in 1786. The fruits of their union was a family of ten children, eight of whom reached mature age, and six still living. The subject of our notice is the third child. Joshua Rice followed the vocation of a farmer. His son, Joel W., was a soldier in the Union army during the late rebellion, and died from disease contracted while in the service. Mr. Rice died at his residence in 1855. His wife still survives, and is residing in Boone county, Kentucky. William Rice, the grandfather of Erastus, served as a soldier in the war of the revolution, and was killed in one of the contests of that period. Erastus|
