This is interesting. I wondered how there were so many Rices here in the states, when there seemed so few back home. My granddad (Joseph Rice) was from Ulster and moved to Glasgow - my dad and that side of my family always said that the real name was O'Mulcreevy which is supposedly from O'Maolchraoibhe. I don't think anyone knows how it became Rice. I wonder if it's time for the O'Maolchraoibhe Rices to change our names back, it somehow feels wrong that that connection was broken and scattered by the English. It would be nice to meet people and know you had the same ancestors more or less.
I need stuff on my Family Heritage for a project and EVERYTHING charges to find this out...
Nice to see all of you rice's, my family is Irish, I guess that makes sense.
i don't know much about my father - he kind of wandered off when i was a teenager. came here to learn something... i learned there are many a Rice out there.
I have always been told that I was German/Irish/native american. I am finding that our surname is Welsh. Not much to go on except my dad's parents Arthur Raymond Rice whom married Twyla Yvonne McClain. Still searching and also trying to learn more of my native american heritage. Any info would be greatly appreciated. My email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Does anyone know my Father; Talmadge E. Rice? Born in Memphis, TN, his brother is Robert Rice and sister Mozelle Rice? Just curious to see if I have relatives I've never met before in that area as I'm from Southern California. I can be reached at email@example.com.
Does anyone know anything about my gggrandfather Humphrey Posey Rice from Cherokee co. Ga. He states on the census that he was born in SVC. I think his father's name is David Rice that came over to Va from Wales in 1833 but I can not find any proof of it and I can not find where Humphrey Posey Rice was buried. Last known address was Dalton Whitfield Co Ga 1880. Thanks for any help
That is (SVC) South Carolina Sorry for the typo
Interesting reading about the different Rice's. Mine are found back to the 1850's with connections to both Louth and Armagh Counties. Testing shows "Scottish DNA" and a close match using DNA has the name of Reece. At a road block now for this line since the church records end before my John Rice's birth in abt 1830. He first immigrated to MA and then WI.
My Family ancestor Henry Rice came to Nova Scotia from Ireland in the 1800's. He marrid a Rebecca Dewolf from Prince Edward Island. Have no info on his family in Ireland . I do know there was a coat of arms with Ravens on it.
