W. A. Rice, born in Seneca county, New York, May 2, 1821, is a son of David and Hannah (Stearns) Rice, who were both natives of Massachusetts.

W. A. was reared on a farm, and during his minority received a good education in the common schools of that section of the State. He lived in the county of his birth, and Monroe county until 25 years of age.

In the year 1848, he came west and settled in Wisconsin, first locating near Janesville, and afterwards near Madison. Here he remained until March, 1857, when he came to Iowa and settled on a farm of 120 acres in section 16, Butler township, Butler county. He lived in Butler county until 1871, when he removed to LaFayette township, where he followed farming until the year of 1880. Having been appointed overseer of the county poor farm, in February, of this year, he entered upon his duties there.

Mr. Rice was married in the year 1846, to Miss Miriam Garrison, who was born in Orleans county, New York. Eight children have been born to them, five of whom are now living - William, Lottie, Charles Herbert, Medora, Lenora.
