James Rice was a gas-maker in Newark, N. J. who went to Texas and engaged in farming, but on account of three successive failures of crops he moved with his family to Fresno, in 1885, and entered the service of the Fresno Gas Company.
James made gas for the concern and also showed them how to establish their business, and in 1890 he located in Kutner Colony on some raw land.
James Rice died February 16, 1915, and Louise Rice passed away in June, 1917. They were very generous and hospitable and assisted many of the early settlers to get a start.
