John Rice
Birth: Dec. 20, 1651
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Sep. 6, 1719
Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA

John Rice was born on 20 December 1651 at Sudbury, Massachusetts, a son of Edward Rice and Agnes Bent. He married Tabitha Stone, daughter of Deacon John Stone and Anna Rogers, on 2 November 1674 at Sudbury. John and Tabitha were the parents of eleven children:

John Rice (1675-1733)
Anna Rice (1678- )
Deliverence Rice (1681- )
Tabitha Rice (1683- )
Prudence Rice (1685-abt 1776)
Abigail Rice (1687-1754)
Edward Rice (1689-1756)
Dinah Rice (1691- )
Moses Rice (1694-1755)
Tamar Rice (1697- )
Aaron Rice (1700-1755)

The part of Sudbury that John Rice resided in is now part of Wayland, on the easterly side of the road leading from Weston to Saxonville, and on part of the homestead of his grandfather Edmund Rice, not far distant from "the spring," near which was the residence of his brother, Deacon Edmund Rice. John was a subscriber of Prince's Chronology, and was fond of historical reading.
John died on 6 September 1719 at Sudbury. His estate was probated on 29 January 1719/20 at Wayland, Middlesex Co, MA. He died intestate. His widow Tabitha and son Moses were appointed Administrators. Inventory was taken Sept 17, 1719, "Widow Tabitha, being aged and infirm, made oath at Weston."
Exact burial site is unknown, but I have placed him here in the oldest cemetery in Sudbury, he was possibly buried on the family property.
