BIOGRAPHY
Christopher Dice
H. W. Beckwith History of Montgomery County, Indiana
(Chicago: HH Hill, 1881)

CHRISTOPHER DICE, a successful and influential farmer, resides about three and a half miles from Crawfordsville, on the Indianapolis gravel road. He was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, January 22, 1828. His father, David Dice, settled in this County in 1835 and died in 1843. He was in the War of 1812, was a Jackson democrat, a member of the Presbyterian Church, as also was his mother, Martha. Mr. Dice had the advantages of the common school of his day, and has always lived on the farm. He began farming for himself when he was twenty-one years old, with very little capital. But by hard work, close attention to business, and good management, he has accumulated considerable property. He has now 250 acres of land in good condition. Mr. Dice was married, the first time, in 1848, to Jane 0. Brockmon. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church, and died in 1866. The children by this union were - Martha E., Louisa E., Sarah F. (deceased), Euphemia J., Mary A., James F., William B. and Anna B. (deceased). He was married the second time, in 1869, to Mary A. Brocies. She is a member of the Presbyterian Church, and was born in 1840. They have three children: Edna V., John H. and Chrissie (deceased). Martha is married to David A. Kennedy, and lives in Virginia; Louisa is married to David A. McCray; Mary A. to William R. Borroughs; Euphemia to William 0. Loop. Mr. Dice has been an Elder in the Presbyterian Church for a number of years. He has traveled in the west, Alabama, Tennessee, and revisited the scenes of his boyhood days in the "Old Dominion" three times. His married daughters are members of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Dice is an Odd Fellow, a Knight of Pythias, and in politics a democrat. His grandfather was in the revolutionary war. Mr. Dice is a valuable citizen and a Christian gentleman.
