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.

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.
