Doubtful - he first appears married in the 1920 census (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M48K-RM5) with no children (he married Hulda E Johnson on Oct 18, 1910). No children appear in the 1930 or 1940 censuses.

If he had had children between 1910 and 1920, they would be under 10 and would as such not be in separate households in the 1920 census, same story for between 1920 and 1930, 1930 and 1940. By 1940, his wife is too old to bear children.

His middle name was Sigvart and he was born on 16 Sep 1880 per WWI draft records.

He can be found in Eugene, Oregon city directories in the years 1914, 1918, 1921, 1925

His marriage was published in the Morning Register https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66243480/marriage-of-rice-johnson/

He appears in a lawsuit mentioned in the Morning Register here https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66243807/morning-register/

(also in the January 28th edition)

The lawsuit seems to be the result of a firm they created https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244202/the-world/

And perhaps some real estate transfers https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244492/morning-register/ (also reported in Nov 10 edition of the Eugene Guard)

He was on the county agricultural committee https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66243954/the-eugene-guard/

He was also on a soil conservation committe https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244393/the-eugene-guard/

He operated a dairy farm https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244012/the-eugene-guard/

There is a picture of him here (https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244074/the-eugene-guard/) which mentions he was previously a ranger (confirmed by the 1910 census, which mentions his occupation as a ranger).

He was a juror in 1957 https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244629/the-eugene-guard/

He was still farming in 1941, evidenced by his attempt to sell a bull https://www.newspapers.com/clip/66244684/the-world/
There are no children who have died whose social security records indicate a Peter S Rice as a father.

There's a person here who is a descendant of Ole and Olin as well. (https://www.ancestry.com/account/profile/00cb3bed-0002-0000-0000-000000000000). Might be worth talking to them to see if they know anything.
