Hi Richard -

Is there any more information you can provide that will help us help you? Such as:

Is RICE Malinda's maiden name and is GONCE her married name?

Country? State/Province?
Time frame?

Husband's name?  Melinda's parents' names.

Malinda's date of birth/death.


Any details you know will help us dig for you.

Wilson Gonce (born late 18th or early 19th century) was the name of Malinda's husband. You can see them and their kids on various census forms:

1850: In Jackson County, AL, NARC Series m432 Roll 7 Page 94

1860: In Creek Twp; McDonald County MO, NARC Series m653 Roll 633 Page 76

Wilson is also listed in the McDonald County (MO) 1861 Tax List (T21-R34) transcriptions; these might be available on microfilm from the Family History Center in Salt Lake, but it's been some time since I looked into them and I know they wre in the midst of a huge product to put everything on line.

Wilson and Malinda are discussed in Barbara Gonce-Clepper's "The Gonce and Wynne Genealogy" (out of print but available in some libraries) and are listed (but not discussed) in my own "Our Gonce Ancestors" (available on Amazon).

I hope this helps.
