I may have found this information.  It appears that Thomas Rice's mother was the daughter of Jacob and Jane Rice, and that she had several siblings, including one by the name of Thomas Rice.  Thomas Rice-1519, had an uncle Thomas Rice.
Thomas  Rice from Gays Creek ,wife was Minerva Gay! AB and Margaret Begley Gay's daughter.
I too have noticed that my grandmother "Minnie" Rice, was known as Minerva and some other names, on censuses, but her tombstone, has Minnie with no " " and her children all called her Minnie.

The question still remains who was the father of Thomas Rice? Also where does the SURNAME RILEY, come into play, He has a maternal half-brother, John Riley.  Was John's father married to their mother?
Thomas Rice, my grandfather was the son of William Abner and Martha Rice. His parents were never married. My great grandmother Martha Rice had children by several different men.
