The following quote is taken from Wikipedia.

Kahnawake surnames

RiceEdmund Rice, from BerkhamsteadEngland, immigrated to Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1638.[6] His grandson Edmund's two sons, Silas and Timothy Rice, were kidnapped by Kahnawake men in 1704 during Queen Anne's War. Adonijah and Ashur Rice, sons of Thomas Rice and cousins of Silas and Timothy, were also captured at the same time from the same flax field in Massachusetts, brought to Kahnawake and raised by local families.[7] Adonijah was eight years old when he arrived and he grew up and married in Kahnawake. His brother Ashur was eventually ransomed by this family and returned to Massachusetts as a young man.[8] Silas, who was nine years old when he arrived, became Tannhahorens and died in 1779 at the age of 90. Timothy, who was seven years old when he arrived, became Oseronhokion and even served as a chief. Both went on to marry local Mohawk women.[3]
