The ages and number of children makes this unbelievable!

If you look at the profile it says Levi was b. abt 1750.

Levi Rice
Born about 1750 in map

However, some of the birth dates of other children make no sense!

Your right! Levi is my 3rd gr grandfather and this has bothered me for years, if you would look online his birthdate is given as 1770. And I usually got ignored when I put this question forward and all the kids! Thanks for your response!!!
I believe Levi was born @1770.  He married Jane Simmons in 1801 in Grainger Co., TN.  Henry Rice had at least 12 children during his lifetime.  Levi was one of the youngest.  I don't think anyone has determined the mother of the various children.  As long as Henry lived, he probably had more than one wife.  Research by others is pretty strong that the Margaret buried near him is neither Margaret Bradbourn nor Margaret Bohannon.  I descend from Henry through his son, John, born @ 1760.
