Captain Moses Rice, son of John Rice (3), was born in Sudbury, October 27, 1694, married Sarah King, of Sudbury, November 16, 1719, and removed to Worcester, about 1722, with her brothers, Ezra and Peter King. Rice opened a public house on the site of one afterwards kept by Captain Ephraim Mower.
They later moved to Charlemont, Massachusetts, where they were the first settlers.
From History of Western Massachusetts:
The Rice and Taylor families were the first, and most important settlers. They had more property than the others, and secured the best situations. Capt. Moses Rice was born in Sudbury, Mass., Oct. 27, 1694, married Sarah King of the same town Nov. 16, 1719, went to Charle- mont about 1747, and took with him seven children : Samuel, (born 1720,) Abigail, Aaron, (born 1724,) Dinah, Sylvanus, Tamar, and Artemas, (born 1734.) Capt. Rice was about 53 years old at the time of emigration, and his children ranged from 27 to 13 years old. The deed from Gershom Keyes to Capt. Rice, recorded in Springfield in 1741, is the earliest deed on record, to any settler of Charlemont.
Moses was killed by Indians on 11 Jun 1755.
N.B. A different Sarah Rice married Benjamin Comstock at Charlemont in 1782.
