Categories: Descendant of John Rice of Rhode Island.


Sara Rice born in Battle Creek, Michigan. I have 4 older brothers. My parents were Wilfred E. Rice . b 1927 Battle Creek and Helene Smith b. 12 Aug 1927 Chicago, IL. I lived in Bay City, Michigan from 1964-1972 and then Battle Creek where I graduated from St. Philip and then Western Michigan University.
I taught secondary Spanish and History in Kankakee, IL., Homer, MI and Bellevue, MI. Later I discovered my ancestors lived in all three places! I went on to receive a MA degree in History and presented research on a national level about my Italian family. I received a second MA in Organizational Learning and Performance and have done extensive trainings on various mental health topics. I am a published author through the publisher Seeking Safety.
I have worked on genealogy for 30 years and have contracted to do genealogy for others.

Major lines I work on are:

Rice from Rhode Island
Schmid/Smith from Yamaska, Quebec
Smith from around Toronto to Niagara, NY to Michigan
Tenney - Rowley, MA
Palmer- Rowley, MA
Zanotti - from Cuceglio, Piemonte, Italia
Costa Zana - from Cuceglio, Piemonte, Italia
McCandlish from Wigtown, Scotland
Sheehan from Kill Parish, County Waterford, Ireland
Ronayne or Ronan from Kill Parish, County Waterford, Ireland
Looking for a Warren connection to Palmer family Polly Warren Palmer
Looking for Edward W. Rice and spouse Deborah's last name.
Crosby line - Rowley, MA intersecting with Palmer line
Constance Brigham - Rowley, MA
I have my kids line:
Hicks, Lively, Reel, Forehand, James (as in Jesse), McGahan, Sisk, Barbee, from PA, NC and other places in the South.
Thomas Blackburn Rice b. 10 Sep 1870 Randolph County, Arkansas, d. 29 Jun 1927. (Thomas is an Edmund Rice descendant) married Emmer Forehand 23 Sep 1906 Randolph County, Arkansas

Hi Sara,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

It's great to see your efforts on the Rice Name Study. Please note, however: Individual people's profiles don't belong in high-level categories like Category: Surnames and Category:One Name Studies. Those categories are intended to hold more specific categories. Just place the people in Category: Rice Name Study.

I've removed some of the high-level categories you added to individual people's profiles, but it looks like there are plenty that need to be removed.  :-)
