January 13, 1998
- Jonathin RICE was an early settler of the Jackson township as reported in the centennial
address in Bolivar, July 4, 1876. I believe he was married to Isabella C. Rice who was a
Missouri pensioner in 1879 in Orleans. I can not find confirmation of the marriage. I
believe Isabella is the mother of Boone C. Rice who was born in Polk county Missouri in
1844. In 1863 he fought in the civil war and was discharged from Springfield in 1865. He
was later married to Barbary A. Rice, December 5, 1880 by Frank HAGENMAN J.P., in Polk
County. Barbary A. Rice maiden name was MCMEHEN. Boone and Barbary lived in polk county
till 1892 and settled on property in the Oklahoma land run. This property was located
outside Elk City, Oklahoma in Beckam county. Jonathin and Isabella would be my great,
great, grandparents and Boone and Barbary were my great grandparents.I am looking for any
and all information on the Rice's of Polk county that could confirm the marriage of
Jonathin and Isabella.
