  • Note*: Martha Rice's American ancestors are not recorded in this database, but are partially known from various books and sources:

    Martha's Rice ancestors are documented in Andrew Henshaw Ward's book. See the pedigree of Martha Rice on the Edmund Rice Association website at url=http://www.edmund-rice.org/era5gens/p9.htm#i58625.

    The parentage of Martha Rice's paternal grandmother, Rachel Wheeler, is less certain. The assertions in the Andrew Henshaw Ward book are not supported by the Albert Gallatin Wheeler book.

    See the Shattuck book regarding Martha Rice's maternal grandparents, including deaths and capture by Indians.3,4,5,6
