    My grandmother told me that various family members wee born in or lived in Marrion, Palmyra, Macedon , NY. I found the family in the U. S. Census records, mostly in Wayne Co. near Marion Walworth (has been part of both Wayne and Monroe Counties) & Macedon (although some appear in Monroe County too).  Most of my Rice photographs were taken in Palmyra or Rochester, N.Y. according to his obituary, James Rice Jr. was a businessman in Palmyra, NY, and removed to Titusville, PA shortly after 1860 where he died March 20th 1898.
    Aaron Rice born 17 Nov 1768 in Connecticut was buried with James and Mercy Rice in the Hall Cemetery in Marion. He moves around with James, and James’s headstone says he came from Connecticut at the age of 19 or about 1800. I think Aaron may have been James’s older brother. The Aaron the pals along with James does not appear with in the 1800 Census for Ontario. NY
    In the 1810, Aaron appears in Ontario, NY.
    In the 1810 Ontario NY Census several James Rices appear but only the one in Williamson matches my James Rice’s family (Minus Arnold who was probably not yet born or missed as an infant.
    In the 1820, Aaron appears in Ontario, NY.
    In the 1820 Ontario NY Census two James Rices appear but only the one in nearby Williamson matches my James Rice’s family (minus George age 18).
    Aaron appears in the 1830 Census for nearby Walworth NY.
    In the 1830 Wayne NY Census James Rice appears in Marion, near his sons George W Rice (Marion), Arnold E Rice (Ontario, Wayne)) and Simeon appears in Greece, Monroe Co., NY on the other side of Rochester. John and Elizabeth (Rice) Atwood appear in Marion in 1830.
    Aaron Rice dies 10 Jan 1833 at Walworth, NY and is buried in the Hall Cemetery, in Marion, NY.
    James Rice Sr. and his sons all appear living next to each other in the1840 for Marion, NY: George W. Rice, Simeon Rice, James Rice and James Rice Jr. The John Atwood also appear in Marion at this time, although his wife Elizabeth (Rice) Atwood decease in 1832. William & Almyra Steele are also deceased, both passing in 1834.
    In the 1850 NY Census, James Rice Sr. appears in Marion with his wife Mercy Rice, and daughter Sylvia A. Nims and grandson Oscar E Nims. Living next to him is Simeon Rice with his wife Rebecca, and children Stephen Rice, Jane Rice, Phebe A. Rice, and Julia A. Rice. Also living nearby is William and Julia A (Rice) Hogoboom with their family, Julia A Hogoboom, Robert A. Hogoboom, William A. Hogoboom,  George C. Hogoboom, Stephen R Hogoboom. Next to them is living:  George W. Rice, wife Sally and children, Delinda Rice, Veniah W. Rice. James Rice Jr. shows up in nearby Walworth with wife Catherine (Hogoboom) Rice, and children Almira E.
