Children of Mary Brooks (d. 1787, Frederick County, Virginia) — Elizabeth Brooks (1747/1750 – 1816) and Husband George Rice (1735 – 1792): Information About George’s Early Years

April 1898 transcript of bible of George Rice’s father Patrick Rice, giving George’s birthdate — see below for further information about this document

Or, Subtitled: “A Brave and Valuable Officer”

I ended my previous posting, which inaugurated a new set of postings focusing on the family of Elizabeth Brooks (1747/1750 – 1816) and husband George Rice, by telling you that my next posting would begin documenting Elizabeth and George’s lives in detail. Since I made that promise, I’ve been spinning my wheels trying to get a clear grasp of one basic and essential part of that documentation: when was George Rice born? I have yet to find a document that makes the birth year plain, and haven’t run across other researchers who’ve found that evidence, either.
