Guess where some of my Rices are buried -- Rice Cemetery in Cottage Township, Saline County, Illinois!
Captain James A. Rice is found at FindAGrave as being buried in Rice Cemetery. His grave is there; we visited this cemetery several years ago. [Note: His mother is listed as Elizabeth Lee on the record; I believe his mother was Ann (Hinds) Rice, daughter of William Hinds and Elizabeth Acklin].
Rice Cemetery, NE 1/4 NW 1/4, Section 7, T 9 S R 7 E. Take US Route 45 North from Harrisburg. Turn east on gravel road just north of the first bridge and before reaching Muddy Road go east about 1 3/4 miles. The cemetery is located on the north side of the road on the side of a fairly large hill and covers about two acres.
