Notes
a. Note:   Abishai Rice was born on 16 Oct 1701 in Groton, , CT, USA4 and died about 17924 aged about 91.
General Notes: SOURCES:Chuck Gleason <CGleason11@AOL.COM>; George W. King <gwk@widomaker.com>
Landxtion: 04 Dec 1734 received 100 acres of land in Worcester from Brother-in-Laws, which was the homestead of their father and part of their late brother James Rice.
October 2003: DNA testing indicates that Abishai was not descended from Edmund Rice (nor, Elizabeth Balcom(e)) but from Robert Royce of Stratford, Connecticut. What an amazing story it has turned out to be. Elizabeth was, I would have to say {stated by Robert F. Royce}, a fine Christian woman in the true sense, for she took in two orphaned children and raised them as her own. One of those children was Abishai Rice (Royce) son of David Royce of Norwich, Connecticut. And now we think that's why the name went back to Royce. ... more to come. The other child was his younger brother, Matthias.
Abishai married Francis Rice, daughter of James Rice and Sarah Stone, about 1723-1724.4 Francis was born on 6 Mar 1703 in Marlborough, Middlesex Co, MA4 and died about 17974 aged about 94.
