Thirteen children between 1651 and 1679.

From book Edmund Rice and His Family, p. 50:

"Thomas Rice, the son of Edmund, who fled Marlboro at the time of the Indian raid, never returned, but remained apparently in Sudbury for the rest of his life where he bought several small parcels of land from various people. His life was not a long one, for he died in 1681 when he was only about fifty-five years old, leaving Mary with several small children to bring up, the youngest, Elisha, only two years old. He left a will giving to his three older sons land in Marlboro where they were probably living. To the fourth son, Ephraim, he gave land in Sudbury to be his as soon s he became of age. The rest of his property he left to his wife who should divide it later between the younger children. Mary must have been an unusual woman, capable and independent. Unlike most widows, she never married again, but brought up her sons and daughters alone and did a marvelous job at it."
