Notes from Don Norman's files: Amon Bohannon Rice a son of Henry and Margaret (Bohannon) Rice, was born about 1746 and died in Harrison County, (W)VA about 1825. He first married Anny Edwards. Anny was a daughter of John and Barbary Edwards. In 1805, Amon and Anny bought 1,250 acres of land in Harrison County, VA for $875.00. Anny apparently died between 1805 and 1809.

Children of Amon and Anny: 1. Abner who married Mary Webb Jan 5, 1809 2. Bohannon who married Elizabeth Webb Sep 7, 1809 3. Hezekiah 4. Sarah who married John Vincent 5. Elizabeth who married James Thomson Jan 14, 1810

In 1809 Amon deeded all his land to his two sons, Hezekiah and Bohannon Rice. In 1812, Amon was granted a license to keep an ordinary (tavern) in Clarksburg, Harrison County. After Amon's death, Jemima married John Smith in 1827. End of Don Norman's notes.

Linn Baiker contributed the following abstract of his Will: Family Hist. Center, film #250018, Harrison Co, WV Historical Records (box 55) which was all wills. I ran across the will of Anon B. Rice dated ??/7/1825. This is what I abstracted. Personal estate to wife, after debts and funeral expenses paid. Plantation where I now live to my wife during her lifetime to better educate my sons, William Jackson Rice and Thomas Jefferson Rice. Asks that his wife educate those sons. After her death, the plantation to revert in equal shares to Wm and Thos. To granddaughter, Nancy Rice, daughter of Rohamman (guess this could be Bohannon) Rice (dec'd) $1.00 from my estate to be paid when she reaches age of 21.
