We were both born on the 4th of July, 50 years apart; and I was his first granddaughter, Mary Jane Rice. My aunt, Elizabeth Brown (who we children called Aunt Bethy) was his first daughter, and she was born on the 4th of July on granddaddy's 25th birthday..So, the 4th of July was the first big family celebration I remember at age two. This day was always a big day in grandaddy's ( and the Rhodes' lives). Granddaddy was a quiet man, and we both suffered from a neurological disorder that seemed to hit some of the Rhodes family members in mid-life. I no longer have the problem with medication; unfortunately, grandaddy did not have this privilege. He suffered severly from this affliction. For that reason we children had to be quiet in the house we we visited. At Easter time, the last time we were all at Grandaddy's and Nano's (except for my father, George B. Rice, Sr. and his son, Jr.) we took the final family pictures on the steps of their home. I was insistent that grandaddy, Aunt Bethy, and I have a picture taken together on the front steps (the three birthday's), and that is how we have a 4th of July picture for 1953 with grandaddy in the photo. He passed away quietly during his nap two weeks after these pictures were taken. I miss him dearly; we never met as a large, all inclusive, family again.

Although the details are limited, Richard Warren and wife, Elizabeth, and children were mentioned in official records or books of the time period. All seven of their children survived and had families, with thousands of descendan...
