"We are the children 0f many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn betrays its ancestor."
Ralph Waldo Emmerson
Daniel Rice was the fourth son of Henry Rice, the Tennessee Grist miller. He was born in SC ca 1765 - 1770. He died before 1822 in Claiborne Co. TN. He Md. Susannah Senter Dec. 18, 1797 in Hawkins Co. TN. He owned and operated the gristmill that his father, Henry Rice built at Kingsport, TN on the Holston River known as Rice's Mill. He lived not far from Cumberland Gap and was also a gunsmith. I do not believe he had a will but there was a lawsuit amongst his children concerning land of his wife after his death. Daniel and Susannah had 8 children.

Martin Rice in his remembrance wrote about Daiel:
"Daniel Rice, I believe the fourth son, lived and died in Claiborne Co. TN. not far from the Cumberland Gap. His sons were Henry, Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and his daughters were Temperance (our line), and Patience. Some of these I have seen and remember, but have no knowledge of them or their descendants for 50 years past. Daniel was a gunsmith, and his son Henry, was a militia Colonel in 1832 or about that time."
I do not believe Daniel Rice had a will, but there are records of a lawsuit amongst his children and on page 161 of Wilson County, TN Wills, Book I-13, 1802-1850, we find a "Susannah Rice Settlement, 19 Jan. 1848, p. 206." The lawsuit will be picked up and discussed in the chapter on our great-great grandmother, Temperance (Rice) Rice Campbell.
