John C. Rice[1], was born in California, the only child of John H. Rice[2]  and Martha Dent[3], who were married on March 13, 1889 in Amador County. The exact date of John C. Rice’s birth is not known at this time and because his life was so brief, we will focus on his many siblings.

 

John C. Rice had 10 older half-siblings; 6 boys and 4 girls from his parents’ previous marriages: Bertha Lillian Rice[4], Carleton Gaines Rice[5], Henry H. Rice[6], Irene Rice[7], Frances M. Rice[8], William Wells[9], Charles Wells[10], Millard Wells[11], Clarabelle Wells[12] and Peter Wells, Jr.[13].

 

It was a 2nd marriage for both John H. Rice and Martha (Dent) Wells, who had lost their spouses, as John’s wife, Mary had died almost ten years before, leaving him with four children. Martha Wells had been widowed five years before this marriage and had five children.

 

The marriage of John H. Rice and Martha Dent took place the day after the fifth anniversary of the violent death of Martha’s 1st husband, Peter Wells[14], who was killed by brother-in-law, Uzza Finley French[15].

 

In Oleta, California, on March 12, 1884[16], Uzza F. French killed his brother-in-law, Peter Wells, with a single blast from a shotgun. On June 29, 1886, Uzza French was hanged in Stockton, California for the crime.

 

Martha Dent was born in St. Francois County, Missouri, the child of Samuel Dent[17] and Martha Jane Hanes[18], who were married in the “Lead Belt” of Missouri, on March 27, 1845 and had 3 children born in St. Francois County: Ann Dent[19], Martha Dent and William Frank Dent[20].

 

When Martha Dent was 4 years old, her family moved west and two more siblings were born in Amador County, California: Elizabeth “Lizzie” Dent[21] and Walter Samuel Dent[22].

In 1852, (Samuel) Dent, born 1822 in Missouri, registers to vote in Calaveras, California in 1852 and his wife, M. (Martha) Dent, born 1822 in Virginia, has a record with him in 1852. Ann Dent, born 1845; Mar (Martha) Dent, born 1847 and Wm (William) Dent, born 1851; all born in Missouri, are enumerated with their parents in Calaveras, in 1852.

 

In 1860, in Township 6, Amador County, in the home of S.C. Gilbert[23], a 45-year-old farmer, from New York, is the family of Saml Dent and Martha Dent, both 38, with their 5 children: Ann Dent 14, Martha Dent 12, Wm Dent 8, Elizabeth Dent 6 and Walter Dent, age 4.

 

Martha Dent was 16 when she married Peter Wells 22, on August 6, 1864 in Amador, California. Peter Wells was the son of Matthew H. Wells and Hannah M. Watts, married in 1838. Peter came to California with his parents and sister, Esther Wells[24], in about 1850.

 

In 1850, Matthew H. Wells 41, is living in Sacramento, California with the occupation of Merchant, living in the home of Captain David Martin[25] 38, former master mariner, now also, a Merchant.

 

In 1860, in Township 4, Amador, California, M. H. Wells 51, is living with his wife, H. M. Wells 46 and their daughter, Esther Wells 20. Matthew, his wife Hannah and Esther Wells were all born in New York.

 

On August 15, 1860, Esther Wells 20, married J. H. Graanbert [sic] or John Henry Granbert [sic] 26 (30-year-old John Henry Grambart[26]), in Amador County and they had a son, John Edward Grambart[27].

 

During the 1860, Census, 17-year-old Peter Wells, born in Canada, is enumerated with Jas H. Milton[28] 36, who was born in New York. It is unclear of the relationship between the two or if there is any at all.

 

Peter Wells apparently did not join his father, Matthew H. Wells, in the acquisition and development of a very lucrative and thriving business, outside of Plymouth, in Amador County, The Central Hotel.

 

On August 15, 1860, Esther Wells 20, married J. H. Graanbert [sic] or John Henry Granbert [sic] 26 (30-year-old John Henry Grambart[29]), in Amador County and they had a son, John Edward Grambart[30].

 

“The Central Hotel was first established in the early 1850’s and in 1863 the ranch and hotel were sold to John H. Grambart and his father-in-law, Matthew Hedges Wells. On the ranch, the men grew hay and were among the earliest to grow wine grapes in Amador. By 1874, they were producing 10 tons of grapes from 5,000 vines, and were noted for their “good quality” of wines. They also raised peaches and plums on the ranch which became known as one of the finest in the county. Well’s heirs ran the ranch until it was sold to Elmer Rupley….”

Peter Wells and Martha Dent had five children together: William Wells, Charles Wells, Millard Wells, Clara Wells and Peter Wells, Jr., who was born two months after his father, Peter Wells, Sr.’s death.

 

In 1870, in Township 6, Peter Wells 27, Martha Wells 22, live with their children William Wells 5, Charles Wells 3 and Millard Wells, age 2.

 

In the 1880 Census, still in Township 6, Peter Wells 34 (38) and Martha Wells 32, now have four children: William Wells 15, Charles Wells 13, Millard Wells 12 and Clara Wells, age 6.

 

In 1880, Samuel Dent 56, Martha’s father, is divorced from her mother, Martha. He is living with Martha Wells and her family, located next door to her mother, Martha J. Dent 59 and Walter Dent 23.

 

In 1880, Samuel Dent 58, is enumerated again, as living in the household of Louis Renno 50, widowed laborer. This home is a house away from John H. Rice 44, his wife Mary Rice 30 and their 4 children.

 

Mary (Meyers) Rice 30, died during the Census taking in 1880, leaving her widower, John H. Rice with 4 children, ages 4, 6, 8 and 11.

 

Less than 4 years after the Census in 1880, Martha Wells, would suddenly become a widow with 4 children, ages 10, 16, 18 and 19, with another child on the way. According to the newspaper report, a “young son” of Peter Wells, Sr., had witnessed his father being shot and killed. Could this witness have been youngest son, 16-year-old Millard Wells?

 

Martha (Dent) Wells, would need to rely on her oldest sons, William 19, Charles 18 and Millard 16, to help with the younger children Clara 10 and newborn, Peter Jr., until she married John Holland Rice.

 

John Holland Rice was born in Kentucky, the son of William Gaines Rice[31] and Cynthia Johnson, who were married on January 25, 1828, probably in Latonia, Shelby County, Kentucky.

 

In 1850, in Scotland County, Missouri, William G. Rice, Cinthy [sic] Rice, both 46, live with their 3 children: James S. Rice[32]  17, John H. Rice 15 and Elizabeth Rice[33] 12. The family would move west to California.

 

It appears that the only daughter of William and Cynthia Rice, Elizabeth Rice, has either passed away or remained in Missouri. Elizabeth Rice may have married, but to whom is not known at this time. There are no valid records for her after the Census in 1850.

 

By 1860, William G. Rice 54 and Susan [sic] Rice 62, are in New York Township, California, where he is a “Stock Grower”. Their sons, James S. Rice and John H. Rice will join them in the venture west.

 

James Samuel Rice 32, the older brother of John Holland Rice,  married Sarah Elizabeth “Lizzie” Belknap[34], age 18 on August 20, 1865, in Amador County and they had eight children together: William Clarence Rice[35], Mary Elouise (Rice[36]) Huff, Bessie Annette (Rice[37]) Shepard, Martha L.  Rice[38], Helen Feral Rice[39], Lois V. (Rice[40]) Brown, George Rice[41] and John Holland Rice[42], named after his uncle.

 

James S. Rice died at age 63 and is buried in Tulare Cemetery, in Tulare, California. In 1930 in, Almeda, California, Sarah E. Rice is 82 and will soon pass away, after having been a widow for 36 years.

 

On July 23, 1868, John H. Rice, age 33, married 18-year-old Mary Frances Sarah Meyers[43] in Jackson, California. John H. Rice and Mary Meyers had 4 children: Bertha Lillian Rice, who married Austin Votaw[44] on December 23, 1888; Carlton Gains Rice, who never married, Henry H. Rice, who died as a baby; Irene Rice and Frances M. Rice, who married Trafton West[45] on July 22, 1984 in Stockton, California.

 

In 1870, in Township No. 3 (Volcano, California), John H. Rice is 34 and his wife Mary F. Rice is 20 years old. Their daughter, Cynthia is 1. Cynthia Rice, age 1 is actually Bertha Lillian Rice.

 

In 1870, John H. Rice lives on the same street as his parents, William G. Rice 66 and Cyntha [sic] Rice 71, who have their oldest son living with them, James S. Rice 37, his wife, Sarah E. Rice 22 and their 3 children: William C. Rice 4, Bessie A. Rice 2 and Mary F. Rice age 1

 

In 1880, Township No. 3, John Rice 44 and wife, Mary Rice 30, live with their four children, Bertha Rice 11, Carlton Rice 8, Irene Rice 6 and Francis Rice 4. John Rice is a Farmer. This is the only Census record found for his daughter, Irene Rice 6, none exist for her after 1880.

 

On February 1, 1891, in Amador County, the sister of John C. Rice, known as Clara, Clarie or Claire Wells 18 (actually 16), married Andrew Bonham[46] 28, a widower with two young girls. Andrew and Clara Bonham would have 12 children together, in the span of 26 years.

 

Andrew Bonham and 1st wife, Martha Madeline Hart[47], had two daughters: Alice May (Bonham[48]) Carpenter and the daughter, named for her mother, Martha Madeline (Bonham[49]) Bulhert. Andrew’s wife, Martha M. Bonham, died giving birth to her namesake, at the age of 24.

 

The 12 children of Andrew Bonham and Clara Wells are: Inez (Bonham[50]) Bloomquist, Mary Ellen (Bonham[51]) Ward, Georgianna (Bonham[52]) Reed, James Bonham[53], who died as a baby; Melvina (Bonham[54]) Cavallero, Aldrun “Audry” Andrew Bonham[55], Clara B. (Bonham[56]) Smith, Alma (Bonham[57]) Tubbs Bresette, Clarence W. Bonham[58], Wesley Earl Bonham[59], Ernest “Ernie or Tiny” Edward Bonham[60] and William Orvis or Orvas Bonham[61].

 

Biography of Ernest E. Bonham (nicknamed “Tiny” - he was 6’ 2”), Major League Baseball player with the New York Yankees, is here:

 

https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/d7503bf4

 

The Andrew Bonham family lives in Elliot, California in 1900, with their combined 5 children, 4-13; in 1910, in Ione, California, with their combined 10 children, 0-22 and in 1920 with their 8 children, ages 2-17.

 

In 1930, Township 2, Amador, County, Clara Bonham 54, is now widowed and has her 3 youngest children, Wesley Bonham 19, Ernest E. Bonham 16 and William Orvas Bonham, known as Devas Bonham 13.

 

In 1940, in Ione again, Clara Bonham is 65, son, William Bonham 22 and Clara’s brother, Charles Wells 74, is a widower, living with them. Also, in the household is Clara’s grandson, Robert Tubbs, age 3, whose father Rolland J. Tubbs[62], had died when he was only an infant.

 

On April 20, 1891, in Amador County, the brother of John C. Rice, Millard Wells 23, was married to Sarah J. Bryant[63] 25. There are no 1900 Census records for Millard and Sarah Wells and it is unknown if Millard and Sarah J. Wells had any children.

 

On May 2, 1891, in Jackson, California, another brother of John C. Rice, William Wells 27, married Lizzie Bryant 29. Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bryant[64], was the older sister of Sarah J. Bryant, who had married William’s younger brother, Millard Wells, only three weeks before.

 

William Wells and Elizabeth Bryant had a daughter born in Placerville, California, named Erma I. Wells[65], who never knew her father, because she was just a 9-month-old baby when William Wells died. Erma Wells would also be known as Irma I. Vance or Erma I. Russell, at her death in California, father’s name being “Wells”.

 

In 1900, in Township 2, Amador County, John H. Rice 65, lives with wife, Marth 52 and their son John Marth, age 11. The Census taker and transcriber have conspired to obliterate the names of Martha Rice 52 and son, John C. Rice 11 from the Amador County Records in 1900.

 

By 1900, all of John and Martha Rice’s other children are old enough to be on their own, but Martha’s son, Peter Wells, Jr., is enumerated as the adopted son of Harry Burris[66] 44 and Rosa Burris[67] 45, in Township 2. Perhaps Peter Wells 17 (actually 16), is the school friend of Harry and Rosa’s son, Arthur Burris[68], age 16.

 

Doe Harry Burris had been orphaned at age 12 and may have been compelled to offer Peter Wells, Jr. a stable environment with the Burris family, who already had five children, ages 3, 11, 13, 15 and 16.

 

In 1910, in Elliot[69], California, Martha and John Rice 74, are still married, but he is now living with his daughter (from 1st wife Mary Meyers), Frances M. West 34, her husband Trafton West 36, daughter Thelma E. West[70] 3, adopted son, Kenneth R. West[71] 7 and Henry H. West[72] 74, the widowed, father of Trafton West.

 

In 1910, Martha Rice 63, lives nearby her husband John H. Rice, with son, John C. Rice, age 19, in Elliot. This would be the last Census record for John H. Rice, Martha Rice and their son, John C. Rice.

 

On October 28, 1911, John Rice, the younger, was committed to the Stockton State Hospital for “dementia and violent tendencies”. The petitioner for his committal was his half-brother P. W. Wells. John C. Rice had suffered with Epilepsy[73] for 7 years and died at 21, at the state hospital, where he had been a patient for 13 days.

 

We should definitely count John C. Rice among those who were afflicted with brain disorders, like his half-brother Millard Wells. If so, John would be, by more than 15 years, the youngest victim claimed.

 

John Holland Rice would succumb to Arteriosclerosis, less than a year after his son, John’s death. The informant for the death was Mrs. Trafton West, John H. Rice’s daughter, Frances M., with whom he lived.

 

It is unclear if Martha (Dent) Wells Rice survived her husband, because there are no records for her after the 1910 Census. Martha Rice is not living with any of her children in 1920 (Millard Wells, Charles Wells or Clara Bonham), so she may have predeceased John H. Rice.

 

On August 17, 1921, the brother of John C. Rice, Peter Wells, Jr. age 37, married Viola Darling[74] 23. The witnesses at the wedding were the bride’s father, A. J. Bonham and his wife, Clarabelle Bonham, the sister of the groom and also the step-mother of the bride.

 

So, in one fell swoop, Peter Wells, Jr. and his sister, Clarabelle (Wells) Bonham became in-laws. Clarabelle, who was ten years older than Peter Wells, was now her brother’s mother-in-law too! Got it?

 

Viola Darling was the daughter of Andrew Darling[75] and his first wife, Jennie A. Hopton, who were married on October 22, 1896 in El Dorado, California. Andrew and Jennie Darling’s 1st daughter, Jennie Juanita Darling[76], was born only 3 months after their wedding.

 

Jennie Almeda Hopton[77] Darling died at age 20, the year after the birth of her second daughter, Viola. Andrew Darling next married Blanche ‘Fannie” Vose, who was the younger sister of Newton John Vose – Chapter 10 – Murders at Montville.

 

After Peter Wells’ death, his widow, Viola (Darling) Wells 53, married divorcee, Arthur Roth[78] 56, on September 15, 1951 in Stockton. Viola Roth died in Amador at the age of 81 and her widower, Arthur Roth, lived to the age of 102! Peter, Viola and Arthur are all buried together in Plymouth Memorial Cemetery in Plymouth, California.

M. Wells, son of P. Wells and Martha Bent [sic], died at Stockton State Hospital of General Paralysis of the Insane. M. Wells is listed as a 56-year-old widowed laborer, born in California to a father born in California and a mother born in Missouri. M. Wells is without a doubt Millard Wells, one of the older brothers of John C. Rice.

 

The life of John C. Rice’s mother, Martha (Dent) Wells Rice was filled with unimaginable tragedies. Martha’s 1st husband, Peter Wells, was murdered by Uzza French, her sister Elizabeth’s husband.

 

Martha’s oldest son, William Wells died at age 28 of unknown causes and her youngest son, John C. Rice died at age 21, after suffering from Epilepsy and then experiencing severe psychosis.

 

Martha, no doubt, saw evidence of the decline in health of her youngest child, John C. Rice, who was ill for the majority of his life. Martha Rice was 42 at John’s birth and this could have played a role in the general well-being of the baby, producing an unfortunate outcome.

 

Martha probably cared for her son, John, as best she could, for as long as possible, until her other son, Peter Wells, Jr., recognized the danger that Martha was in and had John C. Rice committed, probably because their aging mother, could no longer protect herself from him.

 

Martha Rice was 64 years old and likely rendered defenseless, because her husband, John H. Rice 77, in ill health himself, was being cared for in another household, by his daughter, Frances M. West.

 

Martha (Dent) Wells Rice disappears from records in California after the death of her son, John C. Rice, in 1911, so it is unknown if she was a witness to her son, Millard Wells’ descent into madness and eventual death in 1927, at the age of 59. Probably better if she wasn’t.
