BICE of KY, IA, and California
I am tracking the William Cornelius Bice family from Mercer County Kentucky ( and Pennsylvania before that) Mr Bice and family and about 150 others set out from Kentucky and wandered through Indiana ( Jefferson County) where one daughter married and stayed and added to the Bear (Bair,Behr) family. THey continued on through Sacramento where a child (Edmund) was born and died) and settled in Healdsburg. Cornelius had marred Mary Jane Koger (from Virginia) They had 10 children and ran a large farm/orchard in Sonoma County. Mr Bice died in 1879. My great grandmother was Mary Florence Bice who became a Methodist missionary in Japan, where she met her husband, William Albert Davis. I would love to hear from other Bice relatives.
