Rice, William H

Rice, William H., a Presbyterian minister, was born in Shelby County, Ky., July 15, 1827. His early education was thorough; his collegiate studies were pursued in Wabash College, Ind., and Hanover College, Ind. He spent one year in the theological seminary at New Albany, Ind., was licensed to preach in April, 1853, and ordained the same year by Vincennes Presbytery, and preached as stated supply for the Church at Rockport, Ind. In 1854 he removed to Texas, in the hope of restoring his health by a warmer climate. While there he preached for the churches at Palestine and Mound Prairie, in the bounds of the Eastern Texas Presbytery. In 1858 he resigned his charge, went to Alabama, and finally, in 1859, returned to Indiana, where he died, Sept. 27, 1859. Mr. Rice had a mind that was clear and penetrating, and his preaching powers were excellent. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1861, p. 106. (J.L.S.)
