    LETTER FROM AN OLD MAN IN DOVER
    The first settler in Somerset was Daniel Rice, my grandfather. In 1776, he settled on the farm I now own; his nearest neighbor was in Wilmington, about 7 miles. He built himself a shanty and kept bachelor hall for two or three years. He came from Hardwick, Mass. In 1777, he was at Wilmington after his weekly supply of provision, when he heard that the British army was marching towards Bennington. Went back to his shanty, took his gun and what ammunition he had, and crossed the Green Mountain through the wilder­ness and was in the battle of Ben­nington, Aug. 16, 1777. Was in the army three months, then went to Hardwick, Mass., and stayed through the winter. The next spring he returned to Somerset, and two of his brothers with him, Percy and Simeon. Percy purchased a large tract of land, part of it in Somerset and part in what was then Wardsboro. He built in Wardsboro on the farm now occupied by Abel Johnson. He was killed by the caving in of a well he was digging near his house.

    Daniel Rice married Sally Ball from New Bradford, Mass., in 1778, built a log house in which he lived six years, then built a framed house; went on horse back to Greenfield, Mass., after his nails, which were made by hand; the clapboard were split and shaved.

    His children were: Daniel, Hazelton, David, Ephraim, Ashur, Susanah, Melinthy and Sally.

    Daniel Rice's first purchase of land was 670 acres, for which he paid $640. He afterwards purchased several hundred acres of Col. Hazeltine and ran in debt for it, which caused him trouble. He was to pay for it in cattle and sheep; a mad dog bit 20 of his cattle; they went mad and died; he was unable to meet his payments. Col. Hazeltine got a writ out against his body and sent a sheriff from Windsor to serve it. Mr. Rice heard of it and avoid­ed him by staying on the mountain west of his house the most of the time one summer. Burton was watching for him the most of the time for six months. On one occasion some of the boys saw him looking around in the woods near the house. Daniel, the oldest son, dressed himself in his father's clothes and started for the woods. Burton saw him and gave chase. Daniel managed to run around a deep mire or stump hole. Burton rushed for him, and went into the mud hole; he had consid­erable difficulty in extricating himself. When he came out he was covered with mud and slime. Daniel stood by and asked him what he was in there for; what he was after. He tried to get a clean suit to wear home, but failed, and went as he was. Never came back to serve his writ. The suit was settled by the Colonel giving Mr. Rice a longer time to make his payments.\

    I do not know why this town was called Somerset. Daniel Rice first settled and built a log house upon the great meadow. A heavy fall of rain caused the river to rise and overflow the meadow some two or three feet. Mrs. Rice and children were there alone. But Mr. Rice hastened home and with a horse brought them out safely. A saw and grist mill was built at the lower end of the meadow, but was not kept running a great length of time. Daniel Rice in a few years moved over upon the east side of the town where he lived to a good old age and died there. His son Ephraim lived upon the same farm and died there.

    George E. Rice, his son, now lives on the farm.
    No post office was ever established in Somerset until 1870. At the setting of Congress in December, 1869 a petition was sent the postmaster general to establish a post office in Somerset, and the department did establish a special post office in Somerset, Windham county, Vt. and appointed Hollis Town, Jr. postmaster. We carry and receive our mails at Searsburg post office. The first mail was carried the fourth day of March, 1870.

    Dear Bob, Thank you for responding. Since I sent you my inquiry, I have been able to obtain a copy of the Hawley Town Record. On p 114 is a listing of the children of ?Moses Rice and Molly his wife? who were born in Hawley. Both of the children named Zelotus are shown plainly as sons. Rebecca Rice b. 13 July 1801 Zelotus Rice b. 19 Mar 1803, d. 11 Nov 1809 Moses Rice b. 6 Dec 1805 Phebe Rice b. 15 Jul 1809 Zelotus Rice b. 8 Jun 1811 Marietta Rice b 10 Aug 1813 Roana Rice b. 10 May 1816 Levi Allen Rice b. 28 Sep 1818 Abigail Rice b. 4 Apr 1821 John Winslow Rice b. 29 Apr 1823 At the bottom of that page is an entry (illeg. 1st initial) Ruth Rice died 26 Aug 1830. The mother of Moses Rice, the father of this family, was named Ruth Pierce. I have her dates as b. 1745 Charlemont, Franklin County, MA; d. 25 Sep 1830, but perhaps this is her. Page 115 of the Hawley Town Record lists five children of ?David (or Daniel?) Rice and Sally, his wife,? and after a gap, a couple more entries I can?t make out?perhaps showing some deaths. Copies of these records can be obtained from Virginia Gabert, Town of Hawley, 8 Pudding Hollow Road, Hawley, MA 01339. Interested persons can contact me for the descendents of Zelotus Rice (b. 8 Jun 1811), who I am now convinced is my 3rd great grandfather.
