     Sarah Rice was born on 16 August 1751 at Upton, MA.1,2 She was the daughter of Beriah Rice and Mary Goodenow. Sarah Rice married Elias Wheelock, son of Obediah Wheelock and Martha Sumner, circa 1766 at Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS. In the 1768 census, Elias Wheelock had two males and one female in his household, all American. It seems likely that Elias and Sarah had been married for about two years and the second male was their first son as Sarah Rice's younger brother Joseph was listed separately in the 1768 census. Their first daughter must have been born in or after 1768, not 1766 as given by Ms McCormick. By the 1770 census, Elias had four Americans in his household, most likely Elias, Sarah, and two offspring.3,1 Sarah Rice died after 1821 as she was named in her husband's will.4
     Her married name was Wheelock. The birth order of Sarah's children is uncertain. Your author has attempted some order based on the dates of marriages of children and birth dates of grandchildren where known. Also the census for 1768 & 1770 that suggest that there could be not more than two children born before spring 1770.

In her 1975 manuscript, Ms McCormick has Sarah's birth date as 15 June 1824. Because her father was deeply religious, this was too soon after her parent's marriage.

     Sarah Rice was the daughter of Ebenezer Rice and Tabitha Balcom.2 Sarah Rice married Frederick Balser, son of Peter Balser, on 27 November 1822 at Saint Lukes Anglican Church, Annapolis Royal, Annapolis Co, NS; in the presence of Jonas and Levi Rice, by John Millidge, Missionary. Sarah Rice was of the Parish of Annapolis and Frederick Balser was of the Parish of Wilmot.3
     Her married name was Balser.3 It is likely that Frederick was the son of Peter Baltzor and brother of Dorothy who married Sarah's brother Jonas. If so, this was probably the second marriage for Frederick who first married Alice Oliver.4

     Sarah Rice was born on 28 February 1753 at Westborough, MA.1,3,2,4 She was the daughter of Ebenezer Rice and Anna Rice. Sarah Rice and Aaron Hayden published their marriage intention on 12 May 1777 at Conway, MA; both of Conway.3,2,5
     Her married name was Hayden. Your authors note that there is an uncertainty in the identity of the Sarah Rice who married Aaron Hayden. There is compelling evidence that this Sarah (WRN 1002) emigrated to Nova Scotia with her parents in 1760, was in her father's household in the 1768 and 1770 census at Annapolis. The Fairn family history in Annapolis County, NS claims this Sarah Rice as their ancestor. Because two of Sarah Rice brothers were living in Conway in the mid 1770s, your authors have followed the line that this Sarah Rice married Aaron Hayden. We are continuing our search for compelling evidence that supports either Aaron Hayden (at Conway) or Benjamin Fairn (at Annapolis).
