  • Note: By Steve Holzheauser: H.R. No. 731; 74R11313 SAJ-D; R E S O L U T I O N
    WHEREAS, The Texas House of Representatives is proud to commemorate the dedication of a Texas historical marker at the Clinton Cemetery, near Cuero, paying tribute to one of the original daughters of the Republic of Texas, Elizabeth Wilson Rice; and
    WHEREAS, Born in Ireland in 1805, this courageous woman immigrated to the United States around 1818 and settled in Ohio, where she married Thomas McClure Rice in 1824; and
    WHEREAS, Well regarded by all who knew them as decent and upstanding citizens, the couple raised four fine children and established themselves as dedicated and hardworking members of the community; and
    WHEREAS, Inspired by General Sam Houston's impassioned call for volunteers, the Rices moved their young family to the Lone Star State in 1836 to fight for the freedom of Texas; and
    WHEREAS, Exhibiting the energy, grit, and determination that have made our state strong and great, these pioneer Texians settled and farmed near Little Brushy Creek in DeWitt County, where their fifth child was born in 1842; and
    WHEREAS, Later that year Mrs. Rice was widowed when her husband died while fighting at the Battle of Salado Creek; in 1848, he was posthumously honored for his meritorious service when he was enshrined with other Texian soldiers on Monument Hill in LaGrange, with Senator Sam Houston, of the newly annexed State of Texas officiating; and
    WHEREAS, Mrs. Rice marshaled her incredible fortitude, energy, and bravery to raise her family alone and continued to reside in DeWitt County until her passing in 1859, and she is believed to be buried in Clinton Cemetery; and
    WHEREAS, Mr. and Mrs. Rice were people of unsurpassed strength, courage, and compassion who made great sacrifices for the good of our state, and their legacy of heroism and bravery continues to serve as a source of pride and inspiration not only for their many descendants but for all the people of Texas; now, therefore, be it
    RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 74th Texas Legislature hereby commemorate the dedication of a Texas historical marker in memory of Elizabeth Wilson Rice at the Clinton Cemetery and commend the citizens of Cuero for their outstanding efforts to preserve an important part of Texas history. on 8 May 1995.
  • Land Transaction*: The 1850 Lavaca County Census lists Elizabeth Rice, age 44, born Tennessee, owner of real estate valued at $150. With her in household number 96, are William B. White, age 18 and James H. Rice, age 7. Elizabeth and James are found in the 1860 Lavaca County Census, household number 81. Elizabeth’s age is 53, no occupation listed, and James is 17, a laborer. Also on this census in household number 363 is James Rice, age 29, with wife Sarah and two children, John, age 5, and Virginia, age 3/12, all born in Tennessee.

    Elizabeth Rice signed her mark on the application for land grant Certificate No. 2, and swore that she emigrated in 1838 and was head of a family since her residence in the Republic. This was witnessed by J. B. White and Patrick Dowlearn in the town of Cameron in DeWitt County. Cameron was the first county seat of this county formed in 1846.

    After carefully reviewing the land grant papers from the Texas General Land Office, it is my conclusion that Elizabeth Rice residing in Lavaca County is not our Elizabeth Rice, widow of Thomas McClure Rice.
