By Marilyn Cox, Hawkins, TX, corrected by Jynelle Caffey:

 

Grice was a small community near the Wood and Upshur County lines, named for

John J. Grice who was the first postmaster. He also owned a store in the

community. He and his wife Lucinda Johnson Grice had three sons and four

daughters. The daughters were Ann, Mary, Sarah Lucinda and Rosa. The story

told by a number of family members about Taylor and Eli Tucker marrying the

older girls and following their deaths, marrying the younger sisters, is not

all true. Francis Ann married an Echols and moved to Oklahoma. Taylor's

first wife was not a Grice, but after her death, he did marry Rosa Grice.

Eli Tucker did marry first Mary J. Grice and following her death he married

Sarah Lucinda. His marriages are recorded in Wood County Marriage Records.

Also, see PAF files of the LDS Church.

 

The Tuckers were said to be part German and the Grices part Cherokee, but no

proof of this Indian heritage has been found by family researchers.

 

Sherry Willis Johnson:

John J. Grice is buried in Oklahoma. He is said to have gone there where his

daughter, Ann Tucker Echols, lived to work cutting cross ties. He became

ill and died there. He is said to be buried with the Echols family members

at Holly Creek Cemetery. According to Clive, the Red River was at flood

stage at the time of his death and his body could not be returned to Texas.

Huel C. Tucker, Upshur County Texas, A Sesquentenial History, THE GRICE

FAMILY, Taylor Publishing Co., Inc., Dallas, TX, 1996, pp 143-4:

 

John Jackson Grice was born about 1834 in Meriwether County, Georgia, on a

farm about five miles west of Warm Springs. He was the oldest child of

William W. and Lucinda Gray Grice who were married in Pike County, Georgia,

in 1832. The Grices lived on a sixty-eight acre farm which was one third of

Lot 115, 1828 Georgia Land Lottery, granted to the orphans of Gabriel Grice,

who lived in Walton County. Court records of Meriwether County show that

William was the oldest of three orphans: William, Nathaniel and Nancy.

 

William Grice was born about 1810 in South Carolina or Georgia, and Lucinda

Gray was born about 1810 in Georgia. She was the daughter of Seaborn B.Gray

who was a state senator from Tallapoosa County, Alabama, in the 1840s. Prior

to 1850, William and Lucinda moved to Chambers County, Alabama, and by 1860

he had followed his brothers, Nathaniel, and Seaborn B. Gray to Tallapoosa

County. However, his oldest two sons, John and James N., had married by then

and remained in Chambers County.

 

John married Lucinda I. Johnston, daughter of Oliver Johnston, on January 9,

1854, at the home of her father. Lucinda was born about 1833 in Jones or

DeKalb County, Georgia.

 

About 1867, John Grice and his father moved their families to Texas and

settled on the east side of Wood County. In 1883 John and Lucinda Grice

bought a tract of land at Hammel's Chapel adjacent to their daughter and

son-in-law, Sarah and Eli Tucker. John built a store and operated it until

about 1905. In 1891 a post office was authorized for that area, and it was

put in Grice's store with John Grice as postmaster. During the time the post

office existed, the community became know as "Grice" and after the post

office was closed, the name continued to be used.

 

In researching her family genealogy, my wife, Clarine, and I interviewed Mrs.

Florence and her sister, Miss Schrum,* in Rhonesboro for information on the

Florence family. When they discovered that I was a great-grandson of John

Grice, they wanted to talk about him and his store. One of them said, "We

knew him better than our own father. Every day after school we stopped at

the Grice store to buy candy."

 

(*Probably Mrs. Mack Florence and Ms. Era Schrum who was an old maid school

teacher, my teacher at Harmony, 1943-44? There were two Florence families,

one on either side of the road. One was a lawyer in Gilmer, I think. Mother

taught at Rhonesboro when I was in the first and second grade, before we

moved to Grice. We lived in a house near the Florences and Schrums. Also,

Uncle Jewel Byrd's in-laws, the LaRues, lived on the same road which was on the way to the school house.)

 

Childlren born to John and Lucinda Grice were: William, born 1855, Frances

Ann, born 1857, and Mary Jane, born 1859 in Chambers County, Alabama; Sarah

Lucinda, born July 4, 1861 and John N., born 1862 in Tallapoosa County,

Alabama; Rose Ella, born November 29, 1871 and Edward Gray, born 1873 in

Wood County, Texas.

 

William and Frances Ann, who married Sam Echols, moved to Oklahoma near

Broken Bow. Mary Jane married Eli Jackson Tucker in 1880 in Wood County and

died within a few months. Eli then married Mary Jane's sister, Sarah

Lucinda, and they had twelve children, several of whom were born at Grice.

They eventually settled at Honey Creek in Wood County near the Upshur line.

 

The twelve children of Eli and Sarah Lucinda Grice Tucker were Icey Dora

Moore, Mary Jane (Mamie) Byrd, Pearl (Pearlie) Moore, William Jackson,

George, twins Levi and Leva Killian, Uriah Taylor, Minnie Minerva Shaffer,

Rosa Ritchie (sic Richie), Isaac and Loraine Bennet (sic Lorene Bennett),

Mary Jane and her husband, Abraham S. Byrd, owned the Byrd Pottery near

Rhonesboro until they retired and their son John Byrd moved it to Tyler.

 

In her later years, Sarah Grice Tucker spent most of her time piecing quilts

which she gave to her grandchildren. By the time she died in 1944, Sarah had

given four quilts to each of her sixty or more grandchildren.

 

Rose Ella Grice married Uriah Taylor Tucker, brother of Eli, and raised their

family in Usphur County. Their children were John, Anderson, Delia Loyless

Lona Dunkel (?), Nunie Welchel, Ester Choate, Ella Pynes and probably others.

 

Edward Gray Grice married (1) Hester Elizabeth Young and their children were

Carl Edward, Mary Lucinda Gist and Lela Frances Williamson. He married (2)

Mrs. Maude May Edwards Barker and their children were Edward, Glenover

Bryant and Aubra Gray.

 

Lucinda Grice died May 23, 1890, and is buried in the Grice Cemetery beside

her daughter, Rose Ella, and Uriah Taylor Tucker. Lucinda is the only person

of the Grice name buried there. John J. Grice died in 1907 while visiting

his daughter in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. The Red River was at flood state, and

his body could not be returned to Grice, so he was buried on the Echols'

farm near Broken Bow.

 

The author, Huel C. Tucker, is the son of Uriah Taylor and Vera Mitchell

Tucker, and the grandson of Eli and Sarah Grice Tucker. He married Clarine

Smith, daughter of David Franklin and Myrtis Castle Smith of the Indian Rock

community on June 6, 1948. The six sons of Taylor and Vera Tucker are Harold

C., Gerald Delbert, Huel Clive, Norman Taylor, Derry Ernest and Stephen Dwayne.

 

---------------------------------------

 

The records of the National Archives, U. S. Postal Service, Volume 71B, ca

1890-1904, show that John J. Grice was appointed postmaster of Grice on 28

April 1890. His appointment was extended several times and ended on 2

August 1901.

By Marilyn Cox, Hawkins, TX, corrected by Jynelle Caffey:

 

Grice was a small community near the Wood and Upshur County lines, named for

John J. Grice who was the first postmaster. He also owned a store in the

community. He and his wife Lucinda Johnson Grice had three sons and four

daughters. The daughters were Ann, Mary, Sarah Lucinda and Rosa. The story

told by a number of family members about Taylor and Eli Tucker marrying the

older girls and following their deaths, marrying the younger sisters, is not

all true. Francis Ann married an Echols and moved to Oklahoma. Taylor's

first wife was not a Grice, but after her death, he did marry Rosa Grice.

Eli Tucker did marry first Mary J. Grice and following her death he married

Sarah Lucinda. His marriages are recorded in Wood County Marriage Records.

Also, see PAF files of the LDS Church.

 

The Tuckers were said to be part German and the Grices part Cherokee, but no

proof of this Indian heritage has been found by family researchers.

 

Sherry Willis Johnson:

John J. Grice is buried in Oklahoma. He is said to have gone there where his

daughter, Ann Tucker Echols, lived to work cutting cross ties. He became

ill and died there. He is said to be buried with the Echols family members

at Holly Creek Cemetery. According to Clive, the Red River was at flood

stage at the time of his death and his body could not be returned to Texas.

See his family history below.

Huel C. Tucker, Upshur County Texas, A Sesquentenial History, THE GRICE

FAMILY, Taylor Publishing Co., Inc., Dallas, TX, 1996, pp 143-4:

 

John Jackson Grice was born about 1834 in Meriwether County, Georgia, on a

farm about five miles west of Warm Springs. He was the oldest child of

William W. and Lucinda Gray Grice who were married in Pike County, Georgia,

in 1832. The Grices lived on a sixty-eight acre farm which was one third of

Lot 115, 1828 Georgia Land Lottery, granted to the orphans of Gabriel Grice,

who lived in Walton County. Court records of Meriwether County show that

William was the oldest of three orphans: William, Nathaniel and Nancy.

 

William Grice was born about 1810 in South Carolina or Georgia, and Lucinda

Gray was born about 1810 in Georgia. She was the daughter of Seaborn B.Gray

who was a state senator from Tallapoosa County, Alabama, in the 1840s. Prior

to 1850, William and Lucinda moved to Chambers County, Alabama, and by 1860

he had followed his brothers, Nathaniel, and Seaborn B. Gray to Tallapoosa

County. However, his oldest two sons, John and James N., had married by then

and remained in Chambers County.

 

John married Lucinda I. Johnston, daughter of Oliver Johnston, on January 9,

1854, at the home of her father. Lucinda was born about 1833 in Jones or

DeKalb County, Georgia.

 

About 1867, John Grice and his father moved their families to Texas and

settled on the east side of Wood County. In 1883 John and Lucinda Grice

bought a tract of land at Hammel's Chapel adjacent to their daughter and

son-in-law, Sarah and Eli Tucker. John built a store and operated it until

about 1905. In 1891 a post office was authorized for that area, and it was

put in Grice's store with John Grice as postmaster. During the time the post

office existed, the community became know as "Grice" and after the post

office was closed, the name continued to be used.

 

In researching her family genealogy, my wife, Clarine, and I interviewed Mrs.

Florence and her sister, Miss Schrum,* in Rhonesboro for information on the

Florence family. When they discovered that I was a great-grandson of John

Grice, they wanted to talk about him and his store. One of them said, "We

knew him better than our own father. Every day after school we stopped at

the Grice store to buy candy."

 

(*Probably Mrs. Mack Florence and Ms. Era Schrum who was an old maid school

teacher, my teacher at Harmony, 1943-44? There were two Florence families,

one on either side of the road. One was a lawyer in Gilmer, I think. Mother

taught at Rhonesboro when I was in the first and second grade, before we

moved to Grice. We lived in a house near the Florences and Schrums. Also,

Uncle Jewel Byrd's in-laws, the LaRues, lived on the same road which was on the way to the school house.)

 

Childlren born to John and Lucinda Grice were: William, born 1855, Frances

Ann, born 1857, and Mary Jane, born 1859 in Chambers County, Alabama; Sarah

Lucinda, born July 4, 1861 and John N., born 1862 in Tallapoosa County,

Alabama; Rose Ella, born November 29, 1871 and Edward Gray, born 1873 in

Wood County, Texas.

 

William and Frances Ann, who married Sam Echols, moved to Oklahoma near

Broken Bow. Mary Jane married Eli Jackson Tucker in 1880 in Wood County and

died within a few months. Eli then married Mary Jane's sister, Sarah

Lucinda, and they had twelve children, several of whom were born at Grice.

They eventually settled at Honey Creek in Wood County near the Upshur line.

 

The twelve children of Eli and Sarah Lucinda Grice Tucker were Icey Dora

Moore, Mary Jane (Mamie) Byrd, Pearl (Pearlie) Moore, William Jackson,

George, twins Levi and Leva Killian, Uriah Taylor, Minnie Minerva Shaffer,

Rosa Ritchie (sic Richie), Isaac and Loraine Bennet (sic Lorene Bennett),

Mary Jane and her husband, Abraham S. Byrd, owned the Byrd Pottery near

Rhonesboro until they retired and their son John Byrd moved it to Tyler.

 

In her later years, Sarah Grice Tucker spent most of her time piecing quilts

which she gave to her grandchildren. By the time she died in 1944, Sarah had

given four quilts to each of her sixty or more grandchildren.

 

Rose Ella Grice married Uriah Taylor Tucker, brother of Eli, and raised their

family in Usphur County. Their children were John, Anderson, Delia Loyless

Lona Dunkel (?), Nunie Welchel, Ester Choate, Ella Pynes and probably others.

 

Edward Gray Grice married (1) Hester Elizabeth Young and their children were

Carl Edward, Mary Lucinda Gist and Lela Frances Williamson. He married (2)

Mrs. Maude May Edwards Barker and their children were Edward, Glenover

Bryant and Aubra Gray.

 

Lucinda Grice died May 23, 1890, and is buried in the Grice Cemetery beside

her daughter, Rose Ella, and Uriah Taylor Tucker. Lucinda is the only person

of the Grice name buried there. John J. Grice died in 1907 while visiting

his daughter in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. The Red River was at flood state, and

his body could not be returned to Grice, so he was buried on the Echols'

farm near Broken Bow.

 

The author, Huel C. Tucker, is the son of Uriah Taylor and Vera Mitchell

Tucker, and the grandson of Eli and Sarah Grice Tucker. He married Clarine

Smith, daughter of David Franklin and Myrtis Castle Smith of the Indian Rock

community on June 6, 1948. The six sons of Taylor and Vera Tucker are Harold

C., Gerald Delbert, Huel Clive, Norman Taylor, Derry Ernest and Stephen Dwayne.

Johnie remembers cutting cross ties with his father. He says his father could cut 100 ties a day. A long day I'm sure and paid very little. Johnie worked most of his career for Blackburns Tree Service which evolved into Blackburns Nursery and Landscape.

Such a valued employee that after he retired they would call him long distance to ask for his expertise.
