I am researching Lemuel Sparhawk Rice who moved from Maine to Tyrrell Co, NC, in the early 1840s to teach at Columbia Academy. He married Sarah E.________, born in Bertie Co. abt. 1816. They lived in Colerain, NC. They named sons William Cherry and Joseph Dukes. I would like to know Sarah's maiden name and also what happened to their oldest child, John W. Rice. Would also like to know more about the Columbia Academy. Lemuel was in the Civil War. Went in at the age of 56. I believe William also served.
