Sergeant Nelson J Rice
Company B, 4th Provisional Rgmt, Enrolled MO Militia
Rice was born on March 31, 1837. Information regarding Rice’s service with Company B was very sketchy. Wikipedia indicates that the unit “was a part-time force whose primary purpose was to serve as garrison and infrastructure guards”. The unit was organized in 1863. One Civil War source indicates that Rice served until August 31, 1863.
He died on February 1, 1931 at the age of 93 years. He is buried in the Pawnee City Cemetery in Pawnee City (Pawnee County), Nebraska.
