Thank you Sue and Gerry for all the information. 

The suicide of Thomas Rice is indeed very sad to read.

Have found my first lead into Bridget Agnes Rice nee Tuohy, she was from Potumna in County Galway.

Hello Inquirer007 

Welcome to Rootschat.   Thank you for the information regarding the Rice family,  my apologies for the misspelling of the Tuohy name.

Would love to hear from you again.

Hi,
There is a photo of Thomas Rice's grave in Mount Morgan on this web site -

I have been doing some articles on the graves here in Mount Morgan for a few months now.  All so very sad.

Regards,
