Nellie Victoria Rice

22 Aug 1982 – 19 Aug 1894


Nellie V Rice was the infant daughter of John Richard “Johnny” and Hattie P. McDaniel

Born 22 Aug 1892

Died  19 Aug 1894

Buried at Sunset Cemetery, Cullison, Pratt, Kansas

She has two stones.  The first one has Nellie Victoria dau of J. R. & H. P. Rice died Aug 19, 1894. Age 1 Yr 11M 24 D.  Inscription “God takes the life he gave.”

This stone had fallen over and was kept at the farm home of J. R. Rice, until about 2001.

Then the stone was returned to the cemetery to sit  beside the second stone for Nellie, in the Rice Plot.  The second stone has Nellie V born Aug. 22, 1892 and died 16 Aug 1894. Since this was put in years later, the 19th is the more probable date.

No matter whether she died on the 19th or 16th, she died at a very young age.
