Charles Edward Rice, Jr. was born in 1936. The state of Montana returned my request

in the 1960's - perhaps in Illinois. Any help or leads (even a hint) would be appreciated.

1872 - 1924
James Hazzard WOOD b. 7 Sept 1845 in Marion Co Mo. He wed Mary Ellen LAIR 29 Feb
1872, likely in Marion Co Mo. James Hazzard WOOD died 14 Feb 1924 in Montana. He
was the son of David WOOD b.14 Sept 1814 in Tn & Jane Calvert KAYLOR b.20 Sept
1822 in Va. I suspect James moved to Montana very soon after marriage as there is
no further info on him. The rest of his family is well documented.
