My mother was a Kice whose family came from Dover, N.J.
According to the History of Morris Country all Kices are descended from a Peter Kice who was a Hessian soldier hired by the British in the War of Independence. After several defeats, Peter Kice and many others, deserted and settled in around Wharton, N.J. The farming area there was known as Germany Valley until WWI, when it was changed to Long Valley. As a young child I can remember visiting the farm of a relative's in N.J. He was a fine old gentlman named Lyman Kice who had one daughter named Laura. My great grandfather was a country doctor in the region. His name was Henry W. Kice, 1860-1935. His son was also a doctor who practiced on Long Island, N.Y. His name was Luther Holden Kice. My mother followed in her father's footsteps and became a doctor. Her name was Janith Stewart Kice 1911-1998. There were no male offspring as far as I know. I do have a geneology of the N.J. Kices written by a cousin, Mildred Kice Wilson. I would love to fill the gaps between 1777 and 1860. I only wish my mother was still alive. She wanted so much to find other Kices.
