Hannah Rice

"The year 1709 was a time of sorrow for the Rice family of Concord for, in addition to Richard himself, there died also two of his daughters (Mary Rice and Abigail Reade), a daughter-in-law (Hannah Rice), a granddaughter (Abigail Davis), and two grandsons (Joseph Rice and Dr. Jacob Reade), to say nothing of the daughter Hannah Willcockson whose death must have occurred between 1708 and 1712.
Children (order not chronological):

iii. HANNAH, named second among surviving daughters in her father's will in 1708 as Hannah Willcockson, received a bequest of twenty shillings "in corne or other pay" which may or may not suggest that she was residing near home. She has, however, been identified as Hannah, wife of SAMUEL2 WILLCOCKSON (William1), b. in Stratford, Conn., about 1640, d. intestate in Simsbury, Conn., 12 March 1712/134 (c. R. Manwaring, "Digest of the Probate Records of Hartford District", vol. 2, p. 331). Since no reference was made to Samuel's widow, Hannah had presumably died between 1708, when she is mentioned in her father's will as living, and 12 March 1712/13. How Hannah Rice became acquainted with her husband does not appear, but there can be no doubt that this is the correct family (see D. L. Jacobus, "Old Fairfield Families", vol. 1, p. 693, and, particularly, supplement thereto, p. 38).
