Just looking for any kin that may be out there.

Rees, Reese, Reece and the modern spellings of the original Welsh name Rhys also Ap Rhys (son of Rhys). Rhys means "enthusiasim."

I will add more information as I can.

I also understand Rice is a possible English spelling of the Rhys name.

I am a descendant of Deacon Edmund Rice of the Massachusetts Bay Colony on my mother's side of the family,

though Y-DNA of male descendants of Edmund do not indicate that his ancestors were Celtic.
Data show that Y-chromosome markers (Y-STR) from known descendants of Edmund are consistent with Haplogroup I1 (DYS455 = 8; YCA-IIa,b = 19, 21)[26] with likely Anglo-Saxon or Norse/Scandinavian origin (DYS462 = 13); lacking strong specific haplotype characteristics of Haplogroup R1b consistent with Celtic Welsh, Briton, or Irish ancestry predominantly found in other Rice family lines Edmund Rice (1638)- Genetic Research.
