Orice was a plural wife of Reuben Miller who crossed the plains in the Gully/Spencer Company of 1849 with two wagons and nine souls. Orice appears in the federal census 1850 as "Orisa" Miller living at Great Salt Lake City in Utah Territory with a one-year-old daughter named Mary E. who was born in "Deseret."
