I am trying to find ancestors of Jacob Rhodes 1761-1824 and Susan (Susannah) Davis. From what I understand, they were not actually married but had a child, Jacob Rhodes Davis born just before or around the death of his father in 1824. I have seen your name on many websites ex. ancestry.com. I do not have a subscription to ancestry.com so I could not message you there. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Comments:
Henry Allen Rhodes is my great grandfather. He married Laura Ann Breece. According to his death certificate, he was born in Sneads Ferry, NC, he is buried at Yopp Cemetery there. His parents were Henry Rhodes and Betsy Edens. I cannot find any information on the parents in Onslow Co. Am hoping there is a connection with the RHodes family of Jones Co. I found a Henry A. Rhodes of Jones Co who died during the Civil War--he could possibly be Henry Allen's father but I don't know. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Colonel Henry Rhodes daughter Henrietta Rhodes married Captain James Foy. James Foy bought a plantation in Scotts Hill in Pender County North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. He built a house there and called in Popular Grove. The original house burnt down and was rebuilt in about 1850. That house was a tourist attraction at one time. I am descended from James and Henrietta R. Foy. I am named after their grandson Joseph Mumford Foy. I would like to know more about Col. Henry Rhodes.

My grandfather was Walter Jones Rhodes Sr of Jones County NC. My father, who passed away June 2004, was Walter Jones Rhodes Jr of Dade County, Florida. <br> <br>I had the pleasure of meeting many of the Rhodes clan at a reunion some years ago (pre-internet), and particularly recall my dad's cousins Bobby (who looked so much like Walter Jr they could have been brothers) and Walter Ray (who I understand was named after my grandfather Walter). Also, there was another cousin who remembered my dad with affection because as a young man he gave him a quarter so he could go to the movies with the other kids. <br> <br>Anyway, I am so happy to have found the family website! If there is any news of an upcoming reunion, please let me know so my sister Susan and I can attend.

Jacob Rhodes of Robeson Co NC was the first county Surveyor. He layed off the lots for the town of Lumberton in 1788, and did the first county map circa 1791. He married Rachel Clinton in 1800, who died in 1804. He had a brother Joseph T. Rhodes, who also was here in Robeson Co NC. <br> <br>I am trying to determine if Jacob Rhodes of Robeson Co NC went to Jones Co NC by 1806, and then return to Robeson Co NC where he died in the 1820s. In 1806 Joseph T. Rhodes was agent for Jacob Rhodes of Jones Co NC in the claim to receive Jacob Rhodes claim for land for his deceased brother Henry Rhodes. <br> <br>Can you help? <br> <br>Sam West <br>Lumberton, Robeson Co NC

I have in my records that Susan Carolina Rhodes was married to William Koonce of Pollocksville. They are buried in the Pollocksville Cemetery; this Susan has the same date of birth as is given in your Bible records. I found information on the Rhodes on the Internet and there was a note that a family researcher had found that Susan married William Koonce. One of their children was my great, great grandmother Nancy Koonce. Amos Koonce married Susan Hargett and they had two sons, Zachery Taylor and Flavius Joseph. (Found in Jones County Genealogy book) The second Amos Koonce, son of Zachery married Zora Gilbert and their daughter Inez Koonce married Malvern Madison Banks who is a distant cousin in my Banks lineage. Would like to compare sources and make sure I have this right---I was so certain I had the right information.

Hey Cousin Sloan, you just keep getting better & better on your sites.
Henry Rhodes & Col. Henry Rhodes, both d. in Onslow have often been confused with Henry Rhodes who left will in Dobbs Co. I feel like most Rhodes of Jones come from Henry of Dobbs. But at least two great-grandchildren of Col. Henry Rhodes and their families lived in Jones Co. in Comfort-Trenton area. They were another Henry Rhodes & Capt. Edward Haines Rhodes. I am not sure about Henry Rhodes b. in Jones Co. & moved to Sneads Ferry, enlisted in Onslow & died in Civil War. Thanks Sloan.

Dear friend:

My father was Troy Richard Rhodes (1901-1981). He was a farmer and a father of a family of seven in Northwest Arkansas (Bentonville). He was born near Crossroads, Arkansas and lived in Izard County many years before moving with my mother (Ruby J. Dillard)to Benton County. My father's dad was, according to family oral tradition, "Alexander Rhodes" who was born either in Arkansas or Tennessee in the 19th century. He was married to
Margie or "Maggie" Jones [later M. Majors ater her second marriage to a Mr. Jim Majors, my step-grandfather]. All of these individuals lived originally in either Izard County or Stone County, Arkansas. Presumably, grandmother "Rhodes"
(Maggie Jones[Majors]) is buried in Calico Rock or Pineville, Arkansas and Alexander Rhodes, her first husband, is also buried there. Otherwise, I know very little about my Rhodes ancestors. I would certainly be thrilled to learn more.

Sloan, you and I have talked before, but wanted to add what I have learned. Dock Rhodes, though no relation by blood to my grandmother, Erma Winnafred Turner, was always claimed by her as her first cousin. She and I traveled to the Rhodes reunion when I was a teenager old enough to drive her. Rilly Winnaford Heath Turner was her grandmother, being the wife of James Becton Turner. I have been told through the decades that a Becton md. into the Turner family back in the 1600's and in each generation after that, a John Becton, James Becton, or John James Becton Turner was listed. If you have run across anything to confirm this, would appreciate your letting me know. The first Turner I can find named John was md. to Mary Tomlin and migrated from Isle of Wight VA to Jones Co., NC. They had 12 or 13 children, and the last was born in NC. I have a lot of info on the Turner line and will share it with you if you wish.

John Rhodes came to IN with brother and family or with his parents by 1819, lived in Owen Co, IN. John married Sarilda Steele in Owen Co, IN. We have almost complete family listing from John to the present day. However, no one can find a definite connection back.

My personal "gut feeling" is Joseph Rhodes who built a home for his family on Rhodes Creek in Owen/Morgan Co's in IN was either John's father or older brother. I have no proof and so far I can go no further back. The common family names for sons were Joseph, John, William. [Twins, especially boys, are very common in our line.] Hope we can make a connection.
