Oh, I also found where Ms Effie is buried, it's about two miles from me & I pass that cemetery, Oak Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery just about every other day. There is just a marker, no tombstone.
I will be visiting her often from now on.

I really hope there are still folks reading this guestbook as I think it is so important to keep this beautiful history going.
My next step is to email Mr John T Rhodes & also sign up for his newsletter, in the meantime, I found something so special that I just had to pop back in here & share.

The link is
search.ncarts.org/heritage_details.php?id=11203&type

The article mentions Mrs Effie Rhodes Bell & Mrs Hazel Rhodes Reece & their wonderful quilt work.

Hello beautiful Rhodes family, in the search of the Old-Lee King Cemetery in Onslow County I've come up with your wonderful history & beautiful family. I can say beautiful with confidence since I have seen many family pictures, all of them black & white. This only left me thirsty for more knowledge & wanting to know what those family reunions were like.
But for now I am intrigued with the location of this cemetery.
I've come up with many family plots & while Onslow County is filled with them & they hold so much history, it is also sad that with development & growth of our county this history is vanishing right along with those buried there.
Any information is greatly appreciated,
Thank you!!!

Comments:
I am very curious about our ancestry and my daughter, Stephanie, has done a little searching, even some of Durant Hatch Rhodes' slaves who took the name of Rhodes. Mrs Daisy Rhodes Porter[deceased] was a decendant of one of his slaves and would always call us her cousins because we used to all be like family.

Comments:
My grandmother was Elizabeth Rhodes Humphrey. Her parents were Woodhouse Rhodes and Fanny Marshburn. His father was Henry Rhodes and mother was Emeline Hardison, so I guess we go back to the first Henry Rhodes who was born 1686 in Virginia?

John T(Tim/Timmy)Rhodes is one of my favorite cousins.
Hope to see some new people at the Reunion this year.
I need some addresses that are not on the Southwest Rhodes Clan database to send the flyer/invite to. Last year I used the picture of Uncle Johnny, Uncle Ivey, and Papa Solomon. I would like to have another photo of the siblings of Durant Hatch Rhodes if possible. Our reunions have mostly been the decendents of Solomon and Cora Florence Rhodes with decendents of Ivey and Johnnie coming to join us. Papa, Mabry Rhodes(son of Solomon) used to go annually to Rhodestown to a family reunion there too.

So far as I know this is my oldest ancestor that I can trace back, on my father's side. I have been trying to
find out my great grandmother's maiden name on my mother's side, her married name was Concetta Campagna, but no luck
at all so far. I'll keep trying though. Honestly, I was
beginning to think my father's ancestors had all been in
the CIA and someone had erased their existence. If nothing else our ancestry proves that persistence pays off. Now if
I can practice what I preach I'll be okay. Hello to Tim Rhodes of Onslow County, and many thanks to Sloan Mason for making this possible. By the way Sloan, have we met? Your name sounds familiar to me, but then it might be because I
went to high school with a Tammy Mason in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
