I am searching for my Rhodes ancestors but to date have
made no progress.

My great,great,great grandmother was Margaret "Peggy' Rhodes,
b. April 27, 1811. She married Louis H. Hayles on January 7, 1836
- possibly in Alabama.

One of their children was my great great grand father Brown Hayles b.
December 10, 1848. Brown died in Eliska (Monroe County, Alabama) and
is buried there.

I have found nothing more about her parents or other ancestors.

I am seeking info re one of my ancestors, John Rhodes (or perhaps Roads). He
was born in Philadelphia in 1755 and died in Byram Township, Susssex Co., NJ
in 1826, I believe his wife's given name was Eunice. He served in the 5th
Pennsylvania Regiment during the revolution. His son, John Jr., probated his
will in the Orphans' Court in 1827. John Jr. married an Elizabeth Baldwin.
Their daughter, Sarah Ann, married Rev. John Fowler and their daughter, Sally
(born abt 1840) married my great-great grandfather, Fred Hass, in Rock Island,


Jacob Rode came to this country around 1851 from
Germany ( possibly Prussia area) and settled in
N.Y. state, in the Port Byron, Throop area. We
do not know his wife's name or if he had any other
children other than young Jacob Rode who was about
14 at the time of immigration.(Birthdate 22,Jan. 1837)
As young Jacob grew up he Married a Cynthia Saunders of
Port Byron area. They were married on 29, Aug. 1864,
and somewhere about this point Jacob changed his name
to Roth.
At some point Jacob fought in the Civil War with a N.Y.
Group. Later Jacob and Cynthia Moved to Rock Island,
Illinios Where they had 3 children Robert, Idea, and
Maggie. Idea and Maggie both died at an early age.
Jacob, Cynthia, and Robert then moved to Montcalm
County, Michigan
We would really appreciate any info from anyone who
could shed some more light on the New York Time or

*Descendents spell the name with an "e"

The Rhoads name of the family tree has been traced as far as Jacob
Rhoads, thought to have been born in Grayson Co., Ky. about 1800. This is
based upon a claim submitted to the U.S. Government by his son John Rhoads's
two children which listed his place and date of birth. Jacob's wife, Susan
Skaggs, was the daughter of Richard Skaggs (born abt.1781 in Washington Co.,
Virginia) the son of Aaron Skaggs and Sarah Lyons. Aaron was one of
the Skaggs brothers who since before the Revolutionary War had been "Long
Hunters" from east of the Applachians who had come into Kentucky to trap
during the winter and take furs back in the spring. Jacob's antecedents
may have been from the line of Henry Rhoads of Bedford Co., Pa. When a
general migration of them moved to Macoupin Co., Ill. in the 1830,
Jacob and Susan moved with them.
Henry Rhoads, Jr.'s brother who died in Muehlenberg Co.,
Kentucky in 1799 had three sons named Daniel, Jacob and John. A Jacob and
John Rhodes were listed on the 1810 & 1820 censuses. Jacob was listed as 45+
with two boys, while John was listed as between 16 to 20 with two boys listed
as 10 and under. In the 1828 Edmonson Co. Deed book, Aaron Skaggs, the
brother of Richard Skaggs sold a parcel of land to John Rhodes, and in 1836
sold another parcel to Daniel Rhodes. Daniel's daughter, Ruby Rhodes
married a Nicolas Roof in 1820.
In 1842, the son of Nicolas and Ruby, John Roof,
married Sally Skaggs, the daughter of James Skaggs, a brother of Richard
Skaggs.This would indicate the Rhoads (Rhodes) clan and the Skaggs clan had
dealings with each other. Whether any or all of the Daniel, Jacob, and John
Rhodes were connected with the Joseph Rhoads of Muhlenberg Co. is unknown.
Whether the Jacob Rhoads of Grayson county is connected to the John orJacob
Rhodes of Edmonson is likewise unknown.
In about 1836, Jacob and Susan left Macoupin Co., Ill. and moved to the
White River area in north central Arkansas where he purchased government land.
Jacob was listed in the census for 1840 with his family as being in Izard
County, Ark. When the census was taken in 1850, he and Susan had disappeared.
His son Thomas was present with his wife child, and several of the younger
children were listed with other families. Richard and John were not with
them. In 1860, all the children were in Izard County, but Jacob and Susan
were not. In 1854, in Pulaski Co., Mo. Richard Skaggs Will listed a Susan
Ravelle as an heir. It is not known if this referred to Susan Skaggs or not.
Nothing has been discovered about them since.


I am seeking information on the family of JAMES FENNER RHODES,
born on 16 April, 1822 in Providence, RI. He was the son of RICHARD RHODES
and LYDIA ?? I don't have a lot of information on this family as yet but
here is what I do have on their descendents.

James Fenner Rhodes married first, SARAH ANNE KINGMAN in either RI or OH.
He lived in Cincinnati, OH and his first son, JAMES KINGMAN RHODES was
born in Toledo, OH in 1854. He and Sarah also had a son named WILLIAM A.
RHODES. William died when he was 17.

James Kingman Rhodes married EMMA CATHERINE SERFERT (sp?) and had a least
one child, EMMA RHODES, born about 1873. James died in 1883.

James Fenner Rhodes married second, LAURA A. LYON in Cincinnati on 1 Jun
1863. The moved to Lancaster, Grant Co., WI. They had three children,
born in Lancaster. Of these three children, only Clara had children.

Clara Elizabeth Rhodes married HERMAN BUCHNER and had two daughter, GLADYS

Gladys Rhodes Buchner married HENRY BRAINERD NELSON and had three children.

I am seeking info about my ancestors who lived in Lynn, MA and seeking
others who share these ancestors:

My great, great great grandmother was Margaret "Peggy" Rhodes, b. April 27, 1811.
She married Louis H. Hayles on January 7, 1836 - possibly in Alabama.
One of their children - the only one I've identified - was my great great grand father
Brown Hayles, b. December 10, 1848.
Brown Hayles died in Eliska (Monroe County, Alabama) and is buried in
the Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church cemetery there.

I have been able to find out nothing more about Margaret "Peggy" Rhodes parents
or other ancestors (or descendants other than my line.)

16. (Dick Armstrong)

I am just getting started on my Rhoades ancestry, and fortunately I
have been given much information from several sources to start with,
which I would like to share with others if interested. I would like
to verify and fill in gaps. I also would like to pursue the England
end too. I have been told that my lineage goes back to "Willemus" who
went to England with William the Conqueror in 1066 from Normandy.
I noticed there are a couple of you that may be tied to Henry Rhodes
of Lynn, MA, born in 1608 and migrated to America in 1637, Item 3 below.

23. GUYDAR (Guy Wirth)

1850 census, Medina County, Ohio, Liverpool Township; pages 1057-1060
Jacob Rhodes, age 50, born in Germany
Mary Rhodes, 50, Germany
Peter Rhodes, 20, Germany
Mary (Anna Marie?), 19, Germany
Sucy(?), 15 Ohio
Jacob, 12, Ohio
Catherine, 10, Ohio
Phebe, 7, Ohio

In the 1860 census, the Rhodes family is not shown but a Roth family appears
to be on the same land and the first names are very close to the same as the
Rhodes family. Anna Marie Roth is my ancestor. I am guessing that the Rhodes
family changed their name to Roth. Any help to confirm this and, assuming that
this guess is correct, to extend the Rhodes tree back in time would be much

father - Billy Rhodes b. 1915 - Ocala, Fl

grandfather - Charles Marion Rhodes b. ???? Trenton, Fl

That is all I know (Wanda)

Here is my short profile of my grandfather John Walter Rhodes.
All information is from relatives that knew him.
He was with his fathers traveling tent, who was the minister and his
sister who played the piano, he, grandfather led the music. He met
and married my grandmother Nora Salina Hines born 1898 in Texas,
I'm assuming West Texas. His mother was from a Cherokee Reservation in
Okla., they think, as when my uncle J.D. (John Delton) was about 10
someone came to the Hines family telling great grandfather that some
and had been left to John Walter Rhodes children. Great-grandfather
said that "none of them were going to have anything to do with any
Indian land and to forget it."
When grandmother died in 1924 grandfather took the three children,
J.D. born 1920 in Roby, Fisher Co., TX. Josie Mae born 1921 Roby
my mother), Renee' born 1924 in Roby, TX, grandfather took all the
children to one of his relatives home a long days ride from Campsprings,
TX. She was an old maid. She didn't like boys and was quite abusive to
uncle J.D. so grandfather picked them up placed each of them with 3
different Hines relatives. He then left for somewhere in south Texas,
they think, and remarried and possibly had another child or two then
died a few years later with dropsy of the knee.

Here is an outline of my Rhodes ancestors:

JOSEPH RHODES and his wife ELIZABETH lived in Carteret County, NC.
He bought land there in 1759 and 1766.
He died in 1789 and in his Will he mentioned his son JOHN and
daughter MARY WEEKS.
This daughter, MARY RHODES WEEKS, b. 1725, was the wife of
JABEZ WEEKS, SR and they were married about 1746 in Onslow County, NC.
They were the parents of nine children.

I would like to find more information about Joseph and his wife Elizabeth,
their parents, and also any siblings and perhaps their families.

29. (Merle E. Ray)

I am a descendant of Gabriel Rhoads through his daughter Magdalena
who married Michael Ray. I looked through your "Search" files and was
surprised to see that no mention has been made of two books by Marie
Leighty Engel (1) The Earliest Rhodes of Bedford, Blair, Huntindon,
Mifflin and Somerset Counties of Pennsylvania and (2) Henry Rhoads
Senr, Immigrant and his Earliest Descendants. I have information on a
large part of Henry's family including a couple generations of the
Isenharts. Which child of Johann Jacob and Susannah are you a
descendant of? It would appear that we are probably third or fourth
cousins. I am going to go thru my files and compare notes with the
information in the Search files. I would like to get the rest of the
Isenhart connection.

Hello, I am looking for information on my father's side of the family. My father was Joseph Patrick Dill Rhoades (1926-1994), his father was Horace Vaughan Rhoades (1892-1984), and the only other Rhoades I know of is my great grandfather Charles B (Breham) Rhoades (1862-1919). Dad was born in Delaware, Grandfather Horace in MD, and that is all I know. I always heard that my father was the only son of an only sons son. Ugh.
