THE RHODES/RHOADS  FAMILIES OF THE AREA

 

There are several Rhodes families living in this area in the early pioneer days, but have not been able to connect them for sure into a family.   Perhaps there is someone out there who has researched this family and can help to put them together for us.    Here are some of the info on these early Rhodes men.    Sometimes spelled “Rhoads”.  

 

The History of Spencerville tells of a “Mr. Sanders” who from his family record says that there were 4 brothers who came to this area from Virginia about 1834-1835.   (Daniel’s daughter, Minerva, married a Sanders.)

 

Possible brothers might be these early men:

 

William, who married Betsey in 1839

John, 1796, who married Hannah or Mary or both

Daniel, 1798, who married Louisa and Mary

Jeremiah, 1807, who married Ann Fleming

Jacob, 1817 who married Sophia Blyler

     Having found the ancestors of Jacob, it appears that these are two different families though we find that many of the first names are the same.

     See Jacob and his ancestors and descendants below:  

 

WILLIAM RHODES

 

William may have owned land in Spencerville, IN.   He and Betsey were married in DeKalb Co., IN.

William ran a saloon and at the time the WCTU was quite active and confronted him.   He was converted and quit the saloon business.

The children’s ages seem to match with an 1839 marriage date

The mother, Mary, from VA matches some of the history of the family

Note that “Grandma Rhodes” was the cook in the hotel at Spencerville (look under John)

William born in Ohio, also matches family moves

 

JOHN RHODES, 1796  

 

John came to Indiana about 1835

DeKalb County marriages have a John Rhodes marriage to Hannah Couch.

“Mary” is on the tombstone as his wife

Possible sons, John, William, and Jeremiah

 

John apparently started a hotel when he moved to Spencerville and called it the “Exchange”.   Then his brother, Jeremiah, took it over and changed the name to “Pioneer Hotel”.    “Grandma Rhodes” was the cook in his hotel.   

 

DANIEL RHODES, 1798 in VA by Cemetery records, died 1852 in DeKalb Co., IN

 

From the History of Northeast Indiana, LaGrange, Steuben, Noble and DeKalb Counties, Vol. 11 under Ira Ford, Orville Stevens, William H. McEwen and William H. McIntosh.   The Lewis Publishing Co., Chicago and New York, 1920

 

Biography of F. E. Rhodes, whose father was Milus and his father was Daniel   Source:  DeKalb Co. Webpage, Biographies, by Arlene

 

“He (F. E. Rhodes) is the son of Milus and Elizabeth (Beams) Rhodes.   His father (Milus) was born on the same farm, February 22, 1838, and died January 16, 1918.   The pioneer grandfather, DANIEL RHODES, who came from Ohio and was numbered among the very earliest settlers in Concord Township of DeKalb County.   He entered 160 acres of land and that farm has never been in any other ownership except the Rhodes family and the government.   Daniel Rhodes was a Democrat.   His children were, Daniel, Newton, Milus, Nancy, Mary, Matilda, Sarah, Alice, Manda, Minerva.”  

 

Ancestral File of Minerva says that Daniel was born 1799 in Virginia and Mary was born 1809 in VA and died Nov. 16, 1890 at Huntertown, Allen Co., IN.     Minerva was married at Spencerville.   The 1880 Census of prob. daughter, Mary Ann (Rhodes) Simon says her father was born VA and her mother born Ohio.

Though the children are listed as being born in Iowa, Daniel had been in IN as shown in 1840 census, so probably meant to be Indiana though the writing looks like IA.   

 

It appears that Daniel’s daughter, Mary Ann Rhodes, married Solomon Simon and lived in Perry Township, Allen Co., IN.   Cemetery records show her birthdate as 1831.   

 

We find that Daniel died in 1852 and his wife, Mary then lived with son, Milus, in the census records.

From the History of Spencerville:

“Jerry Rhodes” settled at Bear Creek and took over the hotel that was started by his brother, JOHN.   John had started the hotel and called it “Exchange”.   When Jerry took it over he called it the “Pioneer Hotel”.   It was in business under Jerry (Jeremiah) until 1882.  “Grandma Rhodes” was the cook and she didn’t allow any liquor in the hotel.”   History of Spencerville, Rootsweb, DeKalb Co. Website.  

 

Jeremiah settled about 1836 in the northern part of Concord Township.   Spencerville History also says that John R. Rhodes was the father of John and Jeremiah Rhodes.   The father lived across the road from the sons.

From the Avilla News, July 1920:  RHODES REUNION

 

The Seventh annual reunion of the Rhodes family was held in the LaOtto School house Saturday, August 21st.   A good crowd was present, although a number were kept away because of threshing.  56 members registered.   Mrs. Carrie Dunten Mawe of Lincoln, Nebraska, being the guest of honor added greatly to the pleasures with her cheerful manner and gave us a good talk. 

 

All old officers were re-elected to serve another year.  FRANK RHODES, president;  HENRY RHODES, Vice-president;  JOHN MENDENHALL, secretary and treasurer;  MRS. GEORGE RHODES and MABEL RICH were appointed as a committee on music for the next reunion.

 

It was decided to hold the next reunion in the LaOtto School house the last Saturday in August 1921.  The usual annual feast was no small part, being plenty of the best and to spare.   Ice cream was served in the afternoon.

 

After a day visiting, talks, and music, all present agreed that this reunion was a success and that these reunions were something worth while and to boost for the next one and try to make it better.

 

Another reunion was announced to take place on Sunday, August 31, 1930.   The RHODES Family reunion will be held at the home of FRANK LONGSWORTH, 6 miles south of Ari.   (No other information was given on this one)

 

From the 1874 Swan Township, Noble Co., IN map we find that Jacob Rhodes owns land west of what we now call LaOtto.   At that time it was called “Grand Rapids Crossing” as the trains crossed at that point.  This would be the same railroad that traveled along on the south side of what we now know as 205.

 

Jacob Rhodes had land in Section 27, Township 33 North, Range 11 E.   This is in Swan Twp in Noble County, IN.   Also in the same section we find land belonging to William Rhodes and Daniel Rhodes, both probably the sons of Jacob.   Jacob was still living at the time of this plat map though Sophia would have died a few years earlier.   Jacob also has land in Section 33.  May be the son, Jacob.   They are smaller sections of land.

 

Possibly the following 1880 census may be the same Jacob, with a new wife:
