Merle, both from a spiritual and genealogical standpoint I'm interested
in the Roth/Rhoads/Rhodes/Rhoades of the Palatinate (Germany) you
mention. The more well known Henry Rhoads that migrated to the Green
River area of Muhlenberg county Kentucky is in my heritage. I strongly
suspect my family heritage religiously can be attributed to these folk.
I would like to know more of their religious experience since I know
somewhat of their secular history.

They were Lorentz Linhardt/Leonhardt/etc. and Henry Rhodes. Rev.
Linhardt arrived here between 1790 and 1800. His place of origin is
unknown. Rev. Rhodes may have been born and raised here to another
Rhodes/Roth family or may have moved here about the same time. Both are
mentioned as Dunker ministers.
>Rhodes/Roth are referenced in Austin Cooper's "2 Centuries in
Brother's Valley" (Somerset Co VA) -with several Henry. I followed him
to the Green River in Kentucky -Muhlenberg Co -possibly by 1785.
>I have kept a partial record on the Carolina churches -because they
were involved in the Pietist expression of the early Brethren, and were
rejected by Annual Meeting in 1798. Many of them moved on to Kentucky.

interested in the names connected to these families -for my records.
