My grandmothers maiden names was Rhoads, she mailed a Rhodes my grandfather. I was raised in Plainview, Ill. The Rhoads line from Kentucky settled in and around Plainview and Medora, Ill. The Tennessee line Rhodes settled in the same areas. Jacob Rhoads and his sons came from Kentucky around 1826, and settled near Medora, I suspect Benjamin Rhoads was a grandson, as Jacob was an old man when following his son's to Medora. Who were the letters addressed to in Plainview. My great great-great grandfather was Edmund Rhoads, and my great grandfather was Samuel Rhoads. I have papers of who the others are, but not at my desk right at this moment. My e-mail is: . I can pass on information if you need something regarding descendants.
