The Rhodes Family Page

Updated September 6, 2000


Rhodes family of Henderson County, NC.
We have traced our family back to Eli Rhodes and Katherine Roberts. We know that the Roberts family was concentrated in the Edneyville area when it connected with Eli Rhodes. We also know that Louisa Roberts was Katherine's sister and she married into the Wilson family which moved to Indiana around 1869.

One of the mysteries we are trying to solve is who is the father of Thomas Clingman Rhodes, who was the illegitimate child of Mary Rhodes, Eli and Katherine's daughter. Thomas was born in 1869, about the time the Wilson family left the area.

Rhodes family stories mention the name Sinclair as possibly being the father.

Wilson family stories tell of a murder around this time which caused them to flee to Indiana.

We would be very happy to exchange information with others interested in this branch of the Rhodes or Roberts families.
