Notes
The BRMCK article on David E. RHOADS indicates David's father was Solom on RHOADS; however, JRC [Jean Rhoads Camas] shows him a son of Henry RHOAD S.
JRC: David was the youngest son of Capt. Henry Rhoads who came to Kentuc ky from Somerset County. Captain Henry was called "The Godfather of Muhl enberg County" because he suggested the "Muhlenberg" name when the coun ty was formed at a time when Capt. Henry was the Representative to the Ken tucky Legislature for Logan County. Muhlenberg County was formed from pa rt of Logan County, so Capt. Henry Rhoads was the first Representati ve to the Kentucky Legislature from the newly formed county. David Rhoa ds secondly married on March 22, 1824 to Sally Eaves, a girl considerab ly younger than himself. Source: Muhlenberg County, Kentucky Marriag es - Published by the Hopkins County Genealogical Society., page 14 (fr om original Marriage Book I).
From 1859 census: David RHOADS, age 72, born PA; Sarah, age 50, born VA
Later David's son Gilbert Vought Rhoads, married Temperence G. Eaves, bo rn 1797 in Virginia. She could be the sister of Sally Eaves who married D avid. David Rhoads is buried in Rhoads Cemetery, Browder, Muhlenberg Coun ty, Kentucky

Leon - Are you referring to Daniel Boone RHOADS, son of Capt. Henry RHOA DS and Elizabeth "Dovey" STONER? If so, I show his wives as Mary Keith a nd Mary Kimberly. This Daniel had a son Daniel by Mary Kimberly. This Dani el RHOADS was born 20 August 1811; died Aug 28, 1873. He married Sally Hud speth Jun 29, 1834.

Dear Anita: I am a descendant of Captain Henry Rhoads through his younge st son, David (1755-1855). Al Rhods, another descendant, and I are doing r esearch for a book about the life of Captain Henry Rhoads, which I hope wi ll be published sometime near the end of 2001.
Captain was a true leader. July 15 and 16, 1776, he was one of the delegat es from Bedford County, PA to the first PA constitutional conventio n. He no doubt knew Benjamin Franklin, since Franklin was elected he ad of this convention. A few years later he represented Bedford Coun ty in the PA state legislature. After he moved to Kentucky he represent ed Logan county, KY in the KY state legislature, got a new county formed a nd had it named for his former comanding general, John Peter Gabriel Muhle nberg. That was in 1798. He then represented the new county in the KY legi slature in 1800. After he settled near what is now Browder, KY he got a li cense to have an "ordinary" in his home (a restaurant) and a tavern, and g ot a license to run a ferry across the Green River, which was close to h is cabin.
There will be many more interesting details and stories in our book.
I hope you get the information you need about our illustrious ancestor.

Suggest Cap, Henry was probably born in Frederick Co., MD, not in PA. Hen ry Roth, Sr. was German Reformed and decided German Baptist Brethren chur ch (Tunker, Dunker, Dunkard) was better and moved his family to Brothers V alley Twp., Bedford Co., PA ( that part now Somerset).

I have information on the Rhoads family who came to America in 1737--landi ng at Philadelphia, PA. Brothers Hendrick and Jacob Roesch (Rhodt) arriv ed and had their last name changed by the English officer checking their p apers. They settled in Brothers Valley, PA. I have information on Hendrick 's line all the way to the present day. Hendrick died in 1773. Him and h is wife had 11 children (names known) including Henry--who sired Daniel. D aniel was in the elite Minute Men of 1775. Danielson, Conn. is named aft er him. He also served as one of George Washington's body guards. Daniel m arried Elizabeth Newman. One of their children was Thomas Foster Rhoads--w ho married Elizabeth Forster and 2 of their children were Daniel and Joh n. Both brothers served in the rescue parties of the Donner Party in the S ierra Mountains of California in 1847. Daniel is my Great, Great Grandfath er.
If this information coorlates with yours--e-mail me and I will be gl ad to furnish information. I have T O N S of information, stories, etc.

I would sincerely LOVE to say that my Rhoades were a part of Cap. Henry 's family, but my George Roth/Rhoades was in Woodbury Twp., Bedford Co., P A, about 40 miles away, as early as 1783. Isn't it interesting to know th at Henry, Sr. and Jr. were both pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Dunke r, Tunker, Drunkard), yet the elder was a gunsmith and the son command ed in the Rev. War. My George was b. ca. 1745 and married Arma Keila (stra nge name) and were probably German Reformed or Evan. Lutheran. Would dear ly love to be able to connnect with your Henry, Sr., but no luck as yet.

James, this is a little late, but I just now got onto this line and saw yo ur message.I too am of the Jacob V. & Elizabeth Linton Rhoads line.Their s on Benjamin Linton never married.He was born June 19,1841,died Jan 10,1909 ,was buried in his Confederate uniform.I have many pictures of him fr om my grandmother's collection,and she always referred to him as "Mother 's old bachelor brother".Her mother was Lucy Ann Rhoads who married her co usin,Morton Garner Rhoads, who were my great-grandparents. So,I have clo se lines to Rhoads,Morton & Linton.Jacob V.'s father was David, Mother w as Elizabeth Vaught,which is why most of their children were named --wi th V. as their middle initial.
The Solomon who came to Amer.with Capt. Henry's FATHER never married.Dav id is Capt. Henry's son,born 1777. Since we are of the same line, would lo ve to hear from you.E-mail me if you would like to. ThanksPat Keen Hendley

HAZEL CREEK MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
from 'Henry Rhoads Senr Immigrant and his Earliest Descendants'
by Marie Leighty Engel

p 73

DAVID RHOADS was very active in the Hazel Creek Church founded in 179 7. He built a communion table for the church in 1802 plus four chairs. T he table is still being used today. This church in Muhlenberg County is t he oldest Baptist Church west of Louisville, Kentucky, and still has a str ong congregation. The many children of Joseph [Rhoads], David [Rhoads], H enry [Rhoads] and the Severs were church members. He was a farmer and a ll of his children were born in Muhlenberg County.

http://letsbehappy.net/MuhlCo/hazel_creek.htm
from History of Kentucky Baptists by J. H. Spencer

Hazel Creek Baptist Church

In 1898, Wm. J. Johnson published a "History of Hazel Creek Baptist Church ." He searched all the old records and verified his statements by using th em. We quote from his work:

Hazel Creek Church was organized Dec. 3, 1798 with five members, viz,: Ben jamin Tolbart, John Keith, Hannah Keith, Mahetable Morton and George Brown .

The old "Creed" reads as follows: "We, the United Baptist Church of Chris t, on Hazel Fork of Muddy River, after giving ourselves to the Lord and o ne another, think it fit to draw up a catalogue of our faith; for mutual s atisfaction.

Under the articles of their confession of faith the 10th article state s: " We believe feet washing to be a command, to be complied with whenev er opportunity serves."

This body was organized near the grounds where Ward's school house now sta nds, yet had no house of worship, as the records show, and met at the memb ers' houses alternatively for nearly three years. In June, 1800, it m et in the "meeting house on Hazel Creek." This is the first mention of a h ouse of worship. Tradition has it that this house was at, or near, the pla ce of organization, near where Mud River Union church now stands. We are t old this was a log building. The second house, also a log structure, was b egun April 4, 1807, on ground ceded by Wm Bell, Sr., just back of the pres ent one. None of the old building is to be found now, except the corner st one; yet the spot is still sacred in the hearts of the members of the o ld body, whether they ever worship in it or not. All the many precious sou ls who gave themselves to God at this sacred spot, or nearly all, have go ne to their reward. The third and present house was dedicated in October 1 859.

In 1799, twelve members were authorized to "constitute an arm at George Cl arks, on the west side of Pond Creek," which doubtless led to the formati on of Nelson Creek Church, June 10, 1803." June 1, 1805, eighteen membe rs were dismissed from this church to form Midway Church, now Monticell o. August 2, 1806, eighteen members were dismissed to form what is now Ca ve Spring, near Pond River, on the road from Greenville to Hopkinsville. C ypress Church, Mc Lean County, was formed from this church in 1808. Antioc h, Todd County, was formed from this church, and Whippoorwill Church in t he year 1819. May 6, 1820, the arm known as Hebron (now Mt. Vernon) was ma de a constituted body. In 1840, thirteen members from this church formed N ew Hebron Church (Muhlenburg). Ebenezer was organized with twenty-six memb ers from this church, January 3, 1851. Macedonia was formed from this chur ch in 1856. New Hope Church (Muhlenburg) was formed of material mostly fr om this church, in 1858; but is now extinct. Suger Grove was constituted w ith twenty-nine members, mostly from this church, in January, 1873.

We have no knowledge of any union of churches with this earlier than 179 9. At a church meeting "at George Brown's July 3, 1799, after divine servi ces, the church proceeded to business, and elected three delegates to t he association on the Cumberland (Mero Association); viz.: Benjamin Tolbar t; John Keith and Henry Keith.

In 1808, Thos. Downs and Henry Keith were appointed to go to Union Associa tion. In November 1810 an advisory council of brethren from Providence, He ad of Muddy River and West Fork of Red River, were invited to determine t he standing of the church, that she might be admitted into a general Uni on with other churches. Accordingly a delegation of seven brethren from t he above named churches met with this church in December, with Lewis Moo re moderator and Asher Shelton clerk. The constitution and abstract of pri nciples of Red River Association read, to which this church acceded. At th is time the word, three in office, in article 1, of the Declaration of Fai th, were changed to make it read: "We believe in the Holy Trinity- Fathe r, Word and Holy Ghost". The churches Sandy Creek, Lick Creek and Nelson C reek acceded to the same propositions as did this church.

The council advised Beaver Dam to accede to the same propositions, and Cyp ress Church to organize anew. Thus a connection was formed with that assoc iation.

In 1811, the church was accepted into the Green River Association. In 181 2, Hazel Creek Church went into the organization of the Gasper River Assoc iation, when that body was dismissed from the Green River Association f or convenience sake.

THIRD GENERATION

35. Elizabeth VAUGHT was born on Mar 19 1779 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. R esearcher Jean Rhoads Camas 2-9-99 jrcamas@liii.com

I have always believed that Elizabeth Vought Rhoads was the daughter of Gi lbert Vought and Mary Martin. I had several reasons:

1. She named her first son "Gilbert Vought Rhoads"
2. Gilbert Vought (Sr.) is buried in Sears Cemetary right at the fo ot of my 3gr. grandfather, Barnabas W. Rhoads who, I suspected, was Gilber t's grandson.
3. I have dug for everything I could find regarding Gilbert Vought and fou nd that he came first to Muhlenberg County,(then Logan County) and soon af terward John Vought came to the county also. They appeared to be brother s, and now printed records confirm that fact. At least one Vaught research er, (Margaret P. Vaught), however, is not convinced that they were brother s, mainly due to the language of a 1781 document in Mifflin County, Pa., w hich indicates that a parcel of property owned by Gilbert Vought and othe rs in that family (as inherited from their father, Christian Vought) was S OLD to John Vought. If Christian was also John's father, then wouldn 't he aso have inherited this property? That is a puzzle that has not be en solved. Gilbert came from Elk Lick Township in Somerset County, Pa., w here Henry and most of the other Rhoadses came from, and they came about t he same time that Henry Rhoads and other Rhoadses came to Kentucky. (It do es not appear, however, that John Vought ever lived in Elk Creek Townshi p, Somerset County, Pa. Perhaps before coming to Muhlenberg County he a nd his wife, Elizabeth Martin Vought, stayed behind in Mifflin County, P a. to be near Elizabeth's mother.) Gilbert Vought was a soldier in the Re volutionary War in Pennsylvania, and I wanted to prove his relationsh ip to Elizabeth so that I could get recognition for him in the DAR, b ut no actual proof exists that I know of. First, Elizabeth predeceased Gil bert. Second, Gilbert left no will, unlike John Vought, who left a love ly will naming every one of his children. It was to be concluded, therefor e, that other young adults in the county at that time were possibly the ch ildren of Gilbert and Mary Vought and that possibility had to be explore d. Gilbert sold some acreage to Simeon Vaught who is believed to be his s on (he was not listed as John's son!). Finally, Gilbert "sold" all his rem aining land to Gilbert C. Vaught and Moses F. Glenn (husband of his younge st daughter --Mary M. Vaught) with the stipulation that they care for hi m, giving him housing, food, etc. for as long as he wished to stay with th em. For the first time then, I saw that David and Elizabeth had another s on before they had Gilbert, and he is called "Simon Vought Rhoads", born J anuary 1802, so then I wondered who was"Simon Vought"? I even wonder ed if he was her father instead of Gilbert; however, she did name her fir st daughter "Mary M." and I believe that was "Mary Martin" after her mothe r. That would be according to the naming practices of the time. Incidental ly, the first boy should have been named "Henry" after David's father, b ut since they did not do that, perhaps Simon was named after Elizabeth's u ncle who was killed by Indians while serving in Pennsylvania in the Revolu tionary War. The second son was named Gilbert Vought Rhoads, and accordi ng to tradition that shows "Gilbert Bought" is, indeed, the father of Eliz abeth Vought. I began suspecting last year (1994) that Gilbert and John V ought had married sisters. That fact has been verified with documents. Th ey are the daughters of Johann Eberhart and Jacobena Elizabeth Martin of M ifflin County, Pennsylvania. The list of Elizabeth and David's children w as obtained from a secondary source, a published source with no documentat ion given. Somewhere out there may be an old bible or perhaps it fell apa rt and was discarded. She died on Nov 1 1822 in Muhlenberg County, Kentuc ky. Fact 1. Rhoads Cemetary, Browder, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.

Elizabeth Vaught/Vought Rhoads was buried in Rhoads Cemetary, Browder, Muh lenberg County, Kentucky.

She was married to David RHOADS (son of Henry, Jr. RHOADS and Elizabeth ea STONER) on Mar 2 1798 in Logan County, Kentucky. David RHOADS was bo rn on Nov 19 1777 in Bedford, County, Pa.. Researcher Jean Rhoads Camas 2- 9-99 jrcamas@liii.com He died on Jul 8 1855 in Muhlenberg County, Kentuck y. David was the youngest son of Capt. Henry Rhoads who came to Kentucky f rom Somerset County. Captain Henry was called "The Godfather of Muhlenbe rg County" because he suggested the "Muhlenberg" name when the county w as formed at a time when Capt. Henry was the Representative to the Kentuc ky Legislature for Logan County. Muhlenberg County was formed from pa rt of Logan County, so Capt. Henry Rhoads was the first Representati ve to the Kentucky Legislature from the newly formed county.

David Rhoads secondly married on March 22, 1824 to Sally Eaves, a girl con siderably younger than himself. Source: Muhlenberg County, Kentucky Marria ges - Published by the Hopkins County Genealogical Society., page 14 (fr om original Marriage Book I).

From 1859 censusL David RHOADS, age 72, born PA; Sarah, age 50, born VA.

Later David's son Gilbert Vought Rhoads, married Temperence G. Eaves, bo rn 1797 in Virginia. She could be the sister of Sally Eaves who married Da vid.

Vaught Family
(10/05) My claim on the Vaught family is conjectural. It's a good probability, but without any documentary evidence to support it, I can't state it as a fact. Nevertheless, it looks better to be than any alternative. Eventually, something may turn up to prove who Joseph Rhoads married.

Elizabeth Vaught?
Elizabeth is named in Joseph Rhoads' will, which was proved in 1799. Her maiden name is not given. I don't know the year she was born or the exact year she died and I have no record of the date of marriage.

There have been other names put forth including Keith, Mitchum, Mitchell, and Van Meter, but again there appears to be no documentation.

So, here's what I think:

Elizabeth _______ Rhoads was born to Christian Vaught (aka Vought) and Hannah Crum in about 1854. She married Joseph Rhoads some time before 1775 in Pennsylvania and produced at least 9 children between 1775 and 1794. Some people have the birthdates of their children as early as the 1760s, but that doesn't make any sense.

I suggest 1754 as a birth year because if she married by 18 or 20, then she could have commenced producing her flock of children between 177276 and wrapped it up with Rachel in 1794.

According to other researchers Jacob Rhoads was born in 1780. According to Joseph's will, he and Henry were the two older sons. The oldest daughter, Mary Rhoads Hunsaker was born about 1775.

In the Vaught family there is a son, Simeon, born in 1752 and Gilbert, born in 1756. This would fit Elizabeth between them. I've not seen any documentary proof of birth years, so this is possible.

In any event, Gilbert and John Vaught were among the many families who followed Henry Rhoads and his several brothers west to Kentucky, though if Joseph was the youngest and daughter Rachel was born in Pennsylvania, then the earliest Joseph and Elizabeth could have been in Kentucky was 1794/5.

Other probabilities make an alliance more probable. Like the Rhoads family, the Vaughts were also German and probably shared many cultural, language, and religious characteristics. It was more common for people to marry social peers than to marry outside the "tribe", though that probably broke down quickly enough in the Wilderness which is what Kentucky was in 1795.

John Vought appears in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania in the 1790 census. Joseph Rhoads appears in the 1790 Fayette County, Pennsylvania census. By 1796, probably not long after arriving in Kentucky, Joseph is granted 600 acres in 3 200-acre parcels along Bradley's Creek, Mud River, and Jacob's Creek.

Joseph Rhoads died in 1799 and was survived by Elizabeth and nine children. What became of Elizabeth is not known except that she died sometime between 1799 and 1807 when Gilbert Vought appears in Muhlenberg County Records as the guardian of Daniel and Catherine Rhoads, orphans of Joseph Rhoads, dec'd. Families being what they are, it's more likely that guardianship would be assumed by kin.

Thus goes the logic. If someone comes up with a better suggestion, I'm certainly willing to change this.

LETTERS

D. C. Humphreys lived in Spring Station, Woodford County, KY, but, owned l and in Muhlenberg County. He and Gilbert Vaught Rhoads were close frien ds and the following two letters were written during the latter part of 18 63.

Shortly before the war Alexander Todd arrived to oversee the Muhlenberg pr operty for Humphreys, who was his uncle. Young Todd's father was Robe rt S. Todd, who by his first wife was the father of six children, among wh om was Mrs. Abraham Lincoln. Young Todd's mother was Humphreys' sister, E lizabeth.

Alexander received an invitation to attend the inaugural of President Linc oln, his brother-in-law, March 4, 1861. Shortly after his return, he join ed the southern army. He was killed at Baton Rouge, August 5, 1862.

After Young Todd's death, Gilbert Vaught Rhoads took over the manageme nt of Humphreys' Muhlenberg property for his old friend.


"Spring Station, Kentucky
13th November 1863

Gilbert V. Rhoads, Esq.

---My dear friend: -

Your very acceptable letter of 30th September I received a short time sinc e. It arrived while I was absent in Illinois which will account for yo ur not receiving an answer sooner. I am happy to learn you have recover ed from the dangerous attack of sickness you had in June last, and that y ou bid fair to be in the enjoyment of your usual health again. What a bles sing it is to enjoy health and how thankful we all are to Him in whom we l ive and move and have our being for it.

I have been anxious for two years to pay you a visit, and made my arrangem ents to send some hands down to open a large tobacco farm but this cruel a nd unnatural war has broken up all my arrangements and now I don't thi nk it worth while to count upon the work or value of my negro labou r. If the war lasts much longer all our young and valuable negroe men wi ll be pressed into the service to make railroads, cut wood, drive wagon s, make fortifications or perhaps enlisted as soldiers. I think the aboli tionists are determined to give a finishing blow to slavery in America. S hould they succeed I pity the poor negroes. I hope God will overrule a nd govern all things for our present and eternal good, the good of his chu rch and his glory.

I have been speaking to a man who has lived with me several years about go ing to Muhlenberg, and living on my land. He has not yet made up his mi nd on the subject. I don't wish you to rent my place to anyone until y ou hear from me. My rent corn dispose of as soon as you can for the be st price you can get, and retain the money in your hands until further ins tructions. Write to me and let me know the amount you receive for it. Co rn here is in good demand at $3.00 per barrel in the field and will be hig her. The crop of corn in Indiana and Illinois is very poor, the drought a nd the early frost have cut it down to almost nothing in places.

Last year in Illinois I got only 12 1/2 cents per bushel for my rent co rn and this year I am offered 40 cents.

I am glad to learn that my old friend Mrs. Rachael Rhoads is still enjoyi ng good health. Remember me kindly to her and all the family. Give my kin dest regards to my old friend Isaac Woods who I sincerely hope is prepar ed to live or prepared to die-whenever God in his providence shall see f it to call him. When you see Mr. Baker remember me to him and his wife wh ose kindness and hospitality I can never forget.

My family are all well except my grandson David who has been confined f or seven weeks with a swelled knee. I fear it is white swelling. He is m uch better and I hope will recover without a stiff knee. Write me soon a nd believe me sincerely Your friend,

D. C. Humphreys



Spring Station, Kentucky.
9th December, 1863.
Mr. G. V. Rhoads,-

Dear Sir:-

I am just in receipt of your kind letter of 21st November which by some mi stake was missent. I am glad to learn you are enjoying peace and quietne ss and sincerely hope you may long be exempt from the horrors of wa r. It is bad enough at a distance, but when it comes into our own hous es it is dreadful.

I notice your remarks about Chancy. My sister Mrs. Todd is now in Alaba ma where she got permission from President Lincoln to go for her daught er (who was married to General Helm who was killed at the battle of Chicka mauga.) She gave me no special directions about Chancy, but I am satisfi ed she wishes her and her son and daughter hired out and would consult Cha ncy's wish in a considerable measure as to whom she would like to live wit h. Certainly from my knowledge of Mr. Taggart my sister will have no obje ction to his having Chancy, and if he is willing to give a fair price f or Chancy and she is anxious to live with him, let him have her.


You said nothing in your letter about my rent corn for the year 1863. Wri te to me about it on receipt.


I would like to pay a short visit to Muhlenberg this winter if I thought t he Guerillas would not overhaul me. I hope the country will soon be fr ee of them.

Remember me to Mrs. Rachael Rhoads and all the family and accept for yours elf and family my best wishes for your health, happiness and prosperit y. Yours truly,

D. C. Humphreys


These two letters, it might be well to add, were found in the att ic of an old two-story weatherboarded log house standing on a hill overloo king Browder. A few years ago a number of old papers, regarded as rubbi sh by the man who had rented the house, were burned after they had been re moved from between two of the logs in the wall of this building. Evident ly these two had slipped down behind the lower log when the other lette rs were removed. At any rate, they were there discovered by Miss Amy M. L ongest, who recognized their value as documents bearing on local history."
