    John Rhodes was my great, great, grandfather. Do you have any other info on him.?

  2. Ann

    You have Mary Bonds born 3 Sep 1833 died 1860 & married John Rhodes 1862?????

    • That would be kind of hard to get married 6 ft. under wouldn’t it lol…..I posted this for a cousin who had sent me the info….he wanted to be able to show it to a family member. I was very lax in not checking out the information. This is one of the very few times that I took someone at their word and did not source it out and it makes me sick to know i erred in this fashion. I did a quick search on a John Rhodes and found that he had married a Mary Childers. Not sure if this is the one that is your gg grandfather or not. I will be deleting some of the information in this post until i can source it out and have documentation on the siblings. Thank you so very much for bringing this to my attention!!!

      • My gg grandfather was John Rhodes who married Mary Bonds Childers. Do you know his middle name? New at this and can’t seem to find him in Prentiss County. Too many John Rhodes.
