|North Carolina Rhodes/Roades/Rodes/Rhoads|
The following pages are solely dedicated to the Rhodes/Roads/Rodes/Rhoads families who migrated from North Carolina. As many genealogists have found, its seems we all migrated down the seaboard and westward from North Carolina.
I welcome all additions and corrections to there pages in hopes that we all can benefit from them. Only when we band together and share our knowledge can we learn our ancestry.
It seems that the spelling of the last name varied greatly regardless of the true spelling. Whomever enumerated the census chose the spelling. My own Rhodes was spelled as Rodes, Roads, and Rhoads as well.
My own line was a mystery, as my GGGrandfather was orphaned in Grant, Co., Arkansas. By census, I learned who his father was, William W Rhodes, and his brothers and sisters.
My hope is to find the descendants of James T Rhodes and Amanda Williams of Tennessee, Grant Co., Arkansas. So I can thank them for taking my GGGrandfather, John Edward Rhodes, in and raising him as their own.
As you can see from the localized research to the left, I have done some extensive land & census research on the Tennessee Township of Grant County, Arkansas. All the Rhodes in this area moved from Hardeman County, Tennessee. There parents John Rhodes and Charlotte Brent moved to Hardeman County from Johnston County, North Carolina.
