Does anyone know who Rhoda Nations' parents were? She was born abt 1837-8 and died before 1872. Rhoda Nations was first wife to Samuel Naylor III (Civil War veteran). They had five children, the first being Priscilla Naylor b.18 Jan 1860 Liberty Twp, Adams Co., IL. The other four children (Jennie, Charles, George, & Leonard) along with their mother (Rhoda Nations) were believed to have died from cholera (or another epidemic) sometime in the 1870's and early 1880's.Priscilla survived and married Charles W. Linn in 1880 Adams County, IL. The Linns had at least six children: Gertrude, David, Herbert, Jennie, Samuel, and Angie.They were my Grandmother's second cousins, but doubt if they knew each other. I have Rhoda's parents as John and Elizabeth (Malone) Nations. Is this correct?
Samuel Naylor's second wife was Barbara Nations (daug of Isaiah and Barbara (Roe) Nations. She is listed with family in 1850 Census in Liberty Twp. Adams County, IL. -Betty
