Looking for the descendants of Francis Rhodes born ca 1659 in Derbyshire, England, who immigrated to Maryland (Md) by 1698. He married twice and had at least Abraham Rhodes (his will in St Mary's Co., Md) and John Rhodes. They appear to have been in St Mary's Co., Md. The parents of Francis were John Rodes of Sturton, England and Elizabeth Jessup (or Jason).
At this time my line seems to trace back as follows:
Benjamin L. Rhodes, b 1839 Spencer Co., Ky m. ca 1865 Spencer Co., Ky to Emily A. Mills;
His father was Benjamin R. Rhodes, b 1816 Nelson Co., Ky m. 1837 Spencer Co., Ky to Elizabeth Ernspiger;
His father was Barney/Barnabus Rhodes, b ca 1780 Loudoun Co., Va m. 1804 Nelson Co., Ky to Sarah/Sally Hughes;
His father was Basil Rhodes, b ca 1740, Md m. Sarah;
His father was John Rhodes, Sr, b. 1685 Md, died 1764 St Mary's Co., Md., m. ca 1700 to Ellener Van Swearingen. He had a brother Abraham. Would like to know whether John and Abraham Rhodes are connected to the Francis Rhodes who immigrated to Md, and died in St. Mary's Co., Md.
Any help would be appreciated. Please e-mail to me at HANSER5@aol.com
