Josiah & Jacob appear to be sons of William Wroten of Dorchester, Maryland according to one researcher with Josiah being the father of David and another Josiah Rhoton.
Supposedly David is the father of a Thomas Tilford Rhoton who seems to have died a fairly young man leaving behind several children who apparently are being raised by their grandfather in Lynchburg, TN.
Among these children are Thomas Tilford Rhoton, Jr. who by 1900 is living in Elk City, Beckham Co., Oklahoma and David Abner Rhoton who has moved to Big Springs, Texas.
On the 1870 census there are several children listed with David and a E.A. who is his wife......but in 1860 he was listed alone so I am assuming this would be his grandchildren that he is now caring for and a second wife he married after 1860.
Does this sound familiar to anyone or does anyone fit into this family? Thanks.
