Hi Rhonda My greatgrand mother Elizabeth Ann Rodda married Matthew Richards Dec 6 1851. They lived in Hazel Green Wisconsin from 1850 thru 1871 then in 1872 they moved toColfax Co Nebraska, and farmed there. I just recieved the Probate Documents of both. In those Documents is show a William Thomas filed papersagainst the Estate of Matthew Richards for $1357.05on 21st dat of Jan 1898 in Grant County Wisconsin and signed by Notary PublicHenry D. York of Grant Co. Wis. Then on May 6th 1899 William Thomas gave the Colfax Co Court Papers theAccount was Paid In full.
When I saw your Posting with William Thomas Rodda, I thought this could be a connection. Look at my Posting under Rodda of the 1850,50 and 70 census there are Elizabeths brothers and sisters that just might connect to yours, if so please e-mail meLMRSR@yahoo.com
