I only have the 1870 Pope Co IL census at hand right now and it is James Rorex 70m TN (makes him b. 1800)...wife is Parthne 65 NO, John 19 IL also there is a Rhoda Rorex 27 IL, Andrew K Rorex 28 TNnow not on census but from IL marriage records are James W Rorax m Rhoda M Waters 1865 so she must be the one in the census of 1870 and something must have happened to James. Joseph Evetts m Mary Jane Rorax 2/18/1849 Pope, Henry C Rowe m Eliz S Rorax 8/19/1864(Rowe/Roe and Evetts/Evitts and Roarks/Roxex/Rorax are in my ancestors of Pope Co/Saline Co IL).
