I know this dont answer your question but that is part of our problem.
We dont know where Eden's parents came from. We cant find any records of
them or of any siblings. As you probably know the record from Dobbs Co that
Johnston and Wayne were formed from were destroyed in fire. Note that
Elizabeth BRENT's parents came Halifax Co NC. Eden Married Elizabeth BRENT.
A John RHODES married Elizabeth's sister Charlotte BRENT in 14 Sep 1814. Who
was John RHODES. A good chance is it was Eden's brother or a cousin. Maybe
even his Father. It is a good chance they are connected to your Henry
RHODES. If you can solve that riddle you will be a heroine. You will make a
lot of people jump for joy and very happy. We are stumped on our RHODES line
at Eden RHODES.
Send me your line and we will compare notes.
