There (and I think these are the same people) There is an Isaac Rhodes (b. 1813) and an Isaiah Rhodes (b.1813) both married to Phebe Morris. The census taker has his name written down two differnt ways at two different times. What I have is that Isaac/Isaiah (Same person) are ( I think) the parents of John Rhodes b. 1855/56 John Rhodes married Sarah (martin?) and their kids are Wm, Mary, Elvin, Abner,Phebe, and Myrtle. Elvin is married to Ruth simms (which goes into the line I'm working on) Henry Rhodes (b. 1784) who married Elizabeth Holmes (b. 1758) they had Jacob Rhodes (1782-1865) (Look at dates, they don't make sense) I have also a Henry Rhodes b 1800 and a Henry Rhodes b. 1754) John Rhodes (1816/17) oh who was married to Sophia (b. abt 1821) their children are ellen, John Rhodes (child of Jacob Rhodes (b. 1782-1865) Marcelus, George. Henry Rhodes born 1800 pa I have him also listed b in 1754 in Pa. Henry Rhodes father is supposed to be Jacob. Henry Rhodes son is Noah. Jacobs brothers are John and Daniel. Hoping you can sort this out. I sorted it out and I thought I'd let you see what I had so you could compare it to what you had. The Henry b. in 1800 has brothers named John and Daniel. The Henry b. 1800 also has a son named Noah. Jacob Rhodes 1782-1865) is the father of Isaac Rhodes who is married to Phebe Morris. I'm so confused and I'm hoping you can help me figure this out

"I guess I'd ask more questions first. Have you pulled wedding records on each of these people...both civil and church records? It's clear they were very religious from the names of the children, so it's highly likely that a minister married at least some of these people. Many of those records not only exist, but are well preserved and include the names of the parents of both the bride and groom. Where did they live? I'm looking at some of these records and it appears they're not all from the same state. So based on what you know for sure, where did the people you want to find live at various points in their lives and what were their occupations? Have you looked for any probated estates/wills? Usually the preamble of any will starts off with who the person was, where they were born, who their parents were, and where the decedent lived. Have you looked through Pension records from the returning soldiers from the War of 1812? At least one of the Henrys you list was exactly the right age to have fought in the war. Most soldiers were either given land (often in Indiana and Illinois) in lieu of salary. Others were given a pension by the state for whom they fought. Probably most importantly, have you posted to the Rhodes forum on Genforum? That will be the group of researchers most likely to be able to sort through records with you and help you link up the right lines. It appears to be a very healthy community, so you should be able to find help. Until you can find more concrete links between people, I don't think you have enough to untangle this ball. But I think with a little digging in the right places and a little help from those who've already researched the Rhodes lines, you'll be able to untangle this."

"I had found a book in my local library which had list the English names and the spellings of each of those names in different countries. I copied most of the book because of various spellings I have came across. Isaac: In English can also be spelled as Ike and Izaak. Isaiah: In English can also be spelled as Esay and Isa. There are different spellings for both names in other countries. According to this book, the two names are not the same and they are listed separately. But, in your case, I believe you are correct and the person who recorded the information did not know how to spell. Unless, Isaac and Isaiah were twins and one passed away and the other twin married the same Phebe. And I might add that Phebe is spelled 5 different ways. As for the rest of your ancestors, you had me confused after Henry. Now, I'll confuse you more. Henry can be spelled Hagan, Harry, or Hendrik."

Hey everybody, Im confused...Really like both schools but I cant decide between them. Whats your opinions about each schools? And why would you pick ___ over the other? Really need help.. I have been asking about the schools in thier respective forums. Here are some of my opinions about the situatition: Really like both since they gave me some scholarships :P 1.OSU is more football and school-spirited school with a great city i.e. Columbus. Osu offered me the Honors Program, but I might get distracted by the sports and the community. Oh yeah, OSU seems a little more lively and funnier than Rhodes. I really like the atmosphere of Ohio with all the concerts and people. 2. Rhodes has a smaller pop and great teachers, so there is a better learning environment. Also, It is close to my house and it looks really nice. Oh yeah, I want to go into med, and I think rhodes has the right atmosphere for studying and staying focus. The bad thing is Rhodes is a liberal arts school which offers fewer majors than OSU. Additionally, Rhodes stated that it has 95% accpetance rate for med school if the student displays a 3.3 GPa and 26 on the MCAt. It has a kool city--Memphis--but there are a lot of gang activities. Your thoughts on my situatition and what you think I should go? A lot of my friends say that I should go to OSU.. but that doesnt really matter Thxs everybody.

Norman McPantsalot :
"Go with OSU. It's always good to go to a college that's outside your neighborhood. You'll get some new experiences and meet some people you wouldn't necessarily meet if you went to Rhodes. If you're going to be in the honors program, you'll probably have the self-control to keep yourself from getting too distracted by your social life, but college is in large part about trying new things, so see what you enjoy the most."
Professor X :
"In my opinion, Rhodes is a terrific place. I recommend it. It has an excellent academic reputation, and you are correct in that it is small enough for you to have closer relationships with your professors, and a better environment for dedicated study. It is so easy to get lost in the crowd at OSU, and, as you observed, there's a real possibility of getting distracted by the party scene. That can spell real trouble for maintaining a high GPA and becoming a strong candidate for med school."

"I'm biased. I have no experience with Rhodes, but I did get accepted into OSU for graduate school. OSU is a fantastic school. There really is more to it than just a sports school...in most cases, the science departments are ranked in the top 10 in terms of NIH funding. The program I got into was ranked 8th in the nation, which is pretty damn good. You will have many more research opportunites at OSU if medical school is your destination. You go to the school with the most opportunities, period. Small liberal arts schools are...nice (my friend goes to Pomona)...but in most cases, they don't have the same kind of resources a beast of a school like OSU will. Then again, I am biased. Columbus is a great town. As for medical school acceptance rates, that means nothing...your college experience and medical school acceptance or rejection is what you make of it. Good luck!"

"Just remember like in sports OSU stands for Overrated State University, just ask florida."
erinn83bis :
"OSU is the way to go for science. They have really strong programs, while some liberal arts colleges only have so-so programs (I'm not very familiar with the particulars of Rhodes). I admit I'm an OSU grad, so I'm biased. Also, sticking with Honors can separate you a bit from the partying. If you are very serious about Med school, you'll keep yourself focused, because you have to."
