Hi everyone

Please could somebody look at the original census for 1861 for Rhodes to see if the first name has been mistranscribed. I cannot find a birth marrriage or death. This is the only time I can find him mentioned.
I have tried various ways of spelling the surname. I have the rest of the family in the other census' just not him.

Hi again

Just realised there is a Moses Walch born c1850 but he would be the grandson of the Head of house not the son. This would make more sense though given the age of Rhodes.

Thank you anyway Erika.
You would think it would be easy with an unusual first name wouldn't you ?

ErikaH Report 8 Mar 2018 16:34

Ancestry has the name as MOSES - and looking at the image, I'm inclined to agree.

I'll look for his parents in 1861................
