Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Rhoades families who came mainly from Denmark, England and Germany. Focus is on the ancestors and descendants of Foster Rhoades (1897-1983), son of Thomas Rhoades and Martha Ann Powell. Their family settled in Kamas, and later moved to Hanna and Tabiona, Utah. The children of Foster Rhoades and Myrtle Leona Woods are Winslow, Fern, Lois, and Darlene. An earlier ancestor, Heinrich Roesch (Henry Rhoads) married Catharine Rheinhardt in 1738 in Palatinate Germany, and immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1747. Other ancestors were Thomas Rhoades (1794-ca. 1869) and his fifth wife, Jacobine Wilhelmina Sophie Jorgensen, who converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1852, and immigrated from Denmark to America. Some records show they changed their surname to Johnson. In the 1700's, some Rhoades and allied families settled in Nova Scotia and Ontario (Canada), and in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Vermont. During the 1800's, some moved to California, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, and Utah. Later descendants and relatives also lived in Samoa, Germany, and in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Massachusetts, Oregon, Texas, Washington, Wyoming, and elsewhere.
