  • Notes 
    • John Rhodes was a Constable and Undersheriff in Fairfax County, Virginia. Court records show that John Rhodes made a court appearance to move that James Rhodes did not have to pay taxes.

      Loudoun County Tithables 1758-1786, Volume 1 A Historian's Guide to Loudoun County, Virginia, Colonial Laws of Virginia, and County Course Orders, page 150 August 11, 1760 John Rhodes is the Fairfax County Sheriff

      The Rhodes family of Stafford County,appears to be the same Rhodes family of Fairfax County.

      The Rhodes family first appears in Stafford County,around 1739 on a land deed with other names (Willoby Newton).

      There was also a William Rhodes who was born in Fairfax County, Virginia, in 1745. He dies around 1830 in Champaign County, Ohio. He fought in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted in Fairfax County, Virginia, 1775. Campaign County, Ohio, records list some family in Ohio as James and Sanford Rhodes.

      From: Washington's Church: An Historical Sketch of Old Christ Church, Alexandria, Virginia, Together with a Brief Description of the Centenary Services Therein, November 20 and 21st, 1873, By Randolph Harrison McKim, Published by Press of R. Bell's sons, 1888The Chapel of Ease." The respective dignity of the two churches is indicated by the comparative emoluments of the office of sexton in the same; for, in the year 1766, Gerrard Tramill, sexton at the Falls Church, receives a salary of five hundred and sixty pounds of tobacco, while John Rhodes, sexton at Alexandria, receives only five hundred pounds of the same article!

      From the Will of Frances Colvill. , dated 29th day of March 1772, Recorded in County of Fairfax, Liber B. No. 1, folio 424 & Ex., Witnessed by John Rhodes

      From "The Descendents of John Rhodes (of Stafford County, Virginia) Website)" John Rhodes, son of John Rhodes, was probably born before 1720, as in the 22 Jan 1739/40 will of William Sanford of Westmoreland County Virginia (Cople Parish) he refers to his daughter Martha Rhodes, who receives one cow and one calf. The couple appears later in Overwharton parish records, where Sanford Rhodes son of John & Martha Rhodes was born 13 Dec 1746. 'Son John Rhodes' was given a Desk and a cow and calf in the will of his father.

      A John Rhodes appears on deeds in Fairfax county Virginia - John Rhodes is a witness to an indenture made 18/19 August 1758 between Gabriel Adams and John Adams; Fairfax County, Virginia. Jno Rhodes appears in the margin of deeds recorded on 19 Feb 1761. He may still have been living as late as 1786, when the Stafford County ,personal property tax list shows a J. Rhodes living w/ one white male 21+, a horse and 6 cows. (This may also be a descendant or other relative.)
