    Notes:

    William Rhodes, the man, who was he? What is known about him comes from his military, pension, obituary, and other related papers. William was born in 1745, probably in Virginia. Little to nothing is known about his early life, but it was said h e had an extraordinary athletic ability in his youth and through his military life in the Revolution. On September 1st , 1775 at Alexandria, Virginia he enlisted as a private soldier in the 2nd Virginia Regiment. In September 1779, he was wounde d at the Battle of Stony Point; he was subsequently promoted to Corporal. He fought in many of the major battles of the American Revolution, along with an untold number of skirmishes. The battlefields ranged from north to New York, and as far so uth as Georgia. During Williams's tour of duty he was wounded many times in battle, five times severely. William Rhodes was discharged in Richmond, Virginia, about July 3, 1783 after nearly eight years of loyal service to his country. The follow ing is more about William Rhodes during the American Revolutionary War.

    William Rhodes of the 2nd Virginia Regiment, Continental Line from 1775-1783:

    "The heroism and gallantry of the second Virginia regiment I cannot help particularly mentioning; they would do honor to any country in the world. It is universally believed they behaved the best of any troops in the field." ~ Virginia Gazette , October 17, 1777

    In Alexandria, Virginia on September 1st, 1775 William enlisted as a private soldier for the term of one year, into the first company of the 2nd Virginia Regiment. The company was under the command of Captain. George Johnston, and the regiment u nder Colonel William Woolford. Colonel Woolford, with his men, were ordered to the vicinity of Norfolk, VA to stop the attacks and drive out of Virginia the British forces and loyalists under the command of former Royal Governor Lord Dunmore. Th e first known battle of the 2nd Virginia was at Great Bridge, VA on December 3, 1775. Colonel. Woolford, with his men, defeated the British regulars and loyalists of Lord Dunmore. This battle is considered by some to be the "Bunker Hill of the S outh." The end result was that Dunmore lost his base at Norfolk, and soon left the Virginia area. Later that month the soldiers were given their first uniforms at the campus of William and Mary College. They were issued frontier dress which cons isted of purple dyed hunting frocks, with capes and cuffs, fringed down the front, blue shroud leggings, plain linen shirts with cuffs, round hats, and given tomahawks. The following year they received a more military-looking uniform.

    On February 13, 1776 the 2nd Virginia was accepted for service into the Continental Line. Early that summer, the 2nd Virginia was ordered to New England to join the Continental Army under George Washington. At Williamsburg in August of 1776, enl istment's in the regiment were up. Private. William Rhodes was regularly discharged, and immediately re-enlisted for three years or the war, in contrast to the majority of the Veterans who did not and went home. Some of the battles the 2nd Virgi nia participated in during the year of 1776 were the battles of Long Island, Harlem Heights, and White Planes, NY. In September, Colonel. Woolford resigned and Lt. Colonel Alexander Spotswood succeeded as commander of the 2nd Virginia.

    January 17, 1777, William's company commander Capt. Thomas Tibbs died, Capt. John Peyton Harrison succeeded him. Later in the year, the 2nd Virginia was involved in the capture of Elizabethtown, NJ, the Battles of Brandywine and Germantown, PA . The following was printed about William's regiment in the newspaper Virginia Gazette on October 17, 1777: "The heroism and gallantry of the second Virginia regiment I cannot help particularly mentioning; they would do honor to any country in t he world. It is universally believed they behaved the best of any troops in the field." During the winter of 1777-1778, the 2nd Virginia encamped at Valley Forge, PA. In December of 1777 at Valley Forge, the regiment had a force of 406 men, bu t of them 245 were sick. By March of 1778, the 2nd Virginia's total strength had dropped 246 men, a loss of 160 from the previous December. On June 29, 1778, they were involved in the battle of Monmouth, NJ.

    Early that year, Washington recommended to Congress that in each battalion there be a company of Light Infantry. The Light Infantry was put in the places of most danger, and as Washington said, "[They were] to be constantly near the enemy and gi ve 'em every possible annoyance." Then, in August of 1778, there was an order to organize the Light Infantry. The men were handpicked from each regiment. "They were to be the best of men, the most hardy and active marksmen and commanded by goo d partisan officers." Later training would be personally overseen by drillmaster Baron Von Steuben. The Light Infantry troops were the first on the field of battle, and served as scouts and flankers. To be selected as one of the drafts for thi s elite force was a great honor. Private. William Rhodes was recorded as a member of the Light Infantry in September of 1778. In June 1779 the Light Infantry companies of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia Lines were combined in two regiments . Adjutant-General Alexander Scammell reported the following: "the above companies almost to the man are composed of proper-sized well-built men from the five feet seven to five feet nine inches high, who have been in actual service two, three , and some almost four years".

    The Light Infantry was put to the test on July 15, 1779 by the taking of a British fort at Stony Point on the Hudson River in New York. It was planned that Light Infantry alone would take the fortress. A Corps Light Infantry was organized into f our regiments. The companies were pulled from most of the Continental regiments of the various colonies. It was ordered that the officers be armed with spontoons or spears, and the soldiers with bayonets on unloaded muskets. The capture was to t ake place under the cover of darkness. It began around midnight, under a barrage of heavy cannon and musketry fire from the British fort at Stony Point. The Light Infantry captured the heavily-guarded fort without the Continentals firing a shot , capturing 532, with 80 killed or wounded. The 2nd Virginia was in the First Regiment commanded by Colonel. Christian Febiger of the Light Infantry Corps. The following is a letter from Colonel. Christian Febiger to Thomas Jefferson regarding t he storming of Stony Point: "To his Excellence, Governor Jefferson, of the State of Virginia July 21, 1779 Sir: You must undoubtedly before this have heard of and seen the particulars of our glorious and successful enterprise at Stony Point, whi ch renders my giving you a detail unnecessary. But as I had the honor to command all the troops from our State employed on that service I think it my duty, in justice to those brave men, to inform you that the front platoon of the forlorn hope , [the phrase "forlorn hope" in modern terms would be a suicide squad ], consisted of

    On morning of the 22d inst. after a lingering illness, William Rhodes, in the 86th year of age; leaving a wife and a large number of relations and friends to lament his loss. Mr. Rhodes was a soldier of the Virginia line on the Continental esnt-through the whole of the Revolutionary War. He was a man, in early life, of uncommon athletic powers; and in the course of his services if my memory serves me. (having received the facts from himself,) he received five severe wounds; by w hich he was so far disabled, that, for the last 8 or 10 years, he received small pettance from the bounty of his country, which served to smoothe his declining years. His remains were intered in this place on the 23d, with military honors, by C apt. Ambrozene's company of volunteers, in the presence of a large concourse of citizens and strangers. The following next address was spoken by Gen. Vance, at the time of the interment of Mr. Rhode's body. --Fellow citizens, and brother soldie rs--
    You have this day been called upon to pay the last tribute of respect to a departed solder of the Revolutionary Army: one who had not merely the honor of having his name enrolled amongst that band of patriots and worthis, but one whose bloodd the snows of Trenton, the fields of Princeton, and the battlements of Stony Point.
    Venerable man! Why didst thou not pay the debt of nature on the walls of York-Town, where the measure of thy glory was complete, and whence thy name would have have been, by faithful history handed down to posterity, as one of the martyrs ws were offered us for the liberties of their country! Yes, there thou wouldst have had the sympathetic tear of your beloved commander, the Father of his country, to have smoothed thy passage to the Eternal World! But why compain? Are not thy s ervice deeply engraven on the hearts of posterity? And notwithstanding thy mortal remains shall inhabit the cold confines of that vaulted clay, yet thy name shall live in the hearts of thy countrymen, a mausoleum that will be more lasting tha n monumental brass. Under our present feeling, must we not with the poet exclaim.--

    In death's terrific, icy arms, Lo! the illustrious soldier lies; He's free from care and war's alarms, Nor sees our tears nor hears our sighs.

    Cold is the heart where valor reign'd; Mute the tonge [tongue] that joy inspir'd; Still the arm that conquest gain'd, And dim the eye that glory fir'd.

    Too mean for him a world like this. He's landed on that happy shore Where all the saints partake of bliss, And heroes meet to part no more.

    Notes:

    The picture in the scrapbook shows 4 generations starting with John Fred Sowers. The back row is Richard Allender being held by Mildred Allender, John Sowers (son of Fred and Florence), and William Graham being held by Mabel Graham. The ft w is Florence Sowers, Barbara Allender, John Sowers, Marjorie Graham and Fred Sowers.

    Marjorie Graham remembers that John Fred Sowers gave his great-grandchildren pennies. He lived into his 90's. She remembers him staying at her house when she was a child and sitting on the front porch.


    Notes from Mabel Sowers Graham say that he did not like the name John King and changed it so that he went by John W. Sowers all is life. He moved to Clark County, Ohio, when he was a child and to Liberty Township, Logan County, in 1884.


    An article about John Sowers is found in Memoirs of the Miami Valley, Vol. III Biographical is found at the Logan County District Library (G 977.14 M533). The article is as follows;

    The entire career of John Sowers, of Liberty township, has been devoted to the vocations of farming and stock-raising, and during the past 28 years he has occupied his present property of 150 acres. He is a native of Grant county, Ind., born Ju ne 23, 1861, a son of Samuel and Mary (King) Sowers, natives of Clark County, Ohio. The parents, after their marriage, moved to Grant County, Indiana, but in 1865 returned to Clark County, and about 1885 came to Logan County where they made the ir home until their deaths. They followed the peaceful pursuits of agriculture, and won the esteem and respect of their fellow-citizens by their honorable lives. Mr. and Mrs. Sowers were the parents of nine children, of whom five are living : Edward, Elmer, Grant, John and Laura. John Sowers secured his education in the public schools of Champaign County where his parents had moved when he was about seven years of age, and after leaving school, remained with his father on the hom e place until 1892. In that year he rented his present property, a tract of 150 acres on which he has operated for a period of 28 years. Mr. Sowers has met with success, both in general farming and stock raising, and has 45 acres in corn, feed ing his grain to his 40 head of hogs. Mr. Sowers was married May 18, 1887 to Mary Crowl, who was born in Champaign County, Ohio, October 7, 1862, daughter of William and Ann (Mc Caughey) Crowl, and to this union there have been born two childre n; Lulu, who married Oscar Hartman and had two children, Muriel and Grace Marie: and Fred, who married Florence Tilton and has two children, Mabel and Mildred. William Crowl was born in Washington County, Maryland, whence he moved to Urbana Ohi o. There he married Ann McCaughey, who was born in Washington County, Indiana, and they settled on a farm in Champaign County where they passed the remainder of their lives. Mrs. Sowers was their only child. Mr. and Mrs. Sowers are consisten t members of the Presbyterian Church. In politics he is Republican, and his service to his community have included official work as a member of the school board.

    The Farm Journal Directory of Logan County, 1916, found at the Logan County Library, states that John W. and Mary E. Sowers are the tenants of a 150 acre farm on R4 West Liberty. It states they have two children, but son, Fred, had moved away . They had 4 horses and 35 cows. They had a telephone.

    1910 Census for Liberty Township, Logan County Ohio, lists John Sowers as head on the family, living with his wife Mary, son Fred, daughter, Lulu, and brother Elmer. John and Elmer were both born in Indiana; everyone else born in Ohio. John'so ccupation was listed as general farmer and Lulu's occupation was listed as seamstress.

    John married Mary Eliza Crowl 18 May 1887, Springhills Presbyterian Church, Champaign County OH. Mary was born 7 Oct 1862, Harrison Township, Champaign County, OH; died 14 Aug 1947, Near West Liberty, Logan County OH; was buried , Fairview Cemetery, West Liberty, Logan County OH. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    His obituary was found in the scrapbook of his great-niece Mabel Sowers Graham.

    Elmer W. Sowers, 68, was found dead in the barn, at the home of his brother John W. Sowers, and wife, with home he resided, one mile north of West Liberty, on the Bellefontaine road, last Friday afternoon, near 3 o'clock. Mr.. Sowers had eate n a hearty dinner, smoked a cigar, and about one o'clock went to the barn to look after some cattle. Mrs. Sowers was busy at her work and thought nothing about Elmer not returning to the house, and when her husband, who was away, came home abou t 3 o'clock, he went to the barn and found his brother lying dead on the barn floor. Dr. Herbert L. Mikesell, of West Liberty, County Coroner, was called, and gave a verdict of death from a heart attack.


    The obituary states he was born in Grant county, Indiana and moved with his parents first to Clark County, Ohio, then to Champaign County, and later to Logan County, where he lived with his brother, John, for over fifty years. He was of a famil y of nine children, eight brothers and one sister, of whom three brothers and the sister survive. They are Edward Sowers of California; Grant Sowers of Elkhart, Indiana, John W. Sowers of West Liberty, and Mrs. Laura Strayer of Bellefontaine.

    He was apparently in good health and his death came as a great shock to the family and entire community. For a great many years he had belong to the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and cherished the teachings of this Order. He leaves many re latives and friends to mourn his passing.

    Mabel Sowers Graham always referred to him as Uncle Batch ( I wonder if that was because he was a bachelor).

    In Grant Sower's obituary there is no " s" on his name. The correspondence I have addressed to him also spells his name Sower. I believe my mother Mabel Sowers told me a dispute between brothers resulted in the spelling differences but I dotw any details.

    His obituary states that Grant Sower spent his early years in Ohio in Logan and Champaign Counties where he attended high school, Normal school and the old Urbana University. He traced his lineage to the founding of Philadelphia in 1681. Eac h of the eight succeeding generations of the Sower family had contributed a Methodist minister. Rev. Mr. Sower was married to Louena Windson, daughter and granddaughter of Methodist ministers. Following his marriage Rev. Sower spent four year s teaching school and was superintendent of schools at Rushylvania before deciding to devote his life to the ministry. His first charge was at Rossville in 1895 and he served 18 years in the Ohio Conference before transferring to the Detroit co nference in 1913. in 1936 he went on a retired basis and the next year he and his family moved to North Muskegon, Michigan, where he served eight years until ill health caused him to retire in 1945. Rev. Mr. Sower was widely known as a lecture r and writer of special articles and poetry. While in Fenton, Michigan, he was appointed in 1925 a special speaker for the League of Nation's World Court Association in recognition of his platform work and press articles on international affair s which were widely circulated.

    I have in my possession in 2000 a scrapbook containing poetry and articles written by him as well as letters from President Coolidge's secretary.

    Grant married Louena Windsor 8 Sep 1891, Bellefontaine, Ohio. Louena was born 15 Dec 1872, New Holland, Ohio; died 26 May 1954, North Muskegon, Michigan; was buried , Fairview Cemetery, West Liberty, Logan County, OH. [Group Sheet]
