Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Rhoads (and variant spellings) families who came from Germany, Hesse, Prussia, and Switzerland. Some allied families came from Baden, England, Holland, and Ireland. Focus is on the descendants of Henry (Henrick, Hendrick, Heinrich) Rhoads (Rhodt, Rode, Rodt), Sr. (1712-1774) of Mannheim, Germany. He married Catherine or Katherina Rheindhardt (1714-1774). In 1737, Henry emigrated from Germany on the ship "William,” and settled in Frederick County, Maryland in 1757. He later moved to Bedford (now Somerset) County, Pennsylvania. One of Henry’s sons, Capt. Henry Rhoads, Jr. (1739-1814) married Elizabeth "Dovey" Stoner. After the Revolutionary War, Capt. Henry and his brothers established an historic homestead in Browder, Logan (now Muhlenburg) County, Kentucky. Henry Sr. and other family are buried there at the Rhoades Cemetery. Some Rhoads were Baptists, Episcopalians, and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the 1700s, Rhoads lived in Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. During the 1800s, some moved to Arizona, Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Later descendants also lived in Russia, and in Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and elsewhere.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
