I need help to locate any info on the Rhoades family who lived in Hemple during the early 1920's. Henry Alvin Rhoades and wife, Frances Mary Wright, had 12 children at that time and 18 in all. I know that two died while they were living in Hemple and are buried nearby. The funeral home in St. Joseph, MO only listed Hemple, MO as the site for the burial. Claude Shelby died 1925 and Wilvia Fae died 1923. Her name is spelled Rhodes at funeral home. She was taken to the hospital for autopsy, I don't know why Claude was taken to St. Joseph. Their other children are: Leeta Mae 1907 who md Sherman Taft Phillips, Ira Everett 1910, Clifford 1912, Eleanor 1914, Wayne 1915, James Urcel 1917, Floyd Willard 1919, Frances Ruth 1920, Max Floy 1921, Coda Ray 1924, Cecil Clyd 1926. Born after leaving Hemple area were: Wanda Irene 1928, Naurene 1929, Elizabeth Viola 1931, Jean 1933 and Jackie Don 1936. I have checked the cemetery listings and cannot locate the two names. I know they were supposed to be buried in Lebanon Cemetery, but had no tombstones, only funeral markers which are gone. It was reported to me that records were stored in the Church across the highway which is no longer there. Are there any records of early burial elsewhere? RHOADES/RHODES
