States: Missouri: Stoddard
I am descended from following families: James Rhoades, Joseph Lavender, Loucretia Halek (sp?), and Susannah Hefner. All these families were in Stoddard County between 1830-1850. James Rhoades was born in TN about 1811 and married into the Halek and Hefner families in Stoddard Co. Joseph Lavender was born in 1812, possibly in Franklin Co., VA. There were several marriages between the children of James Rhoades and Joseph Lavender. About 1855, the Rhoades and Lavender families moved to TX settling in various counties in north central TX. James Rhoades was a pioneer doctor, who died about 1867, probably in Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto Co., TX. About that same time, Joseph Lavender and most of the Rhoades and Lavender families moved to Colorado and eventually to Washington and Oregon, where Joseph Lavender died in 1894. I am looking for the parents of James Rhoades, Joseph Lavender, Loucretia Halek, and Susannah Hefner. I have a great deal of information on these families to share. Any information will be appreciated.
