  of 76

The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, July 25, 1907

On last Friday afternoon, JAMES M. RHODES, who was a teamster in Chariton, was hauling cinders from the light plant, and went to a well across the street to get a drink of water. On returning he threw up his hands, made an
ejaculation, fell and in a moment expired. He had previously been troubled with a heart affection, and it is believed the intense heat brought on the fatal attack.


JAMES MADISON RHODES was born in New York State in 1840. He resided there until fifteen years of age, when he moved to Minnesota. In 1864 with his family, he moved to Lucas County settling on a farm in Cedar Township. A few years later he moved to Missouri, returning to Chariton about 18 years ago, which city has ever since been his home. He was married to MISS JENNIE NOBLET, who died a few years later. Of this union three children were born; ERNEST, of Chariton; MRS. MINNIE POUL, of Hutchinson, Kansas; and IRA, of Carrolton, Mo.

He was again married on December 18, 1862, to JENNIE DEYO, who still survives him. Of this union ten cihldren were born, nine of whom are living SHERMAN; MRS. ANNA LANE; MRS. AGNES PARR; MARY; GOLDIE; TESSIE; MYRTLE and JAMES, of Chariton, and MRS. SARAH BROCHERT, of Carrolton, Mo. MR. RHODES was overcome while at work by the heat on Friday afternoon, which resulted in total heart failure. The funeral services were held from the Baptist Church at 9 o'clock on Monday morning, July 22, under the direction of Rev. F.B. Palmer; interment took place in the country cemetery, nine miles east of town.
