I am not related but thought this information might be helpful to a Rhoads researcher. On page 160 of History of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania you can find the following information:
"PETER RHOADS. Among the patriots of Allentown and vicinity, the man who attained the highest civil positions in the Revolutionary period, was PETER RHOADS. Born in Whitehall township in April, 1737, two miles north of the present city of Allentown, the son of DANIEL ROTH, a native of Switzerland, who died in the same hour in which his son was born, he was educated among the Quakers, by whom he was persuaded to change the spelling of his name to RHOADS."
