Rhoda Wilder was b. 1841 & was the daughter of Reason Wilder and Margaret Jackson. She was married to Benjamin Howard and during the marriage had 2 sons - Reason b. 1861 and James b. 1863. The divorce was extremely nasty (Rhoda wasn't in court but all of Ben's relatives were the witnesses and court officers.) and Reason claimed she cheated and the kids weren't his. Rhoda brought up her sons as Wilders at Rose Hill in Lee Co. and went on to have William b. 1868 and Martha b. 1877. I am looking for when and where James, William and Martha died as I want to see who is listed as their fathers. Reason always acknowledged Ben as his father.
