As I am planning to have my book draft totally done this year of my
book "Cedar Creek Friends and Its People". I am trying one last time
to reach people who know they relate to this list of early Cedar Creek
members. I have tried to add some data after them to help you.
Please do not write and ask me to do research for you to see if your
ancestor is one of them. I do not have the time and would never get
the book done. I would like your information by March if possible. I
am looking for family stories and pictures as well as dates and places.
If you have ever read stories in county histories, something like
those stories, if not go to your library and check out how they are
written. Scan pictures at 300 dpi or send me pictures and I will scan
and return. Please write the story as you want it in the book. I may
go over it and return for you to verify. Your name should be at the
end of the story "submitted by ___________."
This listing is from the early records of Cedar Creek Preparative
Meeting and is the best listing for the early members. Those with a *

I'm trying to break through my brick wall and I'm almost half way there. My
husband's direct ancestors, Joseph R. & Mariah Rhoades were residing in
Jackson Twp., Henry Co., Iowa by 1870. They were residing in Salem Twp., as
early as 1854.
Joseph Rhoads b abt 1794, NJ came to Wayne Twp., Marion County, Indiana with
his parents & siblings as early settlers of that area in the mid 1820's. By
1852-1854, Joseph & Mariah headed to Iowa and probably with a son, David b
It wasn't until early this week that I finally came across where Joseph &
Mariah were residing. I had presumed they had died in Marion County, IN. I'm
hoping there is someone who might know of where they might be buried. I'm
assuming they died prior to 1880 as I haven't been able to locate them.
Their son, David is still residing in Jackson Twp in 1900.
Any help will be appreciated
