William Rhodes Ancestor of Carl Rhodes

William Rhodes was born about 1745, probably in Virginia. On September 1st, 1775 at Alexandria, Virginia he enlisted as a private soldier in the 2nd Virginia Regiment. His tour of duty took him from as far north as New York, and as far south as Georgia. In 1778 William was chosen to be in the Light Infantry Company of his regiment. The men in these companies where hand picked from each regiment, and were the best soldiers in their unit. He was promoted to corporal in 1779. William fought in most of the major battles of the Revolution, along was a number of untold skirmishes. Corporal Rhodes was wounded many times in battle, five times severely. William Rhodes was discharged in Richmond, Virginia, about July 3, 1783 after nearly seven years of loyal service to his country. He in time received five hundred sixteen & 2/3-acres land for his service.

William Rhodes married Susannah ________ not long after the war; they lived in Pennsylvania for a time, then moved to Mason Co., Kentucky about 1790. William, Susannah and their family may have moved to Ohio in about 1800; on December 31, 1804 while William was living in Greene Co. Ohio, he made his first payment on 160-acres land just south of present day Urbana.
