Can you help me find the parrents of Rhoda McDade (b. 1821 NC, d. aft 1870 KY)?
She is listed as Rhoda Broils in the 1850 Census of Dickson County (TN) with a 11-year-old son Hiram, so she married about 1838. She was listed as Rhoda Mathis in the 1870-1880 Censuses of Trigg County (KY). She was listed as Rhoda McDade on the death certificate of her daughter Godfrey Mariah "Mariar" (Mathis) Newton.
There was a Rhoda "Rhody" McDade (b. 1784) who was the daughter of Willis McDade (b. 1739 VA, d. 1823 NC). I wondered if her brother John McDade (b. 1759 NC) named a daughter after his sister. His family moved to Fayette County (TN) by 1840. I can't find the 1830 Census for John McDade or his will, where a daughter might be listed.
