The majority of the Rhodes cousins involved in the Rhodes atDNA Study are descended from Alexander Rhodes (1790-1840). A few others represent Rhodes lines from outside of Fayette County, Illinois. [PR001] is descended from Israel Rhodes (1794-1872) and shares 30cMs with [PC0012], who is descended from McComas Rhodes (1799-1867). It’s projected that they would share [PR001]’s 2nd great grandparents (parents of Israel Rhodes), which lines up well with the hypothesis that McComas Rhodes (1794-1872) is a sibling of Alexander Rhodes (1790-1840) and Israel Rhodes (1794-1872).
