There is no will for a John Rhodes in the Loudoun Will Books. There is only
this, from my book “Loudoun Co Will Book Abstracts, Books A-Z, Dec 1757 –
Appraisal of 12 Oct 1805: Court order dated Jul 1805; farm and household
items, totaling $393.43. Appraisers: James GRADY, William BLEAKLY, Martin
OVERFIELD. Returned to court 14 Oct 1805. [G:397]
A John Rhodes is mentioned as a witness on several deeds in early Loudoun,
but there are no deeds for him as a purchaser or seller of property.
>From Abstracts of the List of Tithables 1758-1781 by the Sparcios:
Rhodes, John; Negro Sam – 2 tithables List taken by Har. Lane in 1779
Note this is the same year that Tholemiah Rhodes first appears on the lists.

Note that Tholemiah Rhodes also had a son named John. The term Battalion was
for both militia and tax purposes and denoted a district. The second
Battalion or Cameron Parish was located in the southeast section of Loudoun.
There just aren’t many records for a John Rhodes in Loudoun.
