James S. Rhodes

JAMES S. RHODES, farmer, Washington, Wilkes County, Georgia, son of William W. and Frances E. (Hackney) Rhodes, was born in Wilkes County, Georgia, Nov. 7, 1856. Until twenty years of age he lived and worked on the home farm and attended the common schools of the county at such intervals as his services could be dispensed with. Himself and one brother, were the only children, both are living.

In 1876 he commenced the battle of life, and so far he has been successful, and placed himself in comfortable circumstances, gaining and retaining the respect and confidence of his fellow-citizens.

Mr. Rhodes was married Jan. 9, 1879, to Miss Nora, daughter of Jonathan Smith, of Wilkes County, who has borne him ten children, four sons and six daughters, of whom one son is dead. He has been a consistent member of the Baptist Church since 1886.
