Rhodes, John (d. 1766)
John Rhodes (died 1766), a Mennonite minister, born near Zürich, Switzerland, immigrated to America in 1728, settled in Shenandoah County, Virginia, in 1730, and later moved to Page County, Virginia. In August 1766 eight Indians led by a white man massacred eight members of this family. Two daughters escaped and one son was held captive for two years by the Indians in their camps west of the Ohio River.
