In search of our heritage
Jan Compere Rhodes Welcome to the home page of Jan and Larry Rhodes. This is an all-volunteer, totally amateur operation, and a work in progress. Jan has found that her roots (Russell, Coleman, Harrington, Tarkington) channeled through Hickman County, Tennessee, while others (Compere, Mullins) came out of Leicestershire through Mississippi and Arkansas, (Rice), North Carolina to Missouri, and (Chiles, Crow), Missouri, Georgia, and Texas. Larry RhodesLarry found ancestors (Rhodes, Garren, Barnhill, Lanning) in the hollows and ridges of Hooper's Creek Township, Henderson County; some (Frady, Powers) in Limestone Township, Buncombe County; and others (Carter, Liles, Eure, Parker) who cleared and tilled the soils of the coastal plains in Nash and other North Carolina counties. Our passion is in the search -- what we find matters less.
