RHODA/Wm-Steele* #5842/1852 F 300

*Much of the information on Rhoda Ray was furnished by Gail DeGeorge, a volunteer at Wilson's Creek National Battlefield near Republic, Missouri.

RHODA was living with John Ray who had married Steele's widow, Roxanna. According to records at Wilson's Creek National Battlefield [John Ray and family lived on the battlefield] Rhoda had four daughters. It was suggested that Rhoda moved to St. Louis after the war. In a Greene County, Missouri, marriage index is listed a Rhoda Ray getting married to a John Jones, on July 10, 1868. In the 1870 Federal Census of Greene County, Missouri, is a John Jones, black, 35, born in Georgia, Rosa [Rhoda ?], black, 30, born in Georgia, and four daughters, Mahala, Hannah, Millie, and Hettie. In the Springfield, Greene County, Missouri Inhabitants in 1880, compiled by Wm. Kearney Hall from the 1880 Federal Census, Rhoda is listed with her husband, John Jones. A granddaughter, Frances Price, is also listed. Frances married Rubin Crain in Greene County, Missouri, on March 22, 1903. He died July 29, 1909, and is buried in Lot 66 of South Hazelwood Cemetery in Springfield, Missouri. Rhoda Jones has an obituary in The Springfield Republican newspaper of November 4, 1897, stating "Mrs Rhoda Jones, colored, 60 years old...died yesterday at her home, corner of Robberson avenue and Olive street....will be buried in South Hazelwood cemetery this morning." Millie Steele [daughter of Rhoda Ray who originally belong to the family of William Steele [John Ray's wife, Roxanna's first husband] married Marshall Campbell at Wilson Creek Chapel on February 19, 1880. They had a son named Paul Campbell who was 20 in the 1900 census. Millie Price died January 20, 1882. Hettie [Ettie in marriage certificate] married John Price on July 19, 1880. A Hettie Price, "a colored woman 82 years of age," was struck by a car and killed on March 17, 1946, in Springfield, Missouri; [Greene County, Missouri, Coroner's Index Book 14, page 22]. She left a daughter, Mrs. Frances Wright. She died on December 6, 1959.

CUMBY or COMBY/Steele Family [?] #1501/1867 F*

*CUMBY/COMBY is mentioned as the widow of Richard Cannefax in this 1867 file. There is a probability that she was a slave belonging to the Steele family. SEE also RICHARD/Chesley Cannefax[?]

37-SLAVES/D.-D.-Berry [mentioned to amend 'slave census from 1857 tax book]*

*Berry had married Letitia, the widow of Josiah Danforth, and it is possible that some of these unnamed slaves came from that estate. There are blacks and mulattos with the Berry name in the 1870 census, but without a listing of slave names it is not possible to directly place them with the D. D. Berry estate.
