Mary A. Rhodes was born between 1834-1836 in Henderson County, NC to Unknown Rhodes. I worked awhile on this family but was unable to find her parents. In the 1850 Census she is living with her brother and his wife, Eli and Sarah Caroline Roberts Rhodes.

At this point, I would like to insert the work I did on Eli Rhodes and Sarah Caroline Roberts family. I did follow as many of Eli and Sarah's children as I could and I have that information if someone wants it. Just email me. This is not my direct line (my direct line was his sister, Mary A. Rhodes Conner) but I followed Eli's family up to a point in order to see if there were any clues to their grandparents. I didn't find it but I may come across this later in my research.

Eli Rhodes was born 1/1824 in NC and died between 1910-1920 in Henderson County, NC. Sarah Caroline Roberts was born 6/1827 in NC and died between 1910-1920 in Henderson County, NC. I have not found a death certificate for either of them and don't know where they are buried.

Now back to Ervin McCoy Conner and Mary A. Rhodes.

Confederate NC Troops
25th Regiment, NC Infantry

The 25th Infantry Regiment, formerly the 15th Volunteers, was assembled at Camp Patton, Asheville, North Carolina, in August, 1861. The following counties furnished companies for the regiment: Henderson, Jackson, Haywood, Cherokee, Transylvania, Clay, Macon, and Buncombe. It moved to Grahamville, South Carolina and remained there until March, 1862. The unit then moved back to North Carolina and arrived in Virginia on June 24. Serving in R. Ransom's and M.W. Ranson's Brigade, it fought with the army from the Seven Day's Battles to Fredericksburg, served in North Carolina, then saw action at Plymouth and Drewery's Bluff. Later the 25th participated in the long Petersburg siege south of the James River and the Appomattox Campaign. It reported 128 casualties during the Seven Days' Battles, 15 in the Maryland Campaign, 88 at Fredericksburg, and 103 at Plymouth. Many were disabled at Sayler's Creek, and on April 9, 1865, only 8 officers and 69 were present. The field officers were Colonels Thomas L. Clingman and Henry M. Rutledge; Lieutenant Colonels S.C. Bryson, St. Clair Dearing, and Matthew N. Love; and Majors John W. Francis, William S. Grady, and William Y. Morgan.

Mary A. Rhodes Conner

Mary A. Rhodes was born between 1834-1836 in Henderson County and died between 1900-1909 in Fairview, Buncombe County, NC

Her son, Mack Coy Conner's death certificate lists his mother as Mary Williams but his brother's (William Washington Conner) and sister's (Minerva Louisa Conner Bradley) death certificate lists her as Mary A. Rhodes.

If you do the math, Eli Grady Conner cannot be Mary A. Rhodes and Ervin McCoy Conner's son. Eli Grady Conner was born in 1867 about 5 years after Ervin McCoy Conner had died. But in the 1870, 1880 Censuses he is living with her and in the 1900 Census she is living with him and his family and is listed as his mother. Here is his death certificate:

Death Certificate #314, Registration District #58-00, Certificate #20, Grady Eli Connor (sic), DOD 8/29/1935 at Route 1, Marshall, Madison County, NC
Usual Residence: Route 1, Marshall, Madison County, NC
Male, White, Married to Mrs. Dosha Connor
DOB 1866 in NC, 69 yrs old
Occupation: Farmer, last date he worked at this occupation: 1933
Father: John Connor born in NC
Mother: Rodey Roach (sic) born in NC
Informant: Miss Venie Connor (sic, his daughter was Lavenia Conner) of Marshall, NC
DOD 8/29/1935. Physician attended deceased from 4/1935 to 8/1935 and last saw him alive on 8/25/1935. Death occurred at 10:30pm
Cause of death: Pulmonary Tuberculosis (duration since 1933)
Contributory cause: adenomatous goiter (duration about 10-15 yrs ago)
Burial: 8/31/1935 at Flint Hill Cemetery
Undertaker: O.C. Rector, Marshall, NC

I haven't been able to find this John Conner and Rhoda Roach yet. There are only 2 explanations for the relationship between Eli and Mary A. Rhodes Conner....1) He was illegitimate and his death certificate is incorrect (I have definitely seen that before), or 2) He was adopted by her after his parents died and they considered each other as mother and son. I have had contact with a descendant from the General Vance Conner (son of Grady Eli Conner and Dosha Thula Lankford) family and she supported the story that Eli is an illegitimate son of Mary's. It seems she met a man named Pryor and was going to marry him but he was killed at the end of the War too and she was pregnant when he died. She honored this son, Grady Eli Conner, with her husband's last name. My source said that this was not a secret within the immediate family and Eli was treated as a Conner all his life. Which speaks highly of the Conner family. Eli knew of his parentage and his mother told him that she was fortunate to have known love in her lifetime. I still don't know why his death certificate had the wrong parents listed.

I did notice that in 1870 all 4 siblings are living with Mary A. Rhodes Conner. They were young. But in the 1880 Census only Minerva and little Eli are living with Mary A. Rhodes Conner although McCoy and Washington Conner are only 19 and 20 years old and are unmarried (they both married in 1885). Why would they leave their mother, sister and young brother during such hard times? I found McCoy Conner living with a Reeder family in Madison County, NC (where he settled until the day he died). I found Washington Conner living with the Hendersons in Madison County, NC just 2 houses away from where McCoy Conner was living with the Reeders. He also lived in Madison County, NC until he died. An illegitimate child might have made the children of McCoy angry with Mary and Eli. Or is it possible that they were making wages somewhere else and sending money home? And in the 1900 Census, Mary A. Rhodes Conner is living with Eli as his "Mother" and she lists that she only has 1 child and 1 child still living. What about her other 3 children by Ervin McCoy Conner? This could be a census taker's mistake or some confusion on his part. Or does it indicate a rift? Evidently Mary did visit the younger McCoy Conner and his family because my Great Grandmother Lily remembers her coming to visit.

Mary Conner was Grandma Conner to Lillian Vianna Conner Reese and Lily remembers she "wouldnt' say harm of her but she couldn't stand her." When she would come to visit she would sleep with Lily and Lily said she would wiggle around trying to make the straw and feather ticking form around her. Her Grandma Conner was a good cook.

Lily Conner Reese also said that her father, Mack, left home when he was 19 yrs old. She said his mother, Mary, left a dishpan full of water while she went to throw the slop to the hogs. When she came back the pan was empty and hanging on the chair post. She got mad and it must have been quite an argument because Mack left home. This story makes the rift between mother and son NOT about Eli and his parentage but more of a "last straw" argument between a teenage young man feeling his oats and his mother. So I don't know the full story.

**********************************************************

Ervin McCoy Conner and Mary A. Rhodes had 3 (4) children (see above explanation):

1) Minerva Louise Conner (DOB 10/20/1858 in Henderson County, NC; DOD 3/1/1931 in Edneyville, Henderson County, NC) married W. John Mangus Bradley.

2) William Washington Conner (DOB 9/15/1860 in Madison County, NC; DOD 9/29/1939 in Madison County, NC) married Lydia Kate Fisher. Aka Wash Conner.

3) McCoy Conner (DOB 7/24/1861 in Henderson County, NC; DOD 7/2/1950 in Madison County, NC) married Margaret Alice Ensley. Aka Mack Coy Conner.
