Newton C. Rhodes3 (John B.2, Alex.1) was born November 8, 1836 in Illinois. He was married twice. First to Laura Ann Farrar, on March 16, 1859, and to his second wife, Mary Jane (Smith) Duncan on November 5, 1867. Both marriages took place in Macoupin County, Illinois. Mary Jane was living with her son, Charles Franklin Rhodes, in Montgomery County, Illinois when the 1900 census was taken. She was born in Illinois in November 1842 according to the census report that year. The family was living in Litchfield Township, Montgomery County, Illinois in 1870, and in Macoupin County, Illinois in 1880. We have record of five children for Newton and his second wife, Mary Jane Smith. Mary Jane was previously married to a Mr. Duncan. The fourth and fifth children of Newton and Mary Jane were twins who were designated as Mary's 13th and 14th children in the record of their births; however, we don't know how many children Mary Jane may have had by her first husband.
