Henry Rhodes Postmaster

I don't know which Henry Rhodes this is for but I thought I'd write it on here so it wouldn't get too lost . . .

"Henry Rhodes established the post office at Ranger, Perry, Indiana. He was appointed Postmaster Nov 27, 1866. Miss Frances J. Cassidy was next appointed April 7, 1873. It was the 3 March 1873 that Henry Rhodes moved his family ot Livingston Co., Kentucky. Rumor has it that he operated a store at Ranger, Indiana." - Source: Mrs. Edith Hilgenhold, granddaughter of Sylvester Rhodes

update: according to some correspondence that I recently read this Henry that was the first postmaster was born 16 Jan 1827 and married Brunette Spencer.
