MotherAnna "Annie" Custer3 b. March 1, 1780, d. January 3, 1850
     Rhoda Gray From notes of Lelia or Lula Sowder: "My grandmother (Rhoda Gray Sowder) had lost her husband in the Civil War and had three sons and a daughter. The oldest - William Sowder - was 8 yrs. old, then Peter, Martha Ann and John an infant to bring up alone. She was known over the country as a remarkable woman - to bring up four children, run the farm and make a good living. She is said to have ridden her horse over the farm to direct the hired help and her sons when they were old. They grew up to be good and respected men. As each one married she gave him his share of the land on which to build a house and rear his family. Since the land joined - and three married - one stayed with his mother - it could have been called the "Sowder Compound". She was buried at Gray, Poff, and Kropff Family Cemetery, Rt. 221, across from Simpson's Store, Check, Floyd Co., Virginia; Her stone was erected by her son P. A. Sowder.5,3 She was born on September 19, 1824 at Natural Bridge, Rockbridge Co., Virginia.5,4,3 She married Jacob Sowder, son of Anthony Sowder and Sarah Catherine "Caty" Snuffer, on December 21, 1848 at Floyd Co., Virginia.2,4 As of December 21, 1848,her married name was Sowder. Rhoda Gray Rhoda Sowder applied for Confederate Pension in 1888 and was still on the annual Confederate Pension List in 1909 in 1888.6 She died on April 7, 1913 at Locust Grove, Floyd Co., Virginia, at age 88.5,4,3 She Rhoda Sowder was born September 19, 1824 - died April 7, 1913, making her stay on earth 88 years, 6 months, and 18 days. She was the youngest of a family of fourteen children. Her father was Joseph Gray, from England; her mother whose maiden name was Mary Howard, was of English and French decent. Both families were well know pioneer stock. Rhoda was married to Jacob Sowder at the age of twenty-four years, and never moved but one time during her life, and that we from her parents's home to where she lived and died. Their family consisted of four children, W. J. Sowder, who died in Roanoke three years ago, Peter A. Sowder, who lives at the home place, Mrs. W. B. Gray of Graysville, and John Sowder, now living in Roanoke County. Her husband, Jacob Sowder, died in Richmond in the War in 1862. He was a true patriotic Southern soldier. [Thereafter] She lived with her son, Peter A. Sowder. Mrs. Sowder was a remarkable woman, full of energy, industry and economy, and cared for her family during the War, making a good living during those dark gloomy years. She was plain of speech and possessed a wonderful memory. Her logical argument on the cause of the War and its effects was such as would throw in the shade many men of intelligence. She was truthful and honest, and had but little respect for any one who disregarded either. - Noah Wilson in July, 1913.7,4
