Rufus King WALTERS and Rhoda CAWTHON were married on 31 January 1839.205 Rhoda CAWTHON, daughter of William CAWTHON and Rhoda WALTERS, was born on 7 August 1815.197 She died before 1880 at the age of 65.197
Although the Walters book gave Rhoda a death date of 19 Jan 1899 - I believe that to be very wrong. She was not with Rufus in 1880 - he was living with their son George and had a much younger wife named Ellen and stepchildren with the surname Ford. I believe she died before 1880 and Rufus King Walters remarried.
