William WISHARD and Elizabeth "Betsy" RHODES were married on 7 October 1802 in Fleming County, Kentucky.13 Elizabeth "Betsy" RHODES was born in 1784 in Maryland.13 She died in 1868 at the age of 84 in Grove Twp., Jasper County, Illinois.13

Beals lists Betsey as daughter of William Wishard Jr's stepmother. Armstrong does not. According to the marriage date of Jacob Rhodes & Elizabeth and estimated birthdate of Betsey as well as a birthplace as Maryland, it's very questionable. A family Tree on FamilySearch gives her parents as Beacham Rhoades and Margaret McCarney - I'm sure Beacham Rhodes was her father - she names a son Beacham Rhoades Wishard.

1830 Census. Perry Twp, Marion Co, IN
Elizabeth Wishard: 1m -5, 2m 5-10, 1m 10-15, 1m 15-20; 1f 10-15, 1f 15-20, 1f age 40-50

There must have been some hesitation about marrying the second time. This was recorded twice: "HOOKER,William" "WISHARD,Elizabeth" 26-Oct-1831, as well as 25 Jun 1834.

In the 1850 Johnson Co Census Pheby Wishard is shown as living with David Brewer and his wife Clarinda. Pheby is 33 years of age, born in KY, has real estate valued at $400. [I can't place the Brewers; no Wishard named Clarinda that I can find.]
