 I did a Y-DNA test with SMGF last year that shows an exact match to a Dudley in Constable, NY.  Who is a direct descendant of Gov. Thomas Dudley of MA.


Would like to find the Dudley, who changed his name to Rhodes in the 1730’s.


 A new found Rhodes uncle in 1966 told me that our ancestor, his son, and two brothers were privateers for the British Navy. Their eye sight got so bad they couldn’t tell British ships from Spanish ships.


They were captured and taken to London as pirates. My ancestor was hung from a yard arm by the British Navy. His two brothers and son were taken to the southern colonist to work in the rice and indigo fields. They didn’t like the working conditions and escaped.
