Captain James Rhodes   1819-1901 

                       brother of Col William Rhodes

James Rhodes (uncle Jimmie) was Col William Rhodes's older brother.

He was born in Bramhope, Otley, York, England

He came and lived in Canada with his brother at times, and summered in Tadoussac.

As the oldest male he inherited from his parents, and it looks like he enjoyed his visits to Quebec.
