Rhoda Simril Cunningham
Birth: Mar., 1733, Ireland
Death: Jan. 12, 1831
Bedford County
Tennessee, USA

Rhoda was the daughter of James Simril and Margaret Ware. She married Humphrey Cunningham on 29 June 1752 in Hanover Township, Lancaster Co., PA. Humphrey died in 1806 in Buncombe Co., NC. Rhoda moved with her children to Bedford County, TN and lived with James and Sarah Cunningham Patton.

The following sketch was published in the Bedford County newspaper by Col. Andrew Erwin in the early part of the nineteenth century: "Rhoda Cunningham, of Bedford County, Tennessee, who is in her 93rd year, is the ancestor at this time of 306 living descendants, children and grandchildren born to the fourth generation. What is most consolatory to the declining years of this most honorable matron is that out of this long line of descendants none have yet done ought to detract from the character of an honest family, but all are esteemed as worthy citizens engaged in the most laudable pursuits of life, earning their bread by the sweat of their brows."
