Rhonda was the daughter of the farmer James Mathews and Martha McCarry of Virginia.

She married the millwright William James Ellis on 15 July 1833 in Highland Co., Virginia.

They had 13 children that they named in the order of their births: James William, Nancy, Martha, Susan, Harriet, Eliza, John M, Rhoda, Mary, Joanna, Sarah J, George F and Francis Marion Ellis.

In November 1849 the family relocated to Mahaska Co., Iowa and that is where Rhoda and William now rest side by side forever in the White Oak Grove cemetery.
