He married Mary Treadway about 1746. The couple had five sons, Thomas, George, James, Daniel and Crispen. [All named in the will of Thomas Treadway, their grandfather, in 1783.] The Bevans/Grill Family tree at Ancestry.com lists a sixth son, William. If the couple had a son, William, he died before Thomas Treadway made his will.
14 April 1752: A survey was filed for a 19 acre tract called "Clotworthy's Harbor" in the name of Clotworthy Cunningham in Baltimore Co., Maryland.

Note: The "Ashley Family Tree," among others posted on Ancestry.com, suggests that the Cunningham family had its origins in Dysart, Fife, Scotland. Dysart is now a suburb of Kirkaldy and a conservation area.

Clotworthy/Clothworthy Cunningham and Mary Treadway were married circa 1746 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, British America.1 Mary Treadway, daughter of Thomas Treadway and Mary Ann Glover, was born on 8 Nov 1726 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, British America. She died after Oct 1780 at the age of 53 in Harford Co., Maryland, United States.

Second Generation
 
2.  James Cunningham1,59 (Clotworthy/Clothworthy-1) was born circa 1752 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, British America.1 He died in Jun 1799 at the age of 47 in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.8 Much of the information about the Cunningham family comes from the memoir written by Isaac Prall, son of Isaac and Ann Bethia [Rhodes] Prall, on 6 May 1915: "A short history of my ancestry on my mother's side -- also some on my father's side" [included here is the portion that applies to the Cunningham family]
"James Cunningham of Baltimore City, Maryland, who was an officer in the War of 1812, who had one son and six daughters, the son's name was James, who became a sea captain. He traded in different countries and on one trip, he was overtaken by Pirates and robed [sic] of his vessel and cargo, I think, and so severe was the struggle between him and the pirates that they shot and tore his sails to shreds, and all of his crew took refuge in the ship, but he took the helm and steered the crippled craft until they overtook him and came on board, and whipped him until the blood ran down, although he had on a heavy overcoat, so they landed him at some town and made him a prisoner in an upper room for some time, but he being a Freemason and also a Redman kept watching persons passing by and signing distress signs of both those orders until he got the attention of one who made his plight known to the American Consul, and he was released.

Some years after that, he went to help Spain in a war. He led the fleet that made the first capture of Gibraltar. A ball struck one of the masts of his vessel, and a splinter struck his wrist and crippled him. He also had a throat disease. He came home and after a while he started back to Spain to settle his claim of $ 80,000. and he got in sight of their capital and died. His people never recovered his baggage, nor watch, nor anything of his claims. And regarding his sisters - they all married sea captains and Harriet married Captain Zackeria Rhodes and he is supposed to have been lost in the Chesapeake Bay. His vessel's name was Polix and Castor. so his daughter Ann B. Rhodes was my mother. She was a woman of some education, a splendid writer, and I think about the best reader I ever heard. and of strong Christian Character. She and my father were married in 1828, to them were born eleven children, seven sons and four daughters, one died in infancy.

Regarding my mothers five aunts, they married Captain Carman and Captain Etchberger, and Captain Porter, and Captain Hunt and Captain Brown - all of Baltimore City, Maryland. These were all sea captains. Mother Aunt Bathia married Captain Porter and sailed with him on a nine months' trip in a sailing vessel. They were in England, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and I think in some other country. They had quite an adventurous trip and saw strange sights. They saw flying fish and monkeys and the beautiful birds of the tropics, also the great waves of the sea running high and the sun drawing water."

Isaac Prall's account, like all "family stories," has some level of accuracy. The elder James, it has been learned, died in 1799. The younger James was of the right age to have served in the War of 1812 and was probably the James who had the adventures described above.
  A search of Baltimore records turned up several Cunningham marriages, records of residences in Baltimore's Fells Point [home to the seafaring trades], and ties to other members of the family.
The marriage of one of James' daughters to a man named Hunt has not been located. There are a half dozen female Cunningham marriages in Baltimore between 1799 and 1810 that could fit the missing daughter. Isaac Prall had several incorrect details in his story and could have been in error on the Hunt name.
 
Zachariah Rhodes of Baltimore died at sea in 1815, with his brother Perry. Isaac had recorded the Rhodes ship as the "Pollix and Castor" when in reality it was the "Hannah." Not all of the spouses appear to have been sea captains, but they did work in the maritime industries. This included the senior James Cunningham. These will be dealt with under the individuals concerned.

The wife of James Cunningham was Pathiah [or Bathiah] Standiford, whom he married in 1773. Ann Cunningham married William Carman in 1799. Betsy Ann Cunningham married John Brown in 1796. Charlotte Cunningham married William Etchberger in 1803. Bethiah [Bathiah/Pathiah] Cunningham married Ralph Porter in 1803. Harriet Cunningham married Zachariah Rhodes in 1810. Bethiah Cunningham Porter married Cornelius Prall in Harford Co. in 1827. This explains the above reference to "Mother Aunt Bathia." She was step-mother to the Prall children and the aunt of their mother, Ann, who married Isaac R. Prall in 1828.

James was probably born about 1752 to Clotworthy and Mary Ann [Treadway] Cunningham in Baltimore County. The Cunninghams apparently lived in the eastern part of the county that became Harford County, Maryland in 1774. A James Cunningham was named on the 1776 tax list for the Gunpowder Upper Hundred. James was also listed as over 18 in 1778 for the Gunpowder Upper Hundred. John Bond Sr. conveyed land to James in 1780. However, James was enumerated in the 1790 US Census for Baltimore. [1 male over 16, 2 males under 16 and 7 females.]

The death of James Cunningham was reported in the 6 July 1799 issue of the
Baltimore Federal Gazette: "Died at St. Thomas, captain Patch, Mr. James Cunningham, Mr. Wm. Dana, the captain, supercargo*, and passenger, of the schooner Rover, of Boston."
Cunningham's death probably occurred two weeks to a month before it was reported in the Baltimore paper, allowing for the time it would take the news to reach the U.S. from the Virgin Islands. James would have the "supercargo" [cargo master] referred to in the death announcement from the
Boston Federal Gazette.
*A supercargo (from Spanish sobrecargo) is a person employed on board a vessel by the owner of cargo carried on the ship. The duties of a supercargo are defined by admiralty law and include managing the cargo owner's trade, selling the merchandise in ports to which the vessel is sailing, and buying and receiving goods to be carried on the return voyage. [Wikipedia]

James Cunningham and Pathiah \ Bethiah Standiford were married on 1 Aug 1773 in St. Johns Parish, Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.7,10 Pathiah \ Bethiah Standiford, daughter of Israel Standiford and Cassandra Anderson, died on 12 Oct 1844 in Maryland.11

He was over 18 and taxed in the Gunpowder Lower Hundred in 1778. George was the head of household, with five white inhabitants, in the Bush River Lower Hundred in 1783.

George C. Cunningham and Sarah Carroll were married on 4 Aug 1779 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, United States.14 Sarah Carroll was born circa 1761 in Maryland. estimate

He was a presidential elector in 1789.

Daniel Cunningham and Ann Amos were married on 16 Oct 1797 in Harford Co., Maryland, United States.21 Ann Amos was born on 25 Jul 1777 in Joppa, Harford, Maryland, British America.22 Source gives May [5th] as birth month, but is from Quaker record making 5th month July. She died on 23 Jan 1872 at the age of 94 in Frederick, Frederick, Maryland, United States.23
 
Third Generation
 
6.  Charlotte Cunningham (James-2, Clotworthy/Clothworthy-1) was born on 25 Aug 1780 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.11 She died on 28 Jan 1844 at the age of 63 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.11 She was also known as Charlotte Etchberger.7

Charlotte Cunningham and William Etchberger were married on 25 Sep 1803 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.7 William Etchberger2427, son of William Etchberger and Mary Magdalena Schifleen, was born on 30 Aug 1779 in probably Berks Co., Pennsylvania.11 He died on 29 Sep 1830 at the age of 51 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.24 William Etchberger, husband of Charlotte Cunningham, was a boat builder in Fells Point. William may have been in business with his father and, for a time,  brother as the Baltimore Directories suggest.
1807: 4 Point St., Fells Point - boat builder [Baltimore City Directory, UK & US Directories 1680-1830, Ancestry.com]

1808: 4 Point St., Fells Point - boat builder [Baltimore City Directory, UK & US Directories 1680-1830, Ancestry.com]

1814-15: William, Sr. - 12 Thames St., Fells Point [Baltimore City Directory, MdHS MF 74. p. 79]

1814-15: William, Jr. - boat builder - Queen St., Fells Point [ibid.]

William's father served with Colonel Robert McGaw's 5th Pennsylvania Battalion during the Revolutionary War. He enlisted at Reading in 1776 and served under Captains John Spohn and Peter Decker. The senior William was captured at Fort Washington and exchanged in 1777. He also fought at Brandywine and Germantown. His service ended 1 February 1778.

William Etchberger, Jr. saw service during the War of 1812 as a private in Captain Sheppard's Company in the 6th Regiment of Maryland Militia. William was named an executor of the estate of Ralph Porter in 1822.

Baltimore Methodist Church records list Charlotte and Pathya Cunningham being excommunicated from the Fells Point Methodist Church for marrying "contrary to discipline" in 1803 [p. 125]. It is probable that Charlotte and William Etchberger were married in a local Dutch Reformed Church, resulting in her removal from the Methodist Church.
 
7.  Bathia Cunningham (James-2, Clotworthy/Clothworthy-1) was born about 1782 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.2829 She died between 1860 and 1870 at the age of 78 in York Co., Pennsylvania.29 She was also known as Bathia Prall.30 Bathia was also known as Bathia Porter.31

Bathia Cunningham and Cornelius Prall Jr were married on 2 Feb 1827 in Harford Co., Maryland.30 Cornelius Prall Jr5,29,3241, son of Cornelius Prall and Rebecca Garrison, was born on 19 Jun 1768 in East Amwell, Hunterdon Co., New Jersey.4243 Between 1790 and 1834 he was a Farmer in New Jersey, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. He died from gangrene following an injury in a railroad accident near Philadelphia., on 8 Jul 1834 at the age of 66 in Hopewell Center, York Co., Pennsylvania.44 Cornelius was buried after 8 Jul 1834 in Old Prospect Burying Ground, Fawn Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania.44 Cornelius was born in Amwell Township in 1768 to Cornelius and Rebecca [Garrison] Prall and raised on the family farm through the Revolutionary War. His mother died in the late 1770s. By 1784 the family - now including stepmother Sarah - had moved to Tewksbury Twp. and resided there until about 1791.
Cornelius Sr. acquired 175 acres in Kingwood Twp. in 1791 and relocated the family there. Cornelius Jr. met
  and married Elizabeth Rittenhouse, the daughter of Isaac and Susanna [Baker] Rittenhouse. Isaac was an innkeeper at Rosemont in Amwell Twp. and a direct descendant of Wilhelm Rittenhouse, the first papermaker in the colonies. Brothers Garrison and James moved to Kentucky and John moved to Somerset Co.
On 10 April 1793 Cornelius was deeded his father's 100 acres in Kingwood Twp., which he sold to John Bray in 1794. He also purchased 7 acres in Bethlehem Twp. from Henry Compton. Cornelius also paid $3 for a military exemption that year.

Tragedy struck the family when firstborn son, Garrison died on 16 September 1793, possibly a victim of the cholera epidemic that swept through the states that year. He was barely a month old. [Daughter Susanna may have also died that fall. There are conflicting death dates of 1793 and 1818 on her.]

Cornelius evidently inherited his father's ability to land in court, or the two were business partners from time to time. He was taken to court in 1795 by Gabriel Cooper. He and his father would be sued by Aaron and James Warford in 1799.

By 1799 Cornelius had relocated the family to Bernards Twp., Somerset Co., purchasing 100.5 acres [from Jonah and Nancy Smith on 29 June 1799] that was located east of the North Branch of the Raritan River.
  He used the land as collateral to borrow $300 to buy 121.5 acres from John J. and Mary Miller on 1May 1800. Cornelius would use one tract of land as collateral to purchase another several times. The family moved to Warren Twp. in 1806 and Bridgewater Twp. in 1808.
In 1808 Cornelius moved the family to East Windsor Twp., Middlesex Co. to a tract adjoining the Catterlin land where his father and 3rd wife resided on her late husband's farm. The land was a 113 acre tract purchased from Jonathan and Sarah Brearly, as well as 4.14 acres in South Amboy Twp.

Benjamin Alward took Cornelius to court over a $1000 debt in June 1809. On 7 June 1809 Isaac H. Williamson filed suit aganst Cornelius for a $68.64 debt. Cornelius did not appear or answer the charges.
  The court ordered the sheriff to sieze the Prall land, goods and chattles. The land was put up for sale and eventually purchased by Sarah Brearly, now widowed, for $6. Mrs. Brearly obtained a judgement against Cornelius in 1810 and he had to sell the land in South Amboy. [Nathan Davis bought the land for $61 on 15 Jan. 1811.]
By this time, Cornelius had left Middlesex Co. [probably to avoid the Williamson lawsuit] for PilesgroveTwp., Salem Co. He sold the two tracts of land in Bernards Twp. to Nicholas Perrine for $4000. While in Salem Co., Cornelius had a run-in with his brother, James. The altercation led to assault charges being filed against James.

The next move for the Prall family was to Chester Twp., Delaware Co., Pennsylvania. Cornelius was residing there in 1813 when named as an heir to his father's estate. He moved again to East Nottingham Twp., Chester Co., Pennsylvania sometime before 1820, when he appeared on the tax rolls.** During that year the family moved across the state line into Cecil Co., Maryland. Cornelius appeared on the Federal Census in both locations.

Another move landed the family in Harford Co., Maryland, near Bel Air. Cornelius's Uncle Edward had lived in the area from the 1770s until his death in 1803. While in Harford Co., the family acquired land in York Co., Pennsylvania. John R. purchased 83 acres and 108 perches in Hopewell Township from William Gemmill of Baltimore.

Elizabeth Rittenhouse Prall died* on 21 September or Decmber 1826. However, Cornelius did not remain a widower for long. On 11 February 1827 he married Bathiah Cunningham Porter, the widow of sea captain Ralph Porter.
  Before the family headed back to Pennsylvania, eldest son Isaac married Bathiah's niece, 16 year old Ann BethiaRhodes on 7 February 1828. It would appear that Bathia and Ann had moved to Harford County after the death of Bathia's husband a few years earlier.
Cornelius had settled in Hopewell Twp., York Co. by 1830 and son Isaac in Lower Chanceford Twp. Cornelius died as a result of a railroad accident on 8 July 1834 in Delaware Co., Pennsylvania near Philadelphia. He was buried at the Old Prospect Burying Ground, Fawn Grove, Fawn Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania. Cornelius' widow, Bathiah, moved in with Isaac and Ann following his death. Bathiah remained with her niece's family until her death sometime between 1860 and 1870. [She appeared with the family on the 1860 York Co. Census, but did not appear with any of the families on the 1870 census.]

The inventory of Cornelius Prall's estate was taken on 17 October 1834 and filed on 6 November 1834. Son John R. Prall was named administrator and bonded at $150. [Adm. Bond 2M,109] On 8 January 1850, William S. Hough [son of Rebecca Prall Hough] filed a petition objecting to the administration of John R. Prall.

On 6 May 1915, Isaac Prall of Pawnee City, Nebraska, son of Isaac R. and Ann B. [Rhodes] Prall, published "A Short History of my ancestry on my mother's side - also some on my father's side", which offered some interesting details on Cornelius and Elizabeth:

"Cornelius Prall of near Trenton, NJ was my grandfather. He was a man of leisure, as he inherited quite an estate and slaves. He married a Miss Rittenhouse of Philadelphia with considerable means so he never had to labor much. He had five sons and four daughters. His oldest son Isaac was my father, who with his father moved to Maryland and there became acquainted with my mother and married her in 1828. They spent their lives on farms, a few years in Maryland and most of the time in York Co., Pennsylvania where my grandfather located and all of his sons but one. They all owned their farms. My grandfather got hurt on a car on the Schoolkill River hill. The car was being hauled up the hill by rope and arm sweep powerand the rope broke and the car ran back and crashed into a car at the bottom of the hill, so he died some time after with gangrene.
Mother Aunt Bathia married Captain Porter and sailed with him on a nine months' trip in a sailing vessel. They were in England, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and I think in some other country. They had quite an adventurous trip and saw some strange sights. They saw the flying fish and monkeys and the beautiful birds of the tropics, also the great waves of the sea running high and the sun drawing water."


[There are definitely some errors in this account. There is no evidence of any large inheritance, Isaac may have confused the Catterlin estate for one of Cornelius Jr.'s farms. Elizabeth's grandfather establihed the family line in New Jersey, she did have relatives in the Philadelphia area, but she was a born and bred New Jersey girl.]
A letter dated 16 June 1941 from Marion C. Prall to Mrs. E. B. Williams offered the following information on the family:

"Prall, Cornelius P. Jr. Son of Cornelius. Born June 19, 1768, Died July 8, 1834, Hopewell Center, York County, Pa. Result of R.R. accident near Philadelphia. Married [1] to Elizabeth Rittenhouse, Jan. 2,1791 and [2] Mrs. Bathia Porter, Feb. 11, 1827. To his first wife were born eleven children: 1. Susannah B.; 2. Garrison; 3.Rebekah Garrison; 4. Eliza Rittenhouse; 5. Isaac Rittenhouse; 6. Squire; 7. Lucretia P.; 8. John Rittenhouse; 9. Asher Garrison; 10. Ellis Free; 11. Amy R., resident Mt. Airy, New Jersey, Hunterdon County.This family was sober, industrious, and most of them prosperous.
Cornelius P. Jr. and wife and family removed from Pralltown [?] to State of Delaware and thence to Cecil County, Maryland, thenceto Hartford County, Maryland, near Bel Air, thence to Hopewell Center, York County, Pennsylvania. He was a large man, very fleshy, with a head longer than narrow [his hat was made to order], of jovial disposition, ever ready to aid the deserving and undeserving. He is buried in the Old Prospect Burying Ground, Fawn Township, York County, Pennsylvania.

Mrs. Bathia Porter, his second wife, was first wife of a sea captain, and as the consequence of many sea voyages and travel was a very interesting conversationalist."

*Elizabeth Rittenhouse's death date was taken from The Prall Family [p. 50]. The date is mistakenly given for Bathiah Prall. The birthdate given matches Elizabeth's and would be a logical deathdate considering the 1827 marriage for Cornelius. Marjorie Snyder's descendency chart for Cornelius Prall, Jr.'s family gives Elizabeth's date of death as 21 December 1826.

Bathia Cunningham and Captain Ralph Porter were married on 11 Oct 1803 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.31 Captain Ralph Porter5,25,27,45 died before 24 Dec 1822 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.46 Ralph Porter was a sea captain based out of Baltimore's Fells Point waterfront neighborhood. He and Bathia are found in the following city directory entries:
1810: Porter, Capt. Ralph - 30 W. Fleet St., Fells Point [Baltimore City Directory - Maryland Historical Soc. MF 72, p. 146]

1819: Porter, Ralph - Capt. - 18 Queen St., Fells Point [Baltimore City Directory - MdHS MF 77, POS-POW]

1822-23: Porter, Ralph - sea capt. - 18 Queen St., Fells Point [Baltimore City Directory - MdHS MF 78, p. 222]

1824: Porter, Bathia - widow - 26 Vulcan Aley [Baltimore City Directory - MdHS MF 79, p. 245]

Ralph Porter wrote his will on 12 June 1817 and it was proved 27 December 1822:

Ralph Porter's last will and testament:
  "I Ralph Porter of the city of Baltimore and State of Maryland being sick and weak of body, but sound disposing mind, memory, and understanding do this twelfth day of June Eighteen hundred & seventeen make publish and declare this present my last Will and Testament in manner following, I give and bequeath to my Sister Frances Porter if She should arrive in the United States of America in twelve months from the date here of One hundred Dollars. And all the rest and residue of my Estate Real, Personal and mixed, I give and bequeath to my Wife Bathea Porter, and hereby appoint my said wife Bathea Porter my Executrix of this my last Will and Testament hereby revoking all former wills. In Witness whereof I Ralph Porter have here unto set my hand and Seal the day and year first above written."  Ralph Porter    Witnesses: Matthew Bennett ad Robert Armstrong
Settlement of Ralph Porter's estate: Maryland SS: Know all men by those presents that we Bathia Porter, Daniel James and William Etchberger, all of Baltimore County are held and firmly bound unto the State of Maryland in the full and just sum of five thousand Dollars to be paid to the said State of Maryland to which payment will and truly be made and done and binding ourselves and every of us our and every of our heirs, Executors and Administrators in the whole and for the whole jointly and severaly firmly by these present with our seals dated this 27th day of December in the year of our Lord Eighteen-hundred and Twenty-two. The condition of the above obligation is such that if the above bound Bathia Porter shall well and truthfully perform the office of Executrix of the last will and Testament of Ralph Porter, late of Baltimore County deceased .....

Bathia Porter made her mark, while Bennett and brother-in-law Etchberger signed the document.

Bathia [Pathya] Cunningham was "excommunicated for marrying contrary to discipline" along with her sister Charlotte in 1803. Both were raised Methodist, but married outside the Church. Bathiah and Ralph Porter were married in the First Presbyterian Church of Baltimore.

The Porters had taken on the responsibility of caring for Bathia's niece, Ann Bathia Rhodes after the death of the girl's parents. Following Captain Porter's death, Bathia and Ann left Fell's Point for Harford Co., Maryland. There Bathia married Cornelius Prall, Jr. in 1827 and Ann married Cornelius's son Isaac the following year.
 
8.  Harriet Cunningham (James-2, Clotworthy/Clothworthy-1) was born before 1790 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland. She died about 1818 at the age of 28 in Fells Point, Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.47 [last listing in city directory] She was also known as Harriet Rhodes.7

Harriet Cunningham and Captain Zachariah Rhodes were married on 31 Jul 1810 in First Methodist Episcopal Church, Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.7 Captain Zachariah Rhodes5,7,25,28,38,45,4753, son of Holden Rhodes and Susannah Wall, was born on 20 May 1784 in Warwick, Kent Co., Rhode Island.5456 He died at sea enroute to Puerto Rico from Baltimore about 14 Aug 1815 at the age of 31.5,5557 The mystery of the family connection has centered around this Zachariah Rhodes. Beyond his birth date, nothing has turned up in Rhode Island records. A search of the LDS IGI turned up a Zachariah Rhodes born to Holden and Susannah [Wall] Rhodes in 1784 who died at sea in 1815. This would fit the story of Captain Zachariah Rhodes of Baltimore. Family tradition [the account of Isaac Prall in 1915] holds that Zachariah went down aboard his ship, the Polix and Castor, in the Chesapeake Bay. The submitter of the record was contacted and sent an Ahnentafel Chart for his Rhodes family. This record had Holden Rhodes as the son of Holden Rhodes rather than Charles Rhodes as my other sources have indicated. I was referred to the submitter's daughter, who did not reply to my letter.  It is possible that this is the same Zachariah Rhodes who turns up in 1810 Baltimore as the husband of Harriet Cunningham. This Zachariah Rhodes was a sea captain. It would be logical for the son of Holden Rhodes, who served at sea during the Revolutionary War and continued life as a seaman [issued a seaman's protection certificate in 1796]  to go into that line of work.
"The Life and Times of Samuel Gorton" by Adelos Gorton [1907] is the source for the 1815 death of Zachariah. On p. 268-269, the book shows that both Zachariah and Perry Rhodes were "lost at sea 1815." In addition, "The Descendants of Roger Williams" compiled by Dorothy H. White [p. 157] notes that both Zachariah and Perry Rhodes were lost at sea on a voyage from Baltimore to Puerto Rico in 1815. In his work "The Holden Family in America", Frederick A. Holden cites Gorton [p. 268-269] in saying that Captain Rhodes sailed from Baltimore aboard the schooner 'Hannah' on 14 August 1815, with brother Perry Rhodes as mate, and was "never again heard from." [Vol. VII, p. 653] Holden also says that Captain Rhodes married Harriet Shepperd in Baltimore [no date given]. [Vol. I, p. 237, Vol. VII, p. 653] Perhaps young Isaac Prall confused the names of ships captained by his grandfather, and 'Polix and Castor' stayed in his memory while 'Hannah' did not. His aunt/step-mother seemed to have regaled the children with seafaring adventures of both Zachariah and her first husband, Ralph Porter.

Based on the above mentioned information, it is highly probable that the lineage of Captain Zachariah Rhodes does indeed extend back to the immigrant Zachariah Rhodes who settled at Rehoboth, Massachusetts and later Rhode Island.

The following account of Zachariah Rhodes is based on the available sources.

Zachariah Rhodes, born in 1784, was the son of Holden and Susannah [Wall] Rhodes. He followed the profession of his father, that of a mariner. His brothers Holden, Isaac, and Perry also became seamen and lost their lives in that endeavor.
Zachariah left Rhode Island for Baltimore sometime before 1810. That year he married Harriet Cunningham* at the Methodist Church at East City Station. A daughter, Ann Bethiah, was born to the couple in 1812. Harriet's five sisters had all married men connected to the seafaring trade. All of the families were based out of the Fells Point area [or nearby] on Baltimore's Inner Harbor. John Brown [m. Betsy Ann Cunningham] was listed as a mariner and ship carpenter; William Carman [Ann Cunningham] was listed as a pilot; William Etchberger [Charlotte Cunningham] was listed as a boat builder; Ralph Porter [Bathiah Cunningham] was listed as a sea captain; and Zachariah Rhodes [Harriet Cunningham] was listed as a sea captain. The other sister, name unknown, married a man named Hunt. Harriet also had a brother, James, who was a sea captain.

Captain Rhodes is listed in the 1814-15 [22 Bond St., Fells Point] and 1816 [24 Queen St., Fells Point] Baltimore Directories. It is likely that the 1816 directory went to press before Zachariah's death.

According to grandson Isaac Prall, Rhodes captained a ship named "Polix and Castor." Holden gives the ship as the schooner
  'Hannah.' Younger brother Perry had joined Zachariah in Baltimore. Zachariah was captain of the 'Hannah' and Perry was the mate when she left Baltimore for Puerto Rico on 14 August 1815. That was the last time the Rhodes brothers were seen alive. Harriet was listed in the 1818 directory at 24 Queen St.
Harriet must have died shortly thereafter. Ann was raised by Bathiah and Ralph Porter. All three were named as heirs in John Brown's 1819 will. John was the son of John Brown and Betsy Ann Cunningham. Ralph Porter died in 1822. Bathiah and her niece remained in Fells Point until at least 1824. They had removed to Harford County by 1827, where Bathiah married Cornelius Prall, Jr. and Ann married Isaac R. Prall in 1828.
___________________________________________________________________
*No Zachariah Rhodes - Harriet Shepperd marriage has been located in the Baltimore records between 1784 and 1815.
 
Zachariah Rhodes and Harriet Cunningham had the following child:
 
           12              i.   Ann Bethia Rhodes, born 1812, Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland; married Isaac Rittenhouse Prall, 7 Feb 1828, Harford Co., Maryland; died 1865, York Co., Pennsylvania.
 
9.  Ann Cunningham (James-2, Clotworthy/Clothworthy-1) was born before 1790 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland. She died in 1822 at the age of 32 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland. She was also known as Ann Carman.7

Ann Cunningham and William Carman were married on 17 Oct 1799 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.7 William Carman58 was born (date unknown). A William Carman resided at various addresses on High Street in Old Town, Baltimore from 1796 - 1817. He was a carpenter, lumber inspector and measurer, lumber merchant, and slate manufacturer. His business was located at O'Donnel's Wharf and later at M'Elderry's Wharf. [Baltimore City Directories 1796-1817, UK & US Directories 1680-1830, Ancestry.com]
There are also entries for a William Carman in 1810 who was a pilot residing at 46 Happy Alley in Fells Point [Baltimore Directory, MdHS MF 72, p. 44] and in 1817 for a mariner residing on Smith Street in Fells Point [Baltimore City Directory, MdHS MF 72, p. 30.] This seems to be a better match for Ann Cunningham's husband.

The Methodist Church records of Baltimore show three entries for Ann Carman. She moved away in 1814 [p. 150], removed from the city in 1820 [p. 157], and died in 1822 [p. 135].
 
10.  Betsy Ann Cunningham (James-2, Clotworthy/Clothworthy-1) was born before 1790 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland. She was also known as Betsy Ann Brown.7 She was also known as Betsy Ann Buckingham.7

Betsy Ann Cunningham and John Brown were married on 10 Dec 1796 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.7 John Brown5,50 was born (date unknown). John Brown was a resident of the Fells Point district. He and Betsy Ann Cunningham apparently had at least one son, also named John. The Baltinore Directories show several enteries between 1796 and 1819 that could be John Brown and later his son.
1796: Between Bond and High Streets, Fells Point - mariner [Baltimore City Directory, UK & US Directories 1680-1830, Ancestry.com]

There is also a John Brown who worked as a ship carpenter between 1812 and 1818 in Fells Point. [Baltimore City Directories, MdHS MF 73, 74, 75, 76]

On 28 April, 1819, John Brown of Baltimore, Maryland wrote his last will and testament naming his Uncle Ralph Porter and Aunt Bathia Porter heirs to his estate. In the event of their deaths, his cousin, Ann Bathia Rhodes, was to inherit the estate. John's will was proven
  13 September 1825. He was about to embark on a sea voyage.
This would be the son of John and Betsy. John's will was vital in establishing the link between the Rhodes and Cunningham families.
 
John Brown and Betsy Ann Cunningham had the following child:
 
                              i.   John Brown Jr. died between 1819 and 1825 in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland.50
