Levi Rhodes in 1850 and is he really the Dad?

This is the 1850 federal census entry for Levi Rhodes in Scotland County, Missouri. Levi's War of 1812 pension record was discussed in an earlier issue of Casefile Clues. I think that this William is the same William Rhodes/Rhodus that is my wife's ancestor, although the age is slightly off.

Other family members are not convinced, so I'm going back and looking again at my earlier research.

We'll look at the reviewed material in a later issue of Casefile Clues, but it will concentrate on discussing the consistency of information between census records, where these other individuals in the 1850 enumeration end up, and why the location of where Levi was probably born and raised makes more of a difference that might appear on the surface.
