Great-grand daughter of Driller and eventually Leadman James Richard Rhodes (1902-1971) at Mare Island from at least 1939-1957.

The son of a farmer turned coal miner from Illinois, James decided he would want better for his children and relocated to Solano, Vallejo, CA. His son, Richard Dean Rhodes (1930-2001), would also join the Navy and follow in his footsteps as a sheet metal specialist working as a Naval Engineer in Bremerton, WA.

2 generation of submarine builders.

I hope to visit one day and learn more about Mare Island. All feel free to forward recommendations for organizations or books that could help me appreciate the career and contributions of Great Grandpa James Rhodes.
