The WikiTree profile for Amy Duke has the most info I've seen for her:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Duke-2440

Given the loss of most of the early Hanover Co., VA public records, it'll take uncovering loose records from other sources to expand on what's in the Amy DUke WikiTree profile.

Thanks for looking/responding Joe. I’m at a standstill...
Belatedly I did a search within a copy of Evelyn Duke Brandenbergers 1979 book 'The Duke Family, Vol. 2' and found this reference from From:

St. Paul's Parish Vestry Book February 28, 1709/10 .- Ordered that Henry Mills, Joseph Poors (Peers), Jas Brown, Henry Farmur, Col. Duke's Quarter, Roger Smith, Charles Rhodes, Wm Howlett, Etc. to assist John Glenn to clear the road ( P. 401.

This shows land owned by Col. Henry Duke was in close proximity to land owned by Charles Rhodes.  The WikiTree profile for your Charles Rhodes suggest he was born in 1725, but the record is from 1709.  Was his father really John Rhodes, or was there another Charles Rodes between John Rodes and Charles Rodes b. 1725?

Could be for John’s father Charles:
