She was described as "an Indian girl" by James D Moreland, in a 12 Mar 1969 letter to Shirley Spetman [then Lundy], in Spetman, Barnett and Spetman Genealogy and Allied Lines, privately publihsed, 1980, page 136. The letter explains that there were two James Moreland, Black Jim and Red Jim. "Uncle Enoch [Moreland] moved to Indiana, I think, before Red Jim married and I think you are right, Red Jim married an Indian girl. Father's brother Black Jim went to Indiana also." Page 128 in the same book is a copy of James F Moreland's Civil War pension, which states his hair was "light red."
James D Moreland, author of the letter, who was born in 1891 and died in 1976, was a grandson of Elijah Moreland; his uncle "Black Jim" was born in 1841 and 1921. James Francis Moreland, who married Rhoda Parker, was a son of Elijah's brother Enoch Moreland; "Red Jim" was born in 1843 and died 1916.
Shirley Spetman's book has the following documentation: Jul 11 1867, Vigo Co IN: marriage license.

Shirley Spetman states Rhoda died 1888, but she is in the 1910 census with husband James.
The name Rhoda appears frequently in the Moreland family. James's grandmother was Rhoda Willoughby Moreland, possibly an aunt of our Elizabeth Willoughby's.
