Samuel Rhodes

(1813-1883). One of the members of the publishing committee of the Advent Review and designer of the first Seventh-day Adventist prophetic chart (1850). Rhodes had been a successful Millerite evangelist, but after the Disappointment he became discouraged and retired for three years to a wilderness area of New York. In 1849, however, he was won to the Sabbatarian faith by Hiram Edson and returned to preaching. He was one of the pioneer Seventh-day Adventist evangelists in Indiana and Illinois.
