The Descendants of Matthew "The Rebel" Rhea of Scotland and Ireland - Edward Foley. Many of the Rhea families in America are descended from Matthew Rhea of the Campbell Clan of Scotland. His descendants traveled to America at various times throughout the early and mid eighteenth century. His family settled in Virginia and East Tennessee and his descendants have now spread to all corners of the country. This text identifies over 4,100 direct descendants and their nearly 2,100 spouses through twelve generations. It builds on the great Rhea family histories of the early part of the twentieth century, adding new descendants, biographies, dates and descriptions of places significant to the family's history. The text is further enhanced by an extensive bibliography and an index of full names. The author, who married into the Rhea clan, is a well traveled businessman, an amateur historian and a member of genealogical societies in South Carolina and Tennessee.
