The 1861 census records show Rhoda married to Isaiah Grocott they married at St John's in Burslem in 1858 and are living at 149 Hall Street in Burslem and have two children Joseph and Adah aged 3.
David is not found on the 1871 Census
records he would have been 84 years old so has presumably died.
Anne was a lot younger than David and would have been only 64, but so far I have not been able to find her on the 1871 Census records, maybe she has died as well.
