Rachel was a great-great-great-grandmother.
Family lore is that she was of native ancestry and had the name of "Morning Dawn".
She married George R. Buckallew Jr. (sometimes spelled Buckaloo) in 1816 and by the 1860's was in Putnam county. She died in Unionville Oct. 1879 & is burried in Wayland.
I can find her listed in official records (marriage registration, and Federal Census records of 1840 & 1850, etc.) but I have been unsuccessful finding any official documents indicating her heritage.
Anyone with any suggestions?
