Note 1

Her information comes from the Willam Masters Will dated 1814, the Mason County KY, land sale in 1805 when she gives release of her dower, and Solomon's new marriage in 1813. Gary Sharp (of Indianapolis IN.) writes - "I will always belive the small broken headstone (next to Solomon) in Lee's Creek Cemetery is that of Rachel, but there is no way to prove it."

he goes on - "I have the births of these children to be Mason County, KY because Solomon is there from 1791 until at least 1809."[Sharp.FTW]
