    Rachel's husband William died before the 1850 census.  No death recordhas been found.  She was living with her widowed mother and enumeratedenumerated under her maiden name.

    Again in 1860, she and her mother were enumerated in the samehousehold   Her name was spelled Rachael by the 1860 enumerator. Andthis time she was reported under her married (widow) name.

    In 1861, Rachel's mother passed away.  In the 1870 census, there was aJohn Wilson in her household.  The census page is very faded and it ishard tomake out manby detrails.  The name is even unclear, but istranscribed by Acnestry as John.  They have the age as 4, but it lookslike it could be 14 or 24.  No occupatoin is reported.  Rachel had ason named John Wilson, but he would have been born before 1850, soshould have been over 20 in 1870.  And none of her children were inher household in 1850 or 1860.  This John Wilson is the only otherperson in Rachel's household.
