    Rachel was the second wife and widow of prominent North Texas pioneer Mabel Gilbert.

    Rachel, a twenty-eight-year old widow with one child, married Gilbert--who was thirty-one years her senior--in Grayson County on Dec. 18, 1855 who had eleven children from his first wife. After their marriage they moved to what would become Wichita County. There, Rachel gave birth to the first Angelo baby born in Wichita County.

    When Mabel died of pneumonia in early 1870, Rachel moved her family to a farm south of Gainesville. A short time later, she gave birth to Mabel's twenty-first child, a girl named Mabel.

    In her later years, Rachel Gilbert was know as "Grandma Gilbert."
