Rachel (Rachael) Andrews was apparently born about 1695, perhaps in Ipswich in the Province of Massachusetts Bay. Her parents were William Andrews and Margaret Woodward Andrews. This birth date is calculated from the record of her death (indicating that she was about 82 years old in August of 1777).

Rachel and Zachariah Story recorded their intention to marry on July 4, 1714 in Ipswich. [1] They apparently married elsewhere.

Rachel and Zachariah registered the births of ten children in Ipswich.


Rachel (Andrews) Story was a widow when she died on 6 Aug 1777, at Ipswich, at approximately 82 years of age.[2]
