Biography

Rachel Brown was born about 1812 in Columbiana County, Ohio, United States. Her parents are Samuel Brown and Susanah (nee?) Brown.[1][2]

On August 7, 1820 she was living with her parents and seven of her siblings in Franklin Township, Columbiana County, Ohio.[2]

In June 1830 she was living with her parents and three of her siblings in Franklin Township, Columbiana County, Ohio.[3]

On June 20, 1833 she married Robert Wallace in Columbiana County, Ohio.[4] Their children are

  1. Robert Wallace
  2. Samuel Wallace
  3. Jemima Wallace
  4. Anna Wallace
  5. Jonas Wallace
  6. Armentha Wallace
  7. James Wallace
  8. Sarah Wallace
  9. William Wallace
  10. Jackson Wallace
  11. Henry Wallace

At the time of her father's death, in June 1840 in Columbiana County, Ohio, she inherited $33 from him, which was paid before his death.[1]

On the 1840 census of Fox, Carroll County, Ohio, she was living with her husband, probably also with 4 sons, 2 daughters, and a farm hand.[5]

On October 3, 1850 she was living with her husband and their ten children in Fox, Pickaway County, Ohio, United States.[6]

Rachel died in Missouri some time after her son, Henry, was born (~1851) and before her son, Robert, was the head of the household as shown on the 1860 census (18 Jun 1860).[7]

Notes

The 1820 census indicates that Rachel was born about 1812, not 1810. Birth year 1812 is the most probable, because her brother Jonathan Brown was born in 1810. [added by S. Primbsch 5/2019]

Brown-61870 and Brown-49978 appear to represent the same person because: Rachel Brown married Robert Wallace. They moved to MO and the children match the children in our Wallace Family History compiled by Norma Wallace through years of genealogy research.
