If you look at the original handwritten document, Rachell Buck-14 is born between Hannah and Susana and Susanna is clearly born in 1664. This probably means Rachell's mother is Elizabeth Holbrook-4.

Rachell's birthday of 1661 is also more in line with the birthday of her first husband John Dwelley in 1659.

Buck-4909 and Buck-14 appear to represent the same person because: same first name, maiden name, spouse, same birth year, same daughter (Thankfully).

Rachel is attached to both father (Richard Dwelley) and son (John Dwelley). She married son John. Removing his father Richard as spouse.
Richard Dwelley was her father in law. His wife was Dinah, last name unknown. How do you disconect him from this relationship? Bob
