Was sent this today so more questions so was this her maiden name or was she married before William.? Rachel Clifton West Virginia Marriages, 1780-1970 Name: William Luiger which is Linger Event Type: Marriage Event Type: Marriage Marriage Date: 1826 Marriage Place: Nicholas, West Virginia, United States Spouse's Name: Rachel Clifton Source Reference: County Records Record Number: 1684
Who was Rachel Bickel parents???? Personal Note to self Will you be able to break this WALL??? Answer good question. Many have listed Rachel Bickel (Bickle) as being born around 1805 in Lewis, Virginia (now Lewis County, West Virginia). Her parents have been listed as George Bickel and Nancy Glassford without source documentation. The problem is that these parents also have birth dates around 1805 making it impossible for them to have Rachel as a child. Part of the confusion could be that George & Margaret did have a daughter named Rachel Bickel but she was born in 1844 and married a William Mays.
Unfortunately, the parent's information has been spread throughout Ancestry.com, Geni.com, etc trees, again without sources and investigation.
An alternative set of parents have been suggested, again without sources: Jacob Bickel (1770-1850) married to a Margaret (abt 1770- ).Jacob and Margaret Meese were married on 4/12/1848, the only child listed I could fine is Rachel, her grandparents on the Bickel side were Johann Jacob Bickel 1743 - 1805. and Margaret Cogar 1743 - 1805.
==Notes== I keep coming back to Jacob and Margaret as Rachel parents. but can not find source. just what other people from other sites are sending me.
At this time, parents can not be confirmed. Rachel Linger formerly Bickel Born about 1805 [uncertain] in Lewis, Virginia, United State Married 27 Apr 1826 in Nicholas, Virginia, United States
