Hi Ann, Thanks for getting back to me on this. It's exciting to think that maybe my Jessie is connected to someone else. I don't have any birth date information for Jessie, and instead of meaning Rachel, I think you might have meant Elizabeth her mother. In that case, no, I don't have any information on her. If I should find something while going through my papers, I'll let you know. I would appreciate anything that you might be willing to share.
Hi Ann, Thanks for contacting me about your McGuire line (husband's). I really don't have much information on my McGuire line. My 3rd great-grandmother is Rachel McGuire who was born in 1822 in Ripley Co., IN. She married Robert Hooker on Oct. 13, 1838 in Ripley Co., IN. Rachel is the daughter of Jesse McGuire and Elizabeth Butler. Rachel died in September 1879 in Saunders Co., NE.
