      Ron, thanks for your last e-mail. In answer to your question,yes, it appears that Rachael was married twice - first to Joseph Allen. They were married 5-10-1847 in Jefferson County, Kentucky. She and Joseph are listed in the 1850 census , along with a son named Salonas. Unknown what became of Joseph Allen . Rachael re-married to Peter Yates in Meade County Ky in 1855. He died in 1897 in Atchers, Hardin County, Ky. She died 18 June 1911 in Hardin County, Ky. I looked at her death certificate and the informant was her son Horace. On the certificate , her mother Nancy's maiden name is illegible and it appears that someone who submitted the info on rootsweb made an educated guess as to the spelling and believed it to be "Chepiuon". It is actually Chipman. Her father is listed as Dock Alexander (my g-g-g-grandfather)- he also went by Doctor Alexander and that is apparently his name and not his vocation. Also from the death certificate, Horace provided Rachaels birthplace as Greenup County Kentucky, which also appears as her place of birth on RootsWeb but I believe this to be in error, since census and county records show that the Alexanders were in Grant, not Greenup County Ky at the time of Rachael's birth.
