  • Notes 
    • Several sites say Rachel was born in Wilkes Co., North Carolina. According to Jonathan's pension application, the family had left NC by then and was living in Greenbrier Co., Virginia (now West Virginia) between 1792 and 1808.
      Jonathan said he removed "to Greenbrier County VA in middle of January 1792 until he removed in 1808 to Harrison County, Virginia."
