DOB from LDS records

Regarding her date of death and burial: According to Williamson County historian, Virginia Bowman, Rachel Donelson Eastin was at home of her brother Lemuel Donelson when she died and was buried in the Donelson family cemetery there. Her date of death and place of burial is confirmed by a letter of Andrew Jackson to John Coffee, dated November 20, 1822, indicating that Rachael had died at Lemuel's home before dawn and prior to his arrival on the morning of the 20th and that she was buried there at his suggestion, next to a child of hers that had been buried there previously. See: The Papers of Andrew Jackson, Microfilm Supplement, Reel 9, No. 311.
