"Rachel Hoskins nee Emry was born in Randolph County, Ind, Jan 28, 1823 and died near Hardman, Oregon, March 24, 1901, aged 78 years, 1 month and 24 days. She was married to Dillon Hoskins Aug 14, 1839, in Henry Co., Iowa. They crossed the plains with ox teams in 1852 and settled in Linn Co., Oregon, and moved to Morrow Co., Oregon in 1876. She was the mother of sixteen children of whom eleven are living, four dying in infancy, and her oldest son James dying in 1892. Her living decendents include eleven children, fifty-four grand-children and forty great grand-children. The total number of her decendants are one hundred and thirty-two of who one hundred and five are living.
She had a birthright in the Quaker Church, joined the M.E. Church but was Radical U.B. in belief. Her influence was strongly against secrecy and intemperance. She led a quiet, unassuming life, but many will remember her testimony to the saving power of Jesus. Her death was triumphant, she was calling the names of loved ones as she neared the heavenly shore. Among her descendants are three U.B. Ministers, a son, daughter and grandson."
