|Death: ||Nov. 6, 1880|
Rachel was born about Oct 1807 in Kingston, Jamaica and came to the USA in Feb 1836, arriving in New York with her four young daughters Eliza, Madeleine, Georgena and Matilda. Her youngest daughter, Josephine was born in Aug of that same year.
Her husband's name was Jacob Adolphus, and it is unclear whether or not he died in Jamaica before she immigrated, as he is mentioned in the 1838 obituary of her daughters Madeleine and Matilda, who both died of Scarlet Fever within a week of each other in New York. The obituary says that they are "the daughters of Jacob Adolphus, Esq. Kingston, Jamaica".
In later years, she ventured South, living first with her daughter Georgena's family in New Orleans, LA and later with her daughter Josephine's family in Woodville, MS.
Although there is a headstone for her in the cemetery in Vicksburg, MS it appears that her remains were returned to Jamaica for final interment.
