Rachel was a daughter of Jeptha West. She grew up in White County, Tennessee, but in her mid teens the Wests went west to Illinois. Here she married James Downing in 1832. When the Wests moved again to Polk County, Missouri, the Downings did so as well. By 1850 Rachel and James moved again, to western Arkansas. James appears to have died there and Rachel moved back to Missouri to be near family. She was living in Aurora Springs when she was burned in some mishap that resulted in her death.
