Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 17, 1796
Westmoreland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 16, 1858
Greene County
Ohio, USA

Rachel Jackson, born in Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, February 17th, 1796; married February 17th 1815 (being nineteen years old,) to Judge Samuel Kyle, a farmer near Cedarville, Ohio. He was thirty years Associate Judge of the Court of Greene county, Ohio, and for many years County Surveyor. He was a ruling elder in the Associate Reformed, now United Presbyterian congregation of Cedarville. He was first married to Ruth Mitchell , by whom he had six children. After his first wife’s death and the year after Robert Jackson and family moved to Greene county, he married their daughter Rachel Jackson.

He died February 25th 1857 at his home, one mile south of Cedarville. Their children were fifteen in number and all remarkably tall. The shortest of the sons that grew to maturity was six feet, and the tallest was six feet seven inches. Some say “Judge Kyle had seventy-five sons..That is measuring posterity by feet. But we can truthfully say Judge Kyle and wife trained their children so thoroughly in the doctrines of the Bible and the Gospel, that all became useful citizens and active members of the church. Judge and Rachel Jackson Kyle should have a monument erected not heir graves by the county, for the excellent training of so many of her useful citizens.. “Genealogy of the Jackson family” by Rev. Hugh Parks Jackson

Children: Margaret, Katherine, Elizabeth, Joseph, David M., Samuel, Jane, Robert J., Ruth A., James, William, Thomas, John, Rachel J., Henry, Joshua, Eleanor, Roland, Martha, Hugh and Mary
