Rachel's father Jonathan Gibson 1st died in 1729 and she inherited 3 servants. Her mother Elizabeth (Thornton) Conway Gibson died in 1733 and Rachel was also named in her mother's will. Her siblings were part of a western migration to present Orange Co., Virginia and Rachel perhaps accompanied her sister Alice and Alice's husband John Catlett to Orange ca. 1737.
Rachel married George Taylor 1st in 1738 and bore him 11 sons. Their son George 2nd died in 1761 of smallpox which also claimed Sarah's life. She is said to be buried in a family plot at "Greenfield" the plantation of George's brother Erasmus Taylor near Orange C.H., (Orange County) Virginia.
