Rachel is believed to have been born in Ireland about 1831-1832. She married Thomas H Gwynn in Philadelphia about 1850. They had nine children, the oldest being David Gwynn (1853-1941). She and Thomas spent most of their married lives living on Front Street in Philadelphia.

She died of pneumonia at home. Her will, Will #1167 for the year 1899 in Philadelphia, was under the name Gwyen (Gwynn). In it, she bequeathed $150.00 to her sister, Eleanor Van Dyke. That may or may not be a lead to her maiden name. She is buried with Thomas and several other family members including Thomas's parents, David and Margaret (maiden name not known) Gwynn.
