Rachel married John Norman, son of Samuel Norman and Annie Heywood, on 4 Jul 1854 in Richland County, Ohio, USA.1 (John Norman was born on 26 Jun 1834 in Coshocton, Coshocton County, Ohio, USA, died on 16 Oct 1906 in Hudson, Salem Township, Steuben County, Indiana, USA 5 and was buried in Circle Cemetery, Hudson, Steuben County, Indiana, USA.)


bullet  Marriage Notes:

Maybe on July, 1854 near Richland, Ohio. There was a marriage notice in THE OHIO LIBERAL, 13 August 1884, Vol. 12, No. 18.

If Rachel's birth date is correct, then she would have been 1 years old when she married. Obviously this cannot be correct.
