I am looking for Rachel's true mother. I think she is one of the daughters of Stephen Halsey (1752) and Charity Strong. The book about Thomas Halsey's descendants states that Stephen married Charity as a second wife and had three daughters but no sons, but doesn't list their names. I have found Stephen's will that says one of his daughter's names was Mary Ann Halsey, but no mention of the other two except at the end it says that he gives one dollar to Rachel Farmer (that is who she would have been known as in 1857). If anyone knows anything, please put me out of my misery! Thanks!
