If you go to message # 58 on the Slayton Genforum , you'll find some information about Rachel.
My grgrgrgrandmother was Lena(h) Slayden/ Slayton, b. 1809, and sister to your Mildred.Lena married Drury Mayes in 1830 in Pittsylvania Co, VA.Their daughter, Letha married Josiah Morefield in 1853 in Patrick Co, VA.About 1869 Letha & Josiah moved to Hawkins Co., TN.From there, my line is Josiah (Jr.) Morefield, Roy Markis Mo(o)refield, Joseph William Moorefield, me.
I am going to attend a Morefield research meeting in early July in Pittsylvania Co.Some of the Morefield researchers are speculating that the Murfieldand Morefield families were two branches of the same family.
It's interesting that your Shirley married a Waller, because Lena and Shirley's grgrandmother was Ann Waller 1737-1783 who married Daniel Slayden.You probably know that we are doubly descended from the Slaydens:Lena & Shirley's parents were Thomas Slayden m. Rachel Slayden.Thomas was the grgrandson of Arthur Slayden and Rachel Murfield and Rachel Slayden was their granddaughter.
