Notes for Rachel IRWIN

She was named in her father's will in 1799 only as Rachel without mention of a husband.

Rachel was named co-executor in John's will and she survived him "by several years" according to one history. Estate receipts from the children before 1824 say Robert and Rachel but those in 1824 say Robert, "surviving executor of the estate of John and Rachel Lisle, decest."

She was said to have lived her later years with daughter, Rachel Sackett.

Robert was also executor of his mother's estate.
