Matrilineal Monday: Rachel Church (Mack) Martin
I've seen several mentions of the Mack family in genealogy writings recently and thought I'd share a little about my branch of that family. Rachel Church Mack was named for her grandmother, Rachel (Church) Mack. Daughter of Hezekiah Mack and Anne Spencer, she was born in East Haddam in March 1799. She married Samuel Martin in March 1818. She died in 1855 and was buried in Mount Parnassus Cemetery.The Martins, like many East Haddam families, were farmers and didn't leave a large paper trail. As a result, I know little else about Rachel.
