Looking for information about Rachel Ann Baltzell who was b. abt. 1849 in either Shelby Co. or Darke Co., OH. Her father was Peter Baltzell who d. 1850 in Shelby Co., OH and mother was Malinda Sharp. Rachel Ann, her sister Eliza Jane, and mother Malinda were living with Lydia Baltzell (Peter's widowed mother) on the 1850 Shelby Co., OH census. When the grandmother (Lydia) moved to Champaign Co., IL with her remaining children in abt. 1852, she took Rachel Ann and Eliza Jane with her -- but not the mother Malinda. Eliza Jane Baltzell married in Champaign Co. However, I don't know what happened to Rachel Ann Baltzell. She lived for a time with Jacob Alexander Baltzell (one of Lydia's sons) in Champaign Co., IL until he moved to Barton Co., MO. I don't know whether Rachel Ann moved with the family to MO or stayed in IL or what. I haven't found any marriage records for her. Any clues would be most welcomed.
