I tried to find infrmation on Rachel through the McAllesters, they have nothing on a Rachel who maried a Cash man. I believe that John Cash & Rachel McAllester may be correct but simly cannot find positive proof.
My information came through the Nickell familly. Rachel Kash, b. 1794 was the oldest dau. of James Kash & Phoebe Lacy. She marr. Joseph Nickell and the dates I have are in his Bible which I copied in the early 1960s. Rachel did not die until 1853 and her Kash grandparents lived until the 1850s so she should have had accurate knowledge of her grandparents. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that none of the early Kash/Cash men in Morgan & Wolfe Cos. used the given name JOHN for a son. John was a rather commmon given name but they used James, Caleb, William etc. If it were possible to locate an old Bible which would have the birthdate for Caleb , the brother to our James , then we could compare it with the date I have for the birth of the Caleb Cash who was bound out in Rockingham Co VA in the 1779. I was told back in the 1960s that Caleb Cash [ the spelling he used] was buried in the same cemetery as his brother James but that Caleb's tombstone along with several others was taken to use for the foundation of a house close to the cemetery.
I have a picture of the tombstone on the grave of James, it is quite large as are others in that cemetery and shaped like an old time coffin. Have you ever located Bible records for any of these people? At this late date I suspect any Bible old enough to have Caleb's date in it would be lost. What traditional information do you have?
