RACHEL WILLIAMS LEASE was born February 27, 1825, and died November 27, 1901 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She married MATHEW MCGREGOR. Mathew was born in Western Pa. and lived there most of his adult life, I suspect this is also true of Rachel. However, I do not know the parents of Rachel, nor do I know the origins of the Williams name.
According to the 1860 Census for North Fayette Township, Allegheny County, Pa. Mary A. Leas (age 27)is living with the Mathew and Rachel McGregor. Mary is undoubtedly related somehow to Rachel.
Rachel was buried in Union Dale Cemetery in Pittsburgh.
