To researchers of Moses & Rachel (Jurey) Messenger

I have been trying to find the best way to disseminate this information and figure an open post here might be the best. The Rachel Messenger that shows up with Moses Messenger in the 1870 census is not Rachel Nancy Jurey, the woman he married in 1825. Especially since she is reported to have past away in August of 1850. I have some evidence that makes me believe in 1861, Moses married my widowed gg-grandmother Rachel Sheldon. Of course, Moses passes away in 1878 and a Rachel Messenger shows up in the 1880 census as a housekeeper for a William Cantwell. That is the last record I have of her.
