There is absolutely no evidence that the first Rachel Redd or her father Andrew were Quakers. It was the second Rachel who married John who was disowned in 1808 for marrying out by a priest. There is also the possibility that John Painter had previously been disowned (for marrying Rachel#1,the non-Quaker) and that would also have been reason for Rachel#2 to be accused of marrying out. The second Rachel was the d/o George Redd and Granddaughter of Adam Redd (brother of Andrew) both of whom were members of the Friends. George was also disowned by the Hopewell Friends for attending the wedding of his daughter the second Rachel. The Quakers had some unusual customs and if one acknowledged their error to the Meeting they could be readily returned to good standing in the Meeting. Apparently,that is what Rachel#2 and John did as they are buried in a Quaker cemetery in Ohio, something that would not happen unless they were in good standing.
