Very good way of logically working the problem...No I don't show any "Rachel" in the descendancy charts of William's family. I have so much on the Dowells' that I haven't input - - and I truly feel have a problem. Right now I'm trying to go from my current Dowell line and slowly work backward, proving each step. Unfortunately I can't make it past my husband's grandfather, Ephraim's parents.....can't figure out who they were. A week in Salt Lake didn't help me this time.
