Rachael Boone1

F, #2932, b. 1793
Father*Jessie Boone2,3 b. 1748, d. circa 1829
Mother*Sarah McMahon3 b. circa 1750
     Rachael Boone, daughter of Jessie Boone and Sarah McMahon, was born in 1793 in Burke County, North Carolina.3,4 Conflicting evidence placed her birth in 1800 (1860 census.)5
Rachael married Asbury Marvel Coffey, son of James Coffey and Deliah Ferguson, on February 2, 1813 at North Carolina. (King and Maries County History state marriage was in McMinn County, Tennessee). North Carolina Marriage Bonds states bondsman was Benjamin Coffey and witness was Daniel Moore for the marriage bonds.6,7,8 Rachael Boone moved circa 1825 to Kentucky. She moved circa 1830 to Maries County, Missouri. She and Asbury Marvel Coffey moved in 1834 from from Tennesse to Missouri. Moving with Rachael were Thomas Coffey, Elizabeth Coffey and Squire Coffey.9
Rachael Boone was listed as the head of a family on the 1840 U.S. Census at Greene County, Missouri. Based on ages, it is possible that the following were also living in the household:, Campbell Coffey, a free white male ten and under fifteen years old, Squire Coffey and Irvin S. Coffey, a free white male fifteen and under twenty years old, Lavina Coffey, a free white female fifteen and under twenty years old, Elizabeth Coffey, a free white female twenty and under thirty years old.10 Her husband, Asbury, died between 1848 and 1850.11
Rachael Boone lived in 1860 Jackson Township, Maries County, Missouri.5
Rachael was a mid wife in 1860.5
Rachael died after 1860.5
Rachael is a head of household, under the name of "Rachel Coffey", on the 1860 U. S. Census for Jackson Township, Missouri. She was identified as ia 60-year-old female born in North Carolina, she could not read or write.5 She, Squire Coffey and Isaac W. Odom were neighbors according to the 1860 census. They were living in Jackson Township, Missouri.5,12,13 Conflicting evidence placed her death before 1850 (Maries County Volume II.)9
Source: Descendants of Israel Boone, Alice H. Boone, 1969, McCann Publishing & Litho Co., Springfield, MO
"They (Rachel and Marvel) must have moved to Kentucky soon after marriage--census of 1850, Osage Co., MO, shows that their 5th child, Irvin, was born in KY in 1822-23, probably in Wayne Co., where Rachel's brother Daniel lived.
The following is a copy of Court Minutes--1824-31, Page 310, 2 Sept 1828: "The execution of a deed of conveyance from Marvel Coffey and Rachel Coffey, citizens of McMinn County, to Thomas Hutcheson of the State of Kentucky, for 100 acres of land in the County of Wayne and State of Kentucky, was, this day duly proven in open court by the oaths of Asbury M. Coffey and Jesse Boone, the two subscribing witnesses thereto and ordered to be recorded and certified for registration."
Jesse Boone was Rachel's father, so it may be that the other witness, Asbury M. Coffey, was the father of Marvel - he was also a witness to Jesse Boone's will - but that is mere speculation as no proof has been found.
After the death of Rachel's father, Jesse Boone, which occurred in late 1829 or in 1830, the Marvel Coffeys lived on the old Jesse Boone Homestead until 1835, when they moved to central Missouri. Rachel's brother Jonathan and family had moved to Missouri the year before, but the fact that Rachel's name was in the Church Minutes in March 1835 indicates that she did not go at the same time. When she did come to Missouri, she brought with her a 2-year old grandchild, whose mother had died, and an infant child of the same mother, so this may have been what prevented the Coffeys' coming in 1834.
The first name of Rachel's deceased daughter is unknown, but the daughter's husband came with them to Missouri.
