    Notes 
    • RESEARCH: Only the 1850 census gives Rachel's birthplace as Indiana which seems the most likely as the census was taken on 11 September and she was listed as being 1 month old. Since they were listed as living in Boone County, Indiana, it seems unlikely that Rachel would have been born in Ohio and within one month the family had moved to Indiana in time to be counted in the census.

      Found a Rachel A. Allen md John L. Finn, 22 Feb 1891, Lebanon, Boone, Indiana on FamilySearch.org. This Rachel would have been about 41 years old at the time of this marriage if she is of this family. Since this Rachel was 29 years old, unmarried, and still living at home in 1880, this marriage is going to be assumed to be her until proven otherwise.

      John L. Finn was apparently a veteran and he and Rachel were living in the Indiana State Soldiers Home in Tippecanoe Co., IN in 1900. Found one possible Civil War pension card but it lists the widow as Bridget Finn of South Dakota and then says "Contest Widow Rachel Finn". Not sure what that means but soldiers pension appl #686,121 and the cert #458,644. The first widow's application is #804,332 South Dakota with no cert. number. The second widow's application is #804,778 Indiana with no cert number.
