Theodore Turley welcomes Rachel Ann Cordon to this world 24 January 1844

Alfred Cordon Journal
January, 1844 My wife was confined and brought forth a Daughter. The house we lived in was a verry cold house, and a cold spell of weather coming on, she suffered verry much. She was took with severe Shocks of the Ague, had five shakes in twenty four hours; I related her situation to Mr. Turley and his wife verry kindly came over to see her, and offered me a room in his house. Accordingly I got a wagon and took her over to his house which was verry warm and comfortable, In a few days she began to amend. We named our little daughter Rachel Ann.
