Rachel was born on Sunday, 20 January 1669 in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts. Rachel married William Snowden on 18 June 1699 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, at Old South Church.1 Rachel's husband, William, died on 1 February 1724 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, leaving her a widow.2 An obituary on 9 December 1738 reads: "Died Suddenly Widow Snowden"/ It is quite possible that is is Rachel. Soon after this, a Sarah Snowden takes membership in the church and soon marries there. Possibly, she had been taking care of her sick or invalid mother up to this time.3
