Imagine someone that old!

Robert and Maria Carson which were Rachel’s parents met in the winter of 1879 when they both sang at a musical social chorus. They fell in love, got married, and had children who were Marian Frazer, Robert, and Rachel.

As a little girl, Rachel helped the farm pets around the farm. She had a lot fabulous teachers. Her first great teacher was her mother Maria who loved books and music. Her mother introduced her to literature and nature while  diseases struck the town of Springdale, PA. Rachel also loved to read and write.
