Rachel Ann Cornelius married Thomas Hutchison Bragg, son of John Bragg and Rebecca Hutchison, on 1 July 1866 at Cambridge Methodist Episcopal Church, Cambridge, Guernsey Co., OH, Marriage Book "D", p.327

1900 census shows 12 children born to Rachel, 3 living as of 1900. The "3 living" is not understood -- I can account for 4 living daughters and one living son as of the 1900 census. Moreover, their marriage lasted only 16 years until Thomas died, making 12 children a stretch. Apparently the 1900 census figures were given by her second husband, John Gadd, applicable to his marriage, rather than for Rachel. DLB 2011. Rachel Ann Cornelius married John Gadd in 1896. Rachel Ann Cornelius lived in June 1900 at Cambridge Twp., Guernsey Co., OH.2 She died on 1 February 1909 at Cambridge, Guernsey Co., OH, at age 65. She was buried in February 1909 at Center Baptist Cemetery, Center, Guernsey Co., OH, Findagrave #28233011.
