Rachel Tristram

Rachel is my seventh great grand aunt; we are related through her parents Ralph and Anna Rose TRISTRAM.  Rachel was born 23 August 1658 in Biddeford, Maine, the fifth child of the family.[1]  According to one source Ralph Tristram had no other descendants other than the children of daughter Hannah, thus I would assume that daughter Rachel did not have any children that lived to adulthood.[2]  There are no records after her birth records that have been found at this time.
