I am interested in you sharing your documents with me regarding Joshua Borden. Joshua Borden is my great-great-great grandfather. He was married to Mary, maiden name unknown. He had a daughter Rachel (Rachel Rebecca or Rebecca Rachel) born 8/3/1815 in Burlington County, New Jersey. She married James Douglas Ledbetter and died 10/19/1893.
