We are looking for the children of Rachel deGraffenreid Sydnor [or Sydner]. She is listed on the census records as having one child: Martin Snyder. I have just learned she may have had another child, a daughter, Bennie Sydner, who married Augustus Green Dawson in Mt. Sterling, KY on 25 May 1886. Gus took his new bride home to the large Dawson ranch in New Mexico Territory. Bennie died two years later giving birth to their child, Margaret Edwena Dawson.

We know by oral tradition that Bennie was the daughter of Rachel Degraffenreid and granddaughter of Rachel Degraffenreid Dawson. We have never found documentation to prove or disprove this information. Thank you for any information. Please contact: Elisabeth Bedford Bowen Butler
