In Reply to: Re: RACHEL DONELSON JACKSON by Fancy L. Pitts Woodring of 423

Andrew and Rachel Jackson adopted the son of Rachel's brother Severn. Andrew Jackson Donelson (son of Samuel and Mary Smith Donelson) and another of Rachel's nephews was AJ's secretary at the White House and trusted friend-- but he was not the adopted son. There is a lot of confusion out there about this.
