I recently obtained a copy of some family Bible pages which indicate that my great-great grandmother, Rachel Voris/Vorhis (or other variant spelling) was born in Preble County. Her date of birth was August 14, 1820. A long shot here, but was just wondering if you knew the names of the children of Luke Vorhis/Chissey Banta? My Rachel has been quite a mystery, with her place of birth in the censuses listed as Connecticut, PA and Ohio. I feel the family Bible pages (which belonged to one of her sons) are the most likely to be accurate. She was married in 1841 in Williams County, Ohio, so doesn't show up by name in census records before her marriage. Thanks for any information!
