My great-great-grandfather, John Baptiste Rachal (usually spelled Rashell on the records I have found, and other ways, too) was from somewhere in Louisiana. He came to Texas and was granted land in Nachedoches, Texas. He had a son named John who was also granted land and he married Caroline Sarah Jane Pellom in Bastrop Co., Texas, and they had two daughters, Mary and Martha. The next record I found was a marriage of Caroline Rashell in Live Oak Co., Texas. Mary was first married to John Will Williams from Alabama; they had two sons, William and Wright, when he went on a cattle drive from which he never returned. Mary then married Elijah Placker and had about 10 more children. William Williams was my grandfather. I have no other information about these Rachal ancestors and would like to know anything at all about them if anyone has any information.
