(BUDD), Rachel 1

- Marriage (2): COATS, William on Feb 23, 1733/34 1
- Died: After Oct 6, 1769, Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
It is entirely possible that this Rachel Coats was formally Rachel Budd as her husband has a partnership in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1765 with a Budd where he is a property owner selling town lots. She, in otherwords, could be the Rachel Ann Budd referred to in early 19th century 2nd Coate genealogies: Ex: The Old Coate's Genealogy, Letter from Ada Hair Coats and the genealogy by Amanda Helen Pemberton Krell. None of these have proved to be a reliable source though.
