Marriage record for Clayton Lambert & Rachel Lee Pearce
After the death of first wife Rhoda Lee in September 1850, my 4th-great-grandfather Clayton Lambert married her sister, Rachel Lee Pearce. The two were married in Fayette County, Indiana on 14 December 1850. A copy of their marriage record was available in the Indiana Marriage Records 1811-1959 database on FamilySearch (see below).
Rachel Lee had previously been married to Isaac Pearce (on 1 May 1834 in Vigo County, Indiana). In the 1850 Census taken in November 1850, Rachel appears as a widow in Vigo County. Rachel Lee Pearce Lambert died on 26 May 1877 in Fayette County.
