In the 1870 Osceloa, St. Clair County, Missouri census Hugh and Rachel Luttrell are listed along with their 3 month old daughter, who has no name. Perhaps she was sickly and they held off naming her. At any rate, I don't think she lived much past this time, as there is never a mention of this child again that I have found.
The pension file records the information of two other daughters that died at a young age.
- Mary E. Luttrell born 16 April 1879 and died 12 March 1880.
- Dicy Anna Luttrell born 17 February 1883 and died 13 May 1888.
When I read this or come across other ancestor stories that are similar, it certainly puts my own "problems" into perspective. Although I never knew Rachel, I admire the strength of character she must have had to live through all of this.
