About Rachel Lavender (Probart)

Possible maiden names For Rachel Rhem Lavender: Reman Probart Koonce Some say Elizabeth but I think that is the William Lavender from Washington, N.C. in Beaufort Co., sourced by the Lavender Bible.

The Lavender Bible I have seen is from a completely different century . The wife of this William Lavender named her children by him Levin Probart Lavender and William Lane Lavender. Which appear to be her parents last names. I believe it was a grandaughter also claim to of Dutch ancestry.

Another note from Debra:

Jacob Rhem was one of Melcher Rhem's son and William Lavender appears several times as well as Koonce which has also come up as Rachel Rhem Lavender's maiden name. Also Probart appears. So we have Elizabeth and Mary Probart and Michael Koonce keeping in mind this maybe William Lavender Jr. and we are looking at the next generation so if it is his stepbrother or stepfather I will have to use dates to try and figure it out which I have not as of yet.
