Rachel Elizabeth Dunn (Stroud), 1851-1917

I have found no photos of Rachel and this signature card is enigmatic. Rachel made her mark (x) on legal documents when she was a young married woman. By the time she penned this, she had perfected a beautiful hand.

She homesteaded successfully in Oklahoma in her own right, filing papers in 1892 and receiving title in 1901, whereupon she immediately sold the land.

After the death of John Stroud, she married Washington Carson. Her flowery obituary was published in Beckham County, Oklahoma, where she died.
