      Rachel Park Satterlee's Bible Records (Rachel Satterlee Dunn)
In possesion of S.K. Dickinson, Jr.

Rachel Park Satterlee was born July 24, 1808 in Elmira, Chemung Co., NY. She was the daughter of Elias Satterlee of Stonington, New London, CT and Elizabeth Smith.   April, 10, 1829, in Elmira, NY she married Thomas Dunn, son of William Dunn and Mercy Sayre.   Rachel died April 02, 1885 in Sparta, Monroe Co., WI. Rachel's bible was given to her by her brother, Benedict Satterlee, who was a missionary with Whitman. Somewhere in the southern Midwest territories, Whitman left for Oregon. Benedict stayed with several Pawnee guides. Family history has stated that Benedict was murdered by hostile Indians, when in fact, historical records state Benedict stayed with two Pawnee guides when he was attacked by white traders. He died there.

Rachel's records in the bible are as follows:



William Dunn and Mercy Sayre

Benedict Satterlee and Rachel Park
Conflicting records state Benedict died just before the battle of Wyoming or in the battle of Wyoming and that Rachel died in Wyoming Co., PA.   My family records state Rachel died on her way back to her people in CT.

I apologize for taking so long to get these to you.  Seems the trail of Daniel Dickinson and Betsey Stowell had me looking all over the east coast for a few month.  And still not much closer to anything.

Here are Rachel Satterlee's bible records .  My family has the bible.  I think its accurate, very accurate.

Belongs maybe on Chemung County, as that is where the Dunns and Satterlee's began.

I'll send a genealogical chart for Rachel--it goes back to 1620 in England altho the Satterlee records say it goes back to 1210.  I'm reluctant to go further than William of Ides because Goldie Satterlee, who wrote the Satterlee book, was told by several genealogists in England that she was WAY off base to the Satterlee's previous to William.  Evidently she was ignoring them and published the work anyway.  I'm hesitant to include -- seems there is enough confusion of lines with the internet information as it is.  If someone finds the book, fine.  I just dont want to add to the confusion.

My family is copyrighting information on my line.  So I included a note on the bible records.  I'm fairly adament about people needing to contact me about using the records because,, like I said, I dont want my family information inaccurate..trying to prevent that as much as possible.  I suppose I'm going to irritate people because of it, but at least I can address some questions regarding the line this way.

If there is anything you need that I have not included, please let me know.

Will send the chart later as I need to get reference and resource material honed down to managable material.

Thanks for posting this for my family.

I hope it helps some else looking for family lines.
