It is claimed that Rachel Kerr was daughter of David Kerr, b. June 18, 1725, and his first wife, Martha Faulkner, b. July 12,

1760 (?); d. April 16, 1786."

(The dates are all wrong in the records sent). I think there is confusion of David Kerr, b. 1725, and a son, David B. Kerr. Another authority states: "Rachel was dau. of David B. Kerr and Martha (or Polly ) Faulkner."

The 1790 Census, New York, gives:

"David B. Kerr (Carr) of Saratoga Town, N. Y."
