Rachel Ogilvie
     Rachel Ogilvie was christened on 2 August 1816 at Dundee. She married Dr James Duncan on 10 June 1840 at Dundee, Scotland, attended by 44 relations. In an addendum to Annie Ogilvie's Memoirs, her daughter Minnie Ogilvie writes: "One of her (Rachel [nee Jameson] Ogilvie's) greatest sorrows was the death of her daughter Rachel in India. (Alas! How many go to that country never to return). She had had an unhappy love affair, and when another opportunity of marriage presented itself, in the person of Major Duncan, a medical officer in the East India Company's service, her parents put no obstacle in her way, though when they said goodbye to her they had little hope of seeing her again. It turned out as they feared, for she died in India and her husband soon after her, and the children came home with their Ayah to fill an empty corner in the Mother's heart." Rachel Ogilvie died on 21 September 1846 at Cherrapunje, Meghalaya, India, at age 30 at the birth of her third baby, Hannah. To read the "Ayah's Story" click icon above.
