Pioneer Rachel Littlefield died 100 years ago.


Rachel Rosina Corey Littlefield died 100 years ago. She is buried in Farmers Valley Cemetery in Hamilton County, north of Sutton. Her family is part of the robust story of early settlers along the Big Blue River. One of her sons was killed by Indians and is a big part of the area folklore/history.

Rachel's brother was Alonzo Adelbert Corey, an early Sutton homesteader and town merchant.
