There is a Rachel Holmes buried in the Ballston Spa Cemetery, Saratoga County, identified in FindAGrave as Rachel Broadwell Lindsley Holmes.  I believe that the information at FindAGrave may be incorrect.  The John Holmes named as the husband of the "other" Rachel died 29 Sept. 1860, and is also buried at Ballston Spa.
