Frank Hiett Rhea wrote 6 July 1921 in Springfield, Illinois:
"My great-grandmother Rachel Jolliff Rhea was a woman of great size, tall and big boned, of a very happy disposition and very religious. The old set of Jolliffs, that is, all I ever saw, were big, powerfully built men and women."
Rachel loved singing and was always called upon to pitch the hymns at worship.
