Rachel Schmidt was born in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. At 16, she left home to live near the waterfront. During her travels, she met a fisherman named George Wall. Together, they traveled to Philadelphia and New York City, eventually making their way to Boston.

When George left her, Rachel took a job as a domestic servant in Boston's affluent Beacon Hill neighborhood, where she claimed to be "very contented."

George later returned and convinced Rachel to leave her job and join him as a pirate in 1781. They stole a boat named ESSEX and began preying on vessels off the New Hampshire coast. Their tactic involved disguising the ESSEX as a damaged ship, with Rachel calling to passing vessels for help. When rescuers docked to assist, Rachel, George, and their crew would board and rob them. They reportedly robbed at least 12 ships and killed at least 24 sailors.

In 1782, George and several crew members drowned when their ship wrecked in a storm. Rachel survived and returned to Boston, where she continued her thievery by sneaking aboard docked ships and robbing the crew while they slept.

Rachel accumulated several charges for petty theft and larceny. However, it was a charge she claimed to be innocent of that ultimately led to her demise. On March 18, 1789, Rachel Wall was accused of stealing a bonnet, shoes, and buckles from 17-year-old Margaret Bender, who was walking along the road. Rachel was arrested for highway robbery. During her trial, she denied the theft, claiming she had never seen Margaret but admitted to several acts of piracy.

Despite her claims of innocence regarding the highway robbery, Rachel was found guilty. She was hanged in front of a crowd of thousands on Boston Common on Thursday, October 8, 1789. She was the last woman to be hanged in Massachusetts
