Rainey, Franklin, The Count De La Vega Del SellaNueva Asturias (Spain)
My family name interest is Rainey - my paternal ancestors. In my possession a letter from B Franklin, who possible was either an employee, a close friend or relative of The Count De La Vega Del SellaNueva Asturias (Spain)/ The letter sent to my great Aunt was written in 1910 and refers to my great grandmothers death in Grimsby that year. B Franklin writes the letter as if he or she is a close family member. I have tried to get information directly from Asturias about either the Count or B Franklin to no avail. I wonder if anyone out there can offer a) an background on the Count in question – am aware the Spanish Civil War may have made the survival of such records difficult but also b) the identity of B Franklin.
Even if you have any theories that is welcome too ?
