I am searching for info and ancestors of Robert Mack Gaines. He was born in Alabama in 1853 and died in Minden, Louisiana on 7-7-1926. His wife's name was Rebecca Ralston. She was born in 1858 and died on 2-3-1927 in Minden, Louisiana. They lived in Northwestern Louisiana and had 17 children.
I believe that Robert's father (name unknown) was born in Ireland. Robert's mother was named Mariah? Carter. Rebecca's parents were Frank Ralston, born 1817, and Lucy Robinson, born 1822.
Any info on any of the above mentioned people would be very much appreciated.
