I'm looking for the maiden name of Matilda Rains b. 1822 d. 1889, married to Robert Rains in 1869 in Christian County, Missouri.
I'm also trying to find out what happened to Robert Rains when he disappears from Taney County, Missouri, he is not in the 1860 census and his wife remarried in 1869 to Jacob Roberts.She became Jacob Roberts 3rd wife.
I am also trying to find out what happened to the youngest children from Matilda and Robert Rains union.Their children Isaac and Dangerfield lived with their mother Matilda and step father Jacob Roberts, but the two younger children do not show up in any census with their mother after 1850, when their natural father Robert Rains was still with them.
On the off chance that someone here knows any of this, they may also know something about this one.Robert and Matilda Rains son Dangerfield married Amanda Roberts and had a son named Henry J Rains (Raines)along with other children.
Our family belives Henry J Rains to have been orphaned at a young age and raised by his Aunt Emma Rains.Robert Rains did have a sister Emeline Rains...so it's seeming possible along with the fact that Dangerfield and Amanda drop off the census after 1880 I believe.The next census shows Henry J Rains living with a family named Adams, who were related to the family through a couple of marriages and who's family lived a couple of doors down from Dangerfield and Amanda when they are last censused.
With no real census left from 1890, the 20 years of Henry J Raines youth is seems like it's just off the record, but I'd like to document somehow if he did indeed live with his Aunt Emma Rains and what happend to his parents and where his siblings went.
