Hi,We have an Amos G. Raines , born 1864 (census) in Va, son of John M. Raines . We firmly believe John M. Raines is the brother of William Rowzee Raines of Va. We have no proof or records of this . John M. Raines's children are listed as Lucy Ann,born 1851 - John T.,born 1853 - James E. born 1857 - Sarah E., born 1858 - Emily F., born 1862 and Amos G., born 1864. John's wife - Mary Francis Fritter,1825
My ggrandfather is William Rowzee Raines. We have not found his parents yet. I think we need to look outside Stafford, Va. for our answers . I am working with two other on-line Raines cousins. We are having fun !Hope we can help you.
