|knittingcircle||RE: Barbara Rains reburial|
I'm on ancestry.com and everyone thus far (I think 23 family trees or so) lists Barbara White either as the daughter of Nicholas White and Martha Reece, both Virginia born, or Nicholas White the French born fur trader, married to an Indian woman. Both Nicholas Whites existed (even though White isn't a French name, a man named Nicholas White who self identified as French born from Marseille did live in the area), the question is which one is the "right" Nicholas White. (Some also incorrectly list her as the daughter of Sally Pollard, who was born after Barbara was.) When I saw the entry somewhere about the reburial of Barbara Rains and family lore about her being considered Native American, I put more stock in the French Nicholas White. But if Barbara was Irish born, then she has a different background altogether than either of these two scenarios! Wow.
I went to amazon and I'm Not Afraid of the Dark was listed used from $49-$119, unfortunately, but perhaps one will eventually turn up at a local used book store at a normal price. Did Thomas Euclid Rains say she was Irish in the book?
|knittingcircle||Barbara Rains reburial|
Hello! Barbara White Rains was my 3rd great grandmother. I remember visiting this page some time last year and seeing information on her reburial; that she originally could not be buried next to her husband due to the stone embedded in the earth and that when she was recently reburied next to her husband (and the new gravestone was added), it was observed that she had long, black hair and was tall. A reference was also made to a rumored Native American background. Was this information removed or am I remembering a similar site? Thank you.

Just a hello from your 10th great cousin.
Hi. Did I send the transfers you wanted? If not, please go to EACH memorial and send a "Suggestion a Correction" request with you contributor #, which is 47042797.
That way I won't have to spend a lot of time digging around for each one.
-----What you sent:
Thank you so much for adding my family members. I request that you would transfer ownership of the following to me: My Mother, Muriel Prestridge; my step-father, Herbert Prestridge; my grandfather, Marshall Jasper Rains; and my grandmother, Minnie Bell Rains. It would mean so very much to me. Thank you again.
