RE: James Alexander Attaway
Sharon, did you contact Roy Hand about Sarah Rainey Attaway? Did he know where Sarah was buried?

RE: James Alexander Attaway
Sharon, I've found Sarah Frances Rainey's family chart
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/SBF1-CHJ

It shows she did have a younger brother Elihue.
Sarah died in 1902.

In the 1910 census
Troy is living with Elihue Rayney (sp), https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MGF9-WPM

and young Hubert is living with his grandparents William and Elvira Attaway, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MGX4-53T.

James apparently then went to Texas, met and married Maude.

There is an extensive Rainey family chart
http://www.gilestn.genealogyvillage.com/charts/rainey.htm

You might find more information on Sarah Rainey Attaway by contacting Elihue's grandson,Roy Hand via this site http://genforum.genealogy.com/rainey/messages/2065.html

Elihue and several other Raineys are buried in Cabo Cemetery, Enville TN. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GSln=Rainey&GSiman=1&GScid=1971886&

Sure wish I could find Sarah's grave site! Hope this helps.

RE: Troy Attaway
The information was provided to me by Shirley Stewart Milford. I have transferred Troy Attaway's memorial to her since he is not related.

Attaways
Sharon, my connection with the Attaways is through Elvira Preslar (daughter of Hosea Preslar) who married William Robert Attaway. I began researching Hosea and his children to honor him after discovering he led my g.g.grandmother Catherine Stewart's family to West TN from Anson County,NC.

Since you are apparently kin to the Attaways, I would be happy to transfer the ones I have to you if you would like... just let me know.

RE: Attaway
No, I didn't make a copy as such, just jotted down the information. Glad it is helpful to you.

RE: Attaway
Sharon, I found Sarah on Family Search while researching one of her children with James Alexander to add them to Find A Grave. This file was apparently through a descendant of William ELMER since his is the only death date entry of her children.

This was the first I knew about Hubert. Then I found him on the 1910 census living with his grandparents! I tried to locate Sarah's parents on Find A Grave but didn't have any luck there, but at least we know who they were... and who she was! It's so exciting to me to find an unknown! How ironic that James Alexander is an unknown to whoever made this file. I wish there was some way to let that person know but haven't figured out how to do that.

Glad to know about Bonnie and Leo!
Thanks,
Shirley

Photo of William H Attaway
Thanks for posting the photo of William and his 2nd wife on the other memorial page. I guess the creator didn't see the earlier memorial I had made that had your picture on it or it was family and he didn't want to delete his.

I just sent a SAC to him requesting he change the id of the lady to William's 2nd wife - now I can delete my memorial.

Picture on William Hosea Attaway
Sharon, please delete your picture on William Hosea Attaway 96290420 which is a duplicate memorial accidently made after mine and ...
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Attaway&GSiman=1&GScid=402506&GRid=96290420&

then please post the picture on William H Attaway 98826574 so I can delete my memorial. Your picture is great and I don't want to lose it.

RE: Photo of William Hosea Attaway 96290420
I was going to transfer the Attaway memorials that I have made,including William Hosea's memorial, to you since you are kin and have pictures. But after you posted the picture of William Hosea and Bettie on my memorial for him 96290420, Glen Peddy made another memorial for William Hosea on Oct 13, 2012 # 98826574. Do you know Glen? Is he a relative also? Since it is a duplicate, I would delete my memorial but I don't want to lose your picture of William and Bettie. Would you post that picture on Glen's memorial OR maybe he will transfer it to you. Would you like for me to transfer my Attaway memorials to you?

Photo of William Hosea Attaway 96290420
Hi,
I goofed! I posted the memorial for William Hosea Attaway 96290420 in the wrong ‘Friendship Cemetery'...
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=96290420
It should have been in the New Friendship Cemetery in Chester County, TN.

I am going to delete my memorial and ask that you please post the picture you posted of William Hosea Attaway and his daughter on his correct memorial William H Attaway 98826574

William H Attaway 98826574
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=98826574

If you happen to have a photo of his wife Elizabeth "Bettie" Attaway, please post it on her memorial 98826633

Elizabeth "Bettie" Attaway 98826633
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=98826633

Thanks so much,
Shirley
