RE: Barbara Rains reburial

I have not had that information on my page, but I know it can be found in a book published by my cousin, Thomas Euclid Rains. Here is a link for one of his books:

And here is a link for the other:

Euclid and another cousin were there when they moved her body to be next to her husband's body and he wrote about it in his book. But I think that I remember that he said that she was fresh from Ireland, and had just migrated down to Alabama with her new husband. I have never thought that she was Native American.

Maybe you found a link through my page, and if so, it will probably still be on Find-a-Grave somewhere. I know of no way of removing information here except for photos added. Otherwise, you can probably obtain the first book from Euclid (I'm Not Afraid of the Dark), and the information will be in there. Since you are related, it would be a great thing for you to read about your cousin, who was blinded from a young age and went on to become a Congressman and built his own house by hand.

Please reply and let me know if you ever find what you are looking for.

Here is your original message to me:

"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."
