As the Raines Came Down, 1793-2002
by Dolores Raines Sutton

In 1969 I decided to gather our family info and write our family history and 32 yrs later I am still gathering information and have decided there is no stopping place so will compile what I have.

My Raines info was gathered from South Carolina Alabama,Mississippi,Arkansas and Oklahoma

From Census records, Court records, cemetaries , Civil war records. Bible records and older Descendants

Our first proven ancestor was James Raines born 1793 in South Carolina.
He had at least 1 Brother, Robert, born 1786 in South Carolina.
Proof of their parents names are unproved at this writing but am still looking for documents for proof.
They are on the 1840 census of Walker Co Ala living with their son,Robert, who never Married.
Ever census up until 1850 just list name of Head Of Household.then ages of males and females living in the household.
It list
1 male bt age of 70-80
1 female bt the age of 70-80t
Robert was listed as bt 40-50
They died before 1850 in Walker Co Ala.
On the 1850 census Robert was living with James and his Children
He died bt 1850-1860 in walker co.
Robert filed for government land in 1833 and James Filed in 1834 @ Sipsey ,Ala Walker co.
James remained on his land the remainder of his life.

I have’nt proven when they left South Carolina but was in Ala. In 1818.
James married Milla Barton in Lawrence co Ala Oct 6 1818[have his marriage record]
She was born 1803 in South Carolina to Moses and Fannie Barton.
James and Milla came to walker co in 1832 with the Moses Barton Family.
James and Milla had 9 children.
[1] William Bailey born 1819 Married Elizabeth Kennemore
[2] Francis born ca 1821 Married Byrd Garland Cole
[3] Hiram born 1822 Married #1 Phoebe? #2 Aseneth Adeline Abbott
[4]Allen born 1824 Married Lucinda Robbins
[5] Milla born 1831
[6] Rebecca born 1833 Marraid Isiah Williams
[7] Massa J. born 1835 Married James B. Mullens
[8] James born 1838
[9] Margaret Ann [Peggy] born 1841 Married Wm.Washington Abbott
Milla died 1843 and is buried in the Sardis Cem near Rispey,Ala. Her homemade stone is still readable after all these years.

James remarried in 1850 to a Widow named Susan[ Surname unknown] she had 1 son ,John, born 1845[he is listed as Raines on the 1860 census [which was a common mistake made by census takers ]

James and Susan had 3 Daughters
[1] Sinthia born 1852 Married Robert Williams
[2] Sylvania born 1853 Married John Newton Pate
[3] Lucinda born 1857. Married William Best

James died 1871 in Walker Co .Ala. Have not found Susan after his death and as she was several yrs younger than James she probably remarried.

William Bailey Raines
William Bailey was born 1819 in Ala. He was the first-borne of James and Milla Barton Raines.
He Married 1841 to Elizabeth K. Kennemore.
She was born 1812 in Tenn.
Parents are unproven at this writing.

William and Elizabeth had seven children,all born bt 1842-1854 in Walker Co Ala.
[1] Mary Elizabeth Married #1 Christopher Loggains #2 George Haskins
[2]Milly Samantha Married Steven Loggains
[3]Rispa Francis Married Carroll Loggains
[4]Pamela Priscilla Married John W. Haskins
[5]Robert Bailey Married Louisa Jane Haskins
[6] James William{Bud] Married Hannah Loggains
[7]John Allen Married Mary Elizabeth Bly

They moved into Jefferson Co ,Mud Creek Township in 1849 and stayed there a short time then moved back to Walker 1850

In March 1869 They left Walker Co and on their way to Ark. They stopped in Wayne co Tenn until Oct 1869. then moved to Boone co. Ark. Rolling Prairie Township. Arriving there Nov 1869

BEFORE THEY LEFT Ala. Mary had Married Christopher Loggains
Milly had married Steven [Christophers uncle]
Robert Had Married Louisa Haskins[Johns Sister]
When they left ala Christophers widowed Mother, Sarah Mullens Loggains and her children left with them. Also John and Louisa Haskins Orphaned Brothers and Sisters came too.

There was 22 Members in this family Wagon train when they left walker co
For some reason they stopped in Wayne Co Tenn .
It may have been that Milly and Mary was having their babies. 2 new babies were born in Wayne co

When they arrived in Boone co. There were 24 Family members.another was born 3 wks after they arrived in Ark.
Mary”s Husband Christopher “Ran Off with the midwife” when Christopher Jr. was born in Tenn.
In 1970 I was fortunate to meet the Grandaughter of Milly and Steven Loggains who was 91. And the son of Robert Raines.who remembered a lot about our family.

Christopher Loggains Sr, supposley changed his name after he left and the family never heard from him again and as this is very likely as I have searched every state 1870-1880 for him with no results.

This family must have been a bunch of Hearty Pioneers as they had to have traveled from Tenn. to Ark. In The Winter months to have arrived in Ark in Nov 1869.with several young children and 3 newborn babies and all survived.

Mary Elizabeth died 1878 in Boone Co. By then Mary had Married George Haskins. And on the 1880 Taney co. Mo. Census ,William Bailey and his Youngest Son,John Al ,was living with them there.
William died 1881 @ Mincy,Mo. Taney Co.
