This info comes as combined info of Gloria Carnes, Gladys Colston Shannon,
and myself Jean Bell. I am certain there are errors and will correct any that
are brought to my attention. This chart is not gospel but a starting place for

Henry G. Rainey Family Record

Generation No. 1

1.  HENRY G.1 RAINEY was born 1786 in Dinwiddie Co. , VA, and died 1856 in
Hardeman Co. TN.  He married (1) UNKNOWN ? 1808 in Dinwiddie Co. , VA.  She
was born in VA, and died Aft. 1840 in Hardeman Co. TN.  He married (2) JANE
RILEY 1846 in Hardeman Co. TN.  She was born in AL, and died in Hardeman Co.
TN.

Notes for HENRY G. RAINEY:

Source:  Family information on a chart given to Dorothy Veasey, Martha Raney,
and Helen Rose Raney (sisters living in McCrory AR, descendants of Patrick
Martin Raney). The typed chart was made by Walter W. Raney of McCrory AR 26
Apr 1938.  A handwritten note on the copy we received says Henry Harrison
Raney mar Martha Ellington 8 Feb 1808. She was b 18 Oct 1783 and d 21 Oct
source.  Using census records they were married Dinwiddie Co. VA and she d in 
Hardeman Co. TN. This information  references an unknown obituary.

Billie & Lorine Anderson visited with the three Raney sisters in 1993.
Telephone numbers are 870-731-5804 and 870-731-2040.

All census and court records that we have located indicate his name as Henry G.
Rainey/Raney. The only record where his name is given as Henry Harrison Raney
is in the family history by Walter W. Raney.

Records for Henry G. Rainey/Raney:

Dinwiddie Co. VA Tax lists 1804, 1810-1817 -- gives name as Henry G.
Dinwiddie Co. VA 1810 census: 1 m 0-9; 2 m 10-15; 1 m 16-25;
 
			2 f 16-25; 1 f over 	45

He was 23 yrs old and prob mar ca 1808 so they only had one ch in 1810. He prob
had other relatives living with them: 2 younger boys, 1 girl same age as his
wife, and possibly a mother-in-law. One of the  boys 10-15 was probably his 
younger brother Robert who may have moved with him to Giles Co. TN. Robert
married Sallie Jones in 1819 Bedford Co. VA -- possibly on the way to
Tennessee.

1818 -- moved to Giles Co. TN

Giles Co. TN 1820 census: 4 m 0-9; 1 m 10-15; 1 m 26-44; 1 f 0-9; 1 f 26-44
This family would include Henry G. & wife now about 33 yrs old plus one son 
now about 10; plus 4 boys and 1 girl born between 1810-1820.

Giles Co. TN 1830 census: 1 m 0-4; 1 m 5-9; 2m 10-14; 2 m 15-19;  1 m 30-39;

1 f 5-9; 1 f 15-19; 1 f 40-49.  This would be Henry G. with wife a few years
older than himself. The oldest son is now married and not living with them.
Hartwell Harrison Raney is on the census next door. The four boys born between
1810-20 now have two younger brothers b bet 1820-25 and 1825-30. The girl b
between 1810-20 now has a sister b bet 1820-25.

Land records show Henry G. owned a farm in southern Giles Co. near AL line. 
A possible  brother of Henry G. was Robert and family who lived in Limestone 
Co. AL and Henry G.'s son James L. married in Limestone Co. AL and lived near 
Athens AL.

Henry G. sold his land in 1836 and moved to Hardeman Co. TN. Two of his sons 
Hartwell Harrison Raney and Thomas G. Raney stayed in Giles Co. through 1850's.

Hardeman Co. TN 1840 census:  1 m 10-14; 1 m 15-19; 1 m 50-59; 
				1 f 20-29; 1 f 50-59.
This family would include Henry G. and wife and oldest daughter still 
unmarried. The two youngest sons are still living with family.

Henry G.'s first wife (name unknown) died about 1841 in Hardeman Co. TN. 
Henry G. married Jane Riley in Hardeman Co. 23 June 1846.

Hardeman Co. TN 1850 census:  Henry G. age 63 b VA; Jane  age 35 b AL; 
Stephin age 3; Sarah age 2.

Henry G. died 1856 and all of his children except two moved to Jackson Co. AR. 
The son James L. had stayed in Limestone Co. AL and the dau Susan Winafred 
had married for the second time and remained in Hardeman Co.  Henry G.'s wife 
Jane has not been located in the census.

	
Children of HENRY RAINEY and UNKNOWN ? are:
2.	i.	HARTWELL HARRISON2 RANEY, b. 1810, Dinwiddie Co. , VA; 
            d. Aft. 1870, Izard Co.,  AR.
3.	ii.	THOMAS GILLIAM RANEY, b. 1811, Dinwiddie Co. , VA.
	iii.	ELIZABETH RANEY, b. 1814, Dinwiddie Co. , VA; d. Woodruff Co. AR.
4.	iv.	JAMES L. RANEY, b. 1815, Dinwiddie Co. , VA; d. 1860, 
            Limestone Co. AL.
5.	v.	JOSIAH F. RAINEY, b. 1816, Giles Co. TN; d. 1854, Hardeman Co. TN.
	vi.	EPPS RANEY, b. 1818, Dinwiddie Co. , VA.

Notes for EPPS RANEY:
The family chart made by Walter Wilson Raney in 1938 only lists the name 
Epps Raney, but that person has not been located on any record in Jackson 
or Woodruff Co. AR.  A Peter Raney was living next to the four brothers, 
Daniel P., Thomas G., Hartwell H. and Patrick Henry in 1860. His name may 
have been Peter Epps Raney.  This same Peter married Mary Garrett 10 June 
1846 in Madison Co. TN. and was on the 1850 Haywood Co. TN census. It is 
possible that he stayed near his wife's family rather than moving with the 
Raney family to Hardeman Co. TN.  Since he named his first son Henry it is 
possible that this Peter is the son of Henry G. Raney.

1850 Haywood Co. TN census:
Peter age 31;  Mary age 32;  Matilda age 2


1860 Jackson Co. AR census:
Peter age 38; Mary age 35; Matilda age 14; Henry age 10; George age  5 b AR

Family came to AR between 1855-60 as did the other brothers but he has not 
been located on census after 1860.

            1880, Hardeman Co. TN.
