The Rainey genealogy from here up is quite uncertain There were 5 John Raineys in one county, probably related and the same first names among their progeny. It is very confusing.

I have remove William and Mary as parents due to a newspaper article describing them as having an only child, Benjamin.

See for a listing of records

Page 565 - 2 Mar 1836. Isaac Raney to Mary Wells his daughter, both of Bedford Co., TN, all his interest &c in land in Bedford Co., on the north side of Duck River, it being a part of three tracts belonging to said Rainey. Borders A. C. Wilson, G. H. Allen, and B. G. Raney's line and J. N. Raney. 227 acres. Wit: Jos. Lillard and J. N. Rainey. Reg: 19 Jan 1837. .

Same source as above but there were several Isaac Raineys in the Bedford/Marshall County area. Needs more digging.
