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.

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