A NC/SC Bryant family scrapbook I have has a William "Will" J. Raines b. Nov. 17, 1872 and died Oct. 11, 1966. He married a Violet Chapman who was born Nov. 9, 1884 and died June 17, 1950. That would make her only 14 when your Crawford was born, but I guess that's possible. Both Will and Violet are buried in the Oak Grove Church Cemetery in Quebec, NC--which isn't too far from Traveler's Rest. Will's father was Henry Clay Raines (b. May 20, 1845; d. Nov. 3, 1924) and his mother was Lydia Bryant (b. Nov. 17, 1844; d. 1950). Will's siblings were Ethbert (b. 1870), Edward (b. 1874 d. 1938), Ernest (b. 1880), Maybelle (b. 1883) and Pauline (b. 1887). Will's paternal grandfather is listed as Robert Raines, but no dates are given. Other information in this scrapbook states that Ethbert Raines' wife, Sally Owen Raines, was a first cousin to Vivian Owen Crawford--just wondering if this might indicate a connection between the Crawfords and the Raines, and perhaps a clue as to the source of your grandfather's name. If this Will Raines matches information you have, I'll be glad to look more closely through my information and share with you. I'm new to Wikitree and am just getting started adding all of my information.
Oh, and I have been told by my grandmother that she has Cherokee blood in her, but not sure if that is from the Bryant branch of the family tree.
