Isaac Wilson Rainey b 1849 in Tippah County, Ms. d. 1938 at his daughter's home outside of Nashville, Tn (Old Hickory). On his death certificate he  is listed as the son of Wilson Rainey by his son - in -law, J. C. White.  My grandfather , William Thomas Rainey is his son as well as the brother to John Henry Rainey of Cullman, Ala.  Isaac's  mother is Seperniah Rainey b. about 1833 with possible maiden name Collins.  She also had Josephine Rainey b 1856 and Sarah b 1852.  Look up the Census of 1860, Tippah County, Mississippi.  I have a portrait of Seperniah in which my grandfather has written her name on the back.  She is dressed in Indian dress and boots.  She has refined features with long wavy hair and is possibly of Chickasaw descent.  Unfornuately  there is no confirming information.  She was not in the Trail of Tears and I have not found anything on her through the various libraries in Mississippi.  The records be that as they may for the Chickasaw Indians are in Jackson, Mississippi are for 1858-1860.  In talking to the Chickasaw Nation outside of OKC, there are no records on her.  She was possibly born in Ala.  In the Tippah County, Mississippi, 1860 Census, next door to her is Isaac Wilson Rainey b. about 1875 and his wife Elizabeth Harriet Kirk Rainey-no other information found except Elizabeth shows a son , Monroe Rainey.   Question- how is this Isaac related- I don't know.  I have an old snapshot  which is titled Seperniah (Collins) Rainey washing clothes in an old black pot I believe over a fire.  It is not a good picture but my grandmother  Rainey gave me that information years ago and I noted it.  I have found information on a Wilson Rainey b. abt. 1824 and serve in the Civil War 1861-1865.  No other info. on him.  It has taken me from 1999 to find this information and yet I am still finding a brick wall.  Good luck to you. lynn
