While researching for inf re Lake City are I found birth dates re the Carrier surname. Possibly you might already have them but I'll send them anyway.
Thomas W. Raine came from Ironton, Ohio to Summerville, PA Jefferson county where on October 16, 1873 he married Miss Mary E. Carrier (unknown her parents name)..Thomas Rain was in the mill business in Clarion county before he purchased land in the Lake City area. Apparenlty his business partner was Mr. Carrier, possibly the father of his wife.
My grandfather worked for Thomas W. Raine in Clarion county at his mill. My grandfather went to Lake City area to work with Thomas Raine. in 1891 Thomas Raine purchaed 1,555 acres of land from Henry Moore of Lake City
with plans to take out the timber and later built a mill at the site. The village which grew up around the mill became known as Rainetown/Raintown.
Rainetown existed from about 1892-1905 when it closed. Many of the residents of Lake City and the nearby rural area worked at Rainetown therefore the names in the Lake City cemetery include many former Rainetown employees.
Births in Rainetown: Robert A. Carrier 2/26/1903 to Mary Blanche and James Henry Carrier; James F. Carrier, 9/10/1899 to Mary B and James F. Carrier; Viola Madge Carrier 2/16/1897 to Mary and J. H. Carrier (laborer)
