Searching for any information on Newt Rains. Who were his parents? He married Minnie Mae Floyd (b.October 18, 1888).They married before 1908 and I think they married in Comanche County, Texas. Newt Rains died around 1917. Could he be buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Gustine, Comanche County? Would appreciate any help. Minnie Rains migrated to Scurry County with her family. Later married Thomas Allen Ellison and move to Aspermont, Stonewall County, Tx. After his death she returned to Scurry County and died there.

Newt and Minnie Rains had the following children:
Floyd Rains b. Mar 13, 1908 (alias Thomas Hunt)
d. May 27, 1988 in Scurry County, Tx
