Rufus Rainey born 1896 in Mecklenburg Co.,VA moved to Buckingham County,Virginia after the death of his wife Mary Wolfe in 1930. In 1942 WWII Draft Registration form he lists his son R.P. Rainey, Jr as contact person. Rufus Rainey, Jr lived in Mecklenburg County and was a Virginia State Policeman serving the Clarksville area. Family member of Rufus Rainey, Sr's brother William Dallas Rainey remembers that Rufus, Sr. also was in law enforcement and 1942 draft form lists his employer as town of Dillywn,VA. Policeman or deputy sheriff? Nothing known of him after 1942, but a grandson Harold Lee Rainey 1940-1998 buried in Dillwyn Town Cemetery. Perhaps Rufus buried there also. Any help would be appreciated.
