I am looking for information on the Raney-Rainey family from Attala and Leake Co. and Amite Co. and Covington Co., Miss.
I know that John Y. Raney arrived in Attala Co., Miss. about 1836 (land records confirm this date) and he settled in McAdams community.
He was in the Leake Co. Rangers during the Civil War.
John Y. Raney married Susan Wigley on Dec, 3, 1829 in Amite Co., Miss. Their children were
Woodson (Watson) V. Raney b. Nov. 1830
John Augustus Rainey b. abt. 1831
Francis M. Raney b. 1836
Josephine Raney b. 1842
Matilda Jane Raney b. 1846
Susan B. Raney b. abt. 1847
Benjamin Franklin Raney b. Feb. 6, 1851
All the children were born in Miss.
If you can tell me anything about these people and or their family's please write me at
I will be glad to share with you what I have or will find out.
I am from John Augustus Rainey ( his last name was changed in his Civil War records).
