Martha Rainey, Weir, MS

My maternal grandmother, Martha (Rainey) Rector was born in Weir, MS, Choctaw County in 1895 according to family records and oral history. Her brothers and sisters were Wilson, Anzie, Luella, William S., Major, Singleton, Albert and Lillian. She was married to Elmer Rector in Arkansas (actual date unknown). We also have an oral history that speaks of our Native American heritage and although no one was quite sure, I have only been able to locate the family name Rector among documents listed under Black Choctaws and Black Creeks.
Anyone who has information on this African American family line, please respond.
