Searching of my Ancestors

Vanessa Raines Stuff (View posts)
Posted: 923572800000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Raines
I am searching for my ancestors before my Grandfather died
he told me that there was American Indian in his side of
the family.
But he could not remember the name of the tribe, he was pretty old at the time and has since passed on.
So I find my self searching all tribes that were in middle
Tennessee which are Creeks, Cherokees,Choctaws,Chickasaws,Seminoles.
He seemed tho think it was Apache but I am not sure if any
Apache Tribes were in Tennessee.
So far I have not found anything showing that to be true.
Any help relating the name Raines to a Native American Tribe would be so helpful.
I feel I need to find this as soon as possible because my
father is getting old and not in the greatest of health.
And I know he would like to have this information.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Sincerely,

Vanessa Raines Stuff

My Husbands name is Ragan H. Rain-Water. His Fathers name was Randall K. RainWater. Grandfather-A.D. RainWater. They came from Oklahoma and he was told they were Creek-Navajo. We are also looking for ancestors and we know there are several Raines in the family tree. I hope this has helped you some. Please e-mail me if you have any more questions.

Native bloodlines?

Long persistent rumors in the family indicate that we have native blood. I tend to believe it. I cannot find any trace of my father's family before 1905..makes me wonder if they are some of the Raines that I saw you mention.

Hi Dennis,
I saw that you listed "Moore" as a surname you were looking for......what Moore is this? I am looking for my grandfather, Levi Moore that was in Checotah Indian Territory in 1895. His brother, Bomer, was killed there by a Creek Indian, Robert John Gentry. Could your Moore be related to mine? I know he had a family in Oklahoma with him, but I can't seem to find out what happened to them. He married my grandmother in Texas in 1898. They had five children together and I was told that Levi died in 1916 when my dad was 4 years old. My family never knew he had a first family until last year when I started my research. I'd like to find them and learn just what happened to them. I've also been told that there is Indian ancestry in the Moore family. Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you,
Lavern
