Harriet Rainey Bratton #96538078
I am reaching out to you because your Find A Grave memorial for Harriet Rainey 96538078 who married John Simpson Rainey has incorrect parents listed.

William Rainey's will in 1828 in York Dist SC doesn't name a child named Harriet. That's because her parents are Samuel Rainey and his wife Mary nee Fondren Rainey. In Samuel Rainey's will of 1813 in Chester Dist SC, he names his daughter Harriet. In the will of his widow, Mary Rainey, in 1842, she names her daughter as Harriet Bratton. Samuel's Find A Grave # 16693730, Mary's is # 16693731.

All of these wills can be found for free on the South Carolina Archives index search online or familysearch and you can verify that Harriet is not listed in William's will and that she is listed both in Samuel and Mary's wills.

Also, Samuel Rainey is a recognized patriot of the Daughters of the American Revolution and his ancestor number is A093615. If you look him up on the DAR website using his ancestor number or by his name, you will see that Harriet is a proven child of Samuel Rainey and Mary Fondren.

RE: David Douglas
Yes, the name has been spelled with one s or two s's, though out the years.
James Douglas and Rosannah Douglas are David Douglas's parents. There is also a Mrs Rosannah Douglas, which I believe to be a duplicate of Rosannah Douglas. How did the Mrs. get put on that one(no photo). David Douglas also has a duplicate too. All of them are in the Union ARP Church Cemetery. Mrs Rosannah Douglas #132299863, David Douglas has #65063877 and 138299773. James Douglas has #65063980 and Rosannah Douglas has 65063980 also.
Are these people in Union ARP Church records
kept by the Church? How interesting!

I have looked at your John Simpson several times because my James' father was also John. My James Simpson had 13 well documented children by Nancy Henson. He had a second wife named Sally but late in life and there were no children. I will surely keep your information handy because I am seeing some Simpsons in an Arkansas project that I am not familiar with. If anything pops up I will surely pass it along. Thank you so much,

I am working with the sponsor of James Simpson memorial to link and add more photos. Do you have dates for your Dr James Simpson. I think there may be a connection. I can also be reached at annrossi92@gmail.com. Thank you so much for your reply!!! Community Effort pays off!

Hi,

I work up at Brattonsville. Our records show that after her husband Thomas died, Anna or Anne married Dr. William Edwin Ervin (a cousin of Thomas'). Find A Grave has her buried in St. Stephens Episcopal Cemetery in St. Stephen, SC., but says she died in York.

I don't know who compiled any of this research, but the Historical Center in York may have more.

Good Luck! Lisa
