Hi there my name is Randolph Rain I am descended from:
Stonewall Rain and Martha Allen Thomas
Cornelius Rain and Doris Hedden
Cornelius Rain and Lenorah Coburn
Cornelius Rain and Telullah Burnette
Cornelius Rain and Martha MB Williams who were married in St Marys Ga and moved to Alachua county Fl sometime prior to 1847.
I have unearthed a great deal of information about the Rain family in South Georgia and North Florida from roughly the 1760' on. We left Ga and Settled in N. FL (Nassau River) just prior to the Revolution and remained loyal to King George (Florida was British at the time), then after the Seven Years War Britan ceded Florida back to Spain and Joseph, Cornelius, and William Rain(Jose, Cornelio and Guillermo) stayed in N. Fl and swore allegiance to King Charles of Spain. Then in 1795 the Rains were involved in an attempted overthrow of the Spanish Colonial authorities for which their lands were embargoed (confiscated) and we returned to Georgia and became American citizens. I live here in North Florida and am available to do some research in this area if anyone is interested. Camden County GA has an excellent historical library that contains a fair amount of information about the Rain family if one is persistent enough to find it and Alachua county has one of the best Ancient Records Presences on the internet WWW.alachuaclerk.org
