One Response to Rains, Horace George

  1. Nicola Rains says:

    I am a distant relative of Sergt. Horace Rains’s (he is a great-uncle), my father’s father was the youngest of 8 children born to James and Mary Rains – Horace was their 5th child. I would be very interested to hear from any descendants of either Horace or any of his brothers (there was one sister: Annie Jane).
