    Notes 
    • There is an Ethelbert L. Raines, 41 yoa in the 1860 census, with a wife Cecia A. age 33 and daughter Ellen A that lived next to Williamson T. Horne in the 1860 census. This is too co-incidental not to be the correct Raines, although it is unknown how John Bart came from Ethelbert L., unless it was a nickname. There is no census info for a John Bart anywhere in Virginia (I would rather be called Bart than Ethelbert). 5/18/2010 Ethelbert confirmed from daughter's marrige records.

      The Raines family had $7,000 in Real Estate abd $12,000 in Personal, which made them very well off by the standards of those days. The Horne family only had $500 in personal and no real estate dollars entered which probably means they were renting the farm from the Raines. Both properties were side by side on the 1850 and 1860 census.

      1870 census: real estate value $1760; personal Prop$150

      Died before 1874 as his daughter's wedding was listed as being at the residence of Celcia A. Raines (his wife). Had he been alive it would have listed it at his residence.
