John Rainey of Kingfisher County, Oklahoma
Rosa is listed as Bertha in the 1880, Gentry County, Missouri Census. She is named Rosa B. for the 1900 census of Skeleton, Kingfisher Oklahoma census. Rosa D. is the way she is listed on the 1910-1920 censuses of Kingfisher and Kay Counties in Oklahoma. I assume the 'D' is an error.
I. Edward Arthur RAINEY born JUN 1879, Gentry County, Missouri, employed as a Barber-Owned own shop, married 25 OCT 1908, in Kingfisher County, Oklahoma, Miretta Pearl MCKISSICK, born 30 DEC 1888, Sumner, Kansas, (daughter of Judson Grant MCKISSICK and Mary Elizabeth IRWIN) employed as a Music Teacher, died 18 MAY 1963, Miami, Dade County, Florida, buried in Memorial Park, Enid, Garfield County, Oklahoma. Edward died about 1950, Enid, Garfield County, Oklahoma, buried in about 1950, Enid Cemetery, Garfield County, Oklahoma.
In 1910, Edward and Pearl lived in Hennessey, Kingfisher County, Oklahoma, on Oak Street--just a few homes away from his father, John. John lived on Walnut Street. By 1920, the family had moved to Bartlesville, Washington County, Oklahoma, east of Kingfisher. Edward had moved his family to Dode [Dade?] City, Florida by 1939. Edward died circa 1950. Wife, Pearl's death certificate (Dade County, Florida, 1963) states she was a widow at the time of her death.
As recalled by my Uncle Jim Rainey, Edward moved to Florida to start up and operate an orange grove, which unfortunately was not successful. "...the land was scraggly, sandy, and full of burrs...Ed's old mule had the deepest sway-back you could imagine, but John (referring to his brother and my father) and I loved riding around on the poor old plug." He also renounced a practice in "Spiritualism" on his deathbed in Enid, Oklahoma, where he is buried in Enid Cemetery.
