There is a N.B. Rains listed as a Private in Confederate Army 1861-1865 4th Virginia Infantry Company C (same person?)
I do not have any information beyond the birth date of my great grandfather Napoleon Bonaparte Rains.

Could you share your source for the possible adoption of "Katy O.". Also, my cousins and I have found that George Washington Rains, my great grandfather's mother was Rachel A. Sapp, not Rachel Hampton, easily thought. Napoleon and Rachel's sons were George W.,-+ Claude and James Robert.
