adjoining the lands of MONIZA KING and WILLIAM STEWART and bounded as follows; Begins at a stake near a spring in said KING's line, runs north 2 E. 18 poles to a stake in the center of JOEL JONES road, thence with said road N. 69 W. 26 poles to a stake and pointers, thence S. 2W. 25 poles to a stake said KING's line, thence S. 88 E. 24 poles to the beginning three acres 36 poles: Second tract in a deed from L. L. EDWARDS and wife to LEVI RAINES dated the 14th day of February 1888 as follows: land adjoins the land of LEVI RAINES and others and is bounded as follows: Beginning at a stake ELIAS ROGERS corner, runds north 59 poles and 4 links to a stake in the Apex road, thence S. 52 E. 50 poles 8 links to a stake in the Apex road, thence S. 12 poles 7 links to a stake, thence North 69 W. 26 poles 10 links to a stake, thence S. 3W. 25 1/2 poles to a stake thence 13 1/2 poles to first station containing 7 3/4 acres more or less.

Wherefore the plaintiffs ask that the said land be sold for partition, that a commissioner be appointed to make sale of the said land and to divide the proceeds after paying the costs and expenses of sale among those entitled as their interests appear and according to law for such allow & before they may be entitled accordingly.

(Levi Raines, b.1842, was the son of Allen Raines & Amelia Evans of Wake County, NC; he was married to Elizabeth Stewart, b. 1843, daughter of Margaret Stewart, on February 4, 1867. Recent DNA results indicate that Allen Raines was probably the son of Alley Rains who bore an illegitimate child as indicated in a 1792 Bastardy Bond in Wake County. Alley later married John Wyatt in 1802 Franklin County, NC. More info about the family can be found here: RAINES Family )
