Post subject:  Rains (or Raines, Reines)

My great-great grandmother was Matilda Harriet Rains (abt 1818-1894), she was born in PEI (I think) however she married Edward Snow Knight (1813-1883) in St. John's in 1836, one of the witnesses was Sarah Rains, who might possibly be a sister. The only other record of a Rains I've found is the marriage of Louisa Street Rains to Nathaniel Tynes in St. John's in 1844, where one of the witnesses was Joseph Rains. The newspaper announcement for this marriage describes the bride as the daughter of the late Mr. Rains of PEI. I believe Matilda and Louisa were also sisters. Does anyone have a Rains in their family or know anything about any of Matilda, Sarah, Louisa or Joseph Rains?
