100 Years Ago Today

On March 28, 1913, one hundred years ago today, Pauline Katherine (Rains-Rowlands) Kernan (1913-1997), my step-great grandmother, was born in Trenton, Grundy Co., Missouri, along with her twin brother Paul Robert Rains (1913-1978). She was born the daughter of Rex Aden Rains (1885-1973) and Vesta Ferrell Keith (1884-1931).
