I'm trying to find William STAINES. I don't know where he was born in the U.K. He was born in 1820 and immigrated to America. Probably in the late 1830's. He first stopped in New York and later went to Galveston Texas. He arrived there on Dec. 22, 1840. Staines served during the Civil War and was killed in Louisiana in 1864. I have photos of his widow and their son. I will gladly share what I have. Wm. Staines was my great,great grandfather.
