Hurton Leache Raines

Obituary of Ninian Willett Leache, Fauquier County, Virginia.

Ninian Willett Leache was born on July 3, 1849, at Wood Park, near Warrenton, Fauquier County, Va., son of Dr. Jesse Leache and Jane Roberts Hurton, and entered into his eternal rest on June 18, 1920. He was a mere boy during the war, but enlisted as soon as possible in Company D, 43d Battalion of Virginia Cavalry, Mosby's command, and made a brave soldier.

In 1872 he married Miss Lavona Raines, of a fine family of Union, S. C., estimable, faithful wife and mother of her children. For the past thirty-eight years he had been holding a responsible position with the Radford Iron Company and was located in Pulaski County, Va. A man of the soundest integrity, upright square, honest, and honorable in all his dealings, he spoke ill of no one, hated a lie or anything false; a man without enemies. "one who feared God and eschewed evil." He has gone to his home in the "land of the blessed." He was a staunch Democrat, true to party, as to everything else. He was a member of the James Breathed Camp of Confederate Veterans. He was generous, conscientious, and a loyal citizen, a devoted, faithful husband and father. His influence will be felt for great good in his community, and he will be sadly missed.
