Hey folks,

I´m searching a picture of James Spencer Rains, who served as a Brigadier in the Missouri State Guard, for wiki. Problem is that in the seldom occasion a picture is provided it is this one

220px-GabrielJRains.jpg


but most sources, including the Library of Congress, list it as an early picture of Gabriel J. Rains.

So does by chance someone has a reliable picture of James Rains at hands?

Funny that when you enter the above photo in google image search, it comes back as James S. Rains. But then if you check the sources listed, you see that they are unreliable at best.

Using Tineye Image search, returns 7 results. 6 of the 7 list Gabriel James Rains. The one source id as James S. Rains is a blog.
