Gainer Family of Greene Co. MO

I am researching the Gainer and Dodson family of Greene Co. Mo. Ollie Dodson whose maiden name was Gainer was living in Greene Co., Springfield, MO, during the 1900's and I believe she died in 1936. Her father was Benjamin Franklin Gainer. Wonder if our families link together. If so, I have some neat info on Benjamin Franklin Gainer.

I believe Ollie's name was either Ollie Martha Gainer-Dodson or Martha Ollie Gainer-Dodson. She was born about 1850 in Greene Co. MO. Her mother's name was Elizabeth Jane (maiden name unknown). She had two brothers Lowrey E. Gainer and Charles A. Gainer. Lowrey was born in TN about 1846 and Charles A. born about 1848 in MO. Elizabeth Jane and Benjamin Franklin Gainer both were born about 1827-1829 in TN.
