My William Cain was born Feb. 12, 1855 and died on July 27, 1951 in Kansas. He married Sarah Lane on Feb. 2, 1879. The couple had 6 children that I know of: Roxy Belle (died in childhood), Carrie, Dean, William, Christina and Charlene (my great grandmother) I have a couple of photos of William Cain and am curious about his heritage? Was he part indian? I sent for his death cert. but the information on it is incorrect they listed his wife's birthdate instead of his and his mother is not listed. I also have his obituary and funeral notice from the funeral and photos of his headstone. I also have a copy of Charlene's obituary. I am going to check online for more information about the family line I have been so desperately seeking. Thank you so much for your help and if you give me your email address I would be happy to send you a list of what I have and then send you copies of anything you want.

Yes Aaron Whitlow Lane was the father of Sarah Ann Lane. Sarah was born in 1866 in Worthington, Missouri. Her mother was America C. Hickman who was the second wife of Aaron, his first wife was Frances Dickerson. I have photos of William and his wife Sarah on a small web page I put up trying to locate some of this missing family it is at: http://www.proaxis.com/~shammagren/ I am not sure what all you would like to have but I will print out some information and copy some photos for you. Hopefully will have them out to you within a week or two. I will include my mailing address so you can send me the information you talked about. Thanks again for your help

Juanita, that is ok I guess in all my excitement I was able to follow along ok. It is exciting!!!! I thought the day was never going to come when I finally found this line. Did you check out the little website I have? There is a picture of him on it taken around 1925. I included that picture and one of him about a year before he died along with a copy of the newspaper clipping of the funeral notice in the packet to you. Don't torture your mail carrier to much waiting for it!!!!!

HAVEN'T BEEN TO YOUR WEBSITE. HAVEN'T DONE MUCH OF THAT AS WORK ON WORK COMPUTER AND NOT MUCH TIME FREE FOR ALL THE BROWSING I WOULD LIKE TO DO. NOW, AS YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR THOMAS, THERE IS SOME CONFUSION, WHICH NO ONE SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO UNTANGLE SO FAR. THE THOMAS THEY FIRST PUT CELIA AS BEING MARRIED TO SEEMS TO HAVE HAD A WIFE EUNICE HUBBARD AND FAMILY. THERE WAS A WILL THAT TURNED UP IN DELAWARE. SO YOU WILL SEE THAT DANIEL BORN IN 1868, IS GIVEN AS BEING MARRIED TO ELIZABETH HUTCHENS, AROUND DAVIE CO NORTH CAROLINA, IS CLAIMED TO BE THE SON OF BOTH EUNICE HUBBARD AND CELIA STEELMAN. NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYONE'S MIND WITHOUT DEFINITE PROOF. SO FAR, HAVE NOT SEEN A DEATH DATE FOR EUNICE HUBBARD, SO DO NOT KNOW IF SHE WAS ALIVE WHEN WILL WAS PROVED OR NOT. THIS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN THE RIGHT THOMAS CAIN. THERE WAS ONE IN ROWAN CO. NORTH CAROLINA CENSUS OF 1790 WITH THREE SMALL SONS, SO THERE WAS A THOMAS IN THE AREA FOR THAT PERIOD OF TIME. WHO HE BELONGED TO WE MAY NEVER KNOW. THE NAME SPELLINGS WERE NOT ALWAYS THE SAME BACK THEN. THERE WAS A MATHIAS CAINE IN ROWAN CO. AREA. (26 COUNTIES AND PART OF TENNESSEE WERE CARVED FROM THE ORIGINAL ROWAN CO.) WHEN DOING THE MATHIAS STEELMAN PEDIGREE, FATHER WAS PETER AND MOTHER GERTRUDE KEEN STEELMAN. FOLLOWING THE LINE DOWN FROM GERTRUDE OF GARTA FIND MATHIAS WITH SON MATHIAS WHO MARRIED HANNAH JACKSON THEN SUSANNE JACKSON THEN ANOTHER. MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT THOMAS WAS FROM THIS LINE AND MAYBE RELATED TO STEELMAN ON BOTH SIDES. CANNOT FIND ENOUGH DATES TO MAKE ANY HEADWAY AT THIS TIME. OH, WELL, JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW WHERE THE STUMBLING BLOCK IS AND MAYBE SOMEONE WILL FINALLY FIND THE MISSING LINKS. CHILDREN OF THOMAS AND CELIA HAVE BEEN GIVEN AS DANIEL 1868, BENJAMIN, 1770, JOHN, 1773, RUTH 1775, THEN GEORGE 1785 AND CATHERINE 1786. STILL A LOT OF DIGGING TO DO! GOOD TO HAVE HELP!!
