I corresponded with Mildred Winston (Seab) Ezell (Born 1916) for many years-over 15 years ago- and she was on line as late as 98. So I have a lot on her Cain. (back then for you newcomers, we all shared pedigrees' SNAIL MAIL. A lot of her lines-since we all got home computers-and you can SEE what you have stretched out- became mine in later years. (Harris out of Greene Co was our original intent)
Now this much later-I suspect I connect with her on the Cain line.
I have Tobias Rogers-in Chatham on many deeds with the Cain family- and singned for his wife Mason to Relinquish Dower, etc.
Does Anyone know if Mason may have been connected? He married a 1774 to Mason. (He was in the Rev War, then buying property and witnessing by Feb 1774)
"Bias" Second marriage was 1799 to Sarah Hernton.
The first known son-is Tobias- and then mine Matilda "Pinky" 1780 in the 1850 census-Henderson Co Tn.
Tobias listed her and her husband Amos Aven in his will.
But since folks did not normally name the 1st son after themselves, I assume there were earlier ones.
