My great-great-great grandfather was Josiah P Cain b. 1818 TN and Married Nancy Upton also from TN.He moved to Missouri and his name was posted in newspaper as an emigrant headed to CA for the gold rush in 1850.Don't know if he ever went to CA. But he has a lot of history in MO Greene County. Do you have record of this CAIN?I don't know who is parents are or hers.We have been told by the generations of grandparents before him that we are decendants of Rain In The Face and also we are Cherokee.Please let me know if you can help me. Thanks so much!

I have only listed my parents, grandparents.. etc. they have had many children.The search started over 25 years ago and I'd like to find the connection to our ancestors of our Native American Indian heritage. I do this in honor of my grandparents who are no longer here....
