My ggg gf is Jesse Cain/Cane/Kain/Kane b 1789 PA, d Jan 1850, Pickaway Co. Ohio.Married Elizabeth _____ b 1789 PA.Had at least two children - Sarah b 1826 and Jesse Smith Cain b 1828-1831, both of PA, also resided in Pickaway Co, Ohio.Looking for any information on Jesse Cain's (b 1789) parents or birth county in PA to continue my search.I can't match Jesse up with any other Jesse's I've found on-line.
- I’m uncertain as to where in PA to look. - I cannot confirm any contemporaneous relatives in Ohio who might have migrated with Jesse and Elizabeth from PA. - However, Jesse Cain’s son, Jesse Smith Cain, served in the Civil War, and after his service, he moved to Morgan/Brown Co IN area, and married Margaret Hobbs on 20 Apr 1869.My hypothesis is that Jesse Smith Cain went to Morgan/Brown Co IN because some of his relatives were there.A Jesse W Kain (possibly the son of John Gates Cain?) married Harriet S VanSickle 2 weeks earlier, on 4 Apr 1869, also in Morgan County.I have not been able to show that these two Jesse’s were related, but it is very interesting.
If any of you Cain/Cane/Kain/Kane researchers can help guide me, I’d greatly appreciate it!
