We are descended from from a Catherine Fain who was born in Va. & probably married a John Collins in Tennessee c.1780. I believe among her kids were John Fain Collins (b. c.1782) and Elijah William Collins (b. 1797). The latter is our ancestor.
First of all, are the Fain reunions still happening? Secondly, Are you familiar with these people or could you point me at someone who might be?
Also, does anyone have access to a book, "Sanctified Trail, the Diary of Eliza Rhea Anderson Fain, a Confederate Woman in East Tennessee",edited by John Fain?
By the way, everything I have on these folks is on Ancestry on the "Lily's Patrick Family Tree". Thanks.
