Notes for Catherine ?:
Information compiled from searches by Barbara Smith, Delores Cain O'Leary, and Howard Cain
Catherine is the earliest ancestor that we know about, to date.Her maiden name is unknown, and any information about her was discovered on the 1850 census.
Catherine Cain, (spelled Kane on the census form) was listed on the 1850 census, page 204, Western Division of the 5th ward of New York City-- October 15, 1950. Her name appears with the family of John Kane,her son and his family.It lists Catherine's age as 60 and her birth place as Ireland.Her son's birthplace is also listed as Ireland, as well as his first two children
Catherine is also listed on the 1860 census on page 52, 2nd district, 12th Ward of Brooklyn, New York, Kings City, June 16, 1860.After this she is not listed on the census with the rest of the family.This leads us to believe she may have died somewhere between the 1860 and 1870 census.
Children of Catherine ? and ? Kane are:
- +John Victor Kane, b. Abt. 1816, Ireland, d. April 18, 1893, Brooklyn, New York.
