                   THE FAMILIES OF HUGH AND JAMES CAIN


   At some time during the decade 1750-1760, there came to Orange County,
North Carolina, two brothers, HUGH CAINE and JAMES CAINE, together with
their families.  From whence they came has not been definitely
determined: there is some information available which indicates the
possibility that they were a part of that migration of peoples from
Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Valley of Virginia to North Carolina
during the 18th century.  There is a family tradition among the
descendants of HUGH CAINE, that seven brothers CAINE migrated from
Ireland to America, and that HUGH and JAMES were two of the seven.  Both
of these bits of information are indefinite and cannot be applied with
any certainty.

   An excerpt from "Biographical History of North Carolina", is as
follows: "WILLIAM CAIN"  - "The first American ancestor of the subject of
this sketch was WILLIAM CAIN, a gentleman of Irish descent who was for
many years a merchant in the City of Baltimore, and who died in 1734.
His son WILLIAM settled in Orange County, North Carolina, and became a
prominent citizen there".

   The WILLIAM CAIN who settled in Orange County, and here designated
WILLIAM CAIN I, was born in 1743, and died July 28, 1834, at the age of
91 years.  This indicates that WILLIAM I of Orange was born some nine
years after the death of WILLIAM of Baltimore.  Apparently there was at
least one and perhaps two generations between WILLIAM of Baltimore, and
WILLIAM I, of Orange.  This chronicler does not have any additional
information on WILLIAM CAIN of Baltimore, nor has he located any definite
information relating to the origin of the families of HUGH and JAMES
CAINE.

   Miss Mary F. Henderson of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, relates that
her grandmother - the widow of WILLIAM CAIN III, said always that the
CAINES came as family from Ireland - she thought from the neighborhood of
Baltimore in County Cork - this came to her from her father-in-law,
WILLIAM CAIN II.  County Cork is located in the south-southwestern part
of Ireland, and with Counties Clare, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and
Waterford, comprise the Munster or Southwestern Division.  Baltimore is
located on the sea coast, near Cape Clean or Cape Clear, some fifty or
sixty miles down the coast southwest from Cork Harbor and Queenstown.  In
1922 the name "Queenstown" was changed to Cobb.

   HUGH and JAMES were well educated, as judged by the standards of their
day, and apparently were men of some financial means.  They and their
sons and daughters became prominent citizens of the County and the State.

   HUGH'S plantation was located on both sides of Little River, a short
distance north of the point where this river flows into Eno, now (1963) a
part of Durham County.  After the death of HUGH CAINE, Jr., in 1826, the
plantation of HUGH CAINE, Sr., together with additional adjoining land
which had been acquired by HUGH, Jr., was divided among the legal heirs
of HUGH CAINE, Jr., all of which was later purchased by Duncan Cameron,
and became a part of Fairintosh Plantation.

   The Last Will and Testament of HUGH CAINE, Sr., dated June 21, 1781,
was probated in Orange County Court, November Term 1781.  The original of
this Will, now in the department of Archives and History at Raliegh,
discloses that when it was originally penned, the spelling of the name
was "CAIN", and that the spelling of the name was corrected by adding the
letter "e".  The Will was signed with a bold and well written signature
"HUGH CAINE".  Names of members of the CAINE family appear frequently in
the minutes of the Orange County Court of Common Pleas and Quarter
Sessions, as members of the Grand Jury, the Petit Jury, Road Supervisors,
Committees to lay off Roads, Settlements of Estates, etc.  At some places
in the early records the spelling of the name is "CAINE", and at other
places it is "CAIN".  The descendents of both HUGH and JAMES dropped the
"e" and used the spelling "CAIN".  This chronicler, a descendent of both
HUGH and JAMES, prefers the spelling "CAINE", but reluctantly must bow to
custom and usage of some two hundred years, and in that which follows,
the spelling of the name will be "CAIN".

   During these early years there were other citizens of the County of
the name "CAIN".  DANIEL CANE (KANE, KAIN, CAIN) was one of the Directors
and Trustees of the Town of Childsburgh, named in the 1759 Act of the
General Assembly which established that town.  ELISHA CAIN was a
prominent citizen of that part of Orange which later became Chatham
County.  The early records of that county show real estate transactions
in which several members of the CAIN family were participants.  This
chronicler does not know of any family tradition, and has not discovered
any records which indicate a direct family relationship of these members
of the CAIN family with HUGH and JAMES.  However, this cannot be accepted
as positive, and the several families may have been closely related.

   There is a Cane Creek in the southwestern part of present day Orange,
which flows in a southwesterly direction into Haw River.  In present day
Alamance County, there is a Cane Creek which flows in an easterly and
southeasterly direction into Haw River.  This chronicler does not know
the origin of this name, or when it was first applied, but does not think
that it has any connection with HUGH and JAMES CAINE.

   The identity of the wife of JAMES CAINE (brother of HUGH, Sr.) is not
available, but the following relates to his children:

WILLIAM CAIN - Who is here designated as WILLIAM CAIN I.
TIMOTHY CAIN - Died about August 1782, apparently unmarried.
JOHN CAIN - Died about May 1816, apparently unmarried.
MARY or MARGARET CAIN - Married John Woods
NANCY (ANNE) CAIN - Married Zebulon Veasey
SALLY (SARAH) CAIN - Married Jacob Allan.

   Very little information has been found in the records relating to
JAMES CAINE (brother of HUGH, Sr.)  During their early years in Orange
County, all members of these families appear to have been interested in
acquiring land: also, it appears that they must have had an aversion to
the recording of deeds - perhaps it was good business under the
circumstances - who knows.  In any event the lack of this information
makes it difficult to trace their activities, both business and personal.

   JOHN CAIN, son of JAMES, died in 1816.  HUGH CAIN, Jr., son of HUGH,
Sr., died in 1826.  Both of them died intestate, and apparently both were
bachelors.

   Considerable information relating to the families of HUGH CAINE, Sr.,
and his brother JAMES, has been obtained from the available records
relating to the distribution of the property of these two deceased
members of the families, among their legal heirs.

   The records show that in April 1782, JAMES CAIN conveyed to Thomas
Sutton a tract of 203 acres of land, located in Orange County, which he
had acquired from John May, but the date of this acquisition is not
available.  The identity of this JAMES CAIN is somewhat uncertain.  It is
thought that he was JAMES, the brother of HUGH, Sr., but it is possible
that he was JAMES, a son of HUGH, Sr.  The list of taxable property in
St. Mary's Precinct - for 1780, shows that Thomas Sutton listed 203 acres
of land, 2 horses, 6 cattle, and cash on hand of L24 (24 Pounds), all
with a total value of  L385 - 10 -0.  The deed from JAMES CAIN, mentioned
above, was dated in April 1782.  In those days it was the custom for the
seller of land to give the purchaser his "bond", binding himself to make
a deed to the purchaser when the full price had been paid.  It appears
probable that JAMES CAIN and Thomas Sutton had entered into the contract
prior to the 1780 tax date, but that Sutton did not complete payment of
the purchase price until 1782, although in the meantime he was occupying
the premises.

   In a real estate deed dated March 20, 1779, William Cleney and
Elizabeth his wife, conveyed to JAMES & JOHN CAIN his son, or the longest
liver, a tract of land containing 227 acres, located on both sides of the
Trading Path, adjoining the lands of Capt. Synott, J. Dunnagan and James
Bowie.  Information is not available as to the date of the death of JAMES
CAIN, but ownership of this tract of land remained in the Cain family,
and later became the location of the homeplace of WILLIAM CAIN I.

   JOHN CAIN, (son of JAMES), died in 1816, and his Orange County lands
were divided and allotted to his legal heirs, subject to certain
financial adjustments among the heirs, as follows:

1st Lot   The children of MARY Woods:

   The Eno Plantation, Forests Place           173      Acres
   Benjamin Forest's            ..             117 1/2    ..
   Widow Manning's              ..             222        ..
                                              -----------------512 1/2ac.
2nd Lot   WILLIAM CAIN, Sen'r.

   Britain's   Place                           957
   Sutton's and part of his father's           358

                                               ------          1548 ac.

3rd   Lot  Children of SALLY Allan                             1645 ac.

4th   Lot  Zebulon Veasey in right of his wife                 1952 1/2
                                                               ac.
                                                               ----------
                                                               -2225
                                                               acres

   The foregoing information relating to the distribution of the lands of
JOHN CAIN, deceased, has been obtained from a letter dated Hillsborough,
October 14th, 1816, written WILLIAM CAIN II, to Hugh Woods, Davidson
County, near Nashville, Tennessee, as contained in the J. L. Bailey
papers, Southern Historical Collection, U. N. C., at Chapel Hill.  Hugh
Woods was one of the children of MARY CAIN WOODS.  In some records this
daughter of JAMES CAINE is referred to as MARGARET Woods, although in the
above mentioned letter WILLIAM CAIN II referred to her as "Aunt MARY
Woods".

   It will be noted that the land allotted to WILLIAM CAIN I from the
estate of his brother JOHN, included "Suttons part of his father's - 358
acres".  "Suttons" was a 258 acre tract of land which JOHN CAIN had
purchased from Thomas Sutton, March 12, 1796,  and from the description
apparently is different from the 203 acres tract which JAMES CAIN
conveyed to Thomas Sutton in April 1782.  The remaining part of this item
allotted to WILLIAM CAIN I would be 100 acres, apparently "part of his
father's" being a part of the 227 acre tract of land which William Clenny
conveyed to JAMES and JOHN CAIN, March 20, 1779.

   The former Cain Homeplace, now known as "Hardscrabble" is located
within the boundaries of the 227 acre tract of land which JAMES & JOHN
CAIN purchased in 1779.  This chronicler does not know (the) origin of
this name.  Within his memory, locally, it has been called the "Dr. CAIN
Place" and the "Old Cain Place".  Local tradition indicates that Dr.
JAMES F. CAIN was a man with an "apt descriptive phrase", so it may (be)
that it was he who coined the name "Hardscrabble", as indicative of the
conditions which existed after the War.  Page (4a), which follows,
contains a rough sketch of the tract of land, and the deed description as
copied into the Orange County

Deed Book - William and Elizabeth Clenny to JAMES & JOHN CAIN, March 20,
1779.

   Apparently WILLIAM CAIN I acquired a part of the 227 acre tract of
land after the death of his brother JOHN in 1816, and apparently he owned
the entire tract at the time of his death in 1834, although a record has
not been located as to when and from whom he acquired the remainder of
this tract.  Perhaps it came to him after the death of his father, at
which time perhaps JOHN acquired the other part of the original tract.

   It has been the conviction of this chronicler that the homeplace of
WILLIAM CAIN I, was the property which later became the homeplace of his
daughter, Mrs.  MARY A. (POLLY) White, located approximately one-half
mile west of "Hardscrabble".  Also, that "Hardscrabble" had been the
homeplace of JOHN CAIN, and that a greater part of the "Mansion House"
which exists there today, was constructed by WILLIAM CAIN II, after the
death of his father in 1834.  A further review of the available
information indicates the probability that this conviction is erroneous.

   In the Last Will and Testament of WILLIAM CAIN I, dated December 14,
1827, and  probated in November 1834, he bequeathed to his daughter POLLY
Sutherland (later Mrs. MARY A. (POLLY) White, among other things, "the
use and occupation of my dwelling house and the houses appurtentant
thereto for three years after my death".  Also, he devised to this
daughter several tracts of land, including "the land which formerly
belonged to my brother TIMOTHY CAIN".  In this will, he also devised to
his son WILLIAM "the home plantation & buildings with their
appurtenances, being subject to the use and occupation of my daughter
POLLY Sutherland, as herein before mentioned".

               WILLIAM CLENNEY TO JAMES CAIN & SON JOHN
                     Deed dated March 20, 1779

   ___________________________________________________________________

                     (sketch of deed tract here)
   ___________________________________________________________________

William Cleney & wife Elizabeth to JAMES CAIN and son JOHN.  March 20,
1779 -Book 2, Page 51.  227 acres.  (the rest of description is largely
illegible)

   The foregoing is a rough sketch of the 227 acre tract of land which
JAMES CAIN and his son JOHN (purchased) from William and Elizabeth
Cleney, March 20, 1779, and which later became the site of the home of
WILLIAM CAIN I, known as "Hardscrabble" in later years.  See reverse side
for deed description as copied into Orange County Deed book no. 2, Page
51.

   The home place of POLLY White was located on land which had once
belonged to TIMOTHY CAIN, and acquired by WILLIAM CAIN I, after the death
of his brother TIMOTHY.  It is known that in later years WILLIAM CAIN II
was the owner of "Hardscrabble" and apparently it was his residence at
the time of his death in 1857.

   After the death of JOHN CAIN in 1816, WILLIAM CAIN II acquired by
purchase a substantial part of the lands which had belonged to JOHN, and
in particular the "Eno Plantation" lands which had been allotted to the
children of MARY Woods.  This plantation was located on both sides of Eno
River, some three or four miles south, southeast of "Hardscrabble".  The
location of the home of JOHN CAIN has not been definitely determined.  It
may have been on the original JAMES & JOHN CAIN tract, which appears
probable, or it may have been on the "Eno Plantation" tract.

   This chronicler does not have any definite information regarding the
construction of "Hardscrabble".  Connor's Documentary History of the
University of North Carolina - Volume I, page 296, contains a letter
dated Hillsboro, January 8, 1794, from Samuel Hopkins to John Hayward in
regard to the President's house at Chapel Hill, contains this paragraph:
"The House I built for Mr. CAIN, I think has not been more work than
this".  It appears probable that this reference is to the home of WILLIAM
CAIN I, at "Hardscrabble".  "Sans Souci" at Hillsborough, was built
sometime after 1812, by WILLIAM CAIN II, who was born in 1784.

   A list of the Taxable Persons in Orange County, with the amount of
their taxable property  for the year 1779, contains the following:

     WILLIAM CAINE, Esq.                 9106 - 10
     JAMES CAINE, Sen'r.                 3585 - 17
     TIMOTHY CAINE                       7780 - 6
     JOHN CAINE                           564 - 0

   This report, now in the files of Archives and History at Raleigh, does
not contain any other details relating to these taxpayers.

   The Orange County List of Taxable Property - St. Mary's Precinct -
1780, shows the following:

   The list of Taxable Persons for the Hillsborough District for 1780,
does not appear to contain any members of the Caine or Cain family.
Available information discloses that WILLIAM CAIN I at one time operated
a country store in St. Mary's Precinct, and that he owned or was
interested in a mercantile establishment located in the Town of
Hillsborough.  Also, he owned Hillsbourogh real estate, but so far as has
been determined he never maintained a residence within the town, or in
that vicinity.

   WILLIAM CAIN I, son of JAMES, was born in 1743, and died July 28,
1834, at the age of 91 years.  In various available records he is
referred to as WILLIAM CAIN, WILLIAM CAIN, Sr., and WILLIAM CAIN, the
elder.  WILLIAM CAIN married SARAH (SALLY) Dudley, May 28, 1783.  She was
a daughter of James Alston and his wife Christian Lillington Alston.  At
the time of this marriage SARAH was a widow of Thomas Dudley.  SARAH
ALSTON CAIN died May 8, 1823, at an advanced age. The children of WILLIAM
and SARAH ALSTON CAIN were:

 WILLIAM CAIN II        - Born April 2, 1784         - died Sep. 27, 1857
 JAMES ALSTON CAIN      - Born Feb. 28, 1789         - died Oct.  1, 1806
 SARAH CAIN             - Born          1791         - died Dec. 10, 1806
 MARY A. (POLLY) CAIN   - Born Feb. 14, 1793         - died May      1871
 CHARITY CAIN           - Born Feb. 16  1795         - died Mar. 15, 1873
 ANN LILLINGTON CAIN    - Born Mar. 17, 1797         - died
 MARTHA ANN CAIN        - Born Jun. 22, 1799         - died

   It will be noted that JAMES ALSTON CAIN and SARAH CAIN died before
reaching maturity.  MARTHA CAIN apparently did not marry.  In his Last
Will and Testament, dated December 14, 1827, WILLIAM CAIN I refers to "my
deceased daughter MARTHA", but the date of her death is not available.
In this Will he also refers to "my daughter PEGGY CAIN", but further
information is not available on this.

   WILLIAM CAIN II, married Mary Ruffin, a daughter of Sterling and Alice
Ruffin in 1819.  Additional information on his family will follow.
CHARITY CAIN became the wife of Willie F. Mangum, September 30, 1819, and
ANN LILLINGTON CAIN became the wife of Edward Davis, April 21, 1815.

   WILLIAM CAIN, son of WILLIAM CAIN I, in various places and records is
designated as WILLIAM CAIN, Sr.  Here he will be designated as WILLIAM
CAIN II, and his son WILLIAM CAIN III, and his grandson, WILLIAM CAIN IV.

   WILLIAM CAIN II, a son of WILLIAM CAIN I, and SARAH ALSTON CAIN, was
born April 2, 1784, and died September 27, 1857.  He married Mary Ruffin,
a daughter of Sterling and Alice Ruffin in 1819.  She was born September
26, 1795, and died June 24, 1837. *

    Their children were:

WILLIAM CAIN III         *Born June 1, 1822 - Died May 7, 1855
                          Married Sarah Jane Bailey, July 21, 1846.
JAMES FREDERICK CAIN      Born September 26, 1827 - Died August 15, 1904
                          Married Julia Elizabeth Tate, May 29, 1855.
THOMAS R. CAIN           *Born July 6, 1831 - Died August 31, 1882.

   In 1777, James Hogg purchased from the heirs of Col. Francis Corbin,
deceased, 263 acres of land, it being that part of the 663 acre grant to
William Churton (in trust for Francis Corbin), June 7, 1754, which said
Churton conveyed to Francis Corbin by deed dated September 9, 1754, as
recorded in Orange County Deed Book No. 2, Page 128.  This tract of land
was bounded on the west by the Hillsborough town line, and on the south
by Eno River.  A rough description would be:  Beginning at the River and
the foot of Boundary tract - now Cameron Street; thence north along with
Cameron Street to Commons Street - now North Street, the northeast corner
of the town, and continued north five chains to a corner; thence east 44
1/2 chains to a corner; thence south 38 1/2 chains to the River; thence
up the various courses of the River to the first station.  It thus
included the present day estates of Sans Souci, Montrose and Burnside,
together with various other properties.

   In a deed dated December 10, 1810, Mrs. Elizabeth Watters, a daughter
of William Hooper, the signer, conveyed to William Bond and David
Yarborough three adjoining tracts of land, containing a total of 206
acres for the consideration of $830.00 (OCRD 14-14).  On June 1, 1812,
William Bond conveyed to David Yarborough his undivided half interest of
this tract of land, for the consideration of $415.00.  In this deed the
total acreage is stated as 207 1/2, which may have been arrived at by
dividing the total purchase price of $830.00 by four.

   The following is a description of one of these three adjoining tracts
of land: Beginning at a stake, the northwest corner of a tract of land
formerly belonging to James Hogg, deceased, (the 263 acre tract - part of
the original 1754 grant to William Churton, in trust for Francis Corbin)
- this is chronicler's note, not in deed), joining the town of
Hillsborough, running thence south 5 chains to a white oak, the north
east corner of the town land; thence with the same source continued along
the town line eleven chains to a stake; thence east 19 chains to a stake;
thence north 16 chains to a stake; thence west 19 chains to the
beginning, containing by estimation 30 acres, more or less, which two
last tracts of land were by deed bearing date May 2, 1784, conveyed by
James Hogg to William Hooper, and by William Hooper in his Last Will and
Testament, duly proved & recorded, devised & bequeathed unto Elizabeth
Watters.

   The fact that this land was devised & bequeathed to his daughter
Elizabeth by William Hooper, can be confirmed from his Last Will and
Testament, the original of which is is now on file in the Orange County
records at the Department of Archives and History at Raliegh.

   According to this chronicler's computations, the 30 acre tract of land
described above includes the location of "Sans Souci".

   The records do not show a conveyance of the 206 (207 1/2) acres of
land, or any part of it by David Yarborough, which he and William Bond
purchased from Mrs. Elizabeth Watters, December 10, 1810, and to which he
acquired full title June 1, 1812.  Also, the records do not show when or
from whom WILLIAM CAIN II acquired the property on which "Sans Souci" is
located, except that which follows, representing quotations from the Last
Will and Testament of WILLIAM CAIN II, dated April 10, 1856, and admitted
to probate November 1857.

   "The lands in Orange on which I reside, containing about nineteen
hundred and fifty (1950) acres & all my lots, houses & real estates in
Hillsborough, except that held by Mr. Kirkland & myself except those
hereinafter devised to Dr. Pride Jones, I give  & devise to my son JAMES
F. CAIN in fee simple, and I also give him & his heirs all of my right,
legal and equitable in & to a certain house & grounds on the Oxford road,
east of Hillsborough, formerly belonging to the late P. H. Mangum, for
the purchase of which I lately contracted with Mr. Carrard, and also
twenty-one acres of land out of my tract adjoining, to be laid off so as
to include the pieces I purchased form Mr. Cameron & Dr. Long, containing
about thirteen acres & to include also eight acres more by a line running
from the corner of the said pieces next to the house in which I formerly
lived, to the Oxford road."

   "I furthermore give to my son-in-law, Pride Jones, in fee simple, if
he be living at my death & if he be then dead, to his wife MARTHA ANN in
his stead, the tract of land near Hillsborough, which I purchased from
David Yarborough & Miss Burke, containing about six hundred and thirty
four acres, except thereout the eight acres thereof, before given to my
son JAMES, and also six town lots in Hillsborough lying between the said
land & Mrs. Hill's and I order that he or she, as the case may be, shall
be charged in respect of the said land in this clause with the sum of
nine thousand dollars in the division of my estate."

   The "nineteen hundred and fifty acres (1950)" of land in Orange  "on
which I reside" is thought to represent "Hardscrabble" and surrounding
lands, and the "house in which I formerly lived" is thought to be "Sans
Souci".  The wife of WILLIAM CAIN II had died some nineteen years before
this will was written, and apparently  Mr. CAIN had removed his place of
residence from "Sans Souci" to "Hardscrabble".  it is known that Dr.
JAMES F. CAIN made his home at "Hardscrabble" for a number of years after
the War and perhaps during the War.  Apparently he moved his residence to
Durham, North Carolina, during the latter part of the 19th Century, or
early part of the 20th Century, where he died in 1904.

   The records show that WILLIAM CAIN, Jr. (II) purchased Hillsborough
town lots Nos. 177, 205 and 206 from the town Commissioners October 15,
1821.  Lot 177 and 205 adjoin, and are bounded on the east by Cameron
Street.  Lot 177 is bounded on the south by Orange Street, and Lot 205 is
bounded on the north by North street.  These two lots are directly across
Cameron Street from the 30 acre tract of land which Mrs. Elizabeth
Watters conveyed to David Yarborough and William Bond, December 10, 1810.
Lot 206 is bounded on the east by Lot 205, and on the north by North
street.  No attempt has been made to determine when WILLIAM CAIN II
acquired the three additional lots, which apparently adjoin the three
described above, mentioned in his Will.  Apparently the three described
above, represent three of the "six town lots in Hillsborough, lying
between the said land and Mrs. Hill's".

   It would appear doubtful that there were any extensive buildings
located on the three tracts of land containing 206 acres at the time Mrs.
Elizabeth Watters sold them to David Yarborough and William Bond,
December 10, 1810, at $4.00 per acre.  Also, it would appear that WILLIAM
CAIN II purchased this land from David Yarborough sometime after June 1,
1812.

   It is the conclusion of this chronicler that "Sans Souci" was
constructed by WILLIAM CAIN II, sometime after June 1, 1812, probably
about the time of his marriage to MARY Ruffin in 1819.

   MARY A. (POLLY) White built a fine "Mansion House" on the "TIMOTHY
CAIN land" which her father devised to her.  The date of the construction
of this house is unknown, but it appears probable that it was constructed
after the death of her father in 1834, and before her second marriage to
Dr. Willie N.  White, about December 1839.  Apparently she was a woman of
unusual business ability, and until the time of the War was considered a
wealthy person, and she was prominent citizen of the St. Mary's
community.  She died in 1871, at the age of 78 years. Apparently the
changed conditions resulting from the effects of the War, together with
advanced age, were more than her business acumen could master.

   About 1836, MARY A White purchased the "Eno Plantation" from her
brother, WILLIAM CAIN II.  The Last Will and Testament of WILLIAM CAIN
II, dated April 10, 1856, contains the following:  "About twenty years
ago I sold my sister MARY, my plantation on Eno & she has had possession
of it ever since, but I have never executed a deed of conveyance to her.
I therefore devise the same to her, my said sister in fee simple".
Apparently this was the "Eno Plantation" and adjoining lands which
WILLIAM CAIN II had acquired about 1816 or 1817 from the heirs of his
uncle, JOHN CAIN, deceased.

   The Last Will and Testament of MARY A. White, dated May 30, 1870, was
probated in Orange County Probate Court, August 17, 1871.  In this Will
she provided that the "Cole tract" of land, containing about 300 acres,
adjoining her homestead tract, and the "Green tract" containing 120
acres, adjoining her "Eno Plantation" should be sold after her death to
provide a fund for the payment of her debts.  Also, in this Will, among
other things, she devised to her niece, Mary Sutherland Mangum, her
Homestead tract together with all buildings, livestock, equipment, etc.,
containing about 1400 acres of land.  Also, she devised to her nephew,
JAMES F. CAIN, "My Eno tract of land and plantation which I purchased of
my brother, the late WILLIAM CAIN, estimated to contain twelve hundred
acres, more or less" together with all buildings, livestock, equipment,
etc.

   The Orange County records show that MARY A. White executed a "deed of
gift" to JAMES F. CAIN, dated July 6, 1869, for 1420 acres of land, lying
on both sides of Eno River, adjoining the lands of Benton Ray, H. Sims,
the divisors of D. Cameron (Fairintosh), and others.  This deed appears
to cover conveyance of MARY A. White's "Eno Plantation" which she devised
to her nephew JAMES F. CAIN in her Will.

   It appears that conditions arose after the Will of MARY A. White was
signed, which made it impossible to carry out the provisions of her Will
as she had planned.  John W. Graham became the administrator of her
estate, with the Will annexed.  The proceeds from the sale of the "Cole
tract" and the personal property were not sufficient to pay the debts of
the deceased, and the Administrator was appointed Commissioner to sell
other parts of the lands of the Estate.

   The "Homestead Tract" of the MARY A. White lands was surveyed and
divided into thirteen separate lots, and sold by the Commissioner on
October 11, 1873.  JAMES F. CAIN became the purchaser of several lots,
and in some instances he assigned his bids to other persons.  Before the
transactions were completed, JAMES F. CAIN was declared a Bankrupt, and
John W. Graham was appointed Assignee in Bankruptcy for the properties of
the Bankrupt.

   No attempt has been made to determine the details of the final outcome
of the settlements of the Estate of MARY A. White, but it appears
doubtful that Mary Sutherland Mangum, one of the devisees, received very
much of value in the final accounting.  Miss Martha P. Mangum, another
niece of MARY A.  White, purchased the "Mansion House" together with 200
acres of land adjoining.  In October 1879, she sold this property and it
passed from the hands of the CAIN descendants.  During the years which
followed there were several different owners.  The "Old Mansion House"
deteriorated from lack of proper maintenance, and during the 1930s of
1940s it was torn down.  The land on which this "Mansion" was located in
now (1964), owned by Alton Caine Browning.  (note in pencil: "where is
it?  Next to Lockhill)

   In a deed dated March 23, 1878, John W. Graham, Assignee in
Bankruptcy, conveyed to David C. Parks, the JAMES F. CAIN homeplace,
containing about 1675 acres of land - consideration $3685.00.  It is
known that Dr. JAMES F. CAIN continued to reside at the Cain Ancestral
Homeplace until he removed to Durham.  It is assumed that he made
arrangements to re-acquire the property, or at least a part of it during
the years which followed completion of the bankruptcy proceedings, but no
attempt has been made to review the transactions that may have been
involved.

   As previously noted, JAMES CAINE (brother of HUGH, Sr), had three
daughters: also, that MARY (or MARGARET) married John Wood or Woods; that
SARAH married Jacob Allan, and that NANCY married Zebulon Veasey.

   John Woods and his wife MARY (or MARGARET) CAIN Woods were the parents
of seven children.  Apparently MARY (or MARGARET) CAIN Woods died prior
to the time of the death of her brother JOHN CAIN in March 1816.  No
further information has been located on MARY or her husband John.  The
following is information located relating to their children.

       Timothy C. Woods, in May 1818 was a resident of Jackson County,
       Georgia.

       John Woods, in November 1817, was a resident of Orange County,
       North Carolina.

       Hugh Woods, in February 1817, was a resident of Davidson County,
       Tennessee.


   The foregoing information has been obtained from real estate
conveyances executed by Timothy, John and Hugh Woods, covering their
interests in the lands of JOHN CAIN, deceased.  Further information on
Timothy C. Woods, and John Woods has not been located.  A review of
records of Davidson County, Tennessee, about 1955 or 1956, discloses a
record of a Hugh Woods who died there about March 1864.  An inventory of
personal property, including notes, cash, etc., shows a total value of
$735.15.  A sale of household furniture, etc., shows that the purchasers
were: John Woods and Harriet Hall.  It seems probable that these were
children of the deceased.  There may have been others, but if so, records
relating to them were not located.  It is quite possible that this Hugh
Woods was the son of John and MARY CAIN WOODS, who was residing in
Davidson County, Tennessee, in February 1817, but definite information on
this has not been determined.

   Nancy Woods, married Young Dortch August 28, 1799.  Their plantation
   was located just off the present day St. Mary's Road, approximately
   two miles west of St. Mary's Chapel.  She died about August 1860.

   MARY Woods died about November 1817, unmarried.

   Elizabeth Woods, died about August 1838, unmarried.  The sale of her
   one-seventh part of the three lots of land from the estate of JOHN
   CAIN, deceased, allotted to the children of John and MARY CAIN Woods,
   was advertised in the Hillsborough Recorder November 1, 1820, by James
   Webb, clerk and master in Equity, to take place on the 28th of that
   month.

   Available evidence indicates that there were seven children, and the
foregoing accounts for six.  This chronicler has not located any
information on the seventh child of John Woods and his wife, MARY CAIN
Woods.

   The Children of Young Dortch and his wife Nancy Woods Dortch were:

David Dortch         - who married Sarah Ryals       January 17, 1824
Mary (Polly) Dortch  - who married Alves Nichols     February 13,1830
John Y.  Dortch      - who married Ruth Carrington   December 30, 1830
 ..      ..          - who married Sarah B. Bacon    August 3, 1843
Emeline Dortch       - who married David Lockhart    December 26, 1831
Lucy Dortch          - who married George Walker     October 31, 1837

   The plantation of Jacob Allan and his wife SARAH (SALLY) CAIN Allan,
was located on both sides of Eno River, some three or four miles up the
river, or west of JOHN CAIN'S Eno Quarter Plantation.  Jacob Allan, Sr.,
died about November 1806.  Apparently SARAH died before her husband, for
he did not mention her in his Will and Testament.  Their Children were:

Jacob Allan - his father's will: "All my lands on south side of Eno
              River."
William Allan - his father's will "All my lands on north side of Eno
                River."
Scynthia Allan - married John Scarlett, January 16, 1790
                  (son of Stephen and Sally Flintham Scarlett)
Nancy Allan - married James Latta, August 24, 1790
Sally Allan - married HUGH CAIN, December 7, 1809
                  (son of JAMES and grandson of HUGH, Sr.)
Hannah Allan - married James Scarlett, November 17, 1809.
                (son of Stephen and Sally Flintham Scarlett.)
Betsy Allan - Apparently never married.

   Information relating to Jacob Allan, Jr., and William Allan appears to
be rather indefinite, and no attempt has been made to trace them.

   In an Indenture dated August 17, 1816, in consideration of $2500.00,
Zebulon Veasey and his wife NANCY Veasey, of Hancock Co., Georgia,
conveyed to WILLIAM CAIN II, all of their right, title and interest in
and to property of JOHN CAIN, deceased.  This indenture, as recorded,
discloses that it was signed by Zebulon Veasey, and by NANCY (X) Veasey.
One of the witnesses was ISAAC CAIN.  The identity of this witness and
his relation to other members of the Cain family here under discussion,
has not been determined.  This chronicler has not located any further
information on Zebulon and NANCY Veasey, or their descendants.

   A memorandum of family history written about 1935, by the late Hugh
Scarlett, contains the following:

   "William Allan left Orange County and went to Tennessee; he was never
married.  He went about forty years before the Civil War, and he became
very wealthy.  His entire estate was sold and divided among his kin here
in Orange County.  It was sold before the war, however, it was after the
surrender before my father received his; he received $3000.00 as his
part.

   Hugh Scarlett's grandmother, Hannah, the wife of James Scarlett, was a
daughter of Jacob Allan and his wife SALLY CAIN Allan.  In a letter from
Tennessee, dated January 8, 1837, John Holden, Jr., reported:  "I have
also heard of Wm. Allan, but have not seen him.  He lives in Haywood".
(Haywood County, Tennessee.)

   The following information relating to the family of HUGH CAINE, Sr.,
has been obtained from a List of Taxable Persons in the County of Orange,
now in the files of Archives and History at Raliegh, with the amounts of
their taxable property for the year 1779.

   The list of Taxable Property for 1780-1781 - St. Mary's Precinct,
contains the following:

The valuation of the property of WILLIAM CAINE, Son to HUGH, for the year
1779, appears to be out of line with the valuation of his property for
1780-1781.  However, the above valuations are as shown by the records.
The 1779 List does not contain any details.

   The Last Will and Testament of HUGH CAINE, Sr., dated June 21, 1781,
was probated at November Court, 1781.  In this Will he devised his
plantation on which he then resided to three of his sons, HUGH, JAMES and
ALLAN, to be equally divided among them.  He bequeathed various items of
personal property to these three sons, and also to: his son WILLIAM
CAINE, a mare, cow, calf, several sheep; to his daughter ANN CAINE,
various items of personal property including "all her mother's & her
sister's wearing apparel".  To "my cousin Elizabeth McKinley, one black
heifer.  Also, he bequeathed various items of personal property to JOHN
CAINE, JAMES CAINE, ANN CAINE, FANNY & MARGARET CAINE (twins), all
children of his son WILLIAM.

   In this Will HUGH refers to his grandchildren, children of his son
WILLIAM, as his nieces and nephews.  According to a present day
dictionary these meanings of these words are now obsolete.  The term
"cousin" has several meanings, some of which are now obsolete, so there
may be some question as to the exact blood relationship, if any, between
HUGH CAINE, Sr., and Elizabeth McKinley.  She married JAMES CAIN, a son
of HUGH CAINE, Sr., December 21, 1781.  Family tradition says that
Elizabeth McKinley was a niece of John Kelly, who as a young man came to
Orange County during the 1750s - 1760s, and became a prominent citizen of
St. Mary's Community.  A letter found among his papers, dated Iredell
County, North Carolina, December 14, 1795, addressed to "Dear Brother &
Sister", and signed "Solomon & Mary Kelly", contains the following:
"Remember our love to JAMES CAIN and his wife and children", and also the
following:  "Let BETSY CAIN know that Rodger and her brothers and sister
is all in good health:  this Miles that is married to Nelly is one that
Quila Thompson raised."

   The children of HUGH CAINE, Sr., were:  HUGH, Jr., JACOB, ALLAN, ANN,
JOHN, WILLIAM, MARGARET, and JAMES.  The dates of the births of the
several children have not been determined.  In that which follows they
will be considered in the above order, which is without reference to the
order of their ages.

   The identity of the wife of HUGH CAINE, Sr. has not been determined,
and the following is speculation, only.  Two of the sons of HUGH, Sr.
were ALLAN and JACOB.  Jacob Allan married SARAH CAINE, a daughter of
JAMES CAINE, and a niece of HUGH CAINE, Sr., This indicates the
possibility of a relationship between the Caine and Allan families, and
it may be that the wife of HUGH CAINE, Sr., was an Allan, and related to
Jacob Allan.

   As previously noted, HUGH CAINE, Sr., devised his plantation to his
sons HUGH, JAMES, and ALLAN.  Apparently JAMES sold his interest in this
plantation to his brother HUGH, although a record of such a transaction
has not been located.  In the years which followed, HUGH, Jr., acquired
additional adjoining land, although details of such transactions have not
been located.  Apparently HUGH, Jr., and his brother ALLAN continued to
make their homes on the old plantation during the remainder of their
lives.

   At Orange County Court, November 1826, administration of the estate of
HUGH CAIN, deceased, was granted to ARCHIBALD CAIN and Samuel Yarborough,
who entered into bond with JAMES CAIN and ALLAN CAIN, securities, in the
sum of $8000.00.  JAMES CAIN and ALLAN CAIN were brothers of HUGH CAIN,
Jr., and ARCHIBALD CAIN was a son of JAMES CAIN and a grandson of HUGH
CAINE, Sr.


   That which follows on Page 14A, is a copy of a plat taken from the
records of the Orange County Register of Deeds office, showing a division
of the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., and ALLAN CAIN, in August 1827.

   HUGH CAIN, Jr., died intestate, and apparently did not leave any wife
or children.  The lands of HUGH, Jr. and his brother  were surveyed April
24, 1827, and the division report of the Commissioners was executed
August 28, 1827.  Lot No. 7, as shown on the plat was not included in the
Division, this being one-third of the original tract - the plantation of
HUGH CAINE, Sr., - held by HUGH CAIN, Jr., and ALLAN CAIN as Tenants in
common.   As noted on the plat the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., were divided
among his brothers JAMES and ALLAN, and the heirs of his brothers JACOB,
JOHN, and WILLIAM, and his sister MARGARET.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
                   (sketch of Orange County Lands here.  14A)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

   The valuation of the several lots as determined by the Commissioners
were: Lot No. 1, $360; Lot No. 2, $480; Lot No. 3, $680; Lot No. 4, $431,
Lot No. 5, $855: Lot No. 6, $855; and Lot No. 7, $1045.  The
Commissioners report provided for financial adjustments among the several
legatees in order to equalize the value of the land that each heir
received.  This resulted in difficulties later, including court actions
by the heirs who were to receive, against the heirs who were required to
pay.  However, these court actions are the source of some additional
information relating to the various descendants of HUGH CAINE, Sr.

   An analysis of the Commissioners Report indicates that Lots Nos. 5, 6
and 7 as shown on the Division Plat, containing a total of approximately
306 acres, valued at $9.00 per acre - $2,775.00, represented the original
home plantation of HUGH CAINE Sr.  A record has not been located showing
when or from whom HUGH CAINE, Sr., acquired this 306 acres of land.  It
will be noted that this plantation lay on the easterly side of Little
River.  Apparently the four lots lying on the westerly side of Little
River, containing a total of 483 acres, represents land which HUGH CAIN,
Jr., had acquired, although records of such transactions have not been
located.

   It will be noted from the Plat that the 483 acre HUGH CAIN, Jr. tract
is bounded on the north by the Cabbin Branch.  A present day road map
indicates that Cabbin Branch flows into Little River approximately one
and one-half miles north of the point where Little River flows into Eno
River, where these two rivers become the Neuse.

   In a deed dated June 7, 1770, (OCDB 3-327), Hugh Wood and wife of
Orange County, conveyed to Richard Lewis of Granville County, a tract of
land on the north side of Enoe and Little Rivers - Beginning at an elm on
a gut near the bank of Enoe; thence running north 20 degrees west 200
poles to a corner - three red oaks; thence by the dividing line between
the sd. Hugh Woods and HUGH CAIN, Sr. 41 or 43 degrees west 250 poles to
two hicories & beach on the bank of little River;  thence down the said
river according to it's meanders to the mouth thereof; thence down Enoe
River according to its meanders to the first station, containing 314
acres, more or less.

   The call in above deed:  Beginning at three red oaks:  "thence by the
dividing line between the sd. Hugh Woods & HUGH CAIN, Sr. 41 or 43
degrees west 250 poles to two hicories & beach on the bank of Little
River"  can be traced on the Division Plat - the easterly line of Tract
No. 7, as follows: Beginning at a Red Oak;  thence south 42 degrees west
42.75 chains (171 poles) to a hickory on the bank of Little River.  This
chronicler does not have any explanation for the difference in the
distances - 250 poles and 171 poles - except almost sixty years in time,
and perhaps the "R.O." corner on the plat was not the same as the "three
red oaks" corner used in the 1770 deed.

   The foregoing indicates that the easterly side of the HUGH CAINE, Sr.,
plantation was approximately one-half mile distant from Eno River, and
that HUGH CAINE, Sr., owned this plantation as early as June 1770.  The
Orange County Registration of Deeds Record now in the file of Archives
and History at Raleigh, shows that at November 1767 Court a deed was
proved - Hugh Woods to HUGH CAIN for 60 acres of land.  However, further
information on this transaction is not available.

   The northeast corner of Lot No. 5, as shown on the plat, is a stake on
the Little River corner of Duncan Cameron, Esq.  During the years which
followed the death of HUGH CAIN, Jr., from time to time Duncan Cameron
purchased the several lots of land shown on the Division Plat, and all of
the land of HUGH CAIN, Jr., and his brother ALLAN became a part of
Fairntosh Plantation.

   The Last Will and Testament of JACOB X (his mark) CAIN, son of HUGH
CAINE, Sr., dated August 6, 1779, was probated at Orange County Court for
August 1779.  Apparently JACOB did not own any real estate.  He
bequeathed one-third of all of his property, except his wearing apparel,
to his wife JOANNA CAIN, and the remaining two-thirds of his property to
the child with which his wife was then pregnant.  If the child should be
a boy, it was his expressed desire that his clothes should be reserved
for such son; otherwise, his wearing apparel to be divided among his
brothers.  If such child should not live, then one-half of the property
bequeathed to such child to go to his wife JOANNA and the remainder to be
divided among his brothers.  Apparently the child lived and became heir
to a one-sixth interest in the property of HUGH CAIN, Jr.

   The Commissioners' division of the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., provided
that WILLIAM CAIN'S heirs should pay $85.667 to JACOB CAIN'S heirs, and
that ALLAN CAIN should pay $56.75 to JACOB CAIN'S heirs in order to
produce a total value to JACOB'S heirs of $616.4167.

   At February Court 1827, in the case of SALLY CAIN vs. HUGH CAIN'S
Administrators, it was ordered that ALEXANDER CAIN security for the
prosecution of this suit be discharged and that Benton Clark be taken
instead.  At August Court 1827, SALLY CAIN was granted a judgement
against HUGH CAIN'S Administrators in the amount of $400.00, and costs.
- Appeal prayed and granted.  This chronicler does not know the identity
of this SALLY CAIN or of ALEXANDER CAIN, and has not located any further
information regarding this case.  It may be that SALLY CAIN and ALEXANDER
CAIN were grandchildren of JACOB CAIN, and that this suit involved the
claim of JACOB'S heirs to a share of the personal estate of HUGH CAIN,
Jr., deceased.  Perhaps, also, the settlement of this suit was the basis
for allowing a claim of JACOB CAIN'S heirs to a one-sixth share of the
real estate of HUGH CAIN, Jr.

   At November Court 1830, JAMES CAIN and JACOB CAIN'S heirs, to the use
of Wm.  Hogan, entered suit against the heirs of WILLIAM CAIN, deceased.
This WILLIAM CAIN, deceased, was a brother of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased.
At May Court 1831, JAMES CAIN was granted a judgement against WILLIAM
CAIN'S heirs for the sum of $174.167.  Also, JACOB CAIN'S heirs, to the
use of Wm. Hogan was granted a judgement against WILLIAM CAIN'S heirs for
the sum of $85.667.  In each instance the amounts of the awards to bear
interest from August 24, 1827.  The amounts of these judgements represent
the amounts awarded to JAMES CAIN and JACOB CAIN'S heirs, respectively,
the Commissioners who divided and evaluated the lands of HUGH CAIN,
deceased, for the purpose of equalizing the values of the several lots.

   Available information discloses that ALLAN CAIN, brother of HUGH CAIN,
Jr., died in March 1831.  A part of the personal property of this
deceased was sold at auction, June 24, 1831.

   This chronicler has not located any information which will serve
definitely, to identify "JACOB CAIN'S Heirs" or the "Heirs of JACOB
CAIN'S Heirs", and does not know the basis of the interest of Wm. Hogan
in the property of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased.  These items were in process
of settlement more than fifty years after the death of JACOB CAIN, during
which time, it is probable that many things occurred that might have had
a bearing on this situation.

   JOANNA CAIN, widow of JACOB CAIN, married Thomas Holloway, October 5,
1782.  This was the second marriage for Thomas.  The date of JOANNA'S
death is unknown, but this Thomas Holloway married his second (or third)
wife August 25, 1808, and it is assumed that JOANNA had died prior to
that date.  If JOANNA had any children from her second marriage who
survived her, did they have any claim to any part of the estate of HUGH
CAIN, Jr.?  This chronicler doesn't know.

   As previously noted, ALLAN CAIN, brother of HUGH CAIN, Jr., died about
March 1831.  It appears that he and his brother HUGH continued to own the
plantation of their father, HUGH CAINE, Sr., as tenants in common until
after the death of HUGH CAIN, Jr., about November 1826.  When the
commissioners divided the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., Lot No. 7, containing
approximately 116 acres, was allotted to ALLAN, representing his share of
the "tenants in common" land, and Lot No. 6, containing 95.3 acres was
allotted to ALLAN as his share of the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased.
In order to equalize values the commissioners said that ALLAN CAIN should
pay: to MARGARET CAIN Few's heirs $250.5834; to JACOB CAIN'S heirs
$50.75; to JAMES CAIN $21.25; to JOHN CAIN'S heirs $21.25, and to WILLIAM
CAIN'S heirs $21.25.

   At August Court 1832, actions were instituted by JAMES CAIN, the heirs
of JOHN CAIN, deceased, the heirs of MARGARET CAIN Few, deceased, and the
heirs of JACOB CAIN'S heirs, against the heirs of ALLAN CAIN, deceased
for the collection of the amounts awarded to them by the commissioners
who had divided and evaluated the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased.  The
Court Minutes relating to the action by the "Heirs of JACOB CAIN'S
heirs", contain the following: "WILLIAM CAIN appointed Guardian Pendente
Lite."  This indicates that the claim of JACOB CAIN was then prosecuted
for the benefit of some heir who was then under the age of twenty-one
years.

   The Orange County marriage records show that on February 18, 1792,
Walter Alves executed a marriage bond for ALLAN CAIN to marry Mary
Hester; on October 24, 1795, David Sloan executed a marriage bond for
ALLAN CAIN to marry Susanna Carpenter; and on October 29, 1798, John
Scarlette executed a marriage bond for ALLAN CAIN to marry Elizabeth
Scarlett.  The available records for those years represent the executed
marriage bonds, but do not in all cases show when the actual marriage
ceremony was performed.  This chronicler has not located any information
relating to an ALLAN CAIN in Orange County who was of marriageable age
during the 1790s, other than ALLAN CAIN, son of HUGH, Sr, and brother of
HUGH, Jr.  Therefore, it appears that Mary and Susanna, apparently
ALLAN'S first and second wives, respectively, must have died not long
after marriage.  It is possible that these wives may have been the
mothers of some of ALLAN'S children, but definite information on this is
not available.

   Elizabeth Scarlett was a daughter of Stephen Scarlett and his wife
Sarah Flintham Scarlett.  The John Scarlett who executed the marriage
bond, probably was an older brother of Elizabeth, the one who had married
Scynthia Allan, January 16, 1790.  The exact age of Elizabeth Scarlett at
the time of her marriage to ALLAN CAIN has not been definitely
determined, but available information indicates that she was
approximately nineteen or twenty years of age.

   At Orange County Court September 1832, the heirs of ALLAN CAIN made
petition for the sale of his lands in order that his debts might be paid
and the balance distributed to his heirs.  This petition was approved by
the Court, and the land was sold November 26, 1832 for a total of
$2100.00.  Lots No. 6 and 7 of the Division Plat of the lands of HUGH
CAIN, Jr., were sold to Duncan Cameron for a total of $1900.00.  Another
small tract on Mountain Creek was sold to Jesse Parker for $200.00.




   The heirs of ALLAN CAIN, deceased, as disclosed by the petition were:

ELIZABETH CAIN        Widow
Nancy Latta           Daughter, and wife of Thomas Latta, Jr.
WILLIAM CAIN          Son
Sarah McFarland       Daughter, and wife of Jesse McFarland
Mary Scarlett         Daughter, and wife of Allan Scarlett
ANN CAIN              Daughter, an infant under legal age.
ELIZABETH CAIN        Daughter, an infant under legal age.
MARIA CAIN            Daughter, an infant under legal age.

   ANNE CAIN married Elbert Dossett September 11, 1832.  James Trice was
appointed Guardian to ELIZABETH CAIN and MARIA CAIN.  MARIA CAIN married
Martin Jackson, November 19, 1841.

   ELIZABETH CAIN, the widow, was entitled to dower rights in Lots Nos. 6
and 7 of the HUGH CAIN, Jr., land Division Plat.  She assented to the
sale of all of the real estate and agreed to accept an absolute payment
in lieu of her dower rights in the real estate.

   In his report filed at September 1832 Term of Court, In Equity, the
Clerk and Master stated that the widow, ELIZABETH CAIN, was about fifty
years of age and in good health.  He determined her life expectancy to be
seventeen years, and awarded her the sum of $440.00, which she ought to
receive absolutely, from the proceeds of the sale of the lands of her
late husband, ALLAN CAIN, in lieu of her dower in such lands.

   There is a grave in St. Mary's Cemetery with a tombstone which
contains the following inscription:  "ELIZABETH CAIN ----   Died December
16, 1851 -Age 73 years".  The identity of this ELIZABETH CAIN has not
been determined, but it may be that she was the widow of ALLAN CAIN.  As
previously noted, ELIZABETH, the wife of ALLAN CAIN, was a daughter of
Stephen Scarlett.  He was one of the persons interested in the original
establishment of St.  Mary's Chapel in 1759, so it appears appropriate
that this Cemetery should have been selected as place of burial for his
daughter ELIZABETH.

   In a report prepared within recent years in connection with
applications for membership in the National Society of the Daughters of
the American Revolution, it is cited that WILLIAM HENRY CAIN was a son of
ALAN CAIN and his first wife Elizabeth Scarlett, and a grandson of HUGH
CAINE, Sr.  This report also contains the following statements:  HUGH
CAIN, Sr., was born in 1740;  his son ALLAN was born in 1775; ALLAN'S
son, WILLIAM HENRY was born October 6, 1807; WILLIAM HENRY CAIN married
Mary Wilkins, December 28, 1839, and that their daughter Martha married
Louis David Castlebury, March 18, 1875.  Also, that the children of HUGH
CAIN, Sr., were:  WILLIAM CAIN, who married Sarah Dudley; HUGH CAIN, who
married Sarah Allan; ALLAN CAIN, who married Elizabeth Scarlett, and
JAMES CAIN and ANN CAIN.

   HUGH CAINE, Sr., was a widower when he died in 1781.  In his Last Will
and Testament he devised his land to three of his six sons, HUGH, JAMES
and ALLAN: also, he gave to his son ALLAN, one sorrel mare: also, he
named five grandchildren, children of his son WILLIAM   It is more than
probable that HUGH CAINE, Sr., was older than 41 years and that his son
ALLAN was older than 6 years at the time of the death of HUGH, Sr., in
1781.  The WILLIAM CAIN who married Sarah Dudley was a son of JAMES
CAINE, (brother of HUGH, Sr.) and the HUGH CAIN who married Sarah Allan
was a son of JAMES CAIN and a grandson of HUGH CAINE, Sr.

   The records relating to the settlement of the estate of ALLAN CAIN, in
several instances, refers to his son WILLIAM.  The Orange County marriage
records show that a marriage bond was executed December 28, 1839, by
Elbert Dossett for the marriage of W(illia)m CAIN and Mary Wilkins.
Also, that a marriage bond was executed October 15, 1842, by Benton Ray
and Archibald Nicholds for the marriage of WILLIAM CAIN and Mary Wilkins.
The name "Henry" does not appear in connection with any of these records.
This chronicler does not have any information relating to the identity of
the persons concerned in the marriage bond dated October 15, 1842.

   The Last Will and Testament of HUGH CAINE, Sr., contains the
following: I give to my daughter ANN CAINE, one pewter dish, six pewter
plates, one feather bed and furniture, two cows and caves; two ews, two
lambs, one bay filly about two years old, one woman's saddle and bridle,
one iron pot, all her mother's & her sister's wearing apparel, and one
pine chest, to her and her heirs forever.  Further information is not
available on this daughter.  Apparently she must have died without heirs
for she did not participate in the distribution of the lands of her
brother, HUGH CAIN, Jr., who died in November 1826.

   Lot No. 3 in the Division of lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., was allotted to
the heirs of his brother; JOHN CAIN.  A deed dated August 9, 1827,
represents a conveyance to Duncan Cameron of the interest of JOHN CAIN'S
heirs in the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased, executed by HUGH CAIN,
JOHN CAIN, ANN CAIN, CATHERINE Leatham, and husband Andrew Leatham, MARY
Simonds and husband Charles G. Simonds, all of the York District, South
Carolina.  Further information is not available on JOHN CAIN, son of HUGH
CAINE, Sr., or members of his family.

   Lot No. 5 in Division of the Lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., was allotted to
the heirs of his brother WILLIAM CAIN.  A deed dated November 26, 1831,
represents a conveyance to Duncan Cameron of the interest of WILLIAM
CAIN'S heirs in the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased, executed by JOHN
CAIN, JAMES CAIN, WILLIAM CAIN, ALLAN CAIN, FANNY Irvin, and husband
David Irvin, MARGARET Cason and husband Lewis Cason of Wilkerson County,
Mississippi, children and heirs at law of WILLIAM CAIN, deceased; and
William Hall, Samuel Hall, Sarah Hall and Nancy Hall, of Hancock County,
Georgia, they being the children of WILLIAM CAIN, deceased.  In his will
HUGH CAINE, Sr., mentioned JOHN CAINE, JAMES CAINE, ANN CAINE, and FANNY
and MARGARET CAINE (twins), as children of his son WILLIAM CAIN.  NANCY
is another form  of the name ANN, so it is assumed that NANCY Hall,
deceased, was the same person as the ANN CAINE mentioned in the Will of
her grandfather.  Further information is not available on WILLIAM CAIN,
son of HUGH CAINE, Sr., or members of his family.

   MARGARET CAINE, daughter of HUGH CAINE, Sr., married Joseph Few.
Neither the date of this marriage, nor the identity of this Joseph Few
has been determined.  It is possible that he was a son of James Few, Sr.,
who came to Orange County in the late 1750s, about the same time that his
brother, William Few, Sr., moved into that county.

   At the time of the death of HUGH CAIN, Jr., the heirs of his sister
MARGARET CAIN Few were residents of the state of Georgia.  In 1830 they
filed a petition in Orange County Court asking for the sale of their
interests in the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased.  As a result of this
petition the Clerk and Master sold Lot No. 1 of the HUGH CAIN, Jr., lands
to Duncan Cameron for $354.00.  The available records disclose the
following relating to the heirs of MARGARET CAIN Few, wife of Joseph Few.

   In April 1831, one of her sons, William Few, was residing in Morgan
County, Georgia, and about the same time one of her sons, Joseph C. Few,
was residing in Newton County, Georgia.  In July 1843, one of her sons,
James Fielder Few, was residing at Madison, Morgan County, Georgia.  In
July, 1843, one of her sons, Seabourn Few, was residing in Morgan County,
Georgia.  In November, 1843, one of her sons, Sidney Few, was residing in
Sumter County, Georgia.  At the same time one of her daughters, Louisa
Few Hubbard, wife of William Hubbard, was also residing in Sumter County,
Georgia.  In December 1843, one of her daughters, Mary Ann Few Hubbard,
wife of John R.  Hubbard, was residing at Madison, Morgan County,
Georgia.  In October 1844, one of her daughters, Sarah Few Wood, wife of
Archibald B. Wood, was residing at Franklin, Heard County, Georgia.

   Further information on MARGARET CAINE Few, and members of her family
is not available.

   Lot No. 4 in the Division of the Lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., was allotted
to his brother JAMES CAIN.  This JAMES CAIN also acquired ownership of
Lot No.  2 of such lands which had been allotted to JACOB CAIN'S heirs.
It is assumed that he purchased this Lot No. 2, although a record of such
a transaction has not been located.

   JAMES CAIN, son of HUGH CAINE, Sr., married ELIZABETH McKinley,
December 21, 1781.  He became a substantial farmer in Orange County, and
acquired considerable land, which included the present day (1964)
homeplace of this chronicler.

   The children of JAMES and ELIZABETH McKINLEY CAIN, were:

NANCY CAIN      Born about 1786 - married Adam Douglas October 28, 1816.
                Died October 24, 1848; buried in St. Mary's Cemetery.

ARCHIBALD CAIN  Born October 12, 1791 - married Parthenia Wood December
                22, 1827.  Died May 3, 1847.

ALLAN CAIN      Very little definite information is available, except
                that contained in comments which follow.

HUGH CAIN       Married Sarah Allan December 7, 1809.  Died prior to
                August 1834; date not determined.

SARAH CAIN      Married John Wilkins August 28, 1828.

MARY CAIN       Never Married.  Died about November 1851.

MARGARET CAIN   Never married.  Died about August 1864.

ELIZABETH CAIN  Never married.  Died about August 1866.

   JAMES CAIN (son of HUGH, Sr.) died about April or May 1834.
Apparently his wife died before the death of JAMES, but information on
this is not available.  After the death of JAMES, his personal property
was sold at auction and his lands were divided among his several
children.

   In the division of the lands of JAMES CAIN - Lot No. 2 of the lands of
HUGH CAIN, Jr., (which had been allotted to the heirs of JACOB CAIN, and
later acquired by JAMES CAIN), became Lot No. 8 of the lands of JAMES
CAIN, deceased, and was allotted to his daughter ELIZABETH.  On November
7, 1834, ELIZABETH CAIN conveyed this 120.75 acres of land to Duncan
Cameron, consideration $504.00.

   Lot no. 4 of the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr., deceased, which had been
allotted to his brother JAMES - 120.75 acres, became Lot No. 7, of the
lands of JAMES CAIN, deceased, and was allotted to his daughter NANCY
CAIN Douglas.  On November 7, 1834, Adam Douglas and his wife NANCY CAIN
Douglas, conveyed this tract of land to Duncan Cameron, consideration
$488.00.

   The following is a summary of the division of the lands of JAMES CAIN,
deceased, made in August 1834.

Lot No. 1   Allotted to MARY CAIN                          114.40 acres
Lot No. ?   Allotted to HUGH CAIN'S Heirs                   88.00 acres
Lot No. ?   Allotted to ARCHIBALD CAIN  (approximately)    110.00 acres
Lot No. ?   Allotted to ALLAN CAIN                         115.50 acres
Lot No. 5   Allotted to MARGARET CAIN  (estimated)         115.00 acres
Lot No. 6   Allotted to SARAH CAIN Wilkins                 115.50 acres
Lot No. 7   Allotted to NANCY CAIN Douglas                 120.75 acres
Lot No. 8   Allotted to ELIZABETH CAIN                     120.75 acres

   The records relating to the division and allotment of the lands of
JAMES CAIN, deceased, have not been located.  The number of acres shown
above as allotted to ARCHIBALD CAIN and MARGARET CAIN have been
estimated.  It may be that there were some financial considerations among
the several heirs.  The home of JAMES CAIN, deceased, was located on the
tract of land allotted to ARCHIBALD CAIN.

   In January 1835, SARAH CAIN Wilkins and her husband John Wilkins
conveyed to her brother ALLAN CAIN, the 115.50 acres of land, known as
Lot No. 6, which had been allotted to her from her father's estate,
consideration $425.00.

   In a deed dated January 19, 1856, John N. Brown conveyed to John B.
Lockhart 231 acres of land, which represented the two lots of the lands
of JAMES CAIN, deceased, which had been allotted to his son ALLAN CAIN,
and his daughter SARAH CAIN Wilkins.  The records do not show when ALLAN
CAIN had disposed of this land, or when of from whom John L. Brown had
acquired it.  This chronicler does not have any information on this ALLAN
CAIN, or where he made his home after he disposed of the 231 acres of
land which had once been a part of his father's estate.

   The Orange County marriage records show that on January 2, 1829, a
marriage bond was executed by Thomas Ward for the marriage of ALLAN CAIN
and Elizabeth Woods.  The identity of this ALLAN CAIN has not been
definitely determined.  It may be that he was the son of JAMES or it may
be that he was ALLAN, Jr., grandson of JAMES.

   There is another member of the CAIN family who this chronicler has
been unable fully to identify.  On September 11, 1832, ALLAN CAIN
executed a marriage bond for the marriage of ABEL CAIN and Melinda
Rhodes.  It may be that the ALLAN CAIN who executed this marriage bond
was the son of JAMES, and that ABEL CAIN was the son of ALLAN.  No
information has been located which indicates that ABEL was a son of
JAMES, or a son of JAMES' brother ALLAN.  It is also possible that ABEL
CAIN was a grandson of JACOB CAIN who died in 1779, and a great-grandson
of HUGH CAINE, Sr., who died in 1781.

   Melinda Rhodes, who became the wife of ABEL CAIN, was a daughter of
Thomas Rhodes, who died during the early part of 1835.  On January 16,
1856, Sherwood H. Garrard and T. Webb executed a marriage bond for the
marriage of Loften K.  Couch and NANCY CAIN, a daughter of ABEL CAIN.

   Information from another source is to the effect that in 1859 Loften
K.  Couch visited Tennessee, and while there informed John Holden, Jr.,
formerly of Orange County, that his wife was a daughter of ABEL CAIN, and
that ABEL CAIN and Col.  John C. Douglas were cousins.  Col. Douglas'
mother was a daughter of JAMES CAIN (son of HUGH, SR.)

   As previously noted, NANCY CAIN, daughter of JAMES, became the first
wife of Adam Douglas.  They were the parents of one child - John C.
Douglas.  He became a prominent business man, and was the "Douglas in the
firm of Webb & Douglas, which in the early part of 1852 established a
cotton factory on Little River, some thirteen miles east of Hillsborough.
Later this was known as "Orange Factory".  During the late 1850s, John C.
Douglas moved to Texas, but further information is not available on his
activities after that time.

   At Orange County Court, November 1846, administration of the estate of
John Wilkins, deceased, was granted to John C. Douglas, and at May Court
1847, William Green was appointed Guardian to Richard, William and James
Wilkins, children of John Wilkins, deceased.  It is possible that this
was the John Wilkins who had married SARAH CAIN, but additional
information is not available on this family.

   Apparently HUGH CAIN, son of JAMES, died prior to the time of the
death of his father JAMES in April or May 1834.  As previously noted, his
wife was SARAH Allan.  Their children were:  WILLIE (WYLIE), who married
Elizabeth James February 23, 1836.  Apparently Elizabeth James was the
widow of Thomas James, who died in February 1832.  Further information on
WYLIE CAIN and his family is not available.

   ELIZABETH (LIZA) CAIN, daughter of HUGH and SARAH, married William F.
Holloway, a son of Thomas Holloway, Jr., and his wife Jane or Jenny, who
was a daughter of John Latta, Jr.

   ANDERSON CAIN, the other child of HUGH and SARAH, moved to the West.
In 1836 he was in Alabama, "getting high wages".  Other information is to
the effect that later he moved to Arkansas.  In 1896, Mrs. L. (?) C.
Rippy (Rippey) purchased 72 acres of land in the Pleasant Green area of
Orange County, North Carolina - a part of the former homeplace of Samuel
(?).  Breeze.  She and her family resided there for several years.  Mrs.
Rippy (Rippey) was a daughter of ANDERSON CAIN, but when or why she
returned to North Carolina has not been determined.

   ARCHIBALD CAIN, son of James, married PARTHENIA Wood December 22,
1827.  ARCHIBALD CAIN was born October 12, 1791, and died May 3, 1847.
The place of his burial is uncertain.  His wife, PARTHENIA, was born
November 13, 1809, and died August 10, 1897.  She was buried in Pleasant
Green Cemetery.
   The children of ARCHIBALD and PARTHENIA CAIN were:


MARTHA A. CAIN         Born July 14, 1829        Died July 28, 1831
ARCHIBALD CAIN, JR.    Born December 26, 1831    Died December 30, 1897
SARAH CAIN             Born July 17, 1834        Died July 8, 1911
HUGH CAIN              Born November 28, 1836    Died December 17, 1851
PARTHENIA CAIN         Born June 24, 1839        Died prior to 1900
ELIZABETH CAIN         Born February 18, 1842    Died December 29, 1912

   ARCHIBALD CAIN, Jr., married a widow, LOUISA Cates, the former LOUISA
Gates, December 16, 1884.  They did not have any children.  LOUISA died
in 1897, prior to August 10th, but the exact date is not available.
ARCHIBALD, Jr., died December 30, 1897.  Both of them were buried in
Pleasant Green Cemetery.

   SARAH CAIN married James C. Scarlett, a son of James and Hannah Allan
Scarlett, December 15, 1853.  James died May 22, 1898, and SARAH died
June 8, 1911.  Both of them were buried in Pleasant Green Church
Cemetery.  Their children were as follows:

Mary A. Scarlett     Married         Stephen A. Douglas
Parthenia Scarlett     ..            William T. Neal
Martha Ann Scarlett    ..            Charles D. Warren
Nancy Scarlett         ..            James Monroe Copley

              INFORMATION RELATING TO FAMILIES
              CAINE - CAIN - CANE - KAIN - KANE

   In 1925 a part of the Bristol Council House (England) was rebuilt and
the City records were moved to new quarters. This brought to light among
other things, two volumes bearing the title "Servants to Foreign
Plantations", which evidently had not been consulted for more than two
centuries.

   These volumes are dated 1654 - 1662 and 1663 - 1679.  The first volume
contains 545 pages and the second volume contains 318 pages.  It has been
stated that these two books contain the names of more than 10,000
emigrants who shipped from Bristol to the New World.

   The second book, 1663 - 1679, contains the names of ISAACK CAINES and
JAMES CAINES.  It is probable that these were among the first members of
the CAINE or CAIN families to emigrate to America.

   Northumberland County, Virginia, records show:  June 3, 1658 - THO.
CANE, dec'd. - His children: WILLIAM, his son; THOMAS, SUSANNA.  Entry
badly damaged; the name Mary Ryner appears.

   Richmond County, Virginia, records show that at a Court held January
6, 1713/14, JOHN CAINE of the Parish of North Farnham, was fined 2, X0
lb.  tobo.  for the public selling of cyder by the retaile in his house,
the 5th day of September, last past.

   On February 28, 1726, WILLIAM CANE (KANE) obtained a grant of 640
acres of land lying southerly of M(?)orratock River, on the lower side of
Fishing Creek.


 On May 6, 1742, JAMES CAINE obtained a grant of 640 acres of land lying
on the north side of Fishing Creek, beginning at the mouth of the Hare
Branch.  These two grants were located in eastern North Carolina.

   On March 15, 1732/33, WILLIAM CAIN obtained a grant of 350 acres of
land lying on the S. W. side of the N. ?. Branch of Cape Fear River, in
North Carolina.  From 1738 to 1760, WILLIAM, JAMES, JOHN, JOSEPH, THOMAS
and SAMUEL CAINE, CAIN, CANE, obtained several grants of land located in
Bladen, Craven and Edgecombe Counties, North Carolina.

   The Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution shows the
names, CAINE, CAINES, CAIN and CANE, with given names: AARON, ABRAM
ABNEPO, CORNELIUS, EDWARD, HENRY, JAMES, JOHN, MATTHIAS, NEIL, PATRICK,
RICHARD, SAMUEL, THOMAS, WALTER and WILLIAM.

   At Orange County, North Carolina, February Court 1761, persons
appointed to lay out a road from the County line near Andrew Shepheard's
to Henry Brasswell's & thence to Johnson County, included WILLIAM CANE.
Sampson Williams was appointed overseer of the said road on the south
side of Haw River and Richard Cheek was appointed overseer on the north
side of said river.  The location of this road has not been determined,
but apparently it crossed Haw River.  It may be that "CANE CREEK", one in
present day Orange County, and another in present day Alamance County,
derived it's name from this WILLIAM CAIN.

   On March 2, 1755, John Wright obtained a grant of 404 acres of land
from John Earl Granville in Orange County (now Alamance County):
Beginning at a white oak in the line of James William, on the North side
of CANE CREEK.  This indicates that __________ (rest of sentence is
illegible) __________________________.

   The records of Granville County, North Carolina, show that on March
21, 1749, Henry McCulloch conveyed to Hugh Woods 400 acres of land in
Granville County, on the north side of Little River.  In 1752 this part
of Granville County became a part of Orange County.  It is probable that
this tract of land was located in the vicinity of the plantation which
later became the property of HUGH CAINE, Sr., but it does not appear to
be the same tract of land which Hugh Woods conveyed to Richard Lewis,
June 7, 1770 (?).

   In a deed dated May 1, 1756, David Pinkerton, planter, conveyed to
DANIEL KANE, taylor, 250 acres of land located in Orange County, on the
north fork of the River Eno.  On February 27, 1759, DANIEL CAIN obtained
a grant of 428 acres of land located in Orange County, on both sides of
Forrister's Creek.  In December 1759, DANIEL CAIN conveyed this tract of
land to David Pinkerton.  This is thought to be the DANIEL CANE who was
one of the five trustees or directors for the town of Childsburg (later
Hillsborough) in the 1759 act of General Assembly which established this
town.

   At Orange County Court - May 1764, a deed was proved, JOHN CAIN to
John Rainey, 250 acres of land:  August Court 1765 - a deed was proved,
Richard Parker to ELIJAH CAIN, 140 acres of land:  November Court 1767 -
a deed was proved, Thomas Webb to WILLIAM CAIN, 200 acres of land:  also
a deed was proved Hugh Wood to HUGH CAIN, 60 acres of land.  If these
several deeds were registered, they do not appear to be included in the
records which now are available in the office of the Register of Deeds.
Therefore, further information on these transactions are not available.
In a number of instances deeds executed during those early years were not
"proved" until some later date.  Therefore, the dates shown above may not
be the dates on which the transactions were completed.

   At Orange County Court, February 1765, James Young & Co. obtained a
judgement against BENJAMIN CAINE for L 6-2-6.  This member of the Caine
family has not been further identified.

   The records in the office of the Register of Deeds for Chatham County,
which was separated from Orange in 1771 - show a number of real estate
transactions between 1772 and 1800, in which the participating parties
included ELISHA CAIN, ARCHIBALD CAIN, WILLIAM CAIN and HARDY CAIN.

             ORANGE COUNTY DEED BOOK NO. 2, PAGE NO. 57

     Grant, John Earl Granville to William Churton, dated June 7, 1754,
     for 663 acres of land lying on the north side of Enoe River.  Orange
     County Court Minutes-October 1754; James Watson, Josias Dixon and
     Lawrence Thompson appointed Commissioners and Trustees for the land
     laid out for the town on the River Enoe, 400 acres.  Orange County
     Court Minutes - May 1780; Deed dated September 9, 1754, was proved -
     William Churton to Francis Corbin, for 263
     acres of land which represented the remainder of the 663 acre
     Grant after conveyance of 400 acres to the Magistrates of the County
     of Orange, laid off for a town by the name of Orange.
     See Orange County Deed Book 2, pages 128 to 131.  This 263 acre
     tract of land was purchased from the heirs of Francis Corbin
     by James Hogg.  This tract of land adjoins the eastern boundaries of
     the Town of Hillsborough.  WILLIAM CAIN, II, acquired part
     of this tract of land sometime after June 1812. and on it
     constructed his home...(rest illegible).

   During the 1700s there were several families in Virginia and North
Carolina, and perhaps also in South Carolina, by the name of "CAIN".
Whether or not there was any direct relationship among these several
families has not been determined.

   At some time during the decade 1750 - 1760, two brothers, HUGH CAINE
and JAMES CAINE, together with their families, settled on land located in
that part of Orange  County, North Carolina, which in 1881 became the
west-central part of Durham County.  In later years the "e" was omitted
from the spelling of the name and it became "Cain".  HUGH and JAMES were
farmers;  in later years some of their descendants became merchants,
doctors and lawyers.

   The locations of the former homes of these two brothers has not
definitely been determined.  There are several traditions among their
present-day descendants, somewhat different as to details, however, all
to the effect that HUGH and JAMES, or their forebears, came to America
from Ireland.  Perhaps the  families originally settled in Pennsylvania,
Maryland or Virginia, and from thence to Orange County, North Carolina.

   HUGH CAINE I :  He died in Orange County about October or November
1781; the maiden name of his wife has not been determined;  however,
there are indications that it may have been Allan.  Their family
consisted of eight children, who were:  (1) HUGH, Jr., who died about
October 1826, unmarried.  (2) ALLAN, who died about March 1831;  he
married Elizabeth Scarlett October 29, 1798, who survived him.  The
Orange County marriage records also show that ALLAN CAIN married Mary
Hester February 18, 1792, and that ALLAN CAIN married Susanna Carpenter
October 24, 1795.  It appears probable that these three marriages
involved the same man, and that Mary and Susanna must have died.  The
settlement of ALLAN'S estate indicates that he had one son and six
daughters.  (3) JACOB CAIN, who died about July or August 1779.  In his
Last Will and Testament he devised two-thirds of his property to the
child with which his wife, JOANNA, was then pregnant.  Apparently this
child was born and survived to maturity, although further in formation as
to it's identity has not been located.  (4) ANN CAIN, who is mentioned in
the Last Will and Testament of HUGH CAINE I;  no further information is
available on her;  apparently she died before the death of her brother
HUGH CAIN, JR., about October 1826.  (5) JAMES CAIN, who married
Elizabeth McKinley December 21, 1781.  Their family consisted of three
sons, ALLAN, HUGH and ARCHIBALD, and five daughters; ANN,(NANCY); SARAH
(SALLY); ELIZABETH (BETSY); MARGARET (PEGGY); and MARY (POLLY).  NANCY
married Adam Douglas October 28, 1816; SALLY married John Wilkins August
28, 1828; BETSY, PEGGY and POLLY never married.  HUGH married SARAH
(SALLY) Allan December 7, 1809; ALLAN married Elizabeth Woods January 2,
1829; ARCHIBALD married Parthenia Wood Oct. 3, 1828.  (6) WILLIAM CAIN;
the date of his marriage nor the identity of his wife has (not) been
determined; five of his children, JOHN, JAMES, ANN, FANNY and MARGARET
are mentioned in the Last Will and Testament of HUGH CAINE I; there were
two other sons, WILLIAM and ALLAN.  In 1831, the heirs of ANN, deceased,
were residents of Hancock County, Georgia, and the other children of
WILLIAM CAIN, were residents of Wilkerson (Wilkinson) County Mississippi.
(7) MARGARET CAIN married Joseph Few, although the date of their marriage
has not been determined.  About April 1831, one of their sons, William,
was a resident of Morgan County, Georgia, and another of their sons,
Joseph C., was a resident of Newton County, Georgia.  In 1843, two other
sons, James Fielder and Seabourn, and a daughter, Mary Ann, wife of John
R. Hubbard, were residents of Morgan County, Georgia; also, during 1843
another son, Sidney, and another daughter, Louisa, wife of William
Hubbard, were residents of Sumpter County, Georgia, and in 1844, another
daughter, Sarah, wife of Archibald B. Wood, was a resident of Heard
County, Georgia.  (8) JOHN CAIN; his heirs were allotted Lot No. 5, in
the division of the lands of of HUGH CAIN, Jr.  A deed dated August 9,
1827, represents a conveyance of this tract of land to Duncan Cameron,
being the interest of JOHN CAIN'S heirs in the lands of HUGH CAIN, Jr.,
deceased, executed by HUGH CAIN, JOHN CAIN, ANN CAIN, CATHERINE Leathem
and husband Andrew Leathem, and MARY Simonds and husband Charles G.
Simonds, all of the York District, South Carolina.  Apparently these
five, HUGH, JOHN, ANN, CATHERINE and MARY, were children of JOHN CAIN,
nephews of HUGH CAIN, Jr., and grandchildren of HUGH CAINE I.

   JAMES CAINE I :  Apparently he died in Orange County, but the date has
not been determined;  neither has the identity of his wife been
determined.  His family consisted of six children who have been
identified, three sons and three daughters:  the sons were;  WILLIAM,
TIMOTHY and JOHN:  the daughters were; MARY, (or MARGARET) who married
John Woods; ANN (NANCY) who married Zebulon Veasey, and SARAH (SALLY) who
married Jacob Allan.  (1) TIMOTHY CAIN died about August 1782, apparently
unmarried.  (2) JOHN CAIN died about May 1816, also, apparently
unmarried.  (3) WILLIAM CAIN was born in 1743, and died July 28, 1834.
He married SARAH (Sally) Dudley, May 28, 1783, the widow of Thomas
Dudley.  She was a daughter of James Alston and his wife Christian
Lillington Alston.  Their children who reached maturity were: WILLIAM
CAIN II, born April 2, 1784 and died September 27, 1857: MARY A. (POLLY)
CAIN, born February 14, 1793, and died during May 1871;  CHARITY CAIN,
born February 16, 1795, and died March 15, 1873:  ANN LILLINGTON CAIN,
born March 17, 1797, and died ?.  MARY A. (POLLY) CAIN married Solomon
Sutherland, and after his death in 1821, she married Dr. Willie N. White
about December 1839;  He died about two years later.  CHARITY CAIN became
the wife of Willie P. Mangum, September 30, 1819 and ANN LILLINGTON CAIN
became the wife of Edward Davis, April 21, 1815.

   WILLIAM CAIN II, married Mary Ruffin, a daughter of Sterling and Alice
Ruffin, in 1819;  Their children were (1) WILLIAM CAIN III, born June 1,
1822, and died May 7, 1855;  (2) JAMES FREDERICK CAIN, born September 26,
1827, and died August 15, 1904;  (3) THOMAS R. CAIN, born July 6, 1831,
and died August 31, 1882;  (4) MINERVA CAIN ---?  ---?, married Tod R.
Caldwell, December 16, 1840;  MARTHA ANN CAIN (5), born 1825?  and died
1900: married Pride Jones May 20, 1840;  (6) MARY C. CAIN, born February
12, 1827, and died May 12, 1908; Married Thomas Ruffin, Jr., June 16,
1858:  (7) STERLING RUFFIN CAIN, born September 25, 1825, and died
September 30, 1853.  (1) WILLIAM CAIN III, married Sarah Jane Bailey,
July 21, 1846;  they had two children, WILLIAM CAIN IV, who never
married;  he died December 5, 1930; and a daughter ELIZABETH, who married
John Stelle Henderson.  (2) JAMES FREDERICK CAIN married Julia Elizabeth
Tate, May 29, 1855;  their children were:  MARY RUFFIN, who married
Robert Gilchrest Trezevant;  JAMES F., Jr.; ELIZABETH TATE, who married
C. L. Hinton;  WILLIAM STERLING, who removed to South America;  JULIA
TATE, who married James Smith Manning;  SUSAN MARSHALL, who married John
Morgan Green; ANNIE PRESTON, who married Robert Rufus Bridges; and SAMUEL
ROBERT CAIN, born December 2, 1870; removed to Mississippi in 1893;
married Minnie Louise Caldwell.

   As previously noted, ANN (NANCY) CAIN, daughter of JAMES CAIN I,
married Zebulon Veasey; in August 1816, they were residents of Hancock
County, Georgia; no further information has been located on them.

   SARAH (SALLY) CAIN, daughter of JAMES CAIN I, married Jacob Allan.
Jacob died about October or November 1806;  he did not mention his wife
in his Last Will and Testament, dated January 13, 1806; apparently she
died before that date.  Their children were, Jacob, William, Sarah
(Sally), who married HUGH CAIN (a grandson of HUGH CAINE I), December 7,
1809;  Elizabeth (Betsy), who apparently never married;  Hannah, who
married James Scarlett, November 17, 1819;  Ann (Nancy), who married
James Latta, August 24, 1790, and Syntha, who married John Scarlett,
January 16, 1790.

   MARY (or MARGARET) CAIN, daughter of JAMES CAINE I, married John Wood
(or Woods).  Information is not available as to the dates of their
marriage of their deaths.  After the death of MARY'S brother, JOHN CAIN,
in March 1816, her share of his estate was divided into seven parts,  and
allotted to her heirs.  Six of these heirs, children of John Woods and
his wife MARY CAIN Woods, were:  Timothy C. Woods, who in May 1818 was a
resident of Jackson County, Georgia;  Hugh Woods, who in February 1817,
was a resident of Davidson County, Tennessee;  John Woods, who in
November 1817, was a resident of Orange County, North Carolina; Mary
Woods of Orange County, who died about November 1817, unmarried;
Elizabeth Woods, of Orange County, who died about August 1838, unmarried.
Ann (Nancy) Woods married Young Dortch August 28, 1799;  their children

The Following are people who have not been accounted for:

"At February Court 1827, in the case of SALLY CAIN vs. HUGH CAIN'S
Administrators, it was ordered that ALEXANDER CAIN, security for the
prosecution of of this suit, be discharged and that Benton Clark be taken
instead.  At August Court, 1827, SALLY CAIN was granted a judgement
against HUGH CAIN'S Administrators in the amount of $400.00 and costs.
It may be that SALLY CAIN and ALEXANDER CAIN were grandchildren of JACOB
CAIN..."  The identity of SALLY CAIN and ALEXANDER CAIN is unknown.

   In a deed dated January 19, 1856, John N. Brown conveyed to John B.
Lockhart 231 acres of land, which represented the two lots of the lands
of JAMES CAIN, deceased, which had been allotted to his son ALLAN CAIN,
and his daughter SARAH CAIN Wilkins.  The records do not show when ALLAN
CAIN had disposed of this land, or when of from whom John L. Brown had
acquired it.  This chronicler does not have any information on this ALLAN
CAIN, or where he made his home after he disposed of the 231 acres of
land which had once been a part of his father's estate.

   The Orange County marriage records show that on January 2, 1829, a
marriage bond was executed by Thomas Ward for the marriage of ALLAN CAIN
and Elizabeth Woods.  The identity of this ALLAN CAIN has not been
definitely determined.  It may be that he was the son of JAMES or it may
be that he was ALLAN, JR., grandson of JAMES.

   There is another member of the CAIN family who this chronicler has
been unable fully to identify.  On September 11, 1832, Allan Cain
executed a marriage bond for the marriage of ABEL CAIN and Melinda
Rhodes.  It may be that the ALLAN CAIN who executed this marriage bond
was the son of JAMES, and that ABEL CAIN was the son of ALLAN.  No
information has been located which indicates that ABEL was a son of
JAMES, or a son of JAMES' brother ALLAN.  It is also possible that ABEL
CAIN was a grandson of JACOB CAIN who died in 1779, and a great-grandson
of HUGH CAINE, SR., who died in 1781.

   Melinda Rhodes, who became the wife of ABEL CAIN, was a daughter of
Thomas Rhodes, who died during the early part of 1835.  On January 16,
1856, Sherwood H. Garrard and T. Webb executed a marriage bond for the
marriage of Loften K. Couch and NANCY CAIN, a daughter of ABEL CAIN.

   Information from another source is to the effect that in 1859 Loften
K.  Couch visited Tennessee, and while there informed John Holden, Jr.,
formerly of Orange County, that his wife was a daughter of ABEL CAIN, and
that ABEL CAIN and Col. John C. Douglas were cousins.  Col. Douglas'
mother was a daughter of JAMES CAIN (son of HUGH, SR.)

NOTE:  These are the descendants of HUGH and JAMES CAIN that have been
identified by family traditions and records.  There may be others.
