Notes for John L. Cain:
Amazingly.....I found a William R. CAIN who was listed as a soldier in Company
12th Kentucky Infantry during the Civil War, along side of WILLIAM RILEY
ALEXANDER, and both were mustered on the same day from the same location at
Camp Clio, Kentucky. Could this, William Cain have been the son of JOHN L.
CAIN, (a brother to Wally's Great Grandfather, Jacob Cain)? Also listed are
four with the surname of, ZIMMERMAN. This JOHN L. CAIN married LYDIA
ZIMMERMAN. I have copies of an old Zimmerman letter written by a soldier to
his new bride during the Civil War.
