Joseph and Julia Ann Cain moved to Mobile from PA in early 1820s and had a second son, Joseph Stillwell Cain, who is credited with reviving Mardi Gras in Mobile post Civil War.
Joseph b.~1790 Morrisville PA(NJ) d. 4/28/1856 Mobile.
Julia Ann b.~1795 Philadelphia d. 3/25/1877 Mobile.
Children:
Jesse Turner Cain b.~1805 ?? d. 10/30/1880 Mobile.

Joseph Stillwell Cain b.10/10/1832 d. 1904
Alfred Henderson Cain b. 1836
Josephine Cain b. 1839

Also, looking for book Joseph Stillwell was selling according to 7/13/1894 newspaper article.

Have been looking for info since 1983 on all above without any luck finding where they came to AL from.
