Re: Looking for Cains in VA

In Reply to: Re: Looking for Cains in VA by Lorenda Patton of 5548

I think you are talking about Rebecca M. Fulks who was married to James Gentry who was born about 1831 and died of measles in Carroll 03 Aug 1861. There were two children; James T. (b.1856) and Joseph G. (b.1859) both of whom died of diptheria on 8 and 10 Dec 1861 respectively. All this comes from the death records.

I have not found the marriage record for James and Rebecca, but assume them to have been married.

After James' death, Rebecca had 8 more children between 1866 and 1879. I suspect William Cain was the father. Laura (or Lula) Cain who was born in 1867 listed William and Rebecca Cain as her parents when she married Joseph Sutherland in 1886.

I know William and Rebecca were living together at the time of the 1870 census and a child was born in Jan that year, a male.

William was released from prison camp in Jun 1865 and Rebecca's next child was born about 1866.

In my database I have arbitrarily listed some of the children as Gentrys and some as Cains.

Here's what I have on Rebecca's descendants;
