I am also related to Marshal Cain and Almina, but, I have just found out tonight her last name was not Palmer, but, Brown, according to the book "History of Crawford Co, PA" residing in the Allen County Public Library.
Marshal and Almina are in Woodcock, Crawford, PA in the 1850 Census, but, according to this bio, they arrived in Crawford in 1833. I haven't found them in the 1840 census.
The biographical sketch is as follows:
876 BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES:
On the way one of their horses died, and a bull which they drove was placed
in harness in its stead, the rest of their journey. George had to go to Meadville to work out his taxes, as there were no roads in his vicinity. He resided in Randolph Township up to 1880, when he removed to Lorain County, Ohio, and died there in 1881, at the age of seventy -six years. He had the following children: Nancy A. (Mrs. John Seaman), in Dakota; Jeremiah; Eliza (Mrs. E. Tinker), in Ohio; Anna M. (Mrs. David Keep), deceased; Mary J. (Mrs. S. Seaman); Sarah E. (Mrs. V. Sterling), in Dakota; George W., Philip, Jacob, Joseph (deceased), Lydia (deceased), and Lysander (deceased). Our subject was married, December 7,1850, to Mary E. , daughter of Marshall and Almina (Brown) Cain, formerly of Stockbridge, Mass., and who settled in Woodcock Township, this county, in 1833. By this union were eleven children: Leroy (deceased), Rosa (Mrs. William Cole), Laroky (Mrs. Samuel Humel), Zenobia (Mrs. Thomas Shoup), Flora P. (Mrs. Bion Faunce), Elma (Mrs. Walter Dunn), Darwin, Bertie, Maud, Grace, and Leon (deceased). Mr. Cutshall was a resident of Randolph Township, this county, up to 1864, when he purchased his farm in Hayfield Township, where he now resides. He has been Supervisor and School Director of his township; in politics is independent. Both he and his wife are members of the Lutheran Church.
I would be very interested in your opinion. Palmer would have been very fun with all the knights and such. Have you done your own research with the Palmer line? What have you found out?
All my best,
