I am trying to make a connection between 3 Bain families in Trimble/Woodford County, KY that I believe HAVE to be connected somehow.
I am trying to place my known ancestor, John L Bain b ca 1826 (m. Elzb Tyree) from Woodford Co, KY with one or both of the following families. My reasoning is that John named 3 of his children Lindsey, Sidney, and Locky...... not very common names back then.
First there is the family of Johnson Bain & Hannah Foster. I have multiple children for them, one of which is Lindsey Bain (m Martha Hensley & Sidney McHenry). No children from his first marriage are mentioned in his will.
Second is the family of George Bain (m. Polly Warren & Betsy Blanton). I believe that this George MAY be the brother of the Johnson Bain mentioned above, but no proof. The children of George’s first marriage were not mentioned by name in his will, but it’s possible that 2 sons were Patterson and Johnson..... in his will he states:
“I George Bain of Woodford County Kentucky....having divided among my first wifes children at their marriage the greater part of the property I posessed at the death of their mother and each of them having received legacies from their grandfather .....”
so I’m wondering who the ‘grandfather’ is that is mentioned, and perhaps there is a will somewhere that might shed some light on this?????
George Bain and Betsy Blanton’s son Joseph T Bain b 1798/99 (m Lockey Sharp & Charlotte Updike). I can only find one son listed as being born to Joseph & Lockey and that is George F Bain. I cannot locate a will for Joseph T Bain, though that might also contain more clues.......
So, my John L Bain would have to be either the son of Lindsey Bain or the son of Joseph T Bain or I am completely on the wrong track!!!!
Does anyone have any info that might document this one way or the other? Thanks Beta
