From Civil War pension records I have determined that Jesse Smith Cane/Cain/Kain (b c1830 Greene Co. d 1916 Morgan CO IN) had an older brother John G. Cain (b 1816 PA d 1875 IN).

I also have concluded record searches in Greene Co. via volunteers and a professional genealogist. We have been unable to find any written records of Jesse Smith Cain or his father Jesse Cain (b c 1788 PA d 1850 Pickaway Co OH) in Greene Co. PA.

Thus, I have been unable to connect Jesse Cain with any of the known Cain families living in the county between 1800 and 1850.

I am still interested in comparing DNA results with anyone who has a male Cain family member with a Greene Co. PA connection.

Many thanks,

Dave Cain
