Thanks, yes it does help some. Knowing that Bailey's son William was in Caldwell in 1819 is helpful. I believe that this same William married Sally Tackett in Calloway County on April 12, 1825. Calloway was formed from Caldwell in 1821. There is evidence that his son James Bailey Cain was born either in Caldwell or Calloway County around 1834 although there are no tax records for William in Calloway around that period. I think the family then went on to Missouri where Isaac Newton Cain was born two years later. Andrew Jackson Cain came along two years later. James, Isaac & Andrew arrived in Ballard around 1858. Andrew died that year and a cemetery book says that his gravestone says that his parents were William and Sarah Stone Cain. Sarah Stone must have been wife #2. Andrew's gravestone also says that the headstone was erected by William Tackett. James Bailey is found living with William Tackett in 1860 and Isaac is found living next door to William Tackett's father in law that same year. The pieces are starting to fit. Thanks for the reply.
