Early Cain/Kain Families of Washington & Greene Co.'s
Posted by: Dave Cain (ID *****5589) Date: December 26, 2011 at 08:57:45

I am seeking a connection between Jesse Smith Cane/Cain/Kain (b c1830 in Greene Co. d 1916 Morgan Co. IN) and ANY Cain family that may have been in Washington and Greene Counties between c1790 and 1830.

Jesse Smith Cane/Cain’s parents were Jesse Cane (b c1788 PA, d 1850 Pickaway Co OH) and Elizabeth (b c1789, d unk), and he had at least one sibling Sarah (b c1826 PA, d unk).

Jesse and Elizabeth Cain may have been born in Washington Co. or travelled to Washington/Greene Co. later. The family left Greene Co. PA for Pickaway Co. OH sometime between 1830 and 1850.

Since Greene Co. was part of Washington Co. prior to 1796, a search of the 1790 Washington Co. census reveals:

John Cain family (1790 Washington Co, p 199), who is also mentioned in Beers’ Washington Co. PA history (p 1455). I believe he is also considered one of the earliest settlers of Washington and Greene Co's. I do not believe that Jesse Cain is an immediate descendent of this family, but could be a brother/cousin to this John. I have no evidence of this, however.

A second John Cain is found in the 1790 Washington Co. census (p159). I have found NO additional information about this family but I am especially curious about him.

There is also an Edmund Cain family in the 1790 Washington Co. census (p163) for which I have no additional information.

Any suggestions, helps would be greatly appreciated. Also, confirmation that a Cain family line is NOT directly connected would also be helpful.

I have comprehensive DNA information to share as well for those who use genetic genealogy as part of their research.

Many thanks,
