Patrick was born in Ireland according to census records. I am at a standstill on my paternal line  so hoping someone might be able to shed some light.  His children might be  [[Cain-3758 | John Cain]] and  [[Cain-3169 | Mahala Cain Ford Anderson]] and [[Cain-3848 | Abel J. Cain]] and [[Cain-3864 | James Cain, Sr.]]

Patrick Cain,Without exact date birth or Baptism date,would be difficult

marriage in Ireland.

Wayne,  You are so right!  Without that information I am unable to search in Ireland.  Hoping someone has information that I don't have on Mahala, John, Abel or James that might tie it together here in the States.

YDNA tests show we are from County Derry -- but got to find out more info this side of the ocean first.

Thanks

Yes, there are quite a few John Cain's -- sure wish my ancestors had used a few other names other than Patrick, James, John!

I do have this record and most of the other Cain's in Perry County listed at my website. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~brandt/John%20Elizabeth%20Tree.html

I just can't seem to tie together James, John, Abel and Mahala and a possible father of Patrick.

Thanks for your help
