Elizabeth was born circa 1780 probably in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Lodwick and Mary Brandt, Sr. Her first husband was Jacob Mouler/Mouler/Mohler. He died in 1805 in Fairfield County, Ohio and Elizabeth was named administrator of his estate.

Elizabeth and Jacob had 4 children: Martin Mohler, Jacob Mohler, Mary E. Mohler and Eliza Mohler.

She married John Caine on July 6,1815 in Fairfield County, Ohio. This marriage record is the first record I have of the Cain's in Ohio. [1]

John and Elizabeth had four sons: Lewis born 1816, James born 1819, Isaiah born about 1822 and John.

Death: Elizabeth Cain, Perry Co. OH., Female, age 71, died in June, place of birth PA, cause of death is unknown, no occupation listed.[2]

The land that was willed to her by her father, Lodwick Brandt, Sr., was deeded, upon her death, to her children. It was divided into fourths so presumably 2 of the children had already died. Mary Mohler Kishler, Lewis Cain, James Cain and Isaiah Cain received portions of the land. Martin and Jacob Mohler received money instead of land. [3] To read the will go to this webpage
