Have found no connection between the two Cain families in Bladen Co.NC. William (ca.177-1781) was father of SW family on S side of Cape Fear River near Tarheel. Others in NE side of river with a William(ca.1700-1791, stone says "Old Man") Connection to other NE Cains uncertain. James(1753-1835) is first sure member. Also possible brother John and others.
