My goodness....alot of information but no direct line here...so I will write what I know about my family and if anyone can add something in, please email me at MoMcCart@aol.com
My mother is Melba M. Bain McCarthy
Her father was James William Bain
His father was George William Bain
His father was James Bain born in Scotland and died in Fulton County, Illinois

James first settled in Jasper County, Illinois where he married Nancy Allen in 1841. They had four children that I know of... Hannah Bain Wilson, Ellen Bain Craig, Laura Bain Metzel, and George William Bain. Three of the four of these children wrote their place of birth as Cumberland County, Illinois....just north of Jasper.
Every mention of Nancy Allen Bain says she was born in Hardin County, Kentucky.
And word of mouth states that she is first cousin to Nancy Hanks, mother of Abraham Lincoln. Legend states he visited the Bains often especially when Thomas and Sarah purchased their property in South Coles County, just north of Cumberland County.
If anyone should have any information regarding the Allen/Hanks connection....it would be greatly appreciated. You can contact me at MoMcCart@aol.com.

Mostly, I see mention of the brothers of Nancy Hanks or her uncles....what about her sisters?

Now, it's 2004. And I finally recieved a notice of a response...although the response seems to be to those who responded to those who responded to me years ago.

Since then, I have found several more daughters of James Bain & Nancy Allen. I also believe I may have found a round about connection and one that would somewhat dispute our direct connection to Abraham Lincoln.

I found that one of the daughters married a LeGrande/LaGrand and that the LaGrands married Hanks family members in Kentucky...is there anyone out there that recognizes any of these names?
