I am searching for information about my mother's family history. We know that her ancestors originated somewhere close to Ballymoney, Ireland. We arent sure how they came to America or where they had their citzenship. My mother's parents are Dorrine Etrula Foster and Emmett Leroy Kain. They married on April 12,1944. I'm looking on the Kain side of the family right now. My grandfather Emmett was born on March 21,1917 in Glasgow ,MO.
He died on July 25,1974. He resided in Keokuk, Ia were my mom grew up. His parents were Frank E Kain and Nancy Conrad Kain. Nancy was born in Glasgow on October 20,1896. Her parents were Oliver and Frances Harmon Conrad. She died in September of 1963. I'm not sure where Frank was born in Missouri also, not sure when. He died on August 18,1944. My grandfather has a brother named Marvin Edward Kain and had a sister named Mary Evelyn Kain.
She died at the age of three from diptheria. This is all I know so far. My mother has traveled to Ireland, but has found no information yet. If anyone could help us continue on, please reply. Thank you
