We have been told an early ancestor by name of William Cain came over and settled in upper South Carolina between the years 1730 - 1740. He was granted land in that area by the King Of England. Any information leading to his family in England would be greatly apprieciated!

I've got a John Cain born about 1794, and had a son with Winneford Vannoy named William M. Cain in 1828. I do know that John Cain had an American Revolution marker on his grave.

William Cain, aka William Caine Sr, died March 3, 1732 in Bertie County, NC. He was a planter, and had a wife name Elizabeth. I have had different results on their children's names, but may be Hargraves, William, Cador, Patience, Unity, Sarah and Rachel. I have not been able to trace any further back, but I would like to know if my ancestry is English, Irish or Scottish. Most likely, all of the above. I am wanting to find my Cain Scottish Tartan. It seems my line of ancestors went from North Carolina to South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, to Texas where I am at. Check out www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pointe/3829/outfam/cain.html
Any info on Celtic heritage would be appreciated.

I am interested to find out from whom you were directly descended. My ggrandfather, Nathaniel (could have been his middle name) was born in NC, married a woman (Mary) who was born in LA and moved to Polk County, TX. I have been tracing down the lines of the siblings but I'm stumped on some.

I was told, but can't prove it, that Mary's last name was Pink Fitzgerald (not sure if she had been married before or what). Nathaniel, I think went by John Nathaniel, but can't prove at present. He was born about 1834 as was she. In the 1870 census, in Polk Co, TX they were both listed as 37. In 1880, she was alone with her children in San Jacinto Co. TX, age 46.
