I do not have any direct connection with the Cain family--although several of my very distant Hutchison cousins married Cain descendants.

If you have the chance, you might want to contact Mrs. Ollie Dickerson Hutchison of Newport, MS. She is in her 90's now and is the daughter of Jasper and Mary Cain Dickerson. When I last spoke with her in connection with research for my book "Yesterday"--an Attala County history/genealogy--she was possessed of an excellent memory and was very helpful. She is the widow of Clifton Hutchison and lives at their family home on Highway 14.

It may help in your search for Cains to know that a large number of them lived just across the Big Black River from West, MS in the adjacent Attala County. Descendants of this family intermarried with other Attala County families and some of the latter are listed above.

I am from the Dickerson and Cain blending in Attala County. My father is Carl Allen Dickerson. My grandparents are Hubert Dickerson and Euphie Cain. Euphie's parents were Vera Willis and Cicero Cain.

I just entered a ton of Hutchison/Hutchinson information because they tie into some of my lines on both sides of my family. I have Aldy info, Cain, Dickerson, Burrell (back to 1500s thanks to Wylodean Edwards), Ashley, Breland, and more.

I have a huge database of all my lines (36500+ people not all on my side of family though. My husband has a few thousand of his own in there). I do have a ton of Cain info through Cicero's lines and up. If anyone is interested you may download it at www.dickerson-goodloe.com and email me if you have a connection. I am interested in expanding my database to include anyone that I don't already have. If you can fill in blanks or if you need to correct data that I have, please email me! Links are on my page above.

I was born and raised in Sallis, Attala, MS. My dad and grandmother still live there. I have a ton of cousins, aunts/uncles, etc still in the area. I'm pretty much alone in California.

Please contact me!

Re: Cains of West, MS--Aldy/Alday/Allday versus O'Day

I suggest that you go slow and be very critical of the Red O'Day story. My mother and I both used to accept that story a real possibility, but after several years of studying the family roots I have found a number of flaws that discredit the story. Luke Matthew Aldy was my grandfather, and his father was Redmon Robert Lee Aldy of Sallis, MS. The first Aldy/Alday/Allday into Attala County, MS was Redmond Wilburn Aldy/Alday/Allday, my great-great-grandfather. He and his family first moved to the Shady Grove community of Attala Co., MS. The spelling of "ALDY" is unusual in the family and pretty much marks that part of the family with roots from Attala Co., MS. After the death of Redmond W. Aldy, it appears that the rest of the family relocated from Shady Grove to the small farming community of Sallis, MS, where some of the family farms to this day. The early family moved up from the Kemper Co., MS area, and before that they were down in southwest Georgia, where others of the family remain. The father of Redmond W. Aldy/Alday was Benjamin Alday/Allday, who came from southwest Georgia and lived for several years in Butler Co., AL, where he died. Benjamin served in the Butler County Militia about 1835 (Henderson's Company, Smith's Alabama Mounted Volunteers). Not long thereafter, following his father's death, Redmond and his mother and a brother all moved back to southwest Georgia, where they remained until his mother's death sometime shortly after 1850. Redmond W. Alday then moved up into Mississippi. The father of Benjamin Alday/Allday was Josiah Alday/Allday who was a captain in the Augusta Division of the Georgia State Militia for some six years prior to the Revolutionary War (reference the Third Company of the Fourth Regiment, known as Captain Josiah Allday's Company). For a period of time, the family lived just to the south of Augusta, GA near Waynesboro (Burke Co., GA). The family roots are fairly easy to trace and document back to this point, and the earlier family clan can be traced all the way back to Colonial Virginia. The sketchy documentation for the O'Day story just does not fit the established family profile for Aldy/Alday/Allday family of Georgia/Alabama/Mississippi. Later, some of this family clan left Attala Co., MS and went on to settle in Louisiana and Texas. Be careful with the facts and good luck with your continued research.
