Hello

Im looking for information on the wife of Abraham Cane b. abt. 1780 in Pennsylvania d. 1872 in Marshall Co., WV.
I think his wife Rebecca was my 4x great aunt but I have been unable to prove this. James Marshall, my 4x great grandfather named daughter Rebecca Cain in his will. Based on what is known about her siblings it is possible that Rebecca was born in Maryland about 1780. This matches information given about Rebecca Cane/Cain in the 1850 census for Marshall County.

If anyone knows anything about this family please let me know. They did live in Greene Co., PA around 1810.

I know you posted this long ago, but I just ran across it. Rebecca and Abraham Cain had a daughter, also named Rebecca. She married Reese Winters, they were my gg-grandparents. Rebecca Jr died about 1834. Resse remarried, also to a Marshall, Pricilla Marshall. I do not know the relationship between the two wives, maybe cousins? I don't know anything about Abraham Cain (Cane/Kane) beyond that.

Surnames: Cain, Cane, Marshall, Dowd, Doud
The only others of James Marshall's children I have information on are Nancy and Hezekiah. Since I posted the query I havent found anything else out about Rebecca and Abraham Cane/Cain.
James and Mary Marshall had another daughter Mary who married a Doud/Dowd. I have no names for their brother Eli's children and brother James Jr. I have single son's name, George W.Marshall, but there were more.
I havent had a lot of time to work on this but now you have inspired me to work some more on the Marshall family.
