      Gravestone for Andrew Cain, as noted in the Carlisle County Cemetery Book, was erected by William Tackett.  Son of William and Sarah.  Could it have been Sarah Tackett LNU?

      According to WH Cain's marriage record, his father, James B was born in Calloway County, KY

      Bailey's property lay in Trigg County, which was carved out of Christian County.  Livingston County is nearby.  There is a William Cain in Livingston County in 1830:  There is a Charles Cain on the same page.  Bailey does not have a son named Charles. Is this the right William?  Don't think so.  A William Cain remains in Livingston County in late years and is Postmaster.
