Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my ancestors for many years and have searched through many cemeteries looking for them. I believe that Find A Grave is such a valuable resource for anyone researching their family's history that I have volunteered my time to help. I live in Wetumpka, Alabama and have recorded and photographed many memorials in my area. If I have recorded one of your family members and you would like me to update or change a memorial, please let me know. I am also happy to transfer memorials to you. Please use the Edit tab from the memorial for your transfer request.

For Link request, please make sure you provide me with the Find A Grave Memorial number found at the bottom of the memorial page.

One last thing
You asked if I am a family member; I'm a descendant of the Lewis and Johnson families that settled at Pine Flat in 1818, and my ancestors were neighbors of the Cains and part of Cain's Chapel from it's inception. Several of my ancestors are buried at Mount Zion as well as a very large number of them at Cain's Chapel - although I am not a direct descendant of Elisha Cain, very many of my cousins are. I also have ancestors at Pine Flat Presbyterian and Deatsville cemeteries. :)

The math
Sorry I did the math wrong. He would have been born in 1807 which makes much more sense as his sister Martha was the oldest.

RE: A Cain
Hi Lawrence,

Thanks for asking. If you study the stone up close or if you were to do a rubbing of it, you will see that the death date is 1836, not 1826. It's possible that the stone itself has eroded. I was just there not long ago - one of my cousins worked on restoring the cemetery and cleaning the gravestones - but I cannot today find a photo. I've been studying the Cain's Chapel church history and cemetery in great depth, as well as the Cain family history. There is nobody but Archibald Cain that this tombstone can belong to. First of all, it's a "he," and there was only one son, and also only one person with the first initial of "A" that it can belong to. Here is an excerpt from one of the church histories:

"...Archibald Cain, Elisha and [Catherine] Margaret's only son, married Lucinda Green Jordan on January 22, 1831. Their marriage was cut short, however, for he died on July 2, 1836, leaving her with three small sons. The inscription on his tombstone reads, "Sacred to the memory of Mr. A. Cain who departed this life in the year 1836 in the 29th year of his age. He was a member of the M. E. Church and died in full faith of meeting his God." He, too, is buried in the Mt. Zion Cemetery.

Lucinda married again six years later. She married Dr. B. F. Benson in 1842. She and Dr. Benson are buried in the Cain's Chapel cemetery."

Also, Elisha Cain married Catherine Lewis on Feb. 6, 1805, which makes it fit that Archibald Cain was born at the end of that year and thus died in 1836 in the 29th year of his age. (Perhaps he was actually 28 3/4). It is also documented that Archibald Cain and his two sisters were born in Orange County, SC, and came to Pine Flat, AL around 1818-1819. This is based on a document written in 1886 as dictated by one of the daughters of John & Mary Lewis, settlers who were already there before the Cain family arrived.

It is possible that Elisha Cain was married previously and had another family with a wife who died - possibly a son Elisha and a child named Aly - but these people could also be cousins and at any rate, never came to Alabama with him and his wife Catherine. The 1886 interview speaks of "Elisha Cain and his family consisting of his wife and three children," well known within the church to be Archibald, Martha, and Sarah - this because there are so many descendants and their genealogy is well documented.

Hope this helps, and wasn't too much information!

I had put in a photo request for this person and they were unable to locate the headstone, any idea. I saw where his wife may be unmarked. This is my husband's gggrandfather.

Mt Hope
I am trying to identify ALL of the veterans interred in Mt Hope, cemetery, Aston PA. I have two of your ancestors. You gave me John Thomas. Do you know of any more relatives or friends, etc buried here? I am up to 845. I started research back in 2008, when I buried my wife. We are both Viet Nam era Vets.
Along with names, if you have any military "I.D." such as DD 214, draft card, etc. I'm trying to give descriptions of our vets as well.
So far, I went through the files. Now, I started walking the cemetery, starting with plot 1. JACK POT ! Ten more vets so far !!!
thanking you in advance,
Tony Clark

Obit for Mrs. Maggie Kelley
I have an obit for Mrs. Kelley who is buried in Good Hope Cemetery in Elmore Co., Ala. It was printed in an 1899 Primitive Baptist publication. I would like to share.
