I also seek info. re: Robert Hiram Caines's ancestors. I know some of them were millers at Fallsburg, Ky. My Robt.'s parents were Henry and Mary Salisbury Caines. He was born in March ?, 1884, I believe, and had siblings: Harry Cooley Caines, Woots W., Gertrude, Minnie, that I know of. He was born in Lawrence County KY and lived alongside the Big Sandy River. I recall the mention of a Dick Caines, Edward, Ollie Caines Jones, and there is a cemetery near the Big Sandy River so old the names are barely distinguishable on the headstones. There is a Harmon buried there among others. I'm sure this is the same family if one is interested in searching the public records of Law. Co. All of this family were employed by the C&O Railroad. My father-in-law, Robert Hiram, worked for them for 59 years, finally retired as a conductor. His brother, Woots W., was a bridge superintendent, Harry Cooley also worked in bridge department, and the rest were girls.
Their property was acquired at tax sales from other members of the family dating well back into the 1800s.Ed and Ollie were cousins but I don't know the name of their father. They lived at Potter Station just north of Louisa.
I may be able to direct you to more information but that's about all I have.
Good luck in your search.
Deanie
