Nellie Cain was born in LA to parents that were fishermen. She was left on the steps of an orphanage at age of about 18 months with one brother, age 5. She never knew what happened to her parents and lost contact with her brother untill late in life, but still was not able to get any more information on their heritage, other than he remembered being left at the orphanage. She was put out of the orphanage at age 16(1893) and married Zack Kimball shortly after. Zack already had a daughter who was about 8 at the time of the marraige. With 5 small children, they left LA in about 1914 rode freight train to Texas and settled in Petty (near Paris) Texas where Zack died in 1917. Nellie then married (unknown first name) Baze. They had one son(Melvin) in about 1922. Mr Baze died when Melvin was very young, with all the older children out on their own, some in California, Nellie and Melvin hitch-hiked to Calafornia, for her to find work. She did find a job as hotel cleaning lady, and made her home near Bakersfield, Ca for the rest of her life.
