James Cain, who was perhaps the oldest native citizen of Madison county, died Sunday, June 20, at the home of his son, Jason Cain where he had been during the last months of a long illness. His funeral was conducted by Rev. Russell Harding at the Alabam church at 2 o'clock p.m. Tuesday and interment was made in the cemetery there under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity. Members of lodges at Berryville, Kingston, Marble, Huntsville and Alabam attended. Pallbearers were five grandsons and one great grandson, Dell Cain, Lem Patrick, Howard Cain, Charley Burkett, Will Cain and Ray Smith.
Mr. Cain was born near Huntsville, Ark., November 16, 1845, and resided all his life on farms near here, he having been for many years one of the county's most prominent and prosperous real estate owners and operators. He served as a Confederate soldier during the Civil war and was a charter member and one of the last survivors of Stonewall Jackson camp of U. C. V.'s No. 1593, which was organized at this place September 9, 1905. He was married in 1867 to Matilda Hawkins, who died in February, 1928. They were the parents of ten children, only four of whom survive them, Tom Cain and Will Cain of Huntsville, Mrs. Emma Patrick of Jenks, Okla., and Jason Cain of Berryville.
