Robert Cain Dead.

Sunday afternoon at 12:30 Robert Cain after a brief illness of a few weeks passed away. He ws a member of the Walla Walla Masonic lodge.

Robert Cain was an old settler and was widely known and esteemed. He was a kind-hearted, upright gentleman, and his death will be sincerely mourned by many outside the immediate family. He leaves a daughter, Elva, and a son who is a lawyer in Walla Walla, Washington. Mr. Cain returned but recently from a visit with his son.

My understanding of Robert Cain is that he was a modest man who never gave a thought to spotlighting his military service; he certainly would never have identified himself by his military rank during his many years as a private citizen. If anything, he tended to underplay his service when asked about it.

Robert and I shared a ancestor, Daniel Cain who fought in the Rev War and died at 103. I would like to talk to anyone from this line of the Cain family. Roberts parents were John Cain & Catherine Haverty, his second wife.
