Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 11, 1776
Death: Aug. 4, 1864

Rebecca Jane Compton McCain, wife of James S. McCain (1773-1832). One of Rebecca's daughters, Jane McCain (1805-1870), married John P. Figh in Tuscaloosa, AL, and this is the reason Rebecca was buried in the Figh Plot. After her husband died in 1832 in Tuscaloosa County, Rebecca later moved to Montgomery, Alabama along with the Fighs and lived with her daughter Jane McCain Figh and family. Her son, James Madison McCain, and daughter, Rebecca McCain Compton, also lived in Montgomery and then Elmore County.
James and Rebecca traveled from South Carolina and located in Tuscaloosa County when Alabama became a territory/state(1817-1819) locating in Moundville, on the border of what is now Hale County. Their children were: John, George Adam, Jane, James Madison, Mary, Martha, and Rebecca McCain. Her oldest son, John McCain and his wife, Mary "Polly" Moore Browne McCain, moved from Perry County, Alabama, to Caddo Parish, Louisiana in the 1840s. Her son John, was the Rev. John McCain, and he founded Bethal Primitive Baptist Church, near Albany in Caddo Parish Louisiana. This church is still active today.
