Thomas Cain, a former resident of the town of Sangerfield, died at his home in Utica on Tuesday following an illness of only a few days.

Mr. Cain was born in County Tipperary, Ireland, September 18, 1841. In 1848 he came to America with his parents, who located in Oswego. They lived there two years and then removed to the town of Sangerfield, where Mr. Cain was brought up and worked as a farmer most of his life.

In 1864 he enlisted in Company B., One Hundred and Eighty-fourth Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and joined the Army of the Potomac. He served under Gen. Phil. Sheridan all through the Shenandoah Valley and at the battle of Cedar Creek was wounded in the right shoulder, but soon rejoined his regiment. He was mustered out July 15, 1865, and returned to his home in this county. He became the owner of a farm of175 acres about two miles outside of Waterville and there he engaged in hop farming for many years.

In 1901 he went to Utica and had since lived here. He retired from active work in 1907, and had since enjoyed the fruits of his labor, and the companionship and affection of the large family of children with which God had blessed him. Aside from a difficulty of hearing, he had enjoyed good health and was a man very well preserved. He was a Democrat in politics, and was a devout member of St. Bernard's Church of this village and St. Patrick's Church in Utica. He married Anastasia Ryan of Waterville, who died in 1916. Mr. Cain leaves the following daughters and sons, Misses Mayme, Catherine and Alice Cain, Mrs. James Rogers, Mrs. John Noon, Dennis, James and Edmund, all of Utica, Thomas Cain of Madison, and three grandsons, Thomas, Edward and William Cain of Madison.
