His Father: ~*~ My Great Great Grandpa ~*~

Mr. W.H. CAFFEE, of coburg, this county, was married to Miss KATE WATKINS of cane valley, on Tuesday the 24ins Rev. W.B. CAVE officiated.
Wayne Howard Caffey/Caffee was born in 1837 and died in 1923. He had three wives: Lucy Emily Pike, Margaret Heims Heskamp, and Elizabeth Kate Watkins and, according to his obituary, 19 children. The problem is that nobody seems to have documented proof as to who his father was. It is speculated that William Samuel Caffey was his father, but, again, no proof. It is also speculated that Jemima Stillwell might be his mother, but Wayne did live in the same household as Jemima in the 1850 census.

Wayne served in Co. C, 13th Kentucky Infantry Volunteers during the Civil War and received a pension for doing so. However, nowhere in those pension records is there any mention of his father. Not that there has to be, but one might hope for the mention of one family member or another.
