Capt. R.C. Blain, who was born in Stanford May 15, 1842, died on the 8th at his home near Williamstown. He lived here from childhood until August 6, 1861, when he enlisted in Co. F. 1st Ky. Cavalry, and was soon made first lieutenant, and at the battle of Perryville his captain was killed and he was at once promoted to the captaincy, which place he held during the war. He participated in numerous hard fought battles and was always conspicuous for his courage.
He was an elder in the Presbyterian church and a Royal Arch Mason in good standing; by which order the funeral rites were conducted in a very impressive manner. He was a man of exemplary habits, strong character and loved by all who knew him.
