Shelley -

I am the coordinator of the Stanfield Research Group
and host the Stanfield Family website. Any information
on the Cain descent which you could share, we would be
happy to have.

In addition to Hannah Stanfield marrying William Cain, her
sister Rebecca Stanfield married his brother Benjamin Cain
or so it appears. John Stanfield's will, written 17 Aug 1815,
and proved 17 Apr 1816, Cumberland co,KY, specifically
mentions that he bought his 50 acres on Bear Creek in
Cumberland County from William Cain and that he desires
that William Cain buy the same back from his estate and pay
the market value of the land out in 6 shares. One share to be
retained by William Cain as his wife's share. His other children
namely Rebecca Cain, Samuel Stanfield, and Phillipina Scott
each to receive one share and his youngest dau Lydia Rayfield
to receive 2 shares. The two oldest children Mary Biddick &
Thomas Stanfield received only nominal bequests having received
their inheritance during their father's lifetime it is presumed.

The son Samuel Stanfield and son-in-law Absalom Scott were
executors of the estate. From the final acounting of the administration
recorded 16 Jul 1816, Will Bk B:28-29, Cumberland co,KY, amongst
other accounts, it shows that William Cain was compensated $89
for handling the funeral arrangements and expense.

Mary Biddick and husband are believed to have remained in Surry co,NC
and eventually removed to AR. Thomas Stanfield had been in Cumberland
County in 1810 but at his father's death had already removed to
Washington co,KY. He subsequently came to Indiana before 1830 and is
my ggg-gf. The other children and their families are all believed to have
been resident in Cumberland co,KY at the time of John Stanfield's death.
Samuel Stanfield came to Morgan co,IL in the 1820's and made his final
accounting in Macon co,MO where he had moved in the 1830's. The
son-in-law Absalom Scott & wife Phillipina remained in KY; he died in
Cumberland County in 1847.

This was the last birth-right Quaker generation of this branch of the Stanfield
family. Mary Bittick/Biddock condemned her marr.out at Cane Creek MM. All
of the other children were disowned in Surry co,NC either at Deep River MM
or after 1793 at Deep Creek MM.
