    I am the great granddaughter of Cain Wilfong. I wanted to give you a few corrections.
    Ellen Tenney was the mother of all of Cain's children. She died on August 13, 1921. Their last child was Myrtle, who was born on March 27, 1920. His second wife was Mary Katherine Fitzgerald (aka Mollie). She was previously married to Forrest Dowell Sandy on May 21, 1900.
    Cain and Mollie had no children.
    You have a nice site. Hope this is of some interest to you. I have some Wilfong pictures on my family page:
