    Notes 
    • 1930 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (McClellan District), enumerated on May 12 1930:
      Cornelius V. Cain, 25, laborer on public road, age 19 at time of first marriage; wife Rachel, 25, age 19 at first marriage; dau Ruthie, 7; dau Edith, 4y 8m; son Harley L, 2y 3m; dau Gladys M, 1y 2m.

      Sometime in the next ten years, Cornelius and Rachel separated. In the 1940 Census, they were enumerated in separate households, Cornelius with his future wife Ethel, and Nancy with her mother, two brothers and her 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter.

      1940 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (McClellan District), enumerated on Apr 22 1940 at Franks Run Road:
      Neal Cain, 35, roustabout in petroleum industry, married (wife not present); housekeeper Ethel Sandy, 25, married (husband not present); Rexel, 16; Cathaline, 14; Edith, 13; Harley, 12; Gladys, 11; Helen, 9; Doris, 7; Carmen, 2; Junior, 1.
      NOTE: All children were listed with the surname Sandy and indicated as being the housekeeper's children.

      1940 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (McClellan District), enumerated on Apr 19 1940 at Sycamore Fork:
      Dilemma Yeater, 78, widowed; Jakie, 42, single; Rachel, 35, married (husband not present); Patrick, 32, single, road construction worker; Clifton G. Carroll, 5; May Carroll, 3.
      NOTE: Other than granddaughter May, relationships were not stated. Surnames of Jakie, Rachel and Patrick were not entered, but implied to be Yeater. This would not be correct for Rachel, since she was still married to Cornelius Cain. Clifton and Olive May Carroll were Rachel's children by Howard Clifton Carroll, although they later adopted the Cain surname and regarded Cornelius Cain as their father.
