Other Children of Kish Caines

Other Children of Kish
CAINES, Cornelius
      Father: Kish Caines
      Mother: Unknown [Native]

Notes:
- Very little is known about Cornelius except the fact that he was a son of Kish.
- Cornelius, according to oral history, lived with Solomon for a number of years. His nieces always referred to him as ‘Uncle Con’. Solomon’s daughter, Mary Alice, always claimed that Uncle Con bought her first accordion for her.
- In later years, after Mary Alice developed Alzheimer’s, whenever her son Joseph visited she called him ‘Uncle Con’.
