    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ruth & Lyle CAIN which was taken at the Old Mission Studio in Los Angeles, CA. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with the two children appearing to be about 7-9 years old at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding these siblings and their family: Jennie Ruth CAIN was b. 14 Feb 1894 in Burlington, CO to parents Roy or Ray Bottsford or Botsford or Botsfold CAIN (b. 5 May 1868 in Scotland Co. MO-d. 17 Mar 1929 in Wenatchee, WA) and Maud or Maude May PENFOLD or PENFORD (b. Apr 1877 in Iowa-1961). Jennie had a brother, Lyle B. CAIN b. 19 Dec 1895 in Burlington, CO. Lyle was serving in France when he was wounded and later died of his injuries in New York, NY on 30 Jan 1919. Lyle was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his heroic efforts on that day in Fismes, France. Jennie married J. Dwight GILL (1890-1967) and they had 4 children including a son, Harvey James GILL (1918-2011). Jennie died 2 Apr 1967 in Wenatchee, WA. The family is all buried in the Wenatchee City Cemetery in Wenatchee, WA. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Burlington, CO: Roy B. CAIN, age 32, born May 1868, married 7 years, born MO, parents born OH/IN, a Day Laborer Maude M. CAIN, wife, age 23, born Apr 1877, married 7 years, born IA, parents born IL Ruth CAIN, dau, age 6, born Feb 1894, born CO Lyle B. CAIN, son, age 4, born Dec 1895, born CO And living directly next door - Ruel CAIN and wife Sarah E. CAIN - likely Roy's parents 1910 census of Columbia, WA: R. B. CAIN, age 42, married 17 years, born MO, parents born VA/IN, a US Government Mail Carrier M. M. CAIN, wife, age 35, married 17 years, 2 children/2 living, born IA, parents born IL R. CAIN, dau, age 16, born CO L. CAIN, son, age 14, born CO I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
