Patrick C.
1858 - 1929
Hattie E. His Wife
1862 - 1933

Buried Pilot Knob Cemetery, Crittenden County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 9 April 2014.

According to his death certificate #25839, Patrick Cain Gilbert was born 30 April 1858 and died 24 September 1929. His parents were listed as Jno. M. Gilbert and Pernecie Brantley.  P.C. Cain married Mahala Fritts 8 January 1880 at the home of Rhoda Fritts in Crittenden County. It is curious that the wife of P.C. Cain is listed as Halie or Mahala on the marriage and census records as well as her death certificate, but is listed as Hattie on her tombstone.  Her death certificate shows her parents as Jack Fritts and Rhoda McCormack, both born in Tennessee. In 1920, P.C. and Mahala (Fritts) Cain were living on Fords Ferry Road, Crittenden County.
