Lynn,
I must apologize I was in a hurry when I put out my response to you and Nancy. I think this is how it goes. William's daughter Lena Kaine married Robin Pond. Mary Kaine married ? I will have to find out. Their brother Blair, was killed at age 18 by a drunk driver. This is what there is in the family tree book:

Multiple Tragedies and Family Support
William and Jennie were plagued by tragedy with their large family. The two living boys died young; John Russell died in 1907 at age 21 and William (Bill) Edward died at age 29 of wounds received in WW1.
In chapter 4 we discussed how Katie Kaine (Gibson) moved in with her parents and grandparents (about 1919) when her husband, Skiffington Gibson, and her son Sandy Gibson died. She brought her two remaining children, Skippy and Evelyn with her. Shortly after this, Ruby caught tuberculosis from her husband, Fred Gould, who returned from WW1 with the disease. He died of it as did their youngest son, Donald. Ruby spent four years in a sanitorium recovering, and in the meantime her children, Murray and Billy, were raised by her mother, Jennie, and her sister, Freda at her grandparent's home.
To complete the tragedy, Nellie's husband, John Holland was killed in a barn fire. He was trying to remove a horse from the barn when the updraft from the fire carried him away, to the horror of those trying to help. Nellie moved in to the Blair/Kaine home with her five children. Despite these tragedies, the Blair-Kaine families pulled together and raised some well-adjusted children. This was my grandmother,
Nancy's Greatgrandmother. Hope some of this gives you a clearer picture.

See Ya,

Donna
