You are very welcome!! I love helping people, makes the heart feel glad when you do.

I am waiting on my photo buddy to have a day off (he is always out taking pics of bugs, birds, creatures, critters, varmints) so that we can go out and take the headstone photo for you. Hopefully, Sunday or Monday, I am keeping my fingers crossed :)

Did you ever find his wife? There are no other McKain's at South Park.

Have a great day

WOW-that would be GREAT if you could get his tombstone photo! Didn't know if you were near by.
Yes, his wife(strange not mentioned by name in his obit,only his sister) went back to WV,living,we think,with Jas' sister,Louise, Mazelle dieing abt. 4 yrs later and buried there! She was Jas. 3rd wife!

James was the "black sheep" of the family, per cousin. He had a J.B.McKain Fishing Tool Oil Sup.Company in Roswell,also,had tried tracing to see how long there,since during depression.
Could you recommend a website for Roswell,NM company histories..I tried googling it in and the 1947 UFO incident always comes up!! That,too,was side-tracked!!

207 E 2nd 7 e N Atkison av-- was address in 1931,by 1935-ns E 2nd 10 e Atkison ave,under J.B.McKain Co.,Inc.
Again a BIG THANK YOU..Lois
