Cain, Vincent (Unknown - September 1, 1928)


End Comes on Train Enroute to Omaha

Douglas Budget - September 6, 1928

Vincent Cain, who was terribly burned two weeks ago when a can of kerosene he was using ignited and exploded, died on a Burlington trail Saturday morning near Grand Island, Neb. He was being taken to his old home at Omaha. The nature of his injuries made his recovery doubtful from the outset.

Mr. Cain was a resident of this county for about nine years, having homesteaded north of Douglas. Later he moved to town and for a number of years resided here. He has recently been engaged in the insurance business. He saw service in the World war, having enlisted from Omaha. He was 36 years of age.

He is survived by his wife, Alice Larkin Cain; two daughters, Rita, 7 and Cecilia, 1 year; his father, Henry Cain, Omaha; four sisters, Mrs. Harvey Morse, Council Bluffs, Mrs. T.M. Connors, Imogene, Ia., Miss Delia Cain and Mrs. Michael Larkin of Omaha; four brothers, John of Casper, S.M. of Moberly, Mo., Henry of Omaha and A.L. of Lisco, Neb.

Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at St. John's church in Omaha. Burial was in that city.
