James B. McCain was born c. 1824 in Washington Parish, Louisiana and died c. 1863. He was the son of Edward McCain and Nancy Bennett. He married Mary "Polly" Hines, the daughter of Enoch Hines and Susannah Guy. She was born 10 March 1828 and died 23 March 1896 in Marion County, Mississippi. After James' death, Mary later married Seaborn W. Stogner, the son of Ezell Stogner and Martha Pigott. At present, I have very little knowledge of James B. McCain. I have located him on one federal census record- 1860 Washington Parish, Louisiana which shows James McCain along with wife Mary and children Rebecca J., William J., Edward, and Semion? B (Samuel).
