  1. Hello. I am looking for any kind of info on the Cain family that used to live west of Oakes, many years ago. early 1900’s. I’m not even sure of the spelling of the name.
    do you have any city history books that maybe would have the owners name of that farm????
    My family used to live there, would like to connect with some of their families. thank you. C&C

  2. Check with Dickey County Historical Society or Library of Congress’s Chronicling America – they have digital archives of newspapers that you can search through.
