    Chronicle 

    • MR. J. KAIN

      Mr. John Kain, an old Millicent identity, died at Hamilton on Monday. He was born at Liverpool in 1857. His parents had left Ireland to join a ship at Liverpool, en route for Australia, and while they were awaiting the boat there John was born, and he made the voyage to the antipodes as an infant in arms, in the ship Donald Malcolm, which was wrecked on the return voyage to England. The family arrived in South Australia in 1857, and settled at Mount Barker until 1864, when they removed to The Springs, near Mount Gambler. In 1872 the father came to the Millicent district, and took up land at Snuggery, where he died nearly 50 years ago. Mr. John Kain remained with his parents until manhood, and then obtained possession of land on the Wyrie, now owned by Mr. A. M. Kealy. At the first sale by auction of the reclaimed lands in the Mount Muirhead portion of the Millicent district, on August 12, 1879, he purchased a block near the Avenue, now owned by Mr. J. A. Schulz. The same year he married Miss Mary Bennett, eldest daughter of the late Mr. J. B. Bennett. About 20 years ago Mr. Kain disposed of his interests at Millicent, and settled on a large grazing property, 'Avenue Dale,' at Coleraine, Victoria, where he had more than average success as a grazier. He leaves a widow, and a family of three sons and four daughters. He was a brother of Mr. J. E. Kain, of Millicent.
