In 1884, Robert McCain, his brother-in-law Denphard Chappell, and William L. Newkirk went to Nebraska to homestead. Robert returned to Indiana for his family and their belongings, while the other two stayed to guard the land. Two boxcars were loaded with the furniture and farm equipment; Robert traveled on this train to Gothenburg, Nebraska. The letter stating when he would arrive had not reached Chappell and Newkirk, so Robert unloaded the boxcars himself. In doing so, his appendix ruptured and he died. His wife and her four girls arrived later to find that he had died. Adeline had two daughters, Mary and Martha, from her marriage to Mr. Sullivan.
