Mecklenburg County was formed in 1763 from Anson County. At its formation it had no western boundary and an indeterminate southern boundary. It was bordered by Rowan County on the north and Anson county on the east. It therefore included the present Gaston, Rutherford and Polk (and other western counties not yet settled at the time) and all or part of the South Carolina counties of Spartanburg, Cherokee, Union, Chester, Youk and Lancaster. In 1764, the South Carolina border was surveyed east of the Catawba River, but the border west of the Catawba was not surveyed until 1772. In 1769, Tryon county was formed from the western part of Mecklenburg. (Tryon County was abolished in 1779, and Lincoln and Rutherford counties created).

Daniel Bain, a pioneer and leading farmer, was born August 28, 1827, in White County, the second of eleven children (two deceased) of Daniel and Nancy (Canada) Bain. The father of Scotch stock was born in 1794 in North Carolina, and the mother was born in Tennessee in 1803, and of the same origin. They settled in Illinois April 3, 1838, the mother's folks in White County, and were married about 1824. The father was in Tennessee first, and a soldier in the war of 1812 for three months. The mothers folks lived in a fort in Crawford County, on the Wabash River, for five years. When our subject was about two years old they moved to Vigo County, Ind. After ten years' farming there they came to Franklin County and settled on their farm in Northern Township, until 1858, when he bought a farm in the southwest corner of the same township, where the father died in 1869. The mother still lives with her youngest daughter, Mrs. Jasper Whittington. With limited educational advantages our subject remained at home until nearly twenty-four, and then returned to Vigo County, Ind., and married Eliza J., daughter of John and Polly (Kimball) Reese, born in that county about 1831. Their eleven children are Julia A. (deceased wife of John Britton), Mary E. (deceased), William A., Maraney C. (wife of Scott Roberson), Nancy E. (deceased), Millard F., Martha F. (wife of Henry Davis), Sarah E. (wife of E. Webb), Ora E., Rosetta (deceased) and Hester. His wife died in November, 1874, at our subject's present home. After farming therre until October he came to Franklin County and settled on the farm now owned by Alfred Groves. In 1858 he sold it, and after about nine months' merchandising settled on his present farm in Sections 29 and 30. In December, 1875, he married Sarah, widow of George W. Beaty, and daughter of Luke and Margaret (Rogers) Bosley. Their children are Ida, Daniel E. and Margaret C. His wiffe was born in 1839 in Jefferson County, IL. She had these children by her first husband: George W., Henry J., Frances M., Philip C., James W., Sarah E. and Eliza J. He has cleared two woodland farms somewhat, and now owns 277 acres, mostly improved and cultivated, and all fenced. He has acquired this from a beginning of nothing in the woods as a pioneer. Formerly a Whig, he has been a Republican since the war, and first voted for Taylor. He is a member of the Macedonia Lodge, I. O. O. F. and the F. M. B. A. and of the Methodist Episcopal Church, while his wife and one of her first husband's children, and William, Maraney, Fannie and Ora E. are members of the Missionary Baptist Church. Sarah E. belongs to the old Regular Baptist Church.

Geo. W. Bain was born in Phillips Twp, White Co., IL., July 6, 1828. His parents were Daniel and Susannah (Dozier-Ary) Bain. His father was born in Virginia, of Scotch descent. When a boy of fourteen he enlisted in the Revolutionary war and served four years - until close of that war; was in the battle of Bunker Hill. He was a member of the Old School Presbyterian church and died in 1838, aged 78. His mother was born in Virginia and was of German descent. She and her husband had both been married and had families of their own when they married; he had twelve and she six children, all living when they were married. They had a family of two sons and four daughters. Geo. W. was the second son and fifth child by this union. His father came to White County before Carmi was settled, in 1806. Geo. W. was about a year old when his father moved to Terre Haute, Ind. and remained nine years on a farm; then returned to Franklin Co., IL., where the father died. He then lived there until 1844, when his mother died. George then came to White County to his half brothers, John Ary, and followed farming with him one year, when he settled on his farm in Burnt Prairie Township, and two of his sisters kept house for him until his marriage to Adeline Madden Jan 5, 1851. She was born in Edwards County, IL., Dec 20, 1831, and was a daughter of Robert and Barbara (Thompson) Madden. Mr Bain still resides on his farm in Burnt Prairie, where he owns sixty acres, forty-five in Burnt Prairie and fifteen in Mill Shoals Twp.

Believe it or not these two men both lived in Vigo Co IN., and both of them had wives named Susannah, and both of them were close in age.
And the 1830 census of pensioners for Vigo Co IN lists a Daniel Bain, the Daniel who moved to Iowa. The Franklin Co Daniel Bain went from Wayne Co IL to Vigo Co IN, then to Franklin Co IL.
The other Daniel Bain went from Ohio to Vigo Co IN where he shows up on a pension list, then to Des Moines, Iowa. He also dies shortly thereafter and his wife Susannah stays there. I think with all the similarities that the two Daniel Bains got mixed up. I'm not sure our Daniel served in the Rev War at age 14. I can find no reference or proof that he served other than the White Co History and sometimes histories has mistakes in them. Possibly his father William served in some capacity.
