Robert Palmer Main, born in Stonington, Conn., and Cordelia Dakin Main, born in Clinton County, Ohio, came to Wisconsin in 1845 in a covered wagon, settling on a farm three miles south of Oregon.
Miss Mary Frances Main, daughter of R. P. and Cordelia Dakin Main, was born July 27, 1839 at Oakland, Clinton County, Ohio, on the same farm as her mother. The farm is still owned by relatives.
EDWIN DAKIN MAIN, a resident of the village of Oregon, was born November 3, 1847, being a native of Dane county and of the town wherein he has spent all the years of his useful life. His father, Robert P. Main, was born in North Stonington, Conn., and his grandfather, Rial Main, was a native of the same state. Tracing still farther back we find that the great-grandfather of our subject, whose name was David Main, was a captain in the Revolutionary War.
