At the Canine family reunion to be held at Union church near Waveland, honor will be paid to Ralph Canine, the ancestor of most of the Canine families now living in the county. He was the father of 11 children, all of whom are dead now except JJ Canine, aged 75 who lives on the old home place, where his father settled on January 18, 1826 and a part of which was dedicated to Union church, the oldest church of the old school Baptist denomination in the county. Ralph Canine was born in Pennsylvania, Dec 3, 1789, and moved to Mercer County, Kentucky with his parents in 1794. He married Margaret Warmon in 1808 and after her death Nov 3, 1863, was married a second time on July 23 to Eliza Ann VanCleave. At the age of 27, Ralph Canine joined the old school Baptist Church and in 1827 was ordained a deacon in Kentucky when he moved to Indian he was the prime mover in the organization of the church and in fact the organization was effected in his home. Later when a church edifice was erected it was built on a part of his farm. He was elected a deacon for life. He was a typical pioneer one of that sturdy type that has done so much to make Montgomery County in this day a progressive and intelligent community. The reunion next Wednesday will be a notable event and not only the descendants of Ralph Canine will be made welcome but all other members of the Canine tribe and all friends of the family.
