Leslie Harris McCain (1890-1979) was born in Montgomery County Mississippi. Also seen in the photo is his mother, sister, and niece.  The photo taken circa 1910 reflects the hard times in rural Mississippi for many, a legacy of the Civil War and the harsh military occupation of Mississippi which lasted into the 1870s. Leslie Harris McCain was a descendant of Hugh McKean and their family left north Antrim County, Ireland, circa 1718 for the New World. The grandson of Leslie Harris McCain, Barry Reid McCain, was the first McCain in his line to return to north Antrim after 289 years away.  Leslie McCain was a fine farmer and faithful husband to Pearl Tweedy McCain; he lived a quite rural life for many years in Madison County, Mississippi.

Templastragh - Templastra Ancient Church is located a mile east of Dunseverick Castle. The structure is mentioned in accounts of the life of St. Patrick and dates to the earliest days of Christianity in Ireland. On northwest corner is the famous McCain Stone, a standing stone with a unique Circle Cross icon, which is now set in the corner of the church itself. The interior of Templastra has the grave of William McCain who was born in the early 1700s. Templastragh was the Irish graveyard in Dunseverick and surrounding area.
