John McMahan Fain

Lucinda Fain married James V. A. Woods [an Acklin descendant]; she was the daughter of War of 1812 Colonel John McMahan Fain and his wife, Mary A. Bicknell.  A family tree named John's parents as William and Sallie (McMahan) Fain; William's parents were Nicholas and Elizabeth (Taylor) Fain [also the parents of John Fain who was killed on August 8, 1788].  

Sanctified Trial: The Diary of Eliza Rhea Anderson Fain, a Confederate Woman .., by Eliza Rhea Anderson Fain, mentioned that "In 1782 Nicholas and his son Captain John Fain...obtained land grants in eastern Tennessee."  "John was killed by Indians in Tennessee on August 8, 1788...". 

Lucinda's father? Questionable, since there were other (related) men named John Fain.  Perhaps the one mentioned here (same as the one referenced below)?
