Norman was born in 1878 in Minnesota. In 1900, the Federal Census records indicate he was living in Township 153, McHenry, ND. The 1920 Census records show parents Norman and Harriet and their five children living in Pontiac, Cass County, ND. The 1930 census records report the McCains were living in Germantown, Wells County, ND, and Norman’s occupation was a railroad agent. The Manfred News from December 1932 announced that the new depot agent from Emrick, ND had arrived, and he and his wife are settled in their new home over the Soo Line Depot. Norman continued to serve as depot agent in Manfred until 1947.
