1.  SAMUEL1 KINCAID  He married SARAH RHINEHART.

Generation No. 2

2.  WILLIAM2 KINCAID (SAMUEL1) was born Abt. 1740.  He married ANN POAGE OR GRAHAM Bef. 1767.  

Notes for WILLIAM KINCAID:  "While this connection (William father of James, Thomas and John) is not well documented, it is highly probable. Naming patterns of the Scotch-Irish of the time had the eldest son named for his paternal grandfather. The three brothers; James, Thomas, and John, (and I am convinced that they were brothers) each named his eldest son William. If James b.1767 is the eldest son as seems likely then in the next earlier generation (ca 1700) we should be seeking a James Kincaid. If William and his wife followed naming patterns exactly, we should belooking for a Thomas ? as her father and William should have a brother John".

Had 400 acres in Greenbriar in 1782,


3.                i.       JAMES3 KINCAID, b. 1767, Bath County, VA; d. 1828.

Notes for THOMAS KINCAID:  I came across a note saying Thomas was killed by Indians...I know that Edward Kincaid was killed by Indians, but am not sure about Thomas.

Marriage Notes for THOMAS KINCAID and MARTHA WYATT: Wedding performed by Rev. Christopher Clark.

                 iii.       JOHN KINCAID, b. May 8, 1771, Amherst, VA; d. September 28, 1814, Fincastle, Campbell Co., TN; m. NANCY YOUNG, October 17, 1796, Greenbriar, VA; b. October 7, 1779; d. January 29, 1822, Fincastle, Campbell Co., TN..


Generation No. 3

3.  JAMES3 KINCAID (WILLIAM2, SAMUEL1) was born 1767 in Bath County, VA, and died 1828.  He married MARGARET WYATT January 1, 1793 in Bath County, KY, daughter of ALCIBIADES WYATT and ANNE ROBINSON.  She was born 1774 in Greenbrier County, VA, and died 1831. 

Notes for JAMES KINCAID:  "JAMES had a land warrent for 34 acres of land along the branches of the Kentucky River in 1821. The 1830 census shows his wife Margaret in then Estill county as a widow, head of household. (Tallega was then in Estill Co., but now in Lee Co. The already compiled genealogy which Helen Shaefer had in her possession, states that the original land, the 34 acres belonging to James still belongs to Hugh Franklin. Later that part of the County which was then Estill became Owsley in 1843, and still later in 1870 it became Lee County.

If the birth dates on George B and Malinda prove true, it would mean that this family was in Kentucky as early as 1810. In the genealogy referred to above; George's birthdate was given as 1815; in the 1860 census he was listed as 49 years of age a discrepency of 4 yrs. On my recent stay in Kentucky I visited both Kincaid Cemeteries (branch with Edward W. in it, also Socrates Senior and Socrates Jr. and the Lycurgus branch which is further out the ridge by about two miles) in hopes that I would find the graves of James and Margaret but if they were at either place they were not identified. There were graves with natural stones which were old graves. Both of these cemeteries are at Fincastle and the land on which James supposedly first settled was at Tallega an the branches of the Ky. River. There is an old cemetery near there but it is so grown over you cannot get to the stones."  Source: Diane Kincaid, 3605 Arbor Dr., Lexington, KY 40517 e-mail:

 "James had thirty acres of land deeded to him by Patrick Henry in Virginia. Went to Kentucky in 1800"  Source:
