Will of Elizabeth Kincaid
Elizabeth, wife of John Kincaid, followed her husband in death in 18__. The terms of her and her husband's will, in which they appear to distinguish between "his children" and "her children" have led to the assumption that she was wife number two. John's first wife is also supposed to have been an Elizabeth.*28 The terms of (2nd wife's?) Elizabeth's will are abstracted as follows:
