Information on George Kincaid
From Rootsweb.com post:
II. GEORGE KINCAID, second son of Alexander Kincaid, of Edinburgh, Scotland, married there (name of wife un-known), and came to America with his three brothers in 1746. He located first in Cumberland County, near Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and later settled in what is now Alleghany County, Virginia near Falling Springs. Here in 1756, he was killed in an Indian raid, and his wife and three sons captured by the savages. They were returned to civilization in 1764 under the terms of the Boquet Treaty. After his death in 1756, John Dean was appointed to settle his estate. (Two daughters of Dean were later married to sons of Robert Kincaid).
- A. His son, William Kincaid (born in Scotland), and his two younger brothers, Andrew born in 1748, and ARCHIBALD born in 1750, after their return from captivity among the Indians, grew to manhood in the Kincaid settlement along Jackson River in Virginia. William Kincaid married Elizabeth Wilson, daughter-of Colonel George Wilson. He was a lieu-tenant in the Virginia Militia in 1774, and was wounded in the arm in a fight with the Indians. He and his family of seven. children, and the two younger brothers moved bark to Pennsylvania. Soon afterward both Andrew and Archibald Kincaid en-listed for service in the Revolutionary War, and were in 'the Pennsylvania Militia."
- Note - I do not have the war record of Andrew Kincaid, but the record of my direct ancestor, Archibald Kincaid I shall give later along with land and tax listings. The many Kincaids listed in the Archives in Washington (I selected only a few at random to list), are no doubt some of the sons of William Kincaid. Both Andrew and Archibald Kincaid married soon after the close of the war and reared large families. They married sisters and it seems that all through life the two brothers were very closely knit together. I regret that I do not have a fuller record of Andrew Kincaid and his family who no doubt remained in central Kentucky.
- B. Andrew Kincaid married Martha Townsley.
- C. Archibald Kincaid married Janet Townsley.
