Information on Rev. John Kincaid

From "The Kincaid Family" by Richard Bradley (e-mail: richardbrabazon@@email.msn.com) http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Plains/7410/kincaidchapter.htm

John Kincaid, Clerk, of New London, Chester Co. PA. He was an adult and an ordained minister by 1745 so he was probably born in 1720 or earlier. His wife was apparently named Annie. He purchased land in Orange County, Virginia in 1745, although there is no evidence that he lived in Virginia at the time. He came from Ireland as a licensed Presbyterian minister at some time before or during 1753 at which time he appeared in Pennsylvania records. It appears he was in Chester Co., Pennsylvania until about 1766 when he appeared in Augusta Co., VA records. He seems to have had difficulties with his neighbors which may explain his disappearance from the Augusta County records by the year 1769. He may have returned to Pennsylvania.
