Advisory on John Kincaid

Caution, this John Kincaid has been sometimes confused with another John Kincaid, son of David Kincaid of Albemarle County, who lived in Albemarle County, Virginia and married Elizabeth Logan. This John Kincaid lived in Augusta (and later Bath) County, Virginia and died in Bath County, VA on 2 July, 1801. It is now known how this John Kincaid is related to the other Kincaids of the Calfpasture of Augusta County, more research is necessary. Based upon the will of John and his second wife Elizabeth (possibly Hamilton), it is fairly evident which children came from each marriage of John Kincaid (see placement of John Kincaid's children, below)

Early Land Acquisitions in Augusta County, VA

As listed in the Land Record, below, John Kincaid acquired land (530 acres) in the "Calfpasture" area of Augusta County, Virginia in 1754:

Will of John Kincaid

The will of John Kincaid of Bath County, Virginia was dated July 2nd, 1801, and was probated in court at Bath County in April, 1813. The will is abstracted as follows:

ITEM: To wife Elizabeth, all movable property and living on my lands during her life.
ITEM: To my four sons, Andrew, John, Robert and James, and to daughter Isable who married Thomas Kinkead, $5.00 each together with what they have already have got to be their share of my estate.
ITEM: To son William, 332 acres on Eagle Creek, Fayette Ky.
NOTE: 332 is exactly half of the 664 acres John purchased in 1783. The land was originally in Fayette Co., but was actually in Woodford Co. at the time of the will.
ITEM: To son David, land I live on, above Lick Run, on a straight course to Bull Pasture Mountain.
ITEM: To son Ferdinand, land below Little Draft Run on a straight line to Bull Pasture Mountain.
ITEM: To son Charles L., all of the remaining land between the above two runs with the improvements thereon.
ITEM: Son Isaac to have his living on my lands during his life.
[Abstract of Wills and Inventories of Bath County, 1791-1842, Bruns, pg. 64].

Elizabeth, wife of the above John Kincaid, followed her husband in death in 1813. 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:

... I Elizabeth Kinkead of Bath County and commonwealth of Virginia relict and Widow of the late John Kinkead of said county and state ...

ITEM: Negro Sally to live on place I now live with my son Charles L. in order to attend to my son Isaac.
ITEM: Negro Jack, son of Sally, to my son Ferdinand, his heirs.
ITEM: To son Charles L., my negro Else.
ITEM: To my daughter Isabela, my negro Milly and after her death to become property of Isabela's daughter Betsey.
ITEM: To son Charles L. his heirs, my negro boy Harry.
ITEM: Negro man George to care for son Isaac as long as he lives, then to be sold and price divided equally between my three sons David, Ferdinand and Charles L.
ITEM: To grand daughter Betsey, dau. of Ferdinand, the bed and furniture I now occupy.
ITEM: Rest of my property and cattle to be sold and distributed as follows:
First, the legacies left by my late husband to his five children Andrew, John, Robert, James and daughter Isable to be paid out of the proceeds and the residue as follows:
To sons Andrew, John, Robert or his heirs, James and William, $1.00., balance I will to my three sons David, Ferdinand and Charles L. and their heirs. Two cows are to be left for my son Isaac.
I appoint my three sons, David, Ferdinand and Charles L. as executors.

Placement of John Kincaid's Children in his Two Marriages

By studying the will of John Kincaid's second wife, Elizabeth (possibly Hamilton), it is fairly easy to place his children with the correct spouse:

I Elizabeth Kinkead of Bath County and commonwealth of Virginia relict and Widow of the late John Kinkead of said county and state ... 

ITEM: Negro Sally to live on place I now live with my son Charles L. in order to attend to my son Isaac.(Note: Isaac was apparently retarded or disabled based upon the reference in both John and Elizabeth's will)

ITEM: Negro Jack, son of Sally, to my son Ferdinand, his heirs.

ITEM: To son Charles L., my negro Else.

ITEM: To my daughter Isabela, my negro Milly and after her death to become property of Isabela's daughter Betsey.

ITEM: To son Charles L. his heirs, my negro boy Harry.

ITEM: Negro man George to care for son Isaac as long as he lives, then to be sold and price divided equally between my three sons David, Ferdinand and Charles L.

ITEM: To grand daughter Betsey, dau. of Ferdinand, the bed and furniture I now occupy.

ITEM: Rest of my property and cattle to be sold and distributed as follows:

First, the legacies left by my late husband to his five children Andrew, John, Robert, James and daughter Isable (Note that there was an Isabela in the second marriage and Isabele in the first marriage) to be paid out of the proceeds and the residue as follows:

To sons Andrew, John, Robert or his heirs, James and William (sons of John's first marriage), $1.00., balance I will to my three sons David, Ferdinand and Charles L. and their heirs. Two cows are to be left for my son Isaac.

I appoint my three sons, David, Ferdinand and Charles L. as executors.
