Disposition of Land from Chalkley's:

Samuel Kincaid sold the land he acquired from his father-in-law, George Wilson before 1788, as listed below:

Samuel and Elizabeth were living in Hardin County, Kentucky (Source K53) NOTE: Although the transcription of this deed says 1790, I think the Clerk left off the word "five" and it must be 1795.

On August 26, 1811 Samuel accepted Nancy Dennis, an eleven year old orphan of Absalom Dennis as a Spinster Apprentice. (K5) "This Indenture made this 26th day of August 1811 Witnesseth that John H.

Page 104 - A second indenture between the same parties and same witnesses dated the same day for 700 acres for two thousand dollars. The difference between the value of the two properties is that the one for 200 acres is on the Donaldson river and the one for 700 acres is not. (K17)

The following is found in the "Combined History of Edwards, Lawrence and Wabash Counties, Illinois", published in 1883. "The township of Lukin, in Lawrence County, is bounded on the north by Christy and Bridgeport, on the east by Dennison, and on the south and west respectively by Wabash and Richland counties. The surface was originally, for the most part, of timber. Lukins and Ruarks prairies were open areas. Bonpas and Little Raccoon creek receive many tributaries within the borders of the township, and supply water and drainage. This portion of the county began to receive settlements about 1816. The Ruark family came in 1816, and Jacob Schrader arrived in 1817. Samuel Kinkaid arrived in 1819. Samuel Kinkaid was a native of New Jersey, to which his father and mother came, at an early day, from Ireland. The former [Samuel's father] was there killed by Indians, and the mother and three of the children were led captive and taken west. Samuel escaped entirely, but the youngest of the children were dashed against a tree and killed. The mother was recovered from her captors at Kaskaskia by a French trader named Larchette, who afterward married her. By the provisions of a treaty the three captive boys were set at liberty. About 1760, Samuel, in company with an Indian guide, passed the northern part of Lawrence county in search of his mother and brothers, and made his way to Kaskaskia, where he found the former. Samuel served as a soldier in the army of the revolution, was an Indian fighter, and always lived on the frontier. In 1819, he came to Lawrence County with three sons, Hugh, William and George, and a daughter Ealsa Miller, a widow with eight children. Hugh and William settled in the extreme northeast corner of Lukin township, and George settled in Allison. Ealsa Miller settled in Bridgeport. William was a Christian minister, and was the first to preach in the old Spring Hill church. Samuel died a short time after his arrival at the age of eighty-seven years. He bore on his body the scars of five wounds received from the Indians. When Samuel moved to Illinois, he brought with him his sons George Wilson, William, Hugh and a widowed daughter Ealsa (Alcy) Miller."
