Does anyone have any knowledge or information on a JOSEPH KINCAID md. ELIZABETH _______? Arrived in Washington County, Arkansas in the year 1842, from Jackson County, Alabama. Believe he died between years 1842 and 1849. Joseph's father was HOBSON KINCAID and his mother was SARAH McCLURE. He is not on the 1850 fed. census but his wife Elizabeth and his son, Sherod are living in Franklin County, Arkansas
My great grandfather was James Brookins KINCAID. He was born 1858 in Newton County, Arkansas to Sherod KINCAID and Jane HUGHS. He witnessed his parents getting murdered by Indians or Bushwhackers when he was nine years old, during the year 1867, on their 40 acre farm, in Newton County, Arkansas. I believe he was taken (by his two uncles, Hughs and McGee) to live with the McGee's in Indian Teritory. The Hughs uncle is identified as "brother of Tom Hughs". There is no given name for the McGee uncle. This same Hughs family was related to John Hughs that shot and killed a preacher in Pope County, Arkansas during the 1880's. The boy's father, Sherod Kincaid, was first married to Jane's older sister, Eliza Hughs but she died in 1850, giving birth to her third son. Sherod then married Eliza's sister, Jane Hughs. Both Hughs women were born in Alabama. The Kincaid family came from Jackson County, Alabama in 1842. Sherod Kincaid was born in Tennessee Abt. 1821. Jane Hughs was born Abt. 1834 and Eliza Hughs was born Abt. 1825.
