Samuel Kincaid’s possible father,: John Kinkead of Sadsbury, Chester Co. PA

A Samuel Kincaid was taxed in Sadsbury as a single man in 1757 and a married man 1758-65. He was taxed in West Caln (adjacent township) 1765-1772. This Samuel fits in age and possible marriage year. His disappearance from West Caln in 1772 coincides with Samuels 1772 purchase of Poplar Quarter in Fawn, York Co. PA. There is a close DNA match with #37382 and #8144 both of whom believe descent from John of Sadsbury. Definative proof is being sought.
