Family Lore;
It was told to me and my brothers and sister by our father Amon L Kincaid Sr. that his grandfather James B Kincaid's parents were murdered when he was just a young child.James B Kincaid told his son George William Kincaid of the tragedy of his parents and it was passed down to our father Amon L Kincaid Sr by his father George William Kincaid.Our father told us that he was told that his grandfather was hiding in the bushes and watched while his parents were murdered, it was believed to have happened after the Civil War had ended.We were also told that the older son or sons had went off to war. It was written in a family bible of my dads cousin (Samuel James Hamm) that James B Kincaid was then taken to Indian Territory by uncles Hughes (brother of Tom Hughes) and McGhee.Furthermore our uncle Kelly Kincaid told the family in July 1987 that their grandfathers mothers last name was Hughes.

The following supports this lore;

Son of: unproven
Likely parents: Hobson Kincaid and Sarah McClure

What is known:

1820 Census Franklin Co, TN (only other Kincaid in County)
Hopson Kingcade 1m 45+, 1m 26-45, 2m 16-26, 1m 10-16, 1f 45+, 1f 16-26, 1f 10-16

Hobson Kincaid was the son of John Kincaid and Elizabeth Logan and grandson of David Kincaid and Winifred Hobson of Albemarle Co. VA. The Family Bible that was given to Elizabeth Logan Kincaid in 1756 by her father (sic, father-in-law) David Kincaid, lists Hobson's birth as Nov. 24 1763.

There is strong circumstancial reason to believe that dna participant 28835 is a des.of John/Elizabeth Logan's son Robert. Amon's DNA matches #28835's DNA at all but 1 marker. The match includes 2 significant mutations. The 1st, a 12 at marker 26 (DYS 460) places them in A-1b along with a descendent of Joseph Kincaid of Albemarle Co. VA, possible brother to David. The 2nd, an 11 at marker 4 (DYS 391), is unique in A-1b. The unmatched results show a step up and a step down from the group A AVV at volitile marker 34 (CDYa).
