"Life Knowledge - Signed statement from Ralph Victor Kinkead b. 18 Sep 1928 (brother of Floyd Arthur Kinkead) and dated 4 Mar 2010 in which he states " Before my mother passed in 1973, my mother, Elizabeth Harriet McKlveen Herwick Kinkead b. 5 Dec 1898 told my sister and me in confidence that Floyd was the natural son of Charles William Kinkead. Up to that point, we had been told that he was our half brother, the son from her first marriage to Charles Leon Herwick. She wanted us to know before she died that Floyd was our full brother, fathered by Charles William Kinkead, who had abandoned her when she got pregnant. She married Charles Leon Herwick on 4 April 1918, and Floyd was born in October of that year (the same day Charles Herwick died in Camp Sherman, Ohio). Elizabeth eventually married Charles William Kinkead on 16 August 1921, and they had four more children (Anna Jane, Charles, Ralph and Edwin), but I didn't know until this conversation with my mother that our father was also the birth father of Floyd.
