There are a number of documents in Lawrence and Giles County naming Thomas G. Kincaid as the son of Landon and Francis “Fanny” Griffis Kincaid. When Landon died he owned a tract of land containing 100 acres. Thomas purchased this land and then later sold the tract making a profit that angered his brothers and sisters. They filed for their share of the profit feeling they too deserved a portion. This was in court many, many years. It even continued after Thomas G. Kincaid’s death. Only one record is recorded below:

Complainants stated that Landon Kincaid died in August or September of 1855 in Lawrence County, intestate. He died owning a tract containing 100 acres. On January 1, 1859 Thomas G. Kincaid filed a Petition to sell the land. On September 10, 1859 the land was sold under orders of county Court and was purchased by Thomas G. Kincaid. In 1860 Kincaid sold the land to J. F. Wasson. Complainants said the sale of land by Kincaid had been very profitable to him and they brought Attachment & Injunction proceedings against Thomas G. Kincaid, John Moore, J. F. Wasson and Frank Henry.
