John Kincaid b. Abt. 1730 d. Abt. 1811-12 Bath County, Virginia m. Elizabeth

Parents unknown

What is known:
John Kincaid was known as John of Bath.. It is possible,. but not proven, that John had two wives named Elizabeth.. The name Kincaid is spelled Kinkead on John and Elizabeth's will. The book "A History of Highland County Virginia" by Oren F. Morton, B.L. spells the name as Kincaid.

Changes in Local Governmental Entities:
Although the land has not changed over time, the jurisdictional boundaries of local governmental entities has changed over time:

In 1761 when John Kincaid acquired land on the Cowpasture River, the Cowpasture River was located within the jurisdictional boundaries of Augusta County, Virginia.

In 1791 Bath County was formed out of Augusta County and Pocahontas County. With that change the Cowpasture River was then located within the jurisdictional boundaries of Bath County, Virginia. (PS. Since other John Kincaid's existed in Augusta County, that jurisdictional change most likely gave John the name "John of Bath" to differentiate him from the other John(s)).

In 1847 Highland County was formed out of Bath County and Pendleton County. With that change the portion of the Cowpasture River containing John Kincaid's original land was then located within the jurisdictional boundaries of Highland County, Virginia (PS. When West Virginia split off of Virginia in the 1860's, both Pocahontas County and Pendleton County went with West Virginia. The remainder of Augusta County, the remainder of Bath County, and Highland County remained in Virginia) Geographical Perspective: For reference, the Shenandoah Mountain is situated to the East of the Cowpasture River, and the Bullpasture Mountain is situated to the West of the Cowpasture River. John of Bath's land was situated on both the East side and the West side of the Cowpasture River. John of Bath's will leaves the land above Lick Creek to his son David, the land below Little Draft Run to his son Ferdinand, and the remainder of his land to his son Charles L. So Charles L. received the land in the middle, that is the land in between Lick Creek and Little Draft Run. The land that Charles L. received, then was the pre-eminent portion of the property since it included the manor home and curtilage. Both Ricky's land and my upper tract are located between Lick Creek and Little Draft Run.
(PS. The word "above" as used herein means "in a more Northerly direction"; and, the word "below" as used herein means "in a more Southerly direction".)
