I prepared the following graphic for one of my daughters to show her our (R-A321 Kincaids) apparent migration route throughout history. This incorporates what we know so far. It includes a couple of recent ancient dna findings of R-321 predecessors (i.e. R-Z346) that were part of the Viking world.
Lennox Castle was built by a Kincaid near the Kincaid lands in Scotland-Lennoxtown. Is anyone out there interested in helping me and a group to save it? It is possible to get funding to help with this.
I tried to post a phylogenetic tree for Group A Kincaids yesterday, but it turned out to be unreadable because of the size. Above is the Fluxus chart I was working from. It is smaller so perhaps more readable. However, the tree takes into account genealogies for some alternative connections. If interested in it, contact me at jwkjgp (at) gmail (dot) com.
I'm looking for my biological family and Y DNA shows Kincaid, but I have yet to find a Kincaid in my other DNA matches. I've tested with Ancestry, 23 and Me and Family Tree DNA (where I found Kincaid at a level 1-3 matches). This is an older picture of me, I'm the adult male in the picture. I was born July 1950 in St Louis Missouri. Any help would be appreciated. I've found Quinley, Reeder, Stanfield/ Stanfill, Abney and other surnames in my tree through atDNA matches.
Kincaid, Fayette County, West Virginia named after the Kincaid family that first settled the area
This is discussed at length in a separate post, a few minutes ago. The weakness of the type near the right margin of this second page was in the original that I copied in 1973.

Broad sharing of early family Bible entries is a good thing. But this one has caused a lot of trouble, in a few cases for more than a century. The original transcription (and I believe the ONLY one by a person who was looking at the actual Bible in question, rather than one of these typescripts) was done in 1909. Both of these versions were contributed by the same person, Mrs. G. Ryland Scott. She lived in Ft. Lauderdale, FL when she sent the longer, notarized copy to genealogists in Kentucky (1934 or later); and in Norfolk, VA when she wrote the 1928 letter that I copied at the TN State Library, around 1974. The same principal error is made in both transcriptions; but it is more obvious at the end of the 1928 letter, because a longer version of the error is supplied: "David Kinkead, son of John and Elizabeth Kinkead" has been read from the birth entries, and copied into the sentence about the Bible having been given to Elizabeth by her father [insert error] in 1756. [Her father was Robert Logan, as proven by his Oct. 1787 will, recorded Jan. 1791 in Washington County, Virginia Will Book 1, p. 166. Her mother was Bethiah -- and John Kinkead was Robert Logan's son-in-law -- per the same will.] I have cleaned up my 45 year old xerox copies, annotated them in red, and photographed them digitally to share here. (Sharing photos was not an option on the Rootsweb Kincaid group.) I have made a number of marginal comments on the 1928 letter, because the naming sequence helps to prove that this John Kinkead (b. 1736) is the son mentioned in the will of the David whose wife was Winifred Hobson. As I mentioned on another post, the estate of this John Kinkead was settled in Clark County, KY in Dec. 1821, and the administrator was Simpson McMurry (Sallie Kinkead's illegitimate son, born in KY four years after her husband Samuel McMurry was killed by Indians near Buchanan's Station, now Donelson, TN). Simpson McMurry is my gr-gr-gr-grandfather. And I have autosomal DNA matches with several descendants of Sallie Kinkead's brothers, particularly Hopson.
My photo of the Elk Garden Fort marker was facing north. I turned around at the same location for this shot facing south, since the marker says the fort was to the south. Perhaps it was on the hill behind that school and community center. I didn't see any other signage about it.
Last fall my wife and I visited the area in which her ancestors named Litton were in the same frontier fort as my ancestors named Kinkead. This would be the John Kinkead whose wife was Elizabeth Logan. I notice that the current marker (installed in 2015) has demoted him from Captain to Sergeant. He was called Capt. on the 1989 version of the monument, which may be seen here: http://photos.historical-markers.org/Virginia/Russell-County/VA-X9-Elk-Garden-Fort
