William Kincaid -tailor-Lexington, VA 1870 -b.about 1798

Who is the William Kainkaid age 72; born VA; tailor; listed on the 1870 Lexington, Rockbridge Co., VA census?

In 1870 he is married to 'Jane' age 71 born VA.
and has a young lady named Lizzie J. McDonald age 18 b. VA residing in home.

Four households past this family is that of Henry W. Byrd/Bird. In this family is his wife, Sarah A. and daughter Charity Bird.

We skip ahead to 1880 and discover [again, in Lexington, Rockbridge Co., VA] William Kinkaid age 82 with a new young wife; Charity age 26 b. VA

Also in the Kindaid house are Cora L. age 6 - daughter and William H. age 3 - son.

Rounding out this family is
Mary J. Page, niece age 7 b. VA
Sarah A. Byrd, mother-n-law, age 62 b. VA.

Logic says that the neighbor on the 1870 census, Wm. Kainkaid married Charity Byrd/Bird after her father's death around 1873. We believe that Charity's mother is Sarah A. Gillespie, a daughter of Roland Gillespie and granddaughter of Sherod Moore Gillespie.

Can anyone add to this thought?
