KinKade; KinKaid; 2 capital "K's"

I notice that Elizabeth KinKade has used 2 capital "K's" in the spelling of her name. Our KinKaid is spelled in the same manner. In reading your earlier posting, I would wonder if there might be some connection between your husband and my husband's families. My husband, Charles Ray KinKaid-born in Tennessee; his father, Charles Ray KinKaid, Sr.-born in Texas; his father, James Albert KinKaid-born probably in Cincinnati, Ohio, but less likely in Richmond, Ray County, Missouri; his father-James KinKaid-born in Ireland, married Sarah Dawson in Missouri, he served in the Union Army during the Civil War as a captain and served with the 5th Ohio Volunteer Infintry, they lived in Cincinnati; his father-Alexander KinKaid-born in Ireland, emmigrated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and later settled in Cincinnati and this Alexander has been listed in the 1860 and 1870 census' with his last name spelled KinKade in one and KinKaid in another. It's unusual for the name to be spelled with the two capital letters. Anyone out there who might think they're connected in some way?
