Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, Donna. I've just spent a couple of hours compiling a bunch of information which won't fit in the alloted space given here for answering. So I'll try to briefly give you a little more info. My husband's oldest known ancestor was Alexander KinKaid, supposedly born in County Tyrone, Ireland in 1810. He died in Cincinnati in 1891. His siblings were George, James and Isabella KinKaid. Alexander was married first to Jane Scott, born in 1810, died 1844 in Cincinnati. Their children were my husband's ggrandfather, James KinKaid, born April 16, 1832 and died March 8, 1864 in Cincinnati. He was married to Sarah Dawson on November 9, 1851 in Richmond, Ray County, Missouri. Their children were my husband's grandfather, James Albert KinKaid born in either Cincinnati or Ray County, Missouri on March 14, 1857. He married his first cousin, Ida May Bunch in Dallas, Texas on March 19, 1890. Their children were my husband's father, Charles Ray KinKaid, born February 14, 1895 in Houston, Tx. and died November 20, 1951 in Waxahachie, Tx.; Ola KinKaid born 1891 in Dallas and Ora KinKaid born 1903 in either Houston or Dallas. Back to Alexander and Jane, their other children were Mary KinKaid born 1834 married William Hall, no other information; Anna Jeannette KinKaid born 1840 in Philadelphia, married Charles Henry Ware and died in Cincinnati in 1902; Alexander KinKaid, Jr. born 1843, died 1869, no other information. Alexander, Sr. married second Mary Livingstone and their children were Samuel KinKaid born July 1845, died November 8, 1872, no further information; and Sarah and Isabella KinKaid, both died as young children. A couple of weeks ago I realized that my husband's grandfather, James Albert KinKaid lived at 2618 Crawford (corner of Dennis Ave.) in Houston in 1894/1895. Then I noticed that William J. Kinkaid and wife Margaret lived at 1309 Dennis Ave. in Houston in 1917. She is the founder of the well known Kinkaid school in Houston. Because of the Dennis Avenue connection between James Albert and William J., I then have to wonder if they might have been related. Like you, I've been searching all across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Missouri, Texas and even Canada for my husband's KinKaid family. I don't know if any of the dates I've given you will help or not, but sure wish we could tie in somewhere. Hopefully someone else might read this message and find a connection for one or both of us. Good Luck.
