Mary Margret Kincaid is listed marrying Elijah Nelson under the wrong first name. They have her name as Nancy; this is Incorrect. This is located at the marriage bond for Greenbrier, WVA historical Society. A nice bunch of folks are helping me and have sent me this original marriage bond. I, and several others have transcribed this document. This indeed is Mary not Nancy. Samuel Kincaid is her father and John Kincaid is listed on the bond. Samuel had a brother and an uncle named John Kincaid. . Mary M. was born about 1796. The date would make sense for her to be the daughter of Samuel Kincaid/Mary Tincher. Elijah Nelson is listed on several land deeds with Samuel Kincaid and others,as well as his dad,John Nelson, which proves he was in Greenbrier co. at this time as well. They moved into Pendleton, VA (now WV).
