John, I've just spent a very enjoyable time at your archived website -- what wonderful work you've done!
I hope you won't let this site fade away -- could you put on Rootsweb's freepages? It's such a wonderful resource!
If the researchers whose work I'm following is correct, I'm descended from Mary Wickliffe Kincheloe and Capt. Richard Simpson (I'm also descended from Richard's brother George, but that's another story!) The Kincheloe-Simpson daughter Lydia married Zaccheus Tate; their daughter Jenney married George R Smith Dec 20 1800 Caswell Co NC (later Muhelnberg Co KY). I am descended from George and Jenney's son Peter, who married Matilda Montgomery about 1825 Posey co IN, then went to Franklin co IL.
The deep historical work you've done is invaluable. I was not able to access your 'Origins' at first. Then I cut-and-pasted the Origins shortcut into my browser window, which took me to the 'archives' site. The arcives site let me search on your filename (this was provided as an option, I didn't have to figure it out!). The search brought up many, many files -- but among them I found nine pages of the 'Origins' text (.htm suffix). I copied them out for later reading. (Sorry to be lengthy -- I included all this in case other people want to find the files.)
Again, I really hope you'll try to find a way to insure that all your good work stays online and available.
By the way -- I found a 'Consella' who signed the 'Cumberland Compact', the agreement entered into by all the men who went with the Donelson/Robertson party to settle 'French Lick', Davidson Co TN (current Nashvile) in 1780. This settlement effort was phase two of the Richard Henderson 'Transylvania Purchase' colonization attempt -- phase one being the Daniel Boone/Boonesborough settlement in KY, which went bust after the George Rogers Clark/Patrick Henry party managed to overthrow the validity of land claims under the Henderson Purchase. Since many of my Smith-simpson-Tates were part of Henderson's endeavors, I wondered if 'Consella' was a Kincheloe.
