    1. [KINCAID] Pauline Kincaid

    3. Hello Don: I’m writing about my Grandmother, Pauline Kincaid of Rome Georgia and later, after marrying my maternal grandfather, Dr. Rudolph Glaser of the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research in Princeton, New Jersey, became Pauline Glaser Kincaid. I’m the sole male heir to her Kincaid legacy being the son of her only daughter to bear children, the other being a daughter. Pauline had a twin brother, Ivon Kincaid who remained childless throughout his life with a wife named ‘Bertie’ in Texas where he was raised by his father Ivon. Pauline was sent to be raised by his father, a Dr. John Kincaid in Rome GA. In my interest in my Kincaid background, I went to visit the home of my ancestor in South Carolina, Captain James Kincaid and was kindly given a grand tour of the house and property. Having become besotted with a fellow Scot, the miss Mary McMorries who subsequently left for the United States with her family. James Kincaid spent the next year of his life desperate to re-unite with her and subsequently left for South Carolina where her family had settled. They immediately became engaged to marry. After their wedding, Mary McMorries, a cousin to King George of England, the King gifted the young couple some 4,000 acres of prime wooded land as a wedding gift where Captain James Kincaid, after harvesting the wood, planted and successfully grew cotton for export back to England and his home country of Scotland. I know that Captain James Kincaid became a Captain of infantry in the Revolutionary War where he distinguished himself against the British at the battle of Cowpens in South Carolina, he split his 4,000 acres with his brother John Kincaid who came to South Carolina to join him; on the 2,000 acres of land James gave to John, John also became a grower of cotton. John’s wood frame house and all of his outbuildings were all burned to the ground during Sherman’s march to the sea and nothing is left of his plantation but a historic marker on the property commemorating the site while virtually across the road and and perhaps a few hundred yards closer to town, Jame’s plantation buildings (made of granite and brick) all remain intact to this day and are lived in by a retired Medical Doctor from Ireland. My grandmother did no small amount of genealogy research on her family going back to Captain James Kincaid. I personally have gone to the Scottish Highland Games in Mesa, Arizona some years ago where I found a Kincaid booth and was able to talk to other Kincaids. I was told by the main genealogist at the booth that although they were aware of the South Carolina branch of the family, they knew next to nothing about them. Anyway, that’s most of what I know about my grandmother’s heritage hence my own. I would like to search a little further but sadly, the papers have become lost to me. My sister who inherited my mother’s home claims the paperwork, as she knew it, cannot be located. Would you have any suggestions of where to pick up where my grandmother left off and continue her research, I’m not an experienced genealogical researcher.
