Thank you very much Len for the lookups.  Hard bunch to crack.  One actually 
went to Australia and great grandsons were living in Melbourne in the 1950s.

William Kincaid Sr. died in Silverhill in 1864.  Who knows where he is buried 
then.  I have not yet located his son William, but he probably went to 
Manitoba, Canada where his wife, Nancy McFarlane, had family.

I have no idea what became of John Kincaid and Sarah Kincaid who were in Ballee 
in the Griffiths Valuation.

There seems to have been two James Kincaids.  The first James was the father of 
David Kincaid (born c1829 Dec 1904) of Holyhill who married Ann Jane Sharkey 
(1834-Oct 1996) and went to Geelong, Victoria, Australia.  They are buried in 
Geelong Western Public cemetery.  They had Ann Jane (m. Frank Richard Smith), 
Mary Rebecca (m. Richard Walter Smith), John James Kincaid (1862 - 22 Mar 
1889), and David Kincaid.  The latter married Frances Caroline Logan and later 
Annie Elisa Batson.  By his first wife he had Frances Adeline Kincaid who died 
an infant.  By his second wife he had William Lambert Kincaid, Annie Louise 
Kincaid (m. Albert Stanley Northfield), and Ethelwyn Frances Kincaid (m. Edward 
Martin Walsh).  William Lambert Kincaid married Constance Marjory Glenister and 
moved to Melboune, Australia.  He died in 1951 leaving sons John Holman Kincaid 
and William Kincaid.  I lose track of the sons.  Len, since you are also in 
Melbourne, if you know anything of the sons John Holman Kincaid and William 
Kincaid, please let me know.

The other James Kincaid (c1817-1880) was in Ballee when he married Margaret 
Caton on 1857.  She died in 1874 and he was in Keenaghan when he remarried to 
Susan (Black) Nixon later that year.  They had Margaret (died young) and James 
(born in 1878).  James the father died in 1880 and his widow and son lived in 
Holyhill where they are recorded in the 1901 census.  However, James had 
married Mary Kee in 1899 and they had Mary Jane, James Alexander (died an 
infant), Maggie, and John Augustine/Gustavus, James Thomas, Sarah Kathleen, 
Annie Evisena, Fanny Edith, and Anne Martha Elizabeth Kinkaid.  The wife and 
children appear in Holyhill in the household of Alexander Kee in the 1911 
census while James is recorded with his mother Susan in Dergalt, Camus Parish 
in the same census.  While it appears James Jr. and Mary Jane Kee separated, 
they did not as the last 4 are born in Holyhill after 1911.

Thomas Kincaid of Holyhill (in Griffiths) was married to a Mary Ann who died at 
Holyhill on 7 May 1866.  It looks like they had a daughter Lucinda who married 
John Stevenson on 18 October 1866.

Thanks again Len for your help!

Hello Peter,

Graveyards checked are Leckpatrick Old Burial Ground (map and inscriptions), 
Patrick Street (Old Camus parish) Graveyard, Strabane (inscriptions and burial 
register), Grange Old Burial Ground, Donagheady Parish (inscriptions and map), 
Old Donagheady Graveyard, Benowen, Donemana (inscriptions) and Old Glendermot 
Graveyard, Glendermot, Co. Londonderry (inscriptions) and there is not a single 
reference to any Kinkaids (or variants).

Referring to the 1863 list of stipend payers for Leckpatrick Presbyterian 
congregation you mention; I looked up my copy (from the Presbyterian Historical 
Society, Belfast) and note that neither William nor James Kincaid actually 
contributed towards the stipend of the minister, Rev. Moses Chambers (their 
names appear only, as opposed to others and their contribution)  Perhaps they 
had left the parish? Neither name is recorded in the list of stipend payers for 

My apologies for the delay in responding, but work commitments must take 
priority and transcribing records for CTI is ongoing.

Forgive me, but I had asked Len twice if he could check the same sources (which 
I do not have access to) for the Kincaids of Leckpatrick and I am not sure if a 
problem occurred with a reply.  On Feb 27 he asked what period these Kincaids 
lived and I responded with details of them living in the mid to latter 1800s.  
I then received a message which was simply a forwarding of his 1st question.  
Did part of a message/response get lost?

Best wishes!

Hello Julie,

There are four graveyards within Leckpatrick parish, Strabane, Co. Tyrone; the 
graveyard attached to St. Patrick’s Parish Church (Church of Ireland) which is 
relatively modern, the graveyard attached to Leckpatrick Presbyterian Church, 
Artigarvan, also relatively modern, the RC graveyard belonging to St. Mary’s 
Chapel at Cloghcor and the ancient parish graveyard (Leckpatrick Old Burial 
Ground – now closed) on Victoria Road (corner Leckpatrick and Ballyheather 
Roads). This old place of rest contains many graves, but fewer headstones: the 
earliest recorded is dated 1617.

Referring to the Register of Gravestone Inscriptions in Leckpatrick Old Burial 
Ground, Artigarvan, Strabane – David & Sheelagh Todd (1991) there are no 
Nickle/ Nicholl headstones. So then went to a register compiled from a 
disintegrating map of the graveyard (1877) and again was unable to locate a 
burial place of the Nickles. There is a Henry Nichol recorded on the headstone 
of the Gordon family of Strabane referring to him as “a faithful friend”. In 
1989 the Strabane District Council erected a plaque in memory of the famed 
“Memory Man” Bobby Nicholl (1907-1985). Have also referred to a file of the 451 
legible headstone contained within the old Camus parish Graveyard in Patrick 
Street, Strabane, but again, there is nothing relevant to your forebears.

In the old days, folk had little money to spare for a headstone; however, all 
knew the location of the family burial place! My forebear, Joseph Arbuckle of 
Woodend died 1781 and is buried in Leckpatrick Old Burial Ground (with 
headstone). A relation accompanied me to the grave and mentioned that the two 
unmarked spaces on either side belonged to the (related) Houston family of 
Woodend although this is not recorded on the old map.

It is most likely that the Nickles of Woodend and elsewhere in the parish had a 
burial place in Old Leckpatrick, but it seems almost impossible to locate it. I 
guess you have found my file of Woodend rentals, tithe applotment book and 
Griffith Valuation (1858) on CTI? 

Hope this all helps?

I found your web pages whilst looking into my family history in the area. My gg 
grandfather was Joseph Nickle from Woodend. I'm trying to locate his grave and 
have already been to the area and found COI and Pres graveyards with no 
success. However I'm led to believe there's an old graveyard in the area. I was 
wondering if you could give me directions to this if you know where it is. My 
sat nav led me a merry dance last time trying to find the other two!

Many thanks
