  • Notes 
    • John Kincaid lived up the Creek known as Little Blue. Robert Field was beyond him, and Obadiah Vaughn lived a half mile east of Field. The next settler to come in was Caleb Longest. He settled on what has since been known as the Longest farm, about one and one half miles east of English. Paoli was the county seat. Now Albany had but four houses, and Jeffersonville was the nearest place where one could get salt.

      In The Name of God Amen

      I further declare that my sons Joseph's three little boys come in as an heir and to draw an equal part when the become of age it is further my wish that my sons Andrew and James to serve and sit as administrators of this my last will and further request them to keep and retain the part that falls to my son Josephs little boys and the same to be put on lawful interest until they become of age.

      I further declare that Stephen Easley shall entirely be debarred from drawing more than dollar or as little as the law will allow him. I hereby declare this to be my last will and testament in witness whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal the 28th day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty.

      Joseph Kinkaid {seal} Signed sealed and published and declared by the above named Joseph Kinkaid to be his last will and testament in the presence of us, who have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses in presence of the testator: Simon S. Monk Joel Ray James L. Simple

      Joseph may have been ill at the writing of his will as only five months later he was
      3 deceased and his will was in probate court. There is no known place of burial for Joseph, but it is thought by Satzler and Smith that both he and his wife are probably buried in Sloan Cemetery in English, Indiana.
