There is a privately published, 500 page “book” titled "The Family of John Kincaid, Sr. (1710-1811), and Kincaids of the Carolinas and Virginia with Expanded Research in Burke and Caldwell Counties, North Carolina”. I have used this book extensively for my Kincaid family tree research (John was my 4th great grandfather). The book has some information on Rev. W.W. Todd and Sophia Kincaid. This is contained in a note at the end of the section on the descendants of Milton Wilburn Kincaid. I will repeat the information below (as close as possible to what is in the book):

QUOTE

NOTE: some information on Sophia Rebecca Todd Kincaid, second wife of Milton Wilburn Kincaid. Sophia’s maiden name was Moore.

At the time of her marriage to Milton, Sophia was the widow of Rev. W.W. Todd b. June 26, 1819 d. Jan.15, 1854. Rev. Todd was a Methodist Minister, he is buried in Fairfield Cemetery. Sophia was 45 years old when Milton Kincaid died, she did not remarry.

Sophia had 4 children by Rev. W.W. Todd:
(1) William A. Todd b. May 3, 1833 d. July 25, 1862, he did not marry, unable to get further information.
(2) James L. Todd, went to McKinney, Texas to live.
(3) Charles S. Todd married Rebecca Elizabeth Kincaid, daughter of Col. John Kincaid.
(4) Mary Ann Todd married Lambert Augustus Bristol.

END QUOTE

From the above information, you can see that James had a Kincaid sister-in-law, married to his brother Charles. They were married in 1868. Additionally, I have his full name as James Leroy Todd. I have extensive notations on my sources but unfortunately not for where I got the “Leroy”.

From other information I have, James had Kincaid half-siblings born to Sophia and Milton Wilburn Kincaid. These were (1) Finley Milton Kincaid, Sr., (2) Sarah Catherine Kincaid, (3) Luticia Rebecca Kincaid, and (4) Alonzo A. Kincaid.

On the 1880 census he is listed a Leeroy Todd.
Have not been able to located the 1850 census with Rev W.W. todd listed. If Rev Todd and Sophia Moore got married in 1841 it is odd that they a child in 1833 William A. Todd.

In response to the last part of your message, there must be something wrong with the birth date for William A. Todd. I have a birth date for him of 1842. A birth date of 1833 would have meant that Sophia was only about 9 when he was born. Your message shows her birth date as 1824 and I have a date of 1823.

Sophia Kincaid is buried in Forest Hill Cemetery in Morganton. If you have access to the Burke County Genealogical Society published cemetery volumes, see Volume III, page 11. The information recorded on Sophia's gravestone is that she was born in 1824 and died in 1894. Her second husband Milton Wilburn Kincaid and his first wife Mary Abigail Bristol are buried in a private Kincaid cemetery in Burke County.

You may be interested in knowing what I found on page 13 of Volume III: "Nina Todd, Died 2-14-1880, Age about 24 years, wife of J.L. Todd". Is this the first wife of James Lee Todd? Unfortunately, there is no maiden name given or hinted at.

Sounds right. He had 2 daughters Nina and Mary. I will have to see if the Dallas Library has the cemetery books.

I'll send you an e-mail on this subject. I may have to try several times as for some reason I seem to have trouble these days sending e-mails to AOL addresses.
