    Notes 
    • "Mary" from husband Joseph's will. "Mary Jane Kincaid" from Cleek, p.96.

      Marriage date based on oldest known child's birthdate. Birthdate assumes she was at least 16 at marriage.

      Husband's will left her 1/3 of all grain and hay raised on "the land that I have improved" on the Cowpasture, Negro woman Hannah (to dau. Elizabeth after wife's death), sheep, hogs, household & kitchen furniture, bay filly.

      Wonder if she could be "Aunt Molly Gwinn" mentioned in the 8 Oct 1821 letter from Polly Clayton (in the Rev. John Craig)? At the time, Molly had a sore ankle "considered dangerous". We know from the Clayton letters that these Gwinns lived near the Claytons.

      I *think* this is Mary's death...
      1822 Apr 5: Inventory of Mary Gwin by David Kinkead, Charles L. Kinkead, and Hamilton Benson. Doesn't mention Negroes. [BCWI p.112]

      1825 June: Settlement of estate of Mary Gwin. Moses Gwin, administrator. Debits/credits: Andrew Kincaid, Robert Gwin, Sally Stuart, John Kincaid, Dr. W.H. Montgomery, James A. Frazier, James Stuart, William Givins.
      --I think it's this Mary because these are mostly family members, including granddaughter Sarah Stuart.

      I suspect she had a brother or father named William (the one who patented land with her husband Joseph Gwin in 1794) and her mother may have been Elizabeth - see Joseph's entry.
