Obituary from "Signs of the Times," 1877:
"Brother Samuel Kincaid departed this life Feb. 25, 1877, at the residence of his son-in-law, J.L. Chamberlain, in Yamhill County, Oregon, aged 76 years and 28 days. The subject of this notice was born Jan. 27, 1801, in Powell's Valley, Tenn., moved to Kentucky with his parents when young, was married to Mary McGuire March 18, 1822, removed to Illinois, united with the Primitive Baptist Church called Bethel, in 1829, removed to Jackson County, Mo., in 1836 and united with the Pleasant Garden Church. He removed to Oregon in 1859, and joined the Siloam Church, in Marion County. In August, 1870, he and sister Kincaid removed their membership to New Hope Church, where they remained until removed by death. Brother Kincaid's health has been on the decline for several years. He was confined in the house most of the time for two months, suffering greatly most of the time, but did not murmur, but said it was all right. He remained strong in the faith of God's elect, and while he was able to talk, salvation was his theme; but he was not able to talk much for several days before his death. The funeral was largely attended by the mourning relatives and friends; but we mourn not as those without hope.
Yours in eternal life,
Thomas G. Flanary
Dilly, Washington Co., Ore."

Samuel Kincaid arrived in Oregon Territory September 24, 1852 with his wife. They filed a donation land claim in Marion County, Oregon Territory, which he settled Oct 31, 1852. Their marriage was witnessed by Thomas Flanary and James Chamberlain who became their neighbors in Dilley. He and wife Mary had several children including Christina F.(1832) and John (1845), born in Illinois and Missouri, respectively. His tombstone carries the inscription: "Profession OSB." The library of the Primitive Baptist Church in Illinois confirms that this can be interpreted as 'Profession of faith Old School Baptist.'
