Are you suggesting that the John Kincaid who witnessed the Morrison will in 1736 is John, the Cleric or another John Kincaid?

It is more likely that Samuel Kincaid and John Kincaid of New Hampshire were
about the same age.

on p. 433, Samuel Kinkerd along with many other men of Londonderry, signed a
document
"Two Sets of Town Officers Chosen, 1737"
The Petition of Sundry the Inhabitants of the Town of London-Derry in the
Province of New Hamp....


And John Kinkead, Robert Cochran, and Matthew Taylor were witnesses to the
will of John Morrison in 1736 in Londonderry, NH.
