Alice Lee (Legg) Kincaid July 29, 1931 – June 13, 2012

My mother passed away in the early hours of June 13, 2012. I have been meaning on posting something about her, but it is very hard to put anything in writing. For me it has been difficult to come to the realization that your parents have passed on. I really like this photo of her that I found and thought you might also.

Stuff you find…

I have been going through Ronnie’s research and pictures a little at a time and has really been an arduous task. It has really been a lot of work and it seems like I’m getting nowhere fast. Now I’m not trying to gain any sympathy, every now and then I run across something that gives me a little chuckle like this photo and makes it worthwhile.

This photo is classic. The photo has “Cole Girls” written on the back. Other than that I really know nothing. I assume it is from Mt. Lookout, but that’s only a guess. These ladies look liked they just stepped out of the saloon to me. I hope I’m not insulting anyone.

If you have any information regarding this photo, please let me know.

Community WW I Veterans

I thought I would post this photo of the WW I veterans from Mt. Lookout. Seems the least I can do for old War Heroes. From what little information I can find I believe this photo is from 1917. The tall guy third from the left in the back is my grandfather, George Wesley Kincaid.

Front Row, L to R; G.B. Jones, Charles Halstead, Henry and G.L. Pitsenberger

2nd Row: Charles Shaffer, Crosby McClung, William Murray Johns, Arthur Amick.

Back Row: Z.B. McClung, Emory Underwood, G.W. Kincaid, Frank Johns, C.S. McClung, Alex Hendrickson.

If you have anything you would like to add, please let me know.

Update: A big thanks to Loretta Legg and Tom Legg for pointing out my missing name. William Murray Johns was the name that was missing from the second row.

Mt. Lookout General Store

I was asked recently if I had any pictures and information on the old General Store in Mt. Lookout. What I know is very limited. Here is the information that I have gleaned from others (Debbie Fraley). It was built in 1901 by Walter Legg and served as the General Store and the Post Office. It is now owned by John and Mary Bethune as Gauley River Pottery. Here are a couple of photos that I have.


 According to what I have been told that is Walter Legg in the front on the right and Pete Legg in the back on the right. I have no idea who the other two are.

If anyone has more pictures or information on the store I would love to hear it.

Lots of Work to do…

I just returned from Thanksgiving with my family and have returned with multiple boxes of information that Ronnie had collected. I have plans of getting all of this converted to digital form and have it posted in the near future. There is a large box with nothing but photos. I will probably start with those and hope that I can find some help with identification. I will be uploading these photos to My Mt Lookout Heritage facebook group and the new My Mt Lookout Heritage Google+ page.

For those of you who have never used Google+, I would like to encourage you to try. Why? I really feel it has a better interface and I have much more control over my security. Facebook just leaves me a little flat. But, I will post the pictures to both locations since facebook has a very large following. I hope you enjoy the Photos!

Kincaids in Paris, France !

image

I have heard my Dad talk about this. Unfortunately I really don’t remember to much of the story. My Dad (Emory) was in Paris during WW II waiting to be sent elsewhere. He somehow found out that his brother Emil was there by coincidence.  My Dad is on the right and Uncle Emil on the left.
