  John Kincaid Gauley Bridge, of course, was not known by that name before there was a bridge. As a matter of fact it was called Kincaid's Ferry after a rather fiery individual who had operated a ferry across the Gauley here for some little time. Naturally, the erection of this brand new bridge put Mr. Kincaid out of the ferry business in no time flat, and he was recorded as stating that he would be very happy if the infernal thing would burn down. The new turnpike did have its desired effect on the Kanawha salt industry, and soon wagon loads of salt were moving east. The traffic both east and west on the new road was heavy, and by 1827 there was a post road from Gauley Bridge up the river to Nicholas County, and a stage line had been established between Charleston and Lewisburg, making one trip per week. Fare: $7.00. On the night of July 11, 1826, someone set fire to the Gauley River Bridge, and for a while it looked as if our Mr. Kincaid were back in the ferry business. Unfortunately, there was some talk that he might have had something to do with the fire, and he was hailed into court and tried for arson. Only circumstantial evidence could be presented linking him to the crime, but it was good enough for the jury, and Mr. Kincaid was duly tried and convicted for arson. He was sentenced to the Virginia State Penitentiary forthwith and sent to Richmond to serve his sentence. All this did not replace the bridge, however, and for the time being, another ferryman had to be employed and he was paid one-third of all the fares he collected. The replacement of the bridge was not effected for two years but by 1828 another one was built and the ferryman dismissed. This bridge stood for twenty-one years.

  Publication: Fayette Tribune and Free Press Published: September 30, 1915 Headline: Bridge Burner John Kincaid Judge James H. Miller, of Hinton, contributes the following authoritive account of the Gauley bridges, their building and destruction: We have seen several accounts of the destruction of the ancient landmark, Gauley Bridge, which was originally a wooden, single-track wagon bridge spanning Gauley River at its mouth, and where the Gauley and New Rivers join and form the Kanawha; but there is some ancient history connected with the affair not yet published in recent accounts. Mrs. Margaret A. Miller, now seventy-seven years of age, was born and reared at Gauley Brige (sic, Bridge), and within 200 yards of the structure erected and destroyed, and is now residing with her daughter, Mrs. James H. Miller, of Hinton. She remembers distinctly the interesting instances of the Gauley bridges. She says the first bridge was built of wood, without a cover, single-tracked, and it was in use when she was a child, built before she was old enough to remember; that there was an old pioneer in that region, on Gauley, John Kincaid, who claimed the western landing of the bridge where the abutment stood, and the land around about the same; that he had a law suit, possibly with the Mansers, who were ancient owners from Massachusetts, and whose antecedents were the ancestors of our former citizen, Dr. Henry Manser, well known to many Summers-co. people, and whose father, Dr. John G. Manser, married a Dickinson, of Cotton Hill country, and later Miss Minnie Pack, a daughter of Anderson Pack, of the middle New River region. Later Dr. Manser moved to Kansas where he died, and where his children, Doctors Henry and John, and his daughter, Mrs. Prince, now reside. That when Kincaid lost in the court, he took out his revenge and satisfaction by setting fire to this first bridge, and burned it down - or up - and for which he was tried, convicted, sentenced and served a term in the penitentiary at Richmond, Virginia.
