Note: [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [ddandrm.ged] PIONEERS The Kincheloes, like the Worthingtons, were among the most influential and highly educated first-comers in the Green River country. Local tradition, however, is very vague regarding the history and genealogy of this family, although the name of Kincheloe, like that of Worthington, is very familiar to those who are versed in local traditions. It is quite probable that Lewis Kincheloe, who lived at Kincheloe's Bluff for many years and who took part in the battle of the Thames, was a brother of Reverend William Kincheloe, who married a daughter of Judge William Worthington, and that he was also a brother of Thomas Kincheloe, whose son, Jesse W., of Breckenridge County, was elected circuit judge in 1851 in the district then embracing Muhlenberg County. One of the pioneer Kincheloes who lived in Muhlenberg, died, it is said, on his way to Tippicanoe in 1811. He was probably a brother of Lewis, Reverend William, and Thomas. One tradition has it that all the pioneer Kincheloes were soldiers in the War of 1812 and were sons of Lieutenant William Kincheloe, who fought in the Revolution and died in Western Kentucky about 1798." ---"The History of Muhlenberg County" page 21
