After making a few enquiries, a contact of mine in SA has managed to find out where Robert James Montague Kincade was buried - he's in West Street cemetery, Durban.

I'll ask Admin to post a photo of the burial record a little later, I'm not sure whether there is a headstone still in place.

Regards,

Tim

Well done Tim , I did have Durban genealogist on the trail to track down Kincade before I went there last May , she had no luck ! , next time I go I'll try to get there myself , is it easy to find ?? , I do believe the West street cemetery is in a state of disrepair if I recall ? .

(With thanks to John Deare and Ken & Eleanor Garvie).

Hello 90th, I've never been to the cemetery so not sure how easy it would be to find the grave; as I say, I'll try and make a few more enquiries regarding whether there is some kind of headstone.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Tim,
Crosschecking the data given to you about Kincade I have  been unable to pin the grave down in the  West St cemetery. Further the GGSA data base for West St  does not list Kincade  at all.
The burial record posted by Admin does indeed list Robert Montague Kincaid( note the spelling) age 77 interred in in grave 1110 section 0150, in 1935, but does not specify which cemetery it is.  It also list a Montague Kincaid aged 4 months buried in the same grave in 1915.
I know that the freeway project in Durban a few decades back placed a freeway through the northern section of West St cemetery, and those affected graves were relocated to within the existing cemetery. I would not have thought that that should have changed too much in terms of the records.

regards

barry

Hello Barry,

I was told the burial record came specifically from the West Street cemetery but I'll certainly double check - I did notice the spelling discrepancy but understand that the spelling 'Kincaid' has appeared before in relation to Robert and may simply be a mistake in this instance (?)

However, spelling of his surname aside, the fact that all the other names fit exactly, his age and that the burial date of late September seems to fit pretty well with the newspaper report all at least indicate that this is him - a little further research will hopefully confirm it either way.

Regards,

Tim

Hello to this wonderful forum!

It's been awhile since I've posted, and I apologize for that.  I'm the individual who started this thread about Trooper Kincade because he's an ancestor of my late father, Larry Brom.  For the past few years, my father has been in declining health here in the USA.  Sadly, he  passed away last year at the age of 85 from congestive heart failure and that's what my sister and I have been so busy dealing with and I neglected this forum.  

My sister and I have been researching Trooper Kincade since we found out about him from a cousin (who's last name is Kincaid) of my father's a few years ago.  Dad was an avid wargamer, a publisher of The Sword and The Flame rules sets and he was fascinated with military history all his life.  So when we found out about Trooper Kincade being the last survivor of Islandwana, he was thrilled beyond belief.  

So believe me when I say, thank you so much for all your help with tracking down any/all information about Trooper Kincade!!  What we'd REALLY love to find is a picture of Trooper Kincade, and we can't imagine there NOT being one since he was Natal Mounted Police.  

Thank you all again from wayyyyy across the pond!
