Memoranda on arrest of James Kincaid, Nicholas, Virginia. 1862

James Kincaid.-Born in Fayette; moved to Nicholas last March. Arrested by some of the Wise Legion who called him a Union man. Says he is a volunteer in Captain Newman's company, Floyd's brigade, Colonel McCausland's regiment. Says he was taken sick and permitted to go home. On his recovery he went with the militia to Cotton Hill and remained there eighteen days. He then started to join Floyd's brigade; was arrested on his way. He is now hoarse from his sickness but expresses a desire to join his company. Mr. Robinson, the prosecuting attorney at Nicholas, proves him to be a man of good character, and he knows he volunteered in Newman's company. The man appears to be honest and candid. I suggest he be released from prison and be sent to his company.
