Andrew moved to Champaign Co., OH, then to LaSalle Co., IL and to Union Co., IL, 1860 US census. Ch (13) were John, Nathaniel, Cornwall, Murray, Wallace, Andrew, Jr., Edwin, Sarah Ann, Mary Jane, possibly Alexander & others. Seven of the sons worked in the pottery business with the father, Andrew. WRK

This Alexander Kirkpatterick removed to Knox Co., OH and the family then went to AR in 1839. Again, verification is lacking but John Kirkpatrick, b ca 1738, NJ, and married Lydia Lewis, had a son, Alexander, who, according to family tradition, went to western PA. GMK/EDM

James, b 12DE1746, and Marget (McConvnont, b 12AP1750) K. appear in a Bible record which was done about 1800 but was probably transcribed from an older record. They were married 28JA1773. They appear to have lived initially in eastern PA and subsequentially moved to western PA. This is likely the James Kilpatrick family in the 1790 census for Rostraver Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA. Ch were James, b 1773; twins, b 1774; Andrew, b 1776; Mary, b 1778; Martha, b 1780; William, b 1783; Hannah, b 1784; unnam dau, b 1786; Ebenezer, b 1787; John, b 1790.

Samuel's son, Edwin, moved over to Franklin Co., IL. WRK thought this family might belong in the Hugh K. of PA file because the twins, Elisha & Elijah, U.S. Census of Cherokee Co., IA, 1880, are believed to be in the Hugh K. line.

Alexander K. of Lancaster Co., PA made a will of 1746. He names two sons under 18: Samuel and Alexander; a brother-in-law, Hugh Caldwel; a daughter, Elizabeth; a sister, Agnes; & a mother-in-law, unnamed. An inventory of Alexander's goods is dated 1764. A sheriff's sale occurred in 1776 in which, son, Samuells plantation was purchased by a neighbor to satisfy a debt. Samuel may have been away fighting in the War. In 1788, Samuel, a blacksmith, made a will in which he gave his plantation to his son, Samuel, Jr., and also made bequests to his daughters: Jean, Elizabeth Barclay, and Margaret, also mentions a brother-in-law, George McLaughlin. George McLaughlin was the buyer of Samuel's plantation at the Sheriff's sale in 1776.

Samuel K. of Armaugh, Ireland came to America and bought much land near Middletown, PA (10 miles SE of Harrisburg). One purchase, in 1737, was for 200 acres.

Paul Arnot (KNL, V.Ill, #1, pplO-14) has shown that it is improbable that this John K. could be the John Hugh K. of PA-8.

AFN -- Waugh, Wilkins ?, Espy, Kearsley


The will of John K., b 1687, m ca 1710, d 1772, of West Nottingham Twp., Chester Co., PA, was filed in 1771.

The line from the son, William K., has been traced to a William K. and his sons in Syracuse, NY. This John K., b 1687, has been proposed as a brother of Hugh K., b ca 1750, of Hugh K. of PA (KNL, V.I, #4, JL,AU, SE 1990, pp 12-13), however, this seems unlikely with the wide separation in birth dates. There may be an early family connection because both families were in the same area of Chester Co., PA.

AFN -- Evans, Welch, Boyd, Given
