HISTORIC-GENEALOGY 



OF 



THE KIRK FAMILY, 



AS ESTABLISHED BY 



Roger Kirk, 



Who settled in Nottingham, Chester County, Province, of Penn- 
sylvania, about the year 1714, containing impartial bio- 
graphical sketches of his descendants, so far as ascer- 
tained ; also, a record of two hundred a?id nine 
of the descendants of Alphonsus Kirk, who 
migrated from Zurgan, North Ireland, 
and settled in the county of New 
Castle, Delaware.

PREFACE. 



On the 30th day of March, 1867, we had printed and dis- 
tributed the following circular letter : 

" We design compiling a record of the names, births, mar- 
riages and deaths of all the Kirks, and their descendants, from 
the time of the settlement in this country of our common 
ancestor — Roger Kirk — to a period that will include those of 
the latest generation. 

" You will, therefore, confer a favor by sending us all the 
information in your possession relative to the dates of births, 
deaths and marriages of your ancestors and your descendants. 

"Any old document of interest relating to the Kirks, if 
sent to the undersigned, will be scrupulously preserved and 
returned to the possessor. 

" Considerable time and much labor will be recpuired to 
accomplish this work, hence it is desirable that those who may 
be disposed to assist, should furnish us all information in their 
possession at as early a day as possible. 

" Very respectfully, &c." 

Since the date of the above we have collected the material 
found in this volume, a task assigned to the leisure hours of 
the last four years. 

Our object in compiling this genealogy was twofold. First, 
to preserve in book form all that might be deemed worthy of 
an old established and extensively known family, and second, 



iv. Preface, 

to arrange it in such a manner as to be of interest, as well as 
accessible to the present generation contained therein. 

How well we have succeeded is not for us to determine. 

All works of this character must of necessity be more or 
less incomplete, and we are well aware that this one i3 no ex- 
ception to the general rule. To obtain correct data in all 
cases of families and branches of families, extending back 
through a long series of years (in this instance one hundred 
and fifty-seven), where they have been scattered over a large 
space of country, is a matter of impossibility. Nevertheless, 
we believe we have been as successful in tracing out the vari- 
ous ramifications of our family, extending, as they do, from 
Maryland to Utah, and from Ohio to Kentucky, as other 
genealogists who have attempted works of a similar nature, 
and at the same time had not the advantages of some govern- 
mental archives or records of royalty, to aid them in their 
undertakings. 

Cooperation in the preparation of this volume we have gen- 
erously received, and to the many friends who have rendered 
us assistance we emphatically offer our thanks for their 
untiring support. Among these we may mention Gilbert 
Cope, of West Chester, who has written and published several 
works upon genealogy, to whom we are under many obliga- 
tions for important assistance in tracing out the Woodward 
branch of the family, al«o for the use of valuable MSS. ; to 
Dr. L. R. Kirk, of Rising Sun, Md., formerly of the U. S. 
Army, for aid in securing a large amount of material and 
in assisting to push the work to a final completion ; to Roger 
H. Kirk, of Pleasant Grove, Lancaster co , Pa.; Ann Kirk, of 
Brick Meeting House, and Alfred Kirk, of College Green, 
Cecil co., Md.. for old MSS. belonging to some of the eailiest 
of the name of Kirk in the West and South, Theodore J. 



Preface. v- 

Kirk, of Elmore ; Isaac Cope, of New Baltimore, James King- 
ham, of Port Clinton ; Knight Kirk Winder, of Kingsville. 
Ohio ; and Thomas B. Jones, Esq., of Popular Plains, Ken- 
tucky — all of whom have at different times furnished us with 
material from those residing iu their respective neighborhoods. 

In conclusion, we may remark that there need be no diffi- 
culty in understanding the arrangement pursued throughout 
this work. Among the various plans adopted in books of this 
kind the one selected is decidedly the most systematic. 

We have arranged the dates in plain style, chiefly in use 
among Friends, not on account of any personal preference to 
the system, but because it is much more convenient to use 
where the age of anyone is required. Dashes are used where 
names and dates were not ascertained. If to some, more space 
is accorded than to others, it i? because the data was furnished, 
and not on the score of partiality. 

May those into wiose hands this volume finds its way, have 
as much pleasure in perusing its pages as we have had in 
writing them. C. H. S.

THE KIRK FAMILY. 



The old traditionary story "of having descended from three 
brothers," who came from England, Ireland, or some other 
foreign land, and settled in different localities, is told and be- 
lieved by many of the descendants of the first colonists o 
south-eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware. 

In fact, this ancient, stereotyped tradition, seems to attach 
itself to all our old families ; and is related with an unction 
sufficient to make one, not cognizant of the uncertainties con- 
nected with genealogy, accept it as a historical truth. 

The Kirk Family, of Nottingham, being among the oldest 
established in Pennsylvania, does not lack in traditionary 
lore as regards ancestry. 

As a natural sequence we have the following : — 

I. " The Kirks are all descended from three brothers : 
Alphonsus, who came from Ireland, and settled in New 
Castle, Delaware; Jacob, who settled on the rich lands oft! e 
Conestoga, and Roger, who located near the waters of North - 
East Creek." 

II. The first who came to America was Alphnnus Kirk, 
and from him descended all of the name of Kirk in this country. 

After three years' patient search and inquiry, having access 
to many old documents of a historical nature, we have arrived 
at the conclusion that none of the above statements have any 
foundation in fact. 



2 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

Prior to the arrival of William Penn, and for many years 
after this event, a number of persons of the name of Kirk, 
migrated to this country, settled in different localities, and 
eventually became the founders of numerous families. In all 
probability they came from the same region of country in the 
"O'd World," but to tell what relation they bore to each 
other, is, at this late day, a matter of impossibility. 

In our genealogical researches we have succeeded in tracing 
our family back to Roger Kirk, of East Nottingham ; but no 
farther. 

Of him little is known, save what can be learned in the 
different provisions of his "last will and testament." It ap- 
pears that he was among the pioneers of Nottingham, and, 
reasoning a priori, are led to infer that he migrated from the 
north of Ireland. He located in East Nottingham, Chester 
county, Province of Pennsylvania,* at least as early as 1712, 
where, at different times, he purchased large tracts of land, 
■situated on both sides, and extending for a great distance along, 
.Nonh-IEast Creek. By occupation, he was a weaver, and it 
would seem that he carried on this business together with 
farming. 

He was married about the year 1714, to Elizabeth Richards, 
of Aston, of whom we have the following account : 

Among the early settlers in Chichester township (now Del- 
aware county), Pa., were Joseph Richards and his wife Jane, 
who doubtless came from England. 

Their children were Joseph, Nathaniel, Ann, who married 
Anthony Weaver, and Humphrey Scarlet, and Susanna, who 
married James Lownes, of Springfield. The father died about 
the year 1710. 

*M:isons' and Dixon's line was not run until the year 1763. It was then ascer- 
tain! d that many of the early Friends who were under the impression that they 
resided iu Penn's Province, were living on the lands of the Calverte. 



THE KIRK FAMILY. 6 

Nathaniel Richards was a blacksmith, and settled in Aston 
township, where he died in the year 1700, leaving a wife, Mary, 
and four children; William, Nathaniel, Elizabeth and Mary. 

From the will of Richard Mason, of Aston, who died in 
1715, it would appear that Nathaniel's wife was his sister, and 
if so, she was the daughter of Richard Mason, who died in 
1714, leaving a wife, Abigail, and children, Thomas, Joseph, 
Benjamin, Abraham, Richard, Mary, Sarah, Hannah, Eliza- 
beth and Susanna. 

After a time Mary Richards married again to one Thomas 
Rowland, of Aston, who probably came from Cheshire, Eng- 
land. Being Friends, but the marriage not being celebrated 
in the usual manner, they afterward made an acknowledg- 
ment for having acted contrary to the advice of the meeting. 

AbouL the year 1707 they removed westward, to William 
Penn's Manor, now New Garden township, and settled in a 
beautiful valley, on a tract of 700 acres, which they called 
" Marberry." This land extended from the present village of 
Toughkennamon, eastward to the line of Kennett township. 
Thomas Rowland died in 1708, and without having obtained 
a deed for the land, which was, however, confirmed to the 
widow within the same year. In 1712 she purchased 438 
acres of adjoining land to the eastward. The Philadelphia 
and Baltimore Central Railroad now passes through both of 
these tracts. In 1713 Mary was married to a third husband, 
Evan Powell, a widower of Nottingham, who came to live 
with her on her property in New Garden. William and Mary 
Richards, the children of her first husband, probably died 
young, while Nathaniel and Elizabeth, the other two, accom- 
panied their mother in her removal from Aston. 

Nathaniel married Margaret, daughter of Allen Wiley, and 
Elizabeth became the wife of Roger Kirk. 



4 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

Nathaniel left three sons, William, Nathaniel and Isaac. 
His widow married William Carpenter, an Englishman, who 
settled in New Garden. Thomas and Mary Rowland had 
three daughters, viz. : Mary, who married Joshua Hadley ; 
Ruth, who married William Miller, and Rachael, who married 
Thomas Wiley. By her third husband she had one daughter, 
Sarah Powell, born in 1714, who became the wife of Joseph 
Dixon. 

Mary Powell — the mother of Elizabeth Kirk — died on the 
17th of 3d month (March), 1731-2, and her husband about 
the year 1736. 

The next mention of Roger and Elizabeth Kirk is in a 
deed conveying a part of his estate to his oldest son, Timothy : 

" This Indenture,* made the twenty-fifth day of the fifth 
month, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred 
and fifty-two, between Roger Kirk, of the township of Notting- 
ham and County of Chester and Province of Pennsylvania, 
Weaver, and Elizabeth, his wife, of the one part, and Timothy 
Kirk, of Nottingham aforesaid, Planter, and son of the afore- 
said Roger Kirk and Elizabeth, his wife, on the second part,

On the day following the execution of this deed, 5 mo. 26th, 
1752, Roger Kirk conveyed another farm, containing 340 
acres, to his son, Timothy Kirk, making in all 540 acres. 

In the language of the old records of the monthly meeting 
at Nottingham, " Roger Kirk, Sr., died at his house near 
North-East Creek, f 28th day of y e 3 month, 1761." 

His residence, or at least the one he occupied at the time 
of his death, is still stand ing,"and in a good state of preserva- 
tion. It is a small, antiquated, two-story brick, situated close 
on the highway (a short distance west of North-East Creek) 
leading from Brick Meeting House to Port Deposit, Md. It 
is now the property of Horace Duyckinck, who also owns the 
major part of the original farm once possessed by our common 
ancestor. 

Two years before his decease, Roger Kirk made the follow- 
ing, " his last will and testament :" 

To all Christian people to whom these p>resents shall come or may 

concern : 

Know ye that I, Roger Kirk, of the Township of West 
Nottingham, in the County of Chester, in the Province of 
Pennsylvania, Weaver, being at this time weak in body, but

two died single. The latter were Mary, the eldest, and Samuel, 
the youngest of the family. 

Timothy, the eldest son, was married first to Anne Gatch- 
ell, daughter of Elisha and Rachel Gatchell ; and second, to 
Ann McLaughlin. William, the second son, married Mary 
Robinson. Elizabeth, the second daughter, married Thomas 
Woodward. Deborah married Jos. Wollison, and Rebecca 
married John Cook. 

The descendants of all these families, save those of Joseph 
and Deborah Wollison, John and Rebecca Cook, have been 
traced out in this work, and will be found as nearly complete 
as a record of this kind can be made. 

For the benefit of any future genealogist who may feel an 
interest in searching up the Cook branch of our family, we 
give the following as a basis from which to commence the 
■work : — 

Rebecca Kirk, married 1752, at East Nottingham, to John 
Cook. 

Children of John and Rebecca Cook. 

Elizabeth, born , — , — ; died 1813, 5, 25. Married 

at London Grove, 1772, 11, 25, to Jacob, son of William and 
Phoebe Brown, of West Nottingham. Jacob was a carpenter. 
Elizabeth was interred in the family graveyard near her 
house. 

Eleanor, born , — , — ; married at London Grove, 

1779, 5, 5, to Nathan Sidwell, of West Nottingham, son of 
Hugh and Ann. 

John, born , — , — ; married at New Garden, 1784, 

12, 2, to Elizabeth Davis, daughter of Caleb and Margaret, 
of New Garden. 

Timothy Kirk, designated as a planter, eldest son of Roger 
and Elizabeth, was a member of the Society of Friends, and 



THE KIRK FAMILY. 13 

married his first wife according to the discipline of this relig- 
ious society. The certificate of his marriage is the oldest 
containing the name of Kirk found in " Nottingham Records." 
It may prove of much interest to those not familiar with the 
regulations concerning marriage as adopted by this religious 
denomination ; we therefore insert it just as taken from the 
Friends' archives, kept at Nottingham. 

Whereas, Timothy Kirk, son of Roger Kirk, and Annie 
Gatchell, daughter of Elisha Gatchell, of East Nottingham, 
in county and province aforesaid, having declared their inten- 
tions of marriage before several monthly meetings of the 
Christian people, called Quakers, in East Nottingham afore- 
said, according to the good order used among .them, and having 
consent of parents and relations concerned their said proposals 
of marriage. After deliberate consideration they appear clear 
of all others, were approved by the said meetings. 

Now these may certify whom it may concern, that for the 
full accomplishment of their said intentions, this 29th day of 
8th month, A. D. 1741, they, the said Timothy Kirk and 
Annie Gatchell, appeared in a public meeting of the said people, 
assembled at their public meeting place, in East Nottingham 
aforesaid, where they, y' said Timothy Kirk, taking the said 
Annie Gatchell by the hand, did in a solemn manner openly 
declare that he took her to be his wife, promising, with Divine 
assistance, to be unto her a loving and a faithful husband 
until it should please the Lord by death to separate them. 
And then and there, in the said assembly, the said Annie 
Gatchell did in like manner declare that she took him, the 
said Timothy Kirk, to be her husband, promising, with Divine 
assistance, to be unto him a loving and a faithful wife, until 
it should please the Lord by death to separate them, or words 
to that effect. Moreover, they, the said Timothy Kirk and

Annie Gatchell (she, according to the customs of marriage ) 
assuming her husband's surname), did as a further confirma- 
tion thereof, then and there, to these presents, set their hands 

as husband and wife.

Soon after commencing the task of collecting material for 
a genealogy of our family, we became aware of the fact of 
there being another planted in Nottingham of the same name, 
whose history could be traced back to a period anterior to our 
own. This was the Kirk family as established by Alphonsus 
Kirk, who migrated from Lurgan, county of Armagh, North 
Ireland, and arrived in this country in the year 1688,

three hundred names of those who are descended from this 
settler. The narration of incidents connected with the estab- 
ment of homes in the then newly settled provinces, as there 
given, is not only highly interesting, but instructive. 

It will be perceived that Roger, the eldest son of Alphonsus, 
Was cotemporaneous with him who was the founder of our 

family. 

This Roger was born in Delaware, on the 21st of 1 mo., 
1604 ; was married at Nottingham, 9th of 12th mo., 1726, to 
J^an, daughter of Henry Bowea, of Cecil county, Maryland, 
aud died 19th of 12 mo. % 1762. His children were:

Sampson, " 1746, 12, 18. 

Sarah, " 1750, 12, 13. 

What relation these two R oger Kirks bore to each other, 
is a problem we have been unable to solve. 

Hiving dwelt at some length upon everything that could 
be ascertained of a historical nature, relative to the early 
settlers of the name of Kirk, and their settlements made in 
the counties of Chester and Delaware, Pa., and New Castle, 
Del., we now proceed to trace out our family to the eighth 
generation, adopting a form we now believe accepted by our 
best New England genealogists.

1. Roger Kirk and Elizabeth Richards. 

SECOND GENERATION. 
Children of Roger Kirk and Elizabeth Richards.

3. Timothy, born 1717, 11, 17 ; died 1784, 11, 15 ; married 
1741, 8, 29, to Ann Gatchell, daughter of Elisha and Rachel 
Gatchell. Ann died 1766, 1, 8. Timothy was married 1768, 
— , — , to Ann McLaughlin. He was a farmer and weaver, 
and resided on a property in Nottingham, Md., which he in- 
herited from his father. 

4. William, born 1719, 11, 25; died 1767, 6, 30; married 
1745, 10, 19, to Mary, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Rob- 
inson, of Christiana Hundred, Del. Mary was born 1723, 12, 5. 

5. Elizabeth, born 1721-2, 1, 5 ; died 1812, 1, 25 ; married 
1744, 3,8, at East ^Nottingham Meeting, to John Jacobs, son of 
Thomas and Mary Jacobs, of Cecil county, Maryland. He was 
born 1715-6, 12, 6, and died 1741. 6, 2, or about three months 
after marriage. Elizabeth was married again 1745, 10, 26, at 
East Nottingham Meeting, to Thomas Woodward, son of Rich- 
ard and Mary, of East Bradford, Chester county, Pa. Thomas 
was born 1722-3, 11, 7, and died 1785, 6, 15. 

Richard Woodward, was the son of Robert, of " Rockland 
Manor," New Castle county, Delaware and Birmingham, 
Chester county, Pa. In the year 1705, he married Mary, the 
only heir of Henry Nayle, Esq., of Thornbury, and at his 
death in 1748, left seven children, viz. : Henry, John, Rich- 
ard, Thomas, Deborah, wife of Wm. Bennett ; Mary, wife of 
John Strode ; and Alice, wife of Joshua Ash. 



SECOND GENERATION. 17 

Richard conveyed to his son Thomas, "under date 1740,12, 
12," one hundred and fifty acres of land, in East Bradford. 
Thomas sold this in four tracts, viz. : Fifty acres to Joseph 
Townsend, 1744, 10, 25; fifty acres to John Townsend, 1744, 
12,12; forty-seven acres and thirty-eight perches, to Theo- 
philus Canby, 1748, 3, 25 ; and nine and a-half acres to Geo. 
Strode, under date 1748, 3, 26. 

Thomas Woodward was a Friend, and member of Concord 
Monthly Meeting, from which he obtained "a certificate of 
removal" to New Garden Monthly Meeting, dated 1749, 4, 5. 
This was probably about the time he settled in East Marl- 
borough township, and became a member of London Grove 
Particular Meeting. His residence was on the " Street Road," 
one and three-fourth miles east of the meeting house. He 
carried on the business of book-binding, and was also a surveyor 
and conveyancer. Some of his labors as a surveyor were per- 
formed in the neighborhood of Duck Creek, in Delaware. It 
is related that at one time he had occasion to survey a farm, 
the owner of which threatened violence if he proceeded. 
Thomas asked if he had any objection to the survey of the 
adjoining properties, and receiving a reply in the negative, 
crossed the fence and measured around the farm without being 
upon it. 

John Woolman, a noted preacher among Friends, and one 
of the most scrupulous anti-slavery men of his day, on one 
occasion attended Quarterly Meeting at London Grove. Here 
he delivered one of his powerful discourses against holding 
persons in bondage. At that time Friends were not all clear 
of this evil, though it is safe to assert that their servant swere 
generally treated with humanity. After meeting, Woolman, 
with several friends, went to the house of Thomas Woodward 
to take dinner. Entering the house, he observed some colored

persons, and learning that they were slaves, he quietly picked 
up his hat and cane (he traveled on foot), and left the room 
and his friends. They supposed he would return shortly, but 
were disappointed. Thomas Woodward had a high standing 
in the meeting, and this incident had a great effect upon his 
mind, so that on awakening the next morning he told his 
wife he must liberate his slaves. 

She asked if all must be liberated, adding, ''Must Bet go 
too," and even burst into tears at the thought of losing her 
faithful servant. But the decree was made and would be 
carried out, for Thomas was unwilling to keep a house at 
which his friends could not be entertained. He was after- 
ward appointed by the meeting one of a committee to visit 
such as held slaves, and endeavor to convince them " of the 
evil of so doing." 

Elizabeth Woodward survived her husband many years, and 
died 1812, 1, 5. 

6. Deborah, born 1723, 5, 2 ; died , — , — . Married Jos- 

Wollison, by whom she had five children, viz. : Jacob, Wil- 
liam, Elizabeth, Catharine and Joseph. These are the ances- 
tors of many of the name of Wollison, living in Chester county 
and Delaware. Their descendants have not been traced out 
,in this work. Deborah Wollison, formerly Kirk, was mar- 
,ried a second time. Her second husband was Matthew 
_Augiltree. 

7. Rebecca, born 1729, 8, 25 ; died , — , — . Married 

.about the year 1752, to John Cooke (now spelled Cook), of 

Nottingham. From this John Cook descended many of the 
.name that settled in Chester county, and in West Virginia. 
This branch has not been traced out.

13. Roger, 1751, 6, 5; died 1809, 3, 20. Married at East

tensively known among the prominent men of his time, in 
south-eastern Pennsylvania. 

When hostilities commenced between the colonies and the 
mother country, he was in the prime of manhood. An ardent 
Whig, he joined the Continental army, and soon arose to the 
rank of captain.* 

He continued in the service for some time and was present 
and took part in the principal battles fought in the Middle 
States under Washington. 

At the close of the war, he returned home and it is related 
that he rode up to the door (dressed in continental uniform) 
of the Brick Meeting House, just in time to hear the clerk 
read the minute of his disownment for violating the disci- 
pline by entering the military service. This, however, is 
rather apocryphal. During his absence, his farms and mills 
became neglected, and, upon his return, required his care and 
attention. 

Being emphatically a " business man," he did not remain at 
home long before he was elected to represent his friends and 
neighbors in the State Legislature. Philadelphia was then 
the National and State capital. Roger Kirk attended the 
assembly at this place, as one of the members from the county 
of Chester. By his urbanity and integrity, he gained the 
confidence of his political associates, was re-elected for several 
consecutive sessions, and became an influential representative. 

During his term of service, he secured the passage of an act 
of Assembly to lay out and grade a State Road, now known 
as the Christiana, or " Christeen Road," a public highway, sixty 
feet wide, leading from the Upper Peach Bottom Ferry, a 

♦Until a comparatively recent period, the old commission of this, our early 
ancestor, was in possession of his grandson, Roger H. Kirk, of P'easaut Grove.

point on the eastern bank of the river Susquehanna, to the 
Maryland line, in the direction of the "navigable waters of 
Christiana creek," in the State of Delaware. 

This act empowered the Governor of the Commonwealth 
to enter into a contract with a company, or an individual, 
to make this road for the sum of five hundred dollars. 
The contract was taken by Roger Kirk, the member from the 
district through which it mainly passed, for the faithful per- 
formance of which he gave the required bonds. 

Under the impression that some of the papers relative to 
the making of this noted highway might prove of interest to 
the readers of this volume — many of them, perhaps, lineal 
descendants of those who constructed this road, having 
" hauled " grain over it in the olden time, the days of the 
annual trip to " old Christeen " — we shall insert a few of 
them in connection with this biographical sketch.* 

*From the following report it would apptar that the order to locate this road 
was given to Roger Kirk and others, in the year 1792 ; but no article of agreement 
or bond was made by the contractor until four years afterward : 
To Thomas ilifflin, Esq., Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania : 
Pursuant to your order bearing date the 30r,h of April, 1792, and to us directed, 
requiring us to lay out a road beginning at or near Peach Bottom Ferry, ou the 
river Susquehanna, toward the navigable waters of Christiana creek, in the State 
of Delaware. Having, therefore, accurately examined the whole distance between 
the said ferry and the nearest navigation aforesaid, and accordingly laid out a road 
upon the most eligible ground and nearest distance, to the best of our judgment, as 
far as ttrs State extends toward the navigable waters aforesaid, the courses and 
distances of which are as follows, viz. : — Beginning at the upper landing of Peach 
Bottom, called Brown's Ferry, and thence running down said river the different 
courses of the present road one hundred and fifty-four perches to Porter's Landing, 
at the BallRocks; thence leaving the river north six y-one degrees east, fifty perch- 
es to Porter's house; thence north seventy-one degrees east, one hundred and forty- 
five perches to Jones' house; thence north sixty-six degrees east, one hundred and ten 
perches to a stake; thence north eighty-three degrees and thirty-five minutes east, 
two hundred and sixty perches to Paddle Duck Run; thence north fifty-four degrees 
east, one hundred and four perches to a white oak ; thence north eighty-six degrees 
east, twelve hundred and thirty perches to a white oak ; thence south sixty-five de- 
grees east, twenty-three perches to a white oak ; thence south seventy degrees east, 
one hundred and twenty-four perches to the north side of Octoraro Creek ■ thence 
north seventy-six degrees east, one hundred and six perches to stake; thence south 
seventy-five degrees and forty-nine minutes east, three hundred and forty-two 
perches to a stake; thence south sixtv-nine degrees and nine minutes east, eleven 
hundred and fifteen perches to Kirk's Mills ; thence soutn sixty-nine degrees and 
twenty minutes east, one hundred and eighty-six perches to Ramsey's house ; thence 
south seventy degrees and thirty minutes east, fi^e hundred and eighty perches to 
a stake ; thence south sixty-eight degrees east, forty-six perches to a stake ; thence

south sixty-eight degrees and forty-six minutes east, two hundred and fifty-six 
perches to a stake in the south side of Mount Rocky ■ thence south seventy degrees 
east, one hundred and forty perches to a stake, and south eighty-three degrees and 
fifty-nine minutes east, two hundred and forty perches to a stake, in intersection 
of Maryland line. 

Which road, as above laid out and confirmed, and property opened 60 feet wide, 
we think will be of great advantage to the public in general, as it will shorten the 
distance five miles between said ferry and the line of Delaware State, and upon 
much better ground than the old road. 

Given under our hand, this seventeenth day of November, one thousand seven 
hundred and ninety-two.

Four years after the road was "viewed" and located by the above parties, an 
article of agreement was entered into for making the same, as will be seen by the 
following document :

the completion of the railroad from Philadelphia to Balti- 
more, the main stage road led through Oxford — this place 
being a station and one of the " relays." Timothy Kirk was 
interested in this " line of stages " and in running cars on the 
Pennsylvania Railroad. In the year 1837 he became pecu- 
niarily involved. To escape trouble he departed, and finally 
sailed for Europe, and remained on the continent for some 
time. In 1839 he proposed returning, and embarked for Bos- 
ton, but never reached America. In the early months of that 
year several sailing vessels were shipwrecked on the New 
England coast, all the passengers being lost. It is generally 
supposed that he was on board one of these vessels and was 
one of the ill-fated number.

from whence his ancestors are supposed to have migrated. He 
revisited Europe in 1851, and attended the World's Fair in 
London. He also made a tour through Ireland, and bi'ought 
a colony of emigrants to America. John Kirk was " well

ing this time he was an assiduous student ; but his limited 
circumstances prevented him from completing his studies 
in the usual period allotted to the study of the law. 

Leaving Mr. Stevens' office, he taught school and pursued 
his studies at intervals. On the 13th of May, 1861, he was 
admitted to the bar of Chester county. Soon afterward he 
opened an office at Oxford, in that county. The rebellion 
breaking out, and clients being scarce, young Fulton threw 
down his law-tomes, and entered the service. He assisted in 
raising a company, and on the 1st of September, 1861, was 
mustered into the service of the U. S. as Captain of Co. E., 
Purnell Legion, Md. Vol. He remained in the army until 
the last of January, 1863, when he was honorably discharged 
on "account of disability." While in the army, he took part 
in many engagements in the Shenandoah valley and Eastern 
Virginia. At the battle of Antietam he held the third posi- 
tion in his regiment. The colonel and lieutenant-colonel 
being absent, the command of the regiment devolved upon 
Major Fulton (he having been promoted previous to this bat- 
tle). It was ordered into action at sunrise of that day, and 
remained under fire until one o'clock P. M., During this 
battle many of those in the regiment were killed, and wound- 
ed, but Major Fulton came out of the action unscathed. Since 
the war he has resided in the borough of Oxford, where he 
practices his profession.

WRITTEN BY RACHEL PRICE. 



Although I have already made some short notes of the 
early settlement of my predecessors in this country, with 
some of their privations and hardships, as related by my 
father when I was young, yet, at the request of some of my 
near relations and friends to give a more full detail of occur- 
rences that then took place, as I am the only survivor now 
remaining that can remember, so as to relate them, I am 
induced to make the attempt, though sensible of my inability 
to perform; yet if the simple relation of facts, according to 
the best of my memory (often hearing him* relate them 
when I was so small as to sit on his lap, listening with great 
interest and attention when he was conversing with his 
friends.) 

If the recording of them may be the means of awakening 

♦Her father, William Kirk (12).

gratitude and love to the Great Preserver of men, in the 
hearts of His numerous offspring, for the many favors con- 
ferred upon us, spiritual and temporal ; that we may be more 
fully given up to serve Him is the desire of my heart. 

My grandfather, Alphonsus Kirk, son of Roger and Eliza- 
beth Kirk, of Lurgan, in Ireland, came to America in the 
year 1689, and settled in New Castle county, Centre township, 
near Brandy wine creek, about a mile in a northerly direction 
from where Young's Paper Mill now stands. He was married 
to Abigail Sharpley, of Shillpot creek, on the 23d day of the 
12th month, A. D. 1692. She came from England in the 
ship with William Penn. They settled on a farm a half mile 
from Centre Meeting House, where they continued to reside 
during their lives. Their son Adam inherited it after them 
his life time. It then descended to his son Caleb, in whose 
possession it remained a considerable time. It is now gone 
out of the name. 

My grandfather, it appears, had eleven children, who most- 
ly lived to grow up and settle. My father, whose name was 
William, was the youngest child but one, whose name was 
Timothy. They had many adventures together when young, 
which they would speak of when they met, which they fre- 
quently did, and would in a pleasant manner rehearse, which 
was very interesting to us in childhood ; but there was an af- 
fecting occurrence took place when they were small boys, 
which I have often heard my father relate, which struck my 
infant mind with horror and dismay. It so happened that 
my grandmother was left with only these two little boys with 
her, when there came up a large bear, and near the door be- 
fore she saw it. She only had time to shut the lower part (it 
being a double door) before he had his fore feet upon it ; 



ALPH0NSU8 KIRK. 219 

there being a pudding bag hanging on it so as to prevent 
her from getting it shut very quick. She pushed it against 
his paws with all her strength to prevent his getting in, and 
called to the little boys to bring her the axe, which was in the 
house ; but they could not find it. She told them to hand her 
the rolling-pin, which she beat his feet with until he was wil- 
ling to withdraw them so that she could get the door fastened. 
He then attempted to climb upon a kind of shed that was 
over the door and extended to a window in the second story. 
She, seeing his determination to get in if he could, requested 
her little sons to go down into the cellar and get into a chest 
that was there and shut down the lid, but not so close that 
they could not get their breath, and she would go up and try 
and prevent his getting in. 

The shed had been made of round saplings covered over 
with brush, and there was snow on them. Some of them rolled 
as he walked on them so as to let him fall through and hurt 
him. She threw him some parts of beef, which he devoured 
with great greediness, appearing to be very hungry ; then went 
off. They had killed a beef that day, which no doubt at- 
tracted the hungry and devouring animal. 

The next morning several men set out in search of him, 
his feet being wounded so that they bled on the snow, enabled 
them to track him. They soon found him. Grandfather 
taking his axe, and with some stout dogs, attacked him 
with violence. A hard conflict ensued, in which the bear 
seemed likely to gain the victory over the dogs. 

Grandfather went to their assistance with his axe. In the 
meantime his eldest son with others came riding up and ob- 
served the scuffle, but not seeing his father with them he incau- 
tiously raised his gun in order to fire; but his companion 



220 DESCENDANTS OF 

observing called to him to desist, which he did, and was pre- 
served from doing injury. They soon succeeded in killing the 
bear. Oh, what cause for thankfulness and gratitude to the 
Preserver of men, in that He condescends to protect in many 
and imminent dangers ! 

In the early settling of the country there was much diffi- 
culty in getting their grain ground after they had raised it ; 
there being so few mills, very slow in operation. 

The inhabitants pretty widely scattered around, they, some 
of them, had a considerable distance to go. 

They often had to wait a good while for their grists, as 
they had to wait their turns. 

My father informed us of a circumstance which occurred 
with one of his oldest brothers when a lad : He was sent 
with a grist to a mill, and there were so many there before 
him and he was so long detained that he became so extremely 
hungry that as soon as his grist was commenced he took 
some meal and made himself a cake, putting it into the ashes 
to bake. Being urged by hunger, he took it out before it was 
sufficiently baked, and sunk his teeth into it while it was in a 
state of dough. It adhered to his teeth and gums, and was 
so excessively hot as to scald them and make them extremely 
sore for a time ; but eventually this was thought to be a benefit, 
supposing that the heat was so severe and stuck so close 
about them that it destroyed the sensitive nerves in the teeth 
that they never decayed nor ached afterward. 

When my father had arrived at an age that he thought 
proper to settle himself, he became attached to a young 
woman in the neighborhood, of respectable family, who were 
Baptists by profession. 

She had previously become convinced of the principles 



ALPHONSUS KIRK. 221 

professed by Friends. Her name was Mary Buckingham. 
Whether she became a member amongst Friends before they 
married I have no recollection of hearing said on the subject. 
As we do not find any record* of their marriage it may be 
supposed they did not accomplish it through meeting, but she 
must have become united with Friends soon after, as I have 
often heard my father say that it was a great trial to her 
father that she should become a Quaker ; but she believing 
it required of her, went, through much opposition. Some of 
her brothers-in-law were ministers (so-called) in their society, 
strove hard to reclaim her from her delirium, calling the 
Quakers by many harsh names, bringing many charges against 
them of unbelief or deism, and such like. 

Sometime after their marriage her father was taken ill, 
which proved to be his last sickness. She felt it to be her 
duty to him to go and nurse him and do all in her power to 
relieve and comfort him on his deathbed — often sitting up 
with him and watching over him, while her anxious relatives 
made use of the opportunity of endeavoring to convince her 
of her error in embracing what they called false opinions; 
but she was favored to open her views with so much clearness 
and enabled to give an account of the hope that was in her 
with so much satisfaction, that, although her father joined 
not much in their conversation, yet it appeared that he had 
listened with interest and attention when they were not aware 
of it, as he took an opportunity with her before his death, 
telling her with great affection that he was then perfectly sat- 
isfied with her views and principles as he had heard her set 
them forth, which was a great comfort to him, and that he

222 DESCENDANTS OF 

believed that if she kept cL.se to them, they would be the 
means of preserving her in her trials through life. The in- 
terview was truly consoling to her and my dear father, en- 
couraging them to persevere in the views of religion they had 
embraced, and to endeavor to live up to them. 

I have already mentioned that my father, when he mar- 
ried, settled in East Nantmeal, on a tract of land about one 
mile from the meeting house, where he farmed and also fol- 
lowed and kept the weaving business, carried on for many 
years. There he spent a long and useful life. He died in 
his eightieth year, and was buried in Nantmeal burying- 
ground, where his two wives and a large number of his chil- 
dren and descendants are laid. He left his property to his 
only son, Isaiah, who resided on it until the advanced age of 
his eighty-second year. Deceased 1835, 12 mo., 19th. 

He left his property to his sons, Samuel and William Kirk. 
He was confined to his room one year, which he bore with 
resignation to the Divine will. He had a paralytic affection, 
so benumbing his feelings that he was not sensible of extreme 
suffering, though he had a cancer on his lip increasing fast. 

But recurring to some circumstances which took place in 
their early settlement, although but trifling, they may afford 
some amusement at least to survivors. When my father left 
his father's, he took a favorite dog with him. They soon 
found that at whichever home he considered himself most 
kindly treated he preferred being at ; so that when he felt 
himself offended at one place he would immediately go to the 
other and stay there until he met with an affront, and then he 
would go directly back again, the distance of near thirty miles, 
through a thinly inhabited country. As they had no post 
then to send letters by, they found him very convenient to 
carry intelligence between them. 



ALPHONSUS KIRK. 223 

They would their letters enclose in something which was 
water-proof, as he had to cross the Brandywine. They 
would tie them fast about his neck and then would threaten 
to whip or offend him in some way. He would go straight 
off in a few hours to his other home; thus they had great ac- 
commodation from the sagacious animal. 

At one time when there were several of my father's first 
set of children at play, his seventh child, a little girl whose 
name was Rachel, a small child about three years of age, 
became separated a short distance from the others who were 
older. When they missed her they soon went in search of 
her and found her sitting rocking herself, saying something 
in a soothing voice, as though she might have had a little 
kitten a singing to ; but when they came up close behind her 
they saw, to their great surprise, that it was a large garter 
snake coiled up in her lap, and she was stroking her dear lit- 
tle hand over it, saying, "Poor thing, thee has a striped gown 
on as well as me." It was perfectly harmless, but one of the 
older ones being alarmed, raised her up by putting their 
hands under her arms and threw it off as far as they could 
from them; it showed marked displeasure at them for disturb- 
ing its comfortable abode, and she not knowing what they 
meant did not wish to have it disturbed ; literally fulfilling 
the declaration " that the little child shall play with the asp 
and put its hand on the den of the adder." 

My father's eldest son, Caleb Kirk, married a widow 
Coates, who had three sons. She was some years older than 
he was. They also had three sons, and one daughter, who died 
young, namely : Elisha, an humble, meek, eminent minister 
amongst Friends ; Caleb and Eli Kirk. They all lived to 
have families. Tamer, his oldest daughter, who lived to be 



224 DESCENDANTS OF 

grown up, manifested a desire when young to live in some 
newly settled country or wilderness. When she arrived at 
an age that might be thought proper to marry, she was ad- 
dressed by a young man by name of Phineas Mendenhall, 
who had a prospect of going to North Carolina to settle. Her 
friends thought it had an influence on her mind to induce 
her to accept him. They married, and very soon after, they 
set off to go to North Carolina; settled in Guilford county, 
pretty much in the woods, where, no doubt, they had many 
difficulties to encounter. Her youngest sister, Mary, one of 
the twins, also was desirous from a child to live in a newly- 
settled part of the country. When grown up she wrote to her 
sister, who had been absent about seven years, that if she 
would come and make a visit to her relations and friends she 
would accompany her home and stay and live with them. 

Accordingly, Tamer came with that expectation. Our 
parents were very much tried in giving her up, but at length 
submitted. After spending a few weeks with us, they set 
off, after taking an affectionate and affecting leave of all of us. 

I well recollect it, being the first scene of the kind that I 
then had ever witnessed. Impressions on the mind of 
children, even when young, of a striking nature, are often 
lasting, although but trifling incidents. 

I have no recollection of my sister Tamer before she went 
away, I being an infant; but now remember her well. She 
was a good looking, portly person. She pulled my first teeth 
when I shed them. This circumstance, though small, im- 
pressed her more fully on my mind. 

I have retained the recollections of a young man of the 
name of Jehu Wickersham, who was acquainted with my 
sister Mary. He went to Carolina, sometime after her, where 



ALPHONSUS KIRK. 225 

they renewed their attachment and were married, and settled 
there for a time ; but the State of Georgia opened for settle- 
ment, inducing many to move there. 

My sisters, and their families, were both of them amongst 
those who went about three hundred miles from their settle- 
ments into the State of Georgia, to a place settled by Joseph 
Matlock and Mattock's Settlement. 

There they lived in peaceable possession of their homes, 
undisturbed by the natives for a considerable time, until there 
was a new purchase made by Government, with which the 
Indians seemed dissatisfied. 

My brothers-in-law, with others, bought land in it, as it 
was considered very good. Many were induced to make 
settlements on it, to clear and sow it with grain; but the 
frequent incursions of the Indians was cause of great dis- 
couragement to them, so that it was deemed best by many 
not to reside on it. 

They, therefore, left, but when the grain that they had sown 
was ripe they thought they would go there and gather it, the 
distance not being far from the first settlement where they 
resided. Sister Tamer, her husband and three sons went for 
that purpose, leaving their two daughters behind at home. 
Early one morning sister went to milk a cow they had with 
them. While her hands were thus engaged a party of Indians 
lying in wait fired on them, and put an end to her useful life ; 
they also killed her eldest son. The youngest they took in 
charge and kept in captivity about two years. They adopted 
him and were kind to him, and when redemption was offered 
him he had become so attached to them and their manner of 
life that it required some persuading to get him from them. 
The father and other son made their escape. This awfully 
trying circumstance made such an impression on the minds 
15

of sister Mary and husband that they came, as soon as they 
could get away to North Carolina, to their former settlement. 
In that neighborhood they lived for many years. They of 
late years moved with their children and their families to In- 
diana, where they are settled, and from the latest accounts are 
both living, she being now in the eighty-sixth year of her age.* 

In the year 1777 my brother, Daniel Williams, (he wasmy 
mother's son of her first husband), and Mary his wife, with two 
little daughters and my brother-in-law, fJohn Williams with 
his wife Sarah (a twin sister to Mary Wickersham), and a 
little daughter, set off in company together with a prospect 
of seeking a place of abode. They traveled on together through 
some difficulties and perplexities, being in the time of the 
Revolutionary war. When they got to North Carolina, and 
the twin sisters were rejoiced to meet with a prospect which 
they, before they left, had of settling there. Brother D. looked 
toward going to Georgia, which they did. 

John and Sarah were getting themselves fixed as well as 
they could under their limited circumstances, when, alas, sick- 
ness seized her so severe that she was taken off in a few days; 
often expressing her great desire to be taken out of this 
troublesome world, and left it as one going to sleep on the 12th 
day of 12th mo., 1778. Thus in less than two years were his 
prospects changed, showing clearly the uncertainty of all hu- 
man dependence. He was then left with two children, the 
youngest not one year old. He struggled along with them 
there awhile and then came back with them amongst their 
relatives.

Brother Daniel, when they arrived in Georgia, it being 
about the middle of the 12th mo., went to his wife's uncle's, 
there being several of them settled there of the name of 
Embree. 

After being there awhile he purchased 100 acres of good 
land with some impovments, within the old purchase, where 
they settled comfortably, except being near to the frequent 
incursions of the Indians, who almost every year caused some 
part of the settlements to break, but they were not injured 
by them. He spent the remainder of his life there in a place 
called Wrightsborough. He frequently wrote to his relatives 
and twice visited us, bringing his wife with him. He lived 
until about the year 1800, when he departed in peace, leaving 
behind there his widow and seven daughters. Their only 
son, they buried before they left Nantmeal. 

In the course of a few years, the mother, with her daugh- 
ters, all moved to the State of Ohio, and settled in the neigh- 
borhood of Stillwater, all near together, except one who 
settled in the western part of the State. When on a visit to 
the meeting of Friends in that part of the country, in the 
year 1807, I had the satisfaction of seeing them all, in their 
own habitations. They were then, most of them, married 
and pretty comfortably settled where they generally remained, 
to dwell. Their mother lived to a good old age and died in 
peace. 

Sister Lydia, married William Humphreys, a brother to 
Mary Williams, Daniel's wife. They lived at Robinson or 
Forest. Had no family of their own, but Sister Sarah's 
daughter found them as parents to her. They took her and 
raised her, and in their advanced age she, in return of their 
kindness, staid with them as a daughter and took care of 
them as long as they lived. They have both been gone sev- 



228 DESCENDANTS OP 

eral years, and she, Catharine, is married to John Martin, of 
Uwchland. 

Brother Isaiah died 19th of 12th mo., 1835, and was interred 
on the 20th, in Nantmeal burying-ground, after which a 
meeting was held. 

Elizabeth Kirk, daughter of S Richards, his valua- 
ble companion, was removed by death, 2d mo.. 28tb, 183 — . 
She came forth in the ministry in early life, not very long 
after her marriage, under many discouragements and sore 
conflicts, but was favored to get along to the satisfaction of her 
friends. We once went in company together and attended 
the Yearly Meeting in New York, taking meetings on the 
way, I believe to the satisfaction of her friends. She was 
also interred at Nantmeal, and a solemn meeting held. 

Their daughter, Elizabeth Garrettson, resided in Yorktown, 
Pa. She died 10th mo., 31st, 1335, after an illness of three 
weeks, leaving an affectionate companion and three little 
daughters behind to mourn their loss. The younger one 
died after her mother. 

Their son, William Kirk, departed this life on the 27th of 
the 1 mo., 1837, after an illness of one week, of bilious fever, 
which he bore with resignation. He was interred in East 
Nantmeal burying-ground. 

My father, William Kirk, in the first settlement of that 
part of the country, took up a tract of land about a mile 
from East Nantmeal meeting house. He put a small cabin 
on it and began in the woods, with a small family and limited 
means of subsistence. His wife, a sensible, valuable woman, 
united with him in the utmost endeavors to procure a liveli- 
hood. They had many difficulties to encounter at first, while 
in the wilderness, but were favored to succeed beyond his ex- 
pectations, and were enjoying many comforts, when, alas, 



ALPHONSUS KIRK. 229 

sickness commenced. His beloved companion was removed 
by death in 1752, and three of his children out of ten were 
all taken from him in the course of three months — a sore 
bereavement to be stripped and tried. I well remember to 
hear him speak of it with a sorrowful heart when I was 
young. 

There was one circumstance I often remember to have 
heard him relate, and never without shedding tears. It was 
when he had a small portion of his land cleared so as to till 
crops, but small. A very severe wiuter came on, snow three 
or four feet deep and much drifted ; traveling through the 
woods difficult. When their limited stock of provisions had 
nearly come to an end, my father set out in hopes of procur- 
ing some provisions ; rode all day without obtaining any and 
was quite discouraged. His wife, a woman of resolution, said 
she would try and get some. 

He being not well staid with the chillren. (I think they 
had two children and a brother of hers a little lad). She got 
on horsback (they having one horse and a cow), and set out 
early in the morning through deep snow as high as the fences. 
She got with great difficulty as far as Ashbridge's Mill be- 
fore she could obtain any. Here she met with it. She in- 
formed him of their situation ; that she had no money, but 
they had a crop of grain in the ground and she had a piece of 
home spun linen — she would pledge that. The friend said he 
wished for no other security than her word, and furnished her 
with as much flour as she could take with her, and offered to 
supply them until harvest. It took her all night to get 
back to their cabin. Father was anxiously looking for her. 
The children had been crying with hunger, and he had noth- 
ing to give them. He thought of her kneading bowl. He 



230 DESCENDANTS OF 

took it and scraped it, washed the small portion of flour off it, 
and boiled the water and made porridge of it to satisfy their 
hunger, so they went to sleep. When she arrived in safety 
their hearts were filled with gratitude for the favor. 

In the course of time feeling great difficulty in struggling 
along with a family of small children, he thought best to 
marry again to a widow with one son. Her name was Sib- 
billa Williams. They had nine children of us — the most of 
us lived to the age of maturity. 

I* was married in the year 1784, on the 20th day of 10th 
month, in the 22d year of my age, to Philip Price, Jr., and 
went to reside with him near Darby, in the house with his 
father and mother — Philip and Hannah Price. We stayed 
with them near three years ; they then purchased a small 
farm for us at West Nantmeal, seven miles from the meeting 
which I was raised a member of. The place was a pleasant 
one and good land, but the distance from meeting, with very 
few friends near us and the people generally dissipated in 
their habits, it was not desirable to bring up a family in such 
a neighborhood. My husband heard of a place for sale in 
East Bradford, went to see it, was pleased with it and desired 
to purchase it. He went to consult his parents about it and 
get his father to go with him to see it, expecting to be from 
home a week. It was on first day. We attended our meeting 
and went to our mother's afterwards. She and her youngest 
daughter, Sister Sibbilla, lived together in the same house 
with our brother, Isaiah Kirk, and family. My father hav- 
ing lived to 78 years of age, died 2d of 3d month, 1787. 

My dear mother went home with me to bear me company 
in my husband's absence. We passed the week very com- 
fortably. She was as well as usual for her to be, but was taken

sick about nine o'clock that night with a very severe pain 
in her arm, which struck through to her breast. I gave her 
some camphor and bathed her with it, after which she seemed a 
little easier, and lay till daybreak, when she arose and dressed 
herself, and prepared to go home before meeting. Upon 
my telling her that she was not well enough to go, she replied, 
"If I should not live, I have a desire to beat my own home." 
I told her we would do all we could for her. She said she 
knew that, " but I have a great choice in being at home if I 
can get there." 

She grew worse fast. My husband set off immediately to 
let our brother and family know. He and Sister Sibbilla 
came to see her as soon as they could, but she was past con- 
versing much — mentioned some property which she said 
ought to have been attended to before being laid on a sick

Her remains were conveyed to her house and buried from 
there, at East Nantmeal burying-ground, after which a sol- 
emn meeting was held. 

My friends of the Monthly Meeting of Concord, thought it 
right to acknowledge and recommend me to the Quarterly 
Meeting of Ministers and Elders as an appropriate Minister. 
A minute to that import was furnished the Select Quarterly 
Meeting in the fourth month, 1802. 



A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE ANCESTORS OF 
ALPHONSUS KIRK. 



[According to tradition,* it being by no means a historical 
fact, we have the following : Dr. Robert Church, a native 
of England, soon after his marriage, joined the English army 
as a surgeon, and was in the Scottish rebellion of 1556 ; after 
which he settled in Scotland. Here he took the name of 
Kirk, which in that language signifies Church. He had a 
son, Thomas, who had three sons, Robert, Roger and Timothy, 
all of whom returned to Ireland in the year 1631. 

Assuming that the above, so far as the first and second 
generations are concerned, is altogether traditional, we com- 
mence with the third, existing in the British Islands, which is 
a starting-point in the genealogy of this family of Kirks that 
can be relied upon with as much certainty as any other 
historical fact, based on documentary and corroborative evi- 
dence.] 

FIRST GENERATION. 
1. Roger Kirk resided in the town of Lurgan, Province of 
Ulster, county of Armagh, Ireland. He was a Friend, and, 
in the year 1675, was fined, with many others, because he 
would not swear as a juror (see Besse's Sufferings of Friends,

ALPHONSUS KIRK. 233 



SECOND GENERATION. 

CHILD OF ROGER AND ELIZABETH KIRK, OF LURGAN, IRELAND. 

2. Alphonsus, born in Ireland, 16 — . Migrated to America. 
Proud groups him with Friends who arrived in 1682, and 
settled on the Brandy wine creek and "about Center," that is 
west of the Brandywine (see Vol. 1, 218); but there are 
family documents which show that his arrival was a few years 
later. 

Alphonsus took passage from Belfast on the 11th day of 
11th mo., 1688, landed at Jamestown, Virginia, on the 12th 
of 1st mo., 1689, and arrived in Pennsylvania the 29th of 3d 
mo. following. He brought with him certificates, copies of 
which follow. They were (1864) in possession of Sibbilla 
Embree. 

" Whereas, the bearer hereof, Alphonsus Kirk, having an 
intention to transport himself into the Province of Pennsyl- 
vania, in America, at the request of the said Alphonsus, we 
think it our duty thus to certify concerning him. That he 
hath lived with his father from his infancy until now, and for 
aught we know, hath been subject and obsequious to his pa- 
rents ; and since his convincement he hath belonged to our 
Meetings, and hath behaved himself quiet and honest in his 
deportment and dealings here, and for anything we do know, 
or now understand, we having made inquiry concerning him, 
and he saith himself, is free and clear of all women here, on 
the account of, or concerning marriage or anything relating 
thereto. We leave him, and advise him to the measure of 
the grace of God in his own heart, to which if he would sub- 
mit, it will teach him to deny all ungodliness.

Alphonsus was furnished with a certificate by his parents, 
to wit : 

" This is to certify that we are willing our son, above named, 
should take this journey herein mentioned; desiring the Lord 
to be his preserver, and leave him to the disposal of the Al- 
mighty. And if it be his fortune to marry, we give our con- 
sent, providing, it be with a Friend in unity with Friends, ac- 
cording to the order of truth. 

" Roger Kirk, 

Elizabeth Kirk." 
On page 25, of a small volume, entitled " The Family," 
written by Hon. Eli K. Price, we find the following : 

" It was the good ' fortune ' of Alphonsus Kirk to marry, 
and that in accordance with the condition imposed by his 
parents ; therefore, with their consent ; for on the 23d of 
12th month, 1692-3, he did marry Abigail Sharpley, a Friend 
and daughter of Adam Sharpley, according to the order of 
truth, at the house ot her father, on Shilpot Creek. The 
marriage certificate describes Alphonsus as being of Brandy- 
wine Creek. 

Proud mentions Adam Sharplay's arrival under date of 
1682, and as a settler on the east side of Brandywine creek, 
Newcastle county.

129. William, born 1788, 9, 17 ; died 1860, 1, 27. Married 
Hannah Fisher. "He was one of the early Westtown 
scholars, and left home, before he was of age, to teach a 
school for colored children, under the care of Friends, in 
Philadelphia. 

" His ideas soon became enlarged and changed, and he 
studied medicine with Dr. Joseph Parrish, whom we remember 
not only as the best of physicians, but as the kindest and 
blandest of gentlemen, who always acted on the most liberal, 
sincere and humane convictions. 

" William graduated at the University of Pennsylvania, 
when its chairs were filled by the eminent names of Rush, 
Physick, Wistar, James and Coxe. He made a voyage to 
China as surgeon of the Lancaster Robinson, one of the first 
of Thomas P. Cope's ships, and escaping capture, returned to 
a good market after the war of 1812 had commenced. He 



244 ANCESTORS OP 

attempted another such voyage before the war ended, in the 
brig trader Donalson ; but she being capsized in a gale and dis- 
abled, returned to port to refit, and while detained the news of 
the peace of 1815 arrived, and, sailing soon after, carried the 
first news of it to China. He spent about three years in Paris, 
in assiduous attention upon the lectures and hospitals of that 
great seat of medical science, returned to Philadelphia and 
commenced practice with the best qualifications and brightest 
prospects. But after a few years he allowed himself to be 
diverted from the regular pursuit of his profession to other 
occupations, changed his residence from place to place, and 
hence failed to acquire that wealth that otherwise would have 
crowned his professional services and placed his family in 
affluence. After years lost to the profession, part of the time 
in the Ohio legislature, he resumed its practice in Cincinnati, 
and pursued it with conscientious devotion until his death, 
and always won the attachment and confidence of his 
patients. 

"His disposition was most kind and social, and his manners 
always gentle and without affectation, were the most polished 
and attractive. He had known much of the world and its 
philosophy, but lived to acknowledge the faith of his mother 
to be the most truthful and beautiful that the world had ever 
received, and in that faith had the belief of our reunion in 
immortality." — {The Family, •page 37-38, by Hon. Eli K.

though sometimes engaged in teaching, and preserved through 
life the simplicity of dress and manners in which he was ed- 
ucated in his youth. He was a son after the heart of his 
parents ; and only ever differed from them, or seemed to, 
when the Society of Friends in this country was rent in twain 
in 1827 and '28, but this separation estranged them not in af- 
fection nor individually in faith. If the life of early Friends 
was a return to the simplicity and truthfulness of apostolic 
days, then that of our brother is like unto theirs." — (The

ping house of Thomas P. Cope, and for a year with J. C. 
Jones, Oakford & Co., to prepare especially for the China 
trade. That trade becoming greatly depressed when he be- 
came of age, he decided not to waste his time, and to gratify 
a different aspiration, studied law with John Sergeant, from 
whom he ever received the kindest treatment. His profession 
he has uninterruptedly pursued to the present time. He was 
at first best prepared in mercantile law, which he began to read 
in the counting-room ; but the people identified him, after his 
admission, more with real estate, aud to land titles he has most 
devoted his professional life. In 1853 the old city, as it was 
under Penn's charter, of two miles square, de nanded reforms 
in the fire department, and from the evils of the disconcert of 
action of about a dozen municipalities, with differing laws, 
into which Philadelphia was divided. He was put upon the 
Senatorial ticket, against his own remonstrances, and Mathias 
W. Baldwin and William C. Patterson upon the House ticket, 
and they were elected over the regular candidates of both po-

litical parties. The Consolidation Act was the result, and 
during the three years E. K. Price remained in the Senate of 
Pennsylvania he legislated with a special view to the security 
of titles to real estate; to regulate charitable and religious 
uses and trusts, so as to place all religious societies upon one 
equal platform before the law ; to put the rights of women 
upon a better footing, and to repress legislative corruption. 

With the same object of security of title to real estate, he 
wrote and published a professional work, and prepared acts 
of Assembly at other times. He wrote, and with the aid of 
his brother Philip, printed and circulated the Memoir of 
Philip and Rachel Price, which was reprinted at Glasgow in 
" The British .friend ;" and wrote and printed for our rela- 
tives the Memorial of "Rebecca," his daughter, and of her 
mother, and now presents them this contribution toward their 
family history. — (Volume entitled " The Family," — By Hon. 
Eli K. Price. 

He ceased to be a member with Friends by the best 
act of his life, that which gave him one of the best of women 
to be one of the best of wives. This was at the period of the 
separation ; a circumstance that made each division less at- 
tractive to those who did not sympathize with the controversy. 
Having no unity with the disunity, and wishing the society 
not to be responsible for his acts or writings, he has remained 
in isolation, but honoring and loving the good in whomsoever 
he finds it. 

Professionally, he has had much to do with questions of 
property growing out of the separation ; always giving his 
counsels in favor of peace, and it is with great satisfaction 
that he bears the testimony that no religious bodies, so much 
at variance, were ever more governed by pacific counsels in 
favor of peace ; so that forbearance and time rather than litiga-

tion have composed legal rights, and generally left the prop- 
erty with the greater local number having it in charge. He 
has often queried to himself whether the sages of the Society 
of the last century would not have weathered the storms of 
this without shipwrecking the unity of the Society ; and is 
inclined to think they would. 

One near and dear to the writer always seemed to h m 
more than others deeply centered in that true wisdom which 
alone could have averted the catastrophe ; and that came by 
her deep affections and true parental instincts, and also from 
Him whom she watched as her constant guide from early in- 
fancy. His mother, then at Westtown, and in the Select 
Meetings, was a constant, but nearly silent witness to much 
that was passing ; and as became her position as a minister 
of the Gospel, preserved her wonted serenity, and in the deep 
recess of her soul heeded only the guidance of that Light 
which the winds of controversy could not reach, nor cause its 
constant flame to flare or flicker, or prove delusive to her 
steadfast mind. Silence and resignation, during this period 
of severe trial, she felt to be her allotted portion, " endeavor- 
ing to know the Divine will,* * * * on leaving all to Him that 
hath the key of David ; He thatopeneth and no man shutteth, 
and shutteth and no man rightly openeth." Memoir 128.

135. Isaac, born 1799, 11, 30 ; died 1825, 8, 25. Married 
Susanna Payne. 

"He died in his twenty-sixth year of an attack of fever, 
obscure in its symptoms ; was faithfully attended by Dr. 
Darlington, and by our brother William, who devoted all of 
many days and nights to be with him, to soothe and allay suf- 
fering. For the few years he was in business, farming at this 
homestead, Isaac evinced unusual enterprise and capacity.

Had he lived to continue as he began, he would have been 
successful and prosperous. He adhered while he lived, to the 
faith, practice and example of his parents ; and though, in 
his youth, very playful and highly humorous in his disposi- 
tion, and irresistible in his power to provoke mirth, he never 
did aught to give his parents pain. He died in the faith and 
hope of the righteous. — {The Family, by Hon. Eli K. Price, 
page 41.) 

136. Philip M., born 1802,7,7. Married Matilda Greentree. 
Was the youngest son of Philip and Rachel Price. He had 
the most prolonged and best school education at Westtown ; 
was fond of mathematics and general reading. Studied 
medicine with his friend, Dr. John D. Godman, and graduated 
in medicine in the University of Pennsylvania. 

He practiced his profession for a time ; but to the exposure 
and labors of a country physician, he preferred the office of 
Surveyor of Spring Garden, which he held for many years, 
and laid out the streets and made the plans of that district. 
His interest in building and railroad, and other improvements, 
amounted almost to a passion, sometimes pursued to his own 
injury and at the imminent risk of health and life. He was 
active in starting the Pennsylvania Railroad, and it may be 
said that the Erie Railroad, which at this day sees its com- 
pletion, would not at times have lived without him. And 
now tributary roads also claim his attention. May he long 
live to be useful in that tempered moderation that insures 
safety and happiness! — {The Family, oage 41-42, by Hon. 
Eli K. 'Price.)
