    John Hugh Kirkpatrick Pvt
    Birth: May 1741 in Lancaster, PA
    Death: Mar 1812 in Bulls Gap, Hawkins, TN
    Burial: Bent Creek Cemetery, near Whitesburg, Hawkins, TN
    John married Jane Wilkins of Donegal TWP, Lancaster Co, PA, who was daughter of Capt. John Wilkins of the Revolution. See Dr. Wm. Henry Egle's "Pennsylvania Genealogies, pp. 182, 522 and 523. They settled in Virginia in Augusta Co (later Botetourt and Rockingham) where eight of their children were born: David, 1760; Marriah, 1762; Hugh, 1763; Rachel, 1765; John, 1766; Jacob, 1771; James, 1773; and Wilkins, 1775. They pioneered in 1778 to Watauga District of NC, later East TN, and settled near Bull's Gap where their ninth child, Hannah, was born in 1779.
    He died near Bull's Gap in Mar 1812 and is buried with his wife in Bent Creek Cemetery, near Whitesburg, now Hamblen Co, TN. The graves are marked with a War Dept. Government Monument, which was consolidated with the old limestone monument erected in 1812, into a a large memorial which was dedicated in Sep 1938 by the Samuel Doak Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution of Morristown, TN. It was unveiled by John's oldest known living descendant at the time, Mrs. Cassandra Kirkpatrick McCollough (great granddaughter) of 1612 Forest Avenue, Knoxville,TN, on 18 Sep 1938. The service was attended by several hundred people and a number of descendants came from the states of California, Missouri, Georgia, Kentucky and Noth Carolina The records of John's Revolutionary War Service were located by E. Spears McCollough, her son, by research in North Carolina records at Raleigh, NC. The monument is rectangular with a triangular portion at the top on which is the representation of an American Flaa with the Words:
    "Hero-Revolutionary War." On the lower portion on the east side:
    John
    Kirkpatrick
    Pvt. N. C. Troops
    Rev. War
    May 1741
    March 1812
    wife
    Jane Wilkins
    On the back, or west side, on the triangular part at the top:
    John Kirkpatrick pioneered from Rockingham County,
    Virginia, cut "Wilderness Road" to Watauga District
    of North Carolina and settled near Bull's Gap, Tenn.,
    in 1778 bringing first wagon to this section, and
    built first Presbyterian Church "Salem" same year.
    There is no inscription on the lower portion of the one on the west side. These new stones enclose the old limestone monument erected in 1812, or some time soon after his death. The War Department by letter of 13 Sep 1937 turned down the request of E. Spears McCollough that the grave be marked John Hugh Kirkpatrick but rather chose John Kirkpatrick as that was how he served. The Knoxville News-Sentinel of Thurs, 15 Sep 1938 previewed the dedication to take place the following Sun, the 18th.
    Other descendants expected to attend were 6 year old Sallie Wilson (great-great-great-great granddaughter, who resides with her grandfather, J.B.M. Kirkpatrick of Kirkwood Street in Burlington); Roger William Kirkpatrick, Jonesboro Attorney, to speak; Mrs. Mary E. Reed of Huntington Beach, CA; Mrs. Josephine A. Fleming, Lexington, KY; Miss Mattie Kirkpatrick, Asheville; and Frank Kirkpatrick, St. Louis.
