Information on Charles Kilpatrick

VA-6 Charles Kilpatrick made a will, dated 19 May 1767, and proven at Staunton, Augusta Co., VA on 18 August 1767. He left his estate to his wife, Elizabeth; sons, Roger and Alexander; daughter, Elizabeth; and sons-in-law, John Hogshead and Robert Cunningham. Their daughters were Elizabeth; Sarah, m Rev Samuel Davis, she d 15SE1757; Ann m John Hogshead; Martha, m Robert Cunningham; and Jean, m William Cunningham.

There is also a will for son, Roger Kilpatrick, b ca 1735. His will was signed 15JE1797 and proved at Lewisburg, Greenbrier Co., (W)VA in OC1797. He left his estate to his wife, Jean; daughters, Nancy (Morris), Lettiss (Paul), Margaret (Bartin), & Jean. Sons were James and Thomas. Friends, Thomas Kilpatrick and John Hutchinson, served as executors. The line of son, Thomas, has been worked out in considerable detail by a descendant, Rev. Cyrus Orion Kirkpatrick, and published in TAR in 1931. The surname is spelled Kil and Killpatrick on many early documents but seems to be consistently Kirkpatrick after approximately 1800. During the Revolutionary War, there was a Roger Kilpatrick listed for Augusta Co., VA in Capt. Trimbles Company. Many in this branch moved from (W)VA to the northwest, OH and beyond.

While no will has been found for the other son of Charles, Alexander, also b ca 1735, he can be traced by various documents. Alexander is recorded in Augusta Co., VA as early as 1763 when he served as a witness, with Charles (his father ?) Kirkpatrick, to a Cunningham land transaction. Both surnames were recorded as Kirkpatrick at this early date. Alexander married, possibly for the second time, ca 1772, as Alexander and Mary Kilpatrick deeded land to George Moffet in 1776. It seems likely that Alexander lived on the "home place" until he moved over to Greenbrier Co., (W)VA, ca 1787, with his brother Roger. After Roger died in 1797 Alexander and family left Greenbrier Co, (W)VA, moved south to Anderson Co., TN, and bought land from Andrew Jackson. Deed records in Anderson Co., TN suggest that Alexander d ca 1806 and that Mary, possibly a second wife, lived until ca 1825. Military service in the Revolutionary War is possible since there is both an Alexander Kilpatrick and Kirkpatrick in Capt. Thomas Smith's Company of Augusta Co.,VA.

The family listing, for the branch of Roger Kilpatrick, as prepared by Cyrus Orion K. and published in TAR, contains over 400 names; and a listing for the branch of Alexander Kilpatrick, as prepared by the editor (GMK), contains more than 300 names.
