Name: John KIRK
Birth: ABT 1695 in Scotland
Hello again Margaret, (email 5 Apr 2000) from Edgar C. Smith of Carmel, CA
Glad to make the connection with you and to learn that you have my little paper on early Kirks. I share what I can with anyone who is interested.
I have only briefly looked at your rootsweb data (I don't have a personal web page). Seems to be some confusion about the parents of John and Thomas born about 1727 - and I believe (no real data) they were brothers. Note Fauquier court records:
1763 June 24. Neil Jamieson & Co. plt agn Thomas Kirk dft. L10 debt. Court said to satisfy this Thomas Kirk should pay L2, 4 shillings, 6 pence, halfpence with interest at 5% from 1 Oct. 1761 until paid.
1763 June 24. The same against John Kirk. L17 debt to be satisfied by payment of L8, 7 shillings, one pence, halfpence, with intererst at 5% from 25 Sept 1762 until paid.
I'll have to look more carefully later...
