I have traced my family to Jesse Kilpatrick, born 1768 in Monmouth, New Jersey. I haven't been able to get any further. He is also listed in a family tree as having been born in Maryland. I have read that persons were sentenced to "transportation" for criminal offenses by the British to North American colonies and wonder if Jesse's father fell in that category and that's why there's no records readily available for him. Any help would be appreciated.
