I have some Kirkpatricks of Decatur, Brown County, Ohio, which is very close to Liberty Township and Cherry Fork of Adams County, but I don't think they are A.M's immediate family.I have JOHN KIRKPATRICK (b.Jan.20. 1785 in Va.-d.Oct.4, 1857 in Ohio)married to MARGARET CAMPBELL (1789-1859).Both John and Margaret are buried in the Decatur Cemetery. The children I have listed for John and Margaret are:
William Kirkpatrick (born abt. 1818) Samuel Kirkpatrick (born abt. 1822) Jane Kirkpatrick (May 19, 1824-May 31, 1903) John Kirkpatrick (b. abt. 1827) Campbell Kirkpatrick (b. abt. 1829) Margaret Kirkpatrick (b. abt. 1834)
Given the location, they are probably close kin to A.M. Kirkpatrick.
