I am seeking information about Susan G. Kirkpatrick, who was born Oct. 20, 1828 in St. Charles County, Missouri and died Feb. 27, 1909 in Henry County, Missouri. She married on Oct. 22, 1845 in St. Charles Co. to William A. Abington. They lived for many years in St. Charles Co., but by 1870 had moved to Henry Co. Their children: 1. William M., b. ca. 1846 2. Tabitha Susan, b. ca. 1848 3. James Milton, b. Sept. 20, 1851 4. Elizabeth ("Lizzie"), b. ca. 1854 5. Joseph F., b. ca. July 31, 1856 6. Luther, b. ca. 1858; prob. d.y. 7. Eliza, b. ca. 1864 8. Mary, b. ca. 1866 9. Leland Carter, b. Nov. 3, 1868
There is the record of a marriage between William T. Kirkpatrick and "Mrs." Matilda Wooton in St. Charles County on Dec. 16, 1827. Matilda is listed as head of household in the 1830 census and William is nowhere to be found. It seems likely he died before 1830. The 1830 census also lists one female child in Matilda's household under 5 years of age. Was that person Susan? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
