I am descended from John P. Kirby and his wife, Elizabeth, Betsy, or Betty.
They were in White County (Sparta) Tennessee, early 1800's until their deaths after 1870 or so.
Their children were Henry, Alexander, Ruben, Eliza, John, and others. Ruben married his cousin, also a Kirby, Permilia Ann (Millie Ann) Kirby, in 1853, Sparta, White County. (Who was her father and mother?) They had children, William T., John M., Susannah or Susan Ann, and Polk Davis (my line). William T. and his family moved to Cumberland County near the Kearley family and was called Kearley on the census. We have Waymon Kirby in our line. Ruben and Millie moved to Rule, Carroll County, Arkansas, around 1890, and their children moved to Texas, Grayson Co., Collin Co.,Dallas Co., Denton Co.
Ruben's brothers moved to the North Texas area, as well.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
