I'm hoping that someone is familiar with the Kuykendalls who changed their name to Kirkendall and lived in Ohio and Indiana. Let me just start with one in particular:Henry Kuykendall,Jr. Born 05 Nov 1765 in Hampshire Co. West Virginia and died 30 Nov 1818 in Circleville, Ross Co. Ohio.His first wife's name in unknown by whom they had the following children: (1)Isaac (Kirkendall) Kuykendall born 15 Jan 1787/9 in Virginia.(2) Elizabeth Kuykendall born 15 Jan 1787 in Ohio.(3) Abraham Kuykendall born ca 1789 Ross Co. Ohio. (4)Henry Kuykendall born ca 1792 in Ross Co. OHio. (5)Margaret "Peggy" Kuykendall date of birth unknown, married 08 Oct 1812 in Ross Co. Ohio to James Thompson. (6)Rebecca Kuykendall date of birth unknown married 22 Dec 1802 perhaps in Ross Co. Ohio John Stipp. Isaac's first wife died and he married secnd to a widow Elizabeth "Betsy" (surname?) Homes born 25 Nov 1777 in PA, died 27 Aug 1857 Circleville, Ross Co. Ohio by whom he had the following children: (7)Catherine "Kitty" Kuykendall no further information (8) Sarah Kuykendall no further information.(9) Jacob (Kirkendall) Kuykendall born 1804 Ohio (Ross County?) (10) John (Kirkendall) Kuykendall born 09 May 1808 Ross Co. OH. (11) Archibald Kuykendall born 19 Dec 1811 Ross Co. OH(12) Mary "Polly" Kuykedall born 1814 in Ohio? Somewhere I read that the daughter Rebecca was the 12th child but am unable to establish that as a fact.
I need to clarify the child #9 Jacob (Kirkendall) Kuykendall born 1804 who supposedly married Rebecca Jane Botkin and went to Indiana.
On the 1850 census Plain, Kosciusko, IN Isaac above child Isaac Kirkendall age 63 #1, widow of Sally Rhodes who he married in Ross Co. Ohio 05 May 1823, is living in the household of Jacob Kirkendall and Rebecca Jane whose surname is believed by me to be Botkin who has the following children: (a)Abraham born 1834 OH (b) Isaac 1835 IN(c) Henry 1837 IN(d) John 1843 IN(e) Jacob 1849 IN. Also living with them is Lydia Ann Botkin 1840 OH.Thomas H. Botkin 1842 OHand William Botkin 1844 IN. Note - OH is for Ohio and IN is for Indiana for anyone who didn't catch that.
In 1860 Plain, Kosciuko Co. INJacob age 73 is still living with Jacob and Rebecca.The household includes Lydia (Botkin) Hall age 20,Thomas S. Bodkin 18, William S. Bodkin 16 as well as Mary Dillon 5 (born 1855.Is Rebecca Jane mother of the Botkin/Bodkin children?If so, who was the first wife of Jacob Kirkendall?
Question?Is Jacob the son of Isaac?Or is Isaac, Jacob's Uncle?
Thanks for any help with these Kirkendall families. Betty Kuykendall Price
