No, the Kilbreath name is not Indian. It is Scottish from the Clan (Tribe) Galbraith. With a rich heritage back to the 12th century in Scotland. So, if you have dark eyes and find yourself sitting around cross-legged, don't blame us. The Kilbreaths are all fair complected, with beautiful blue eyes. ;-) Just teasing.
Let's go back to your original post. You were looking for information about Tennie Lee Kilbreath d/o a William and Mary Kilbreath. I believe that would be William H. Kilbreath and Mary (Allen) Kilbreath. William & Mary (the couple not the college) were married Jan.3, 1871 in Benton Co. Tenn., where they both were born. I have no information about them after their marriage, except for the fact that they left Tennessee. I have been looking for them in Arkansas, because after the Civil War many families from Benton Co., TN moved to Arkansas. Among those were William's sister Sarah and her husband F M Wimberly. They are buried in Clay Co. Ark. It would make sense that if Tennie Lee Kilbreath was born July 16,1873 that she would have been the 1st child of the newly weds. However, I could only speculate whether she was born in Tenn. or Ark. Your post was the first substantial clue as to where I might find this missing link from our family. If one of their sons was your husband's grandfather, that would make William H Kilbreath his great-grandfather. My gggrandfather was James A Kilbreath, William's oldest brother. That would make your husband and I distant relatives. William had another older brother Molten A. Kilbreath. If you or your husband have any information about his great-grandfather, or if they have other living relatives that might be able to provide information I would like to know about it. If you would like information about William's brothers go to www.kilbrethfamily.homestead.com/opening.html I have a website pretty much devoted to them.
