We are searching for the unknown first wife of Samuel H. Kirk shown in chart below.
Samuel H. Kirk born 1780 in Maryland.One of his daughters was Mary Kirk who married Rev. Samuel Beene."Reminiscences and Meandering Thoughts" written by Martha Margaret Beene Walker (1855-1938).She writes:"My Mother's maiden name was Mary Kirk.I had only a slight acquaintance with my mother's people.Her mother dying when she was small, she was reared an orphan by her aunt, Anna Wilson.I remember but little of Aunt Wissie, as we children always called her, she dying when I was small."
Mary Kirk Beene named one son Samuel Wilson Beene and the name was used by other descendants.Mary Kirk Beene named a daughter Anna Byron Beene.Byron may have been the maiden name of Anna Wilson.If Samuel and Anna Wilson were aunt and uncle of Mary Kirk Beene, then either Samuel Wilson's sister or Anna's sister was the wife of Samuel H. Kirk, my third GGfather.
On the 1850 census of Marion County, Tennessee there was a Samuel Wilson age 75 and Anna Wilson, age 64.They were in house #550 and Samuel and Mary Kirk Beene were in house #555, so they were neighbors.
