Surname Saturday - KIRK

Surname Saturday - KIRK

On previous Saturdays, we have reported all of the known ancestor lineage surnames through  the great-great grandparent surnames (see earlier Saturday Surname posts in the left column, scroll down - back into 2009) and we have started on the next batch.

Today we finish the "round of thirty-two" (scroll down a bit...) - 3rd great-grandparents - We know and will have reported on 9 of the sixteen Male lines (four are from Denmark) we know and will be reporting on nine new female surname lines of the possible sixteen: VESTERSTROM, SPRANG, LORD, KIMMERLING, FIRESTONE, SCHWYHART, LEE, JONES, and KIRK.

Today, we will look briefly at KIRK.

Williams was my mother's paternal grandmother's surname. Nettie WILLIAM's father, Elias WILLIAMS and her mother was Ann Eliza DUNCAN. Ann was the daughter of Braxton DUNCAN (1798-1859) and  Araminta KIRK (1813-1855). Araminta was born in Scotland, and died in Duncan Prairie, Mercer Co, Illinois.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
