Independence Co., AR Marriage Records FTM CD#244 1850-1900
James Edwin KIRKPATRICK m: Lucretia SMITH on 25 Jan 1857 Independence Co., AR
When he married Lucrita Smith, they were married by Alfred Brettion in Lawerence Co., AR on January 25, 1857. James was 21 years old and Lucrita was 18 years old.


James and Lucrita moved to Wilmington, California during the 1880's.

The following information is from a letter from Mildred Flowers: The second marriage was a woman from Louisiana named Lucretia, of French ancestry and who died during the Civil War. James and Lucretia had four children but two died of yellow fever. When she died of fever, the two surviving children by her were sent to France to the dead wifes kenfolks. Their names are no longer remembered by relatives. The children were no longer heard from after their half-sister, Anna heard from them in 1885. The yellow fever episode, according to the story, occurred during the Civil War when Kirkpatrick was serving with the 17th Louisana Infantry.


During the Civil War, James served in Company D, 17th Louisiana Infantry, in a detached service aboard a Gun Boat in AR. When his ship was blown up, he disserted the Confederate Service in 1867. He married in Gullespie, TX to Jane Elizabeth Bradbury. All Jane's brothers were veterans of the TX War of Independence. They received Grants of land for their service to the Republic of Texas.
