Samuel D. Kirkpatrick was born February 5, 1822, in Bond county, Illinois, the son of James Harrison Kirkpatrick and Nancy (Hufner) Kirkpatrick. In 1840, Samuel served as a chain carrier with a surveying group throughout Crawford and Richland counties, Wisconsin.

On September 4, 1851, in Madison county, Illinois, Samuel married Mary Jane Elsworthy. According to the History of Crawford and Richland counties, Wisconsin," Samuel was a blacksmith in Towerville, Crawford county, in 1856, and 1857.

By 1867, we find him in Litchfield, Illinois, where he helped to found a Masonic lodge. According to a history of Montgomery County, Illinois, he was a lumber merchant.

Researcher's Notes

S.D. Kirkpatrick authored a short family history titled "A Chronological Record of My Ancestry". There is no date on this piece. The account is vivid but much of it's content is in error. It must be used with care. The paper apparently descended through the family via S.D. Kirkpatrick's daughter Myrtle (Kirkpatrick) Hazard of Lake Charles, Louisiana. (Some copies of this paper bear comments by Day Jewell, another Kirkpatrick researcher, and some of his conclusions, unfortunately, are equally unsound.)
