I have not been able to find where my Moses came from. He has been traced to Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania about 1798. Prior to that, we just don't know for sure. Family history has him coming from "East" of the Allegheny Mountains". This usually meant Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Eastern Maryland, or Eastern Virginia. I have not been able to locate him anywhere in those places. There are more Moses Kirkpatrick's in those areas than I suspected, but all I have been able to find have been traced to other areas of the country. There are several Moses Kirkpatricks who married individuals with the name of Margaret also. I have been working on this now for almost 15 years with little success. All I know is he was born between 1756 and 1760. He married Margaret. He had children named Rebecca, Mary, Jane, William, Alexander, Nancy, Ruth, Polly, and Sarah. All the children were born close together except Rebecca. She married into the Henry Family. She was born in 1786. The next child was born in 1798, so there were either some children who died, or Moses was married before Margaret and his first spouse died. There is information that said that Moses came from Ireland with his family. Other information indicates that Moses came from Scotland. Again, I have not idea. Any help you could give would be helpful. I have no access to information in Ireland or Scotland, so any suggestions or resources you know of in those areas would be appreciated.
