My father was John Ewing Kiker, Jr. He told me that he was disappointed that neither my sister nor I was interested in joining Daughters of the American Revolution. I don't remember ever talking with him about this, but apparently his branch of the Kikers did fight in the American Revolution.
He was born in Americus, Ga, in 1906. His grandfather was John Newton Kiker, and his father was John Ewing Kiker, Sr. I never met his father, because he died before I was born.
