Researching for the parentage of Hawkins Kirby b. c.
1780/85 and Elizabeth Gosset b. c. 1785/90 married
about 1815 and both are from Spartanburg Co., SC.
A son, Middleton R. Kirby b. 1816, migrated to the
Lawrence/Morgan Co. area of Alabama (around Danville
and Decatur). Middleton married a Malinda J._______
(also listed as a Malinoa which may be Native
American) about 1840.
My line is:
Middleton R. Kirby
+Malinda J. _________.
William A. L. Kirby, Sr.
+Rachel Francis Harvell
William A. L. Kirby, Jr.
+(1)Elmira Jane Lake
Minor Lyle Kirby
+Bettie Lee Smoot
Clifton Lyle Kirby
+Mary Margaret Crooker
Margie Ann Kirby
+Curtis Eugene Ezell
Some have mentioned that Hawkins may have been the
son of Richard Kirby/Levicey Tolleson; another
listed a Francis Kirby/Kerby. Elizabeth's father
was mentioned as a John Gossett, Sr.
Any help will be sincerely appreciated.
