Surnames: Neikirk
I am looking for information on Thomas J Neikirk/Nikirk born abt 1869 in Virginia to George W and Susan E Neikirk. He married Sarah E Barnett abt 1891 in Bell/Harlan, Kentucky. He is listed in the 1880 Rose Hill, Lee, Virginia Census and the 1910 and 1930 census in Claiborne, Tennessee. This is what I have for his children:

1. Robert Singleton Neikirk b 22 Jun 1891 in Virginia d 1 Mar 1970 in Bell, Kentucky. He married Nellie Denny in 1916 Claiborne, Tennessee. Had one daughter that I can find, Georgia L Neikirk b 26 Sep 1927 Bell, Kentucky.

2. Bessie (?) born 1894 Virginia married Orvil Asher in 1920 Claiborne, Tennessee. Her name in the 1910 Census looks like Bastine, however Claiborne Tennessee Marriage Index has Bessie. Bessie maybe a nickname.

3. Quillen (?) born 1899 in Tennessee married Rosa Arnold in 1919 Claiborne, Tennessee. Had one daughter that I have found so far, Mayme G. Neikirk b 6 May 1921 in Bell, Kentucky.

4. James V born abt 1901 in Tennessee married Rettie (?) Webb in 1924 Claiborne, Tennessee. Had Della G b abt 1927 in Tennessee.

Any information regarding these individuals would be greatly appreciated.

It has been some time since you posted your query about the Neikirk family but I believe we have a common interest. Thomas J., 23 May 1867 - 09 Oct 1948, and Sarah (Barnett), 30 May 1868 - 22 Jun 1938, are my 2nd great grandparents. Thomas and Sarah are buried in Scott Cemetery in Claiborne Co., TN. You can find a picture of their tombstone and a picture of Thomas at I also have a family photo of "Pappy Neikirk" if you would like it.

Their daughter Leova Vesteenia, 10 Jan 1894-24 Dec 1942, is my ggrandmother. She was married Hiram Robert Laws, 16 Sep 1883-17 Jan 1942 and had 4 children, Alley, Woodrow Robert, Charles Esco, and Roscoe. I have very little information about my Neikirk lineage. Any information that we can exchange would be appreciated. Cathy
