I would like to know where the Kirkhart surname comes from... I believe Germany.
My KIRKHARTis Jacob Kirkhart b abt 1772 in Virginia and marr 28 Jun 1799 to Elizabeth Batt-Bott, he died in Highland Co., Ohio. She was born 17 Oct 1772 in Virginia and died 24 May 1849 in Ohio. I believe the next generation back to be Anthony/Anton Kirkhart and Veronica Albrecht. Is there anyone out there working on Kirkhart,Kephart,Kirkard-variations? Thanks to all.

My mother's maiden name was Kirkhart. I do believe
it is of German origin. Unfortunately, my father
gave all his genealogical material to a cousin
upon mother's death. What I have indicates
Jacob is an ancestor.

the german spelling is Kirkhardt.
If you are interested, I have my family's geneology for several generations, including the names of the 2 brothers that came off "the boat"
My family's branch is settled primarily in the south- Missouri and Georgia. Unfortunately, I do not have the records handy at the moment( i was just net-surfing), but if you are interested, I would be happy to pull the file out of the drawer and send?e-mail anything that I may have that would be of use.

I am a descendant of Jacob Kirkhart (Virginia)
John Washington Kirkhart (Ohio) Jacob Kirkhart
(Ohio, then Iowa Oklahoma) who was the father
of my grandfather Jacob Kirkhart (Iowa, then
Oklahoma). My father was Robert S. Kirkhart.
I have quite a bit of Kirkhart research that
I'd be glad to share with other Kirkhart family
members. Though it does appear that our Kirkharts
came to the US from Germany, we were always
told we were Irish. Our grandfather sang and
danced Irish music. In 1634, there is a
Robert Kirkhart in the records in Scotland.
If anyone knows anything that would clarify this
Scot Kirkhart along with the German Kirkharts,
we'd enjoy hearing it. Thanks.

I don't dispute the German spelling which you show. I believe, however, that there is a different German spelling. I have found it to be KIRCHHARDT. Pennsylvania records show Antonius Kirchhardt who I believe is the father of Jacob Kirkhart. Moreover, there is a village named Kirchhardt in Germany near Heilbronn. I have tried to link that village with our family without success.
