I have a James Kirby born Mar 16, 1781, dont know where. Married a woman by the name of Francis, who was born 1786.
They had ten children:
1.Eliza Kirby born Oct 18, 1808
2.Sarah B. Kirby born May 17, 1811
3.John Kirby born Feb 5, 1813
4. Rebecca Kirby, born Feb 6, 1815 Virginia?married Samuel K. Steele in 1837in Harrison Co., Ohio. Rebecca and Samuel and their children moved to Iowa around 1850-1852. These are my ggggreat grandparents.
5.MaryAnn Kirby born Sept 9, 1817, married Jacob Steele, whom I believe may be a brother to Samuel.
6.Winifred Kirby born Oct 29, 1818
7. Frances Kirby born Nov 20, 1822
8. Thomas Kirby born Aug 21, 1825
9. Campbell Kirby born Aug 1, 1827
10. David Kirby born May 19, 1930
Looking for any information on where James and his children were born and any other information. Would like to find out for sure if Jacob Steele is Samuel's brother. Any help appreciated.

Tracy, I have Kirbys too, from Harrison and Carroll counties in Ohio. Maybe we have a match.

The only information I have on Thomas Kirby is that he was born Aug 2, 1825, and he died Jan 15, 1903 at the age of 77.
Parents were James and Francis Kirby.

I don't think he is the Thomas Kirby I am looking for. The one I am looking for died May 27, 1902 according to the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions.

The date I have was sent to me by another researcher, and it has not been confirmed. Where did your Thomas live when he died? Or do you know where he lived when he was young?

That would make your Thomas born in 1844. Mine was born in 1825, so they are not the same, although my Kirbys were born in Virginia. The earliest I have dated back to Virginia is James Kirby born in 1781 in Maryland, but moved to Virginia before 1815, so maybe they are still connected in some way.
Will keep in touch if I come across something.
