Noah and Nicey (Whitaker) Kirkman from Surry County, NC, were in Missouri by 1854 and appear in the 1860 MO census in Kingsville, Johnson County, a small town near present day Warrensburg. Their children were George, William, Martha, Charles and Louis. By the 1870 census, Nicey was head of the household. It's very possible that Noah was killed during the Civil War as there was a great deal of fighting along the Missouri/Kansas border. However we've found no record of his death or military service.

Some of the Kirkmans moved to Kansas, settling near Lawrence and later, El Dorado. We've researched the family for several years but have yet to positively identify Noah's parents although we believe they were William and Edy (Frey) Kirkman from Guilford County, NC.

There are very few Kirkmans and we're always glad to hear from them. Let us know if you drop by this site!
