The Kirk / VanTassle Family of Rockford, Illinois

Updated July 31, 2003

To all whom these presents come... Welcome!

On these pages are the notes and files which I've collected whilst doing research into the lines of my family. I believe that if our ancestors cared enough to preserve the future for us, the very least that we can do if preserve their past.

I am currently focusing my research into the service men and women of my family lines. Below, you can find specific reports with information regarding the decendants of Revolutionary War Patriot Higgins Coppinger (Kristen's line), and Patriot Lyman Jackson (Geordon's Line). Also, you will find a report of descendant of Confederate Veteran Jeremiah "Jerry" Killian (Kristen's Line).

Other reports to be found below include the general ancestry of both myself and my husband Geordon.

Some information contained upon the pages herein has not been verified by obtaining primary documentation. In fact most of it hasn't. My sources are noted where applicable, use your own best judgement. If you find information that needs to be corrected, please feel free to email me with documented sources.

The primary purpose of these pages are the education of my immediate family. Therefore I have done my best to stay within the bounds of the "educational fair use" clause of copyright and give credit where credit is due. I however didn't start out compiling my database with that intent, and if you find a quoted passage that I've forgotten to source, please bring it to my attention.

Most of all ENJOY!
