After receiving additional information from a second cousin, I decided that I had sufficient data. Therefore, I have created a biography for Raymond Presley Kirkpatrick. Much of the information was drawn from the "History Of Oakdale Township." I am hopeful that I will get additional input from a couple of family members. If so, I will reissue the biography.

Recently, a second cousin contacted me and shared some unique documentation. In response, I created a list of the resources that I have used in my research. Since I created the list, I decided to share it with everyone and link it to my website. It is at Genealogy Resources.

While chasing after the Thomas McClurken probate records, I ended up with some guardianship records for Harriet Louise McClurken (she was an heir of Thomas McClurken (1805 - 1867)). I decided that I shouldn't let them go to waste, so I created a biography for her. A little digging for US Census records and some help from the Gynzer's Gynealogy Database was all that I needed to supplement information that I already had. Harriet was my great granmother's first cousin, once removed. Her biography is now available at Harriet_McClurken. Included are the records for the last couple of years of her guardianship. I also linked her into the Outline Descendant Report of Thomas McClurken (1748 - 1845) and my Ancestor Tree.

The biography for this Thomas McClurken is now available. Thomas was married to Martha Kirkpatrick. He was the son of Thomas McClurken, the brother of James McClurken, and the uncle of Clara McClurken. Attached to this biography is a summary of the Probate Documents, as well as, copies of the actual documents.
