Doctor Ralph Kilpatrick was born in Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana, December 21, 1861, and is a son of Andrew Milton and Marjorie Eliza (Cushman) Kilpatrick. His grandfather was Andrew Conger Kilpatrick, a native of South Carolina, who came to Rapides Parish in 1816, as one of the earliest settlers of this part of the state. He married a Miss Tanner, daughter of Robert Tanner, also a native of South Carolina and a pioneer of Rapides Parish, who was one of those who assisted in the arrest of Aaron Burr.
Andrew Milton Kirkpatrick was born near Cheneyville, Louisiana, July 16, 1829, and served in the army of the Confederacy during the war between the states, principally as a courier. At the close of that struggle he returned to his home place and engaged in extensive operations as a planter and merchant, in which he was very successful. He was one of the prominent men in his community in public affairs, and for a number of years served, capably, as mayor and justice of the peace at Evergreen. Neither he nor Mrs. Kilpatrick were professed church members, but he leaned toward the Baptist faith and she toward the Episcopal, Mr. Kilpatrick died in 1897, while Mrs. Kilpatrick, who was born at Marksville, Louisiana, in 1837, passed away in 1867. They were the parents of four children: C. M., who was clerk of the court and sheriff of Rapides Parish for over twenty years, and died in 1921; Dr. Ralph, of this review; Herbert, of Washington, Louisiana; and a daughter who died in infancy.
On October 15, 1891, Doctor Kilpatrick was united in marriage with Miss Alice Pierson, a daughter of Judge David Pierson and a sister of Dr. Clarence Pierson, a sketch of whose career appears elsewhere in this work. To this union there have been born three children: Sydney Marjorie, who attended the Sophia Wright School at New Orleans, graduated from the Louisiana State University and did postgraduate work at Chicago, New York and Boulder, Colorado, and is now a teacher of mathematics and physics in the Bolton High School, Alexandria; David Pierson, who held a second lieutenant's commission during the World war and was stationed at Camp Jackson and Fort Sill, and is now located at Alexandria with the Alexander, Bolton & Lewis Insurance Company, and Nainette Cushman, who is attending the Louisiana State University. She is the wife of John Worthie Cox, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
