John W. was one of five children born to John and Mary Kirkpatrick. His father was born Jan.24, 1837 in Chester County, South Carolina to Stephen Kirkpatrick and Elizabeth Francis Carter. Her father married Mary, the mother of Joseph and Mattie McGee. John and Mary had five children before Mary died prior to 1880. Although John was born in Texas, his father moved his family to Louisiana before his younger brother, Walter Lee was born in 1878. The 1880 Bienville Parish census reveals John's mother has died. His half-sister, Mattie is still living with the family.

According to "The History of Bienville Parish Vol. I" by Billie Gene Poland, "In 1881, Green Berry Mayfield and his family came to Alabama Bend in Bienville Parish, Louisiana to visit Fannie Kirkpatrick (Mayfield)'s brother, **JOHN Kirkpatrick**. They were in route to Texas, but finding John terminally ill, they stayed in Bienville and took charge of his children after his death. His wife had died a short time earlier. A few years later, they settled near Rocky Mount Church and took an active part in the church and civil affairs of that area. Green Berry died 12 April 1925 and Fannie died 14 December 1934. They are buried in Rocky Mount Cemetery"
