Since that time he had been an insurance agent for the Medbury-Wilson Co. and in spite of his years continued active till last summer. He was married on May 16, 1872, to Adelaide Kyle, who died Aug. 30, 1930. A daughter Mary is also deceased. He is survived by one son, Fred W. Kirk, who with his wife came from Chicago last August to be with Mr. Kirk. A sister, Mrs. Thalia S. Johnston, of Ravenna, also survives. Mr. Kirk joined Argus Lodge, F&AM in 1888 and served as its Worshipful Master in 1894, being senior Past Master.
