Pvt Patrick Jack Kilgore
Birth: 1744
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 18, 1808
Sandy Lake
Mercer County
Pennsylvania, USA

Patrick Jack Kilgore married Jean (Jane) Morrough (Morrow) in 1780 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Jean was born in 1755 in French Creek, Mercer County, Pennsylvania. She died in 1811. Her burial site is unknown. They had nine children:

David Kilgore b. about 1782 m. Janette Cochran
Samuel Kilgore b. about 1783
Elizabeth Kilgore b. about 1784 m. George Henry
Jesse Kilgore b. December 28, 1787 m. Martha Hill
William Kilgore b. February 22, 1790 m. Sarah Jane
James Kilgore b. 1791 m. Elizabeth Stewart
Jean Kilgore b. 1795 m. Dickey
John Jack Kilgore, Sr. Born September 20, 1796 m. Tabitha
Dorcus McClellend
Eleanor (Elinor) Kilgore b. 1797

Patrick Jack Kilgore remained in Cumberland County throughout the Revolutionary War, on or near his mother's plantation. It has been said that he was a surgeon in the Revolution. That is not proven. When the war ended he took his wife and five children to Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. There he acquired land near his brother, David Kilgore. Later he moved on to the wilds of Mercer County, Pennsylvania, his final home.

Patrick Jack Kilgore's burial site is unknown. He died in Mercer County, Pennsylvania where he last lived with his family. It was earlier shown on Find a Grave that he was buried in Sandy Lake. That is now questioned. He is most likely buried on his property or some area near his home. He and his wife were members of Evergreen Presbyterian Church which was established about 1800. Since Patrick and his family were very devout Christians there is a possibility both could be buried near the church even though the cemetery was not established until a few years later.

IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN, I Patrick Kilgore of Mercer County and State of Pennsylvania being very weak in body but
of sound mind memory and understanding (bless be God for the same, but considering the uncertainty of this transitory life) do make
and publish this my last will and testament, in manner and form following, to wit, --
PRINCIPALLY, and first of all, I commend my immortal soul into the hands of God who gave it, and my body to the earth to

wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me in this life, I give and dispose of the same in the following manner to wit: I give and devise
the farm on which we now live (being the residue ofthat tract off which Samuel is to get two hundred acres, and the land we have
settled, joining it,) to my beloved sons, Jesse Kilgore and William Kilgore, to be divided equally the division line to run east and west,
and William to have the South end and as much improvement, to be made by them jointly upon the north end, as well be made upon
the south end after Jesse comes to the age of twenty one ... Provided that Jesse & William live together until Elinor be fifteen years of
age, and raise the family in the following manner, to wit, John and James are to be learned to read, write, and cypher the five common
rules of arithmetic, and at the age of fifteen or sixteen to be bound to some suitable person, each of them to learn a trade, Jean and
Elinor to be learned to read and write, and the family to be provided for in a reasoable way, under the direction of my widow, their
mother, but as man is mortal, provided anything should happen to call William off before he comes to the age of twenty-one, and Jesse
continues to support the family then Jesse shall have the south end of the place, and John Kilgore shall have the north end, -- and
provided also that if Jesse shall not remain with William Until the family is so raised, then and in that case I give and bequeath the
whole land to William, if the the family is so raised by him, and the overplus raised on the farm, after the family is supported, is to
belong to Jesse and William equally, if they remain together. I also give and devise my carpenter tools and cooper tools to Jesse, and
my turning tools and broad axe to William -- and after my just debts are paid I allow all my personal property to be and remain in the
hands of my dear wife, and wholly at her disposal while she remains my widow, but if she should intermarry again, I then give and
bequeath to my beloved wife the third part of all my personal property (giving her also full liberty to will the said one third part of the
personal property to whom she pleases, at her decease, provided she does not marry) and the remaining two thirds of the personal
property shall continue in the hands of the boys, for the purpose of raising the family - and also to my beloved children David Kilgore,
Samuel Kilgore, and Elizabeth Henry, I give and bequeath to each the sum of one dollar to be paid to them by Jesse and William in
one year after my decease-- and lastly I nominate, constitute, and appoint my dear wife and son William to be executors of this my
will, hereby revoking all other wills and legacies and bequests by me heretofore made and declaring this and no other, to be my last
