Birth: unknown
Death: Jun. 18, 1811

1746, George Kill Patrick to work on road from N Mountain to Wm King (Lyman Chalkley's Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in VA, Vol. 1, page 20).

Greenbrier County, VA (now WV) Wills 1780-1865 "Will of George Kirkpatrick, Augusta Co. to Thomas Kirkpatrick, brother. Bequeathed to brother Thomas, part of his land in Greenbrier County, on Anthony's Creek. Executors to sell 100 "Cowpasture" acres in Rockbridge County, Will dated 20 Apr 1811, and probated 27 Aug 1811.

Any connection to the Kirks who seem to share the same names?

Suspect George's sister in: Anny Kirkpatrick's 1816 will, her mother Martha Kirkpatrick; siblings Thomas, James, George, "living sisters," Jane Mickamy and her oldest son; Peggy Armstrong.

May be family connected with the 6 Oct 1823 will filed for Martha Kirkpatrick of Rockbridge Co., VA.

1) 1902: Lyman Chalkley's Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in VA, Vol. II, page 334, lists the Inscriptions on Tombstones at the Glebe Graveyard on the Farm of Thomas Thompson in Augusta County, VA. in 1902. It includes: "George Kirkpatrick, died June 18th, 1811."

2)1934, Per the VA. D.A.R., Col. Thomas Hughart Chapter (Staunton), stones copied by Major W.A. Murphy & compiled by Mrs. W.W. King's Glebe Burying Ground, 1749, Augusta Co., VA, published in 1934, 12 pages. His gravestone read:
GEO KIRK
PATRICK
Dy
June 18, 1811
(Note: I've seen other old markers with surnames spread on two lines like Kirkpatrick.)

3)1938, James W. McClung's 5 Mar 1938 Works Progress Administration of VA Historical Inventory #352, for Glebe Burying Ground. It says there are about 50 here but only 12 could be deciphered. He is not listed.

There are two small markers on either side of his. At present they are set off from other markers.
