I am searching for the parents of Elizabeth Jane McClanahan Kirk of Corydon, Wayne Co.,
Iowa. The information I have on Elizabeth is as follows:
dob Nov. 16, 1857 in Adams Co., Ohio
mar. Dec 4, 1889 to William Kirk of Corydon Iowa
dod Oct, 1949 in Seymore, Wayne Co.., at the home of her daughter Mrs. Arthur J.
In 1872 at the age of 15, Elizabeth, along with her parents and 6 brothers and sisters
moved to Iowa. The mother died shortly after the move. In 1875 at the age of 18, the
family moved back to Ohio settling in Hillsboro, Highland Co., Ohio.
I do know Elizabeth had a brother named James Turner McClanahan, born in 1870. This was
my husbands grand-father. Also names connected to Elizabeth McClanah Kirk is a
grand-daughter Mrs. G. R. Caldwell, possibly Des Moine Iowa, and a grand-son Huber
Ellingsworth, possibly Pullman Washington.
Any information I could get on Elizabeth Kirk's parents would be greatly appreciated.
