Daniel Kirk Lived In:

Born in Shelby County, Daniel Kirk spent his entire life in the state of Indiana. After his mother died 4 July 1835, his father remarried, 17 February 1836, to Susan R Sloan. The family moved to Morgan County sometime between the remarriage and 1840. Most of Daniel’s life was spent in Jefferson Township, Morgan County. Before 1900, he’d removed to East Highland Street in Martinsville, Washington Twp., in Morgan. A widowered farmer, the 1900 census records he had zero days unemployed.

Other Information:

Daniel Kirk was a prosperous Jefferson Township farmer, working 220 acres that father-in-law Nathan Dow had originally acquired as a 240 acre parcel in two deeds dated 6 September 1836. The Kirks purchased the farm in 1855 and 1856 from Martha’s brother, David Dow, who had obtained it from his siblings following Nathan Dow’s death. The 1870 U.S. census lists Daniel’s real estate valued at $6000 and his personal property at $5000. The farm was honored as a Hoosier Homestead Farm in 1979 and still belongs to a descendant.

The Kirks were devout Christians, belonging to the Lamb’s Creek Christian Church, where Daniel was a leader. With the exception of Charles, who removed to California, all of the Kirk children lived their entire lives in Indiana.
