Narrative:

     Moses Clark Kirkpatrick was born on 8 Jan 1857 in Fredonia, Caldwell Co., Kentucky.6,7,8 His birth record shows his name was Frank Moses Clark Kirkpatrick but it appears that the "Frank" was soon dropped and he was known as Moses Clark Kirkpatrick.4,1,2,3
     He appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Fredonia, Caldwell Co., Kentucky, in the household of his parents, Dr. William Dodd Kirkpatrick and Aurelia Skinner Cobb.12,13 He appeared with his parents on the 1870 Federal Census of Fredonia, Caldwell Co., Kentucky, in the household of his grandfather, James Kirkpatrick.14 He appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Fredonia, Kentucky in the household of his parents.15
     Moses married Carrie Imogene Maxwell, daughter of James Harvey Maxwell and Mary M. Cole, on 2 Feb 1881 in C. P. Church, Caldwell Co., Kentucky, with Rev. L. O. Spencer officiating.9,10,11
     According to a newspaper account of Moses and Carrie's wedding, there was "an elegant supper afterwards at the home of the bride's parents, with a goodly number of invited guests." The gifts included:
- Bed room set of furniture, from the groom's parents

     Moses and Carrie and their family moved to Mills Co., Texas after 1880, apparently about the same time his parents did. Moses and Carrie appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Mills Co., Texas, enumerated 13 Jun 1900, reporting that they owned their farm, mortgage free. Their children Nellie, William, Maxwell, Ruth, Hugh and Carrie were listed as living with them. They were apparently living close to his parents as they are listed next.17
     He was working on a farm in Kentucky in 1800, but by 1900 was a merchant in Texas. In 1910 he reported his occupation as a farmer, working on his own farm. His death certificate showed his occupation as a bank cashier, but it is unclear at what point in time he had that occupation.18,19,20,21
     Moses and Carrie appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of Mills Co., Texas, enumerated 28 Apr 1910, reporting that they owned their farm, mortgage free. Their children Nellie, Marie, Ruth, Hugh and Carrie were listed as living with them.22
     Moses died on 16 Jul 1913 in Mullen, Mills Co., Texas, at age 56.1 He was buried on 17 Jul 1913 in Mullen Cemetery.1
