John Kirkpatrick was born in Ulster, Ireland in 1703. He immigrated to the American colony of Pennsylvania in 1720 at the age of 17 and before the greatest influx of immigrants from Ireland. He met and married Jane McFarland in 1726 with whom he had nine children. According to written reports John Kirkpatrick and one of his sons; several other men including John Cessna were killed by Indians attacking them in their fields about 7 miles from Shippensburg, PA. According to Parkinson's Memories of Carlisle's Old Graveyard John Kirkpatrick is buried in the second oldest grave located "between the south fence and the next oldest stone". The stone in graveyard is hard to read and the decipered inscription "John Kirkpatrick who departed this life the 27th day of April 1759". Might the difference in dates be due to difficulty reading the stone? Find A Grave does not have this grave recorded in the old Carlisle graveyard. 2
John married Jane McFarland. (Jane McFarland was born in 1707 in Lurgan, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, USA 3 and died in 1772 in Letterkenny, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, USA 3.)
