Generation No. 1
1. WILLIAM REED KILPATRICK was born August 12, 1844 in Elora,Lincoln County,Tennessee, and died January 25, 1923 in Belleview Florida. He married MARY CALDONIA GRAHAM.

Notes for WILLIAM REED KILPATRICK: William's father, James H. Kilpatrick was born in North Carolina in 1807. His mother, Matilda, who was born in Tennessee about 1810, was living with him and Mary at the time of the 1880 census.

At the time of the 1880 census, William Reed Kilpatrick had two boys living with him, Mary, and Matilda. One was James Clark (age 12) listed as "bound", born in AL as well as both parents. The second was William Cryar (age 15) listed as "Hh", born in AL as well as both parents.

Following are some excerpts from the Flintville Observer:

April 17, 1884 Flintville ed. observer The distillery, run by Kilpatric & Mims will soon cease to manufacture "bug juice."

June 2, 1887 Flintville ed. observer Our new merchant, Mr. W. R. Kilpatric, has moved his stock of goods to his own house, which he has had repaired and improved.

May 14, 1891 Flintville ed. observer The last legislature incorporated the town of Flintville, and last Saturday we elected W. R. Kilpatric mayor, A. J. Summers recorder and H. C. Counts town constable, and there will be a saloon opened at once. Our good water and bad whiskey makes a very good drink, and bad water and good whiskey makes a very good drink, so you see we will have a very good drink all the time. Come up, Mr. Editor, and we'll set 'em up.

May 21, 1891 Flintville ed. observer Mr. A. G. Yost has been elected mayor of our town and Mr. A. J. Summers recorder, while J. W. Cunningham, J. M. Franklin, W. R. Kilpatric and F. G. Hester compose the board of alderman.

July 2, 1896 Flintville ed. observer Mr. W. R. Kilpatric had the misfortune to have a fine mule shot last week by some evil person who will have all the fun to himself. The mule will not be fit for service again his season if ever again.

May 6, 1897 Flintville ed. observer W. R. Kilpatric lost a good many rails that caught fire in the woods from the burning houses.

I am fairly confident that this is William Reed Kilpatrick. If so, he was still living in Flintville up until 1897. In the 1900 census, Mary is listed as the head-of-household with Willie Bell still living with her. I assume the rest of the family was down in Belleview, Florida, but why didn't Mary and Willie go with them?

Notes for MARY CALDONIA GRAHAM: Mary's father was born in AL. and her mother was born in TN. She was listed as head of household in Lincoln Co., District 3, Census of 1880. Willie Belle was the only child listed living with her and she is listed as a stepdaughter.

Notes for ROBERT FLOYD KILPATRICK: Granddad moved his family back from Florida up to Madison County, Alabama, and lived out his life in this area. Granddad was a farmer, but foremost Grandad was a gospel preacher and preached all over the Tennessee Valley including having a radio program in Huntsville, and preached in Eastern Kentucky (met people in Corbin that remembered him) and in Mississippi. He preached on court house steps, over a loud speaker mounted on top of his car, and in tent or brush arbor meetings. Many people I've met ask me if I was kin to R.F. Kilpatrick, and tell me they remembered him preaching on the radio, or that he baptized them, or that he stayed at their house when he was preaching in their community. G-Grandmother and G-Granddad lived out their last years in Maysville. They lived in a big house across from the gin. I used to go with my dad to visit them there. That was a long time ago and about all I can remember about it was that I wasn't allowed to go upstairs because the back stairs were very steep, and they had a cuckoo clock in their living room.

i. JAMES CARL KILPATRICK, b. March 27, 1909, Deposit, Madison County, Alabama; d. August 1986, Maysville,Madison County,Alabama; m. EATHEAL AMANDA TONEY, April 20, 1928, Huntsville, Madison County, Alabama.

Notes for JAMES CARL KILPATRICK: Carl Kilpatrick was born March 27, 1909 in Deposit, Madison Co., Alabama. His mother and dad moved to Florida some time after that to be with Granddad Billy, but then moved back to Madison Co., Alabama. Granddaddy told me how they moved back to Alabama in a wagon, and that they went through Atlanta on the way back. He said that it took them all day just to get across Atlanta. Granddaddy married my grandmother, Eatheal Amanda Toney, 4/20/1928. Granddaddy was a farmer, and, at least all the years I knew him, a carpenter. Granddaddy was a tenant farmer/sharecropper for a lot of his farming career, and he and Grandmother had to work hard just to eke out a living. They moved around a lot in Madison County, living in Hurricane Valley, the Antioch Community, Beaver Dam Community, and finally Maysville (y'all know where all those places are don't you?). Every time I hear Johnny Cash's song "Picking Time", I think of them. Granddaddy built many houses around Maysville, Brownsboro, Moon Town, Ryland, and Salty Bottom (y'all know where those places are too, I'm sure).

Notes for EATHEAL AMANDA TONEY: Grandmother loved flowers and tatted. Tatting is lace made by tying knots. Her favorite hymn was Paradise Valley.

Marriage Notes for JAMES KILPATRICK and EATHEAL TONEY: Marriage took place in the home of Brother J.A. Jenkins in the presences of his wife, his son Flavil Jenkins, Flavil's wife Lela and their daughter Regina. Also present were Lorena Burke, Wiley Usery, and Mary Jane Toney.
