    Death date and burial location from Neal Kirkland E-mail 13 March 2002. Says he was in 1900 census of White County Arkansas, Cleveland Township, with birth date of January 1844.

    Kirkland, Neal, E-mail 08 January 2006 from Neal Kirkland, Thomas B. Kirkland..Death Certificate has him as 75 years, 5 or 6 months and 13 days... Thomas B. Kirkland died 06 July, 1921... Cause
    of death for Thomas B. Kirkland is unknown ....Death Certificate has "Thomas Benton Kirkland". The "B" was a mystery!

    The 1880 census, Royal Twp, White County AR gives the names as Thomas B. Kirtland, with a son John born in March of the census year. Apparently "John" was yet a third name for Walter Fred Kirkland not used subsequently, and presumably not a twin since only one 3-month-old son is listed. The other children agree with other records for Thomas B. Kirkland's children.
