Memorial Card for Daniel Kirby, Who Died January 5, 1901; Presumably Daniel Rogers Kirby of Bellmont, New York

Memorial card of Daniel Kirby, who died on January 5, 1901 at the age of 68.  Nothing on reverse.

Daniel was presumably the Bellmont, New York resident Daniel Rogers Kirby, who died on that date.  He was born about 1832, perhaps July 8, 1832 at Beekmantown, New York, the son of Charles Kirby and Philena (Wilbur) Kirby.  On December 10, 1857,  Mary Turner Racey, or Bracy.

The information above comes from an online source referencing a Family Bible owned by Charles Kirby and then in the possession of relative John Dodge Miles.

I'm not sure if Daniel and Mary had any children of their own, but they had an adopted son John Burton Kirby, who was born about 1860.  Mary died in 1905.  They're buried in the Brainardsville Cemetery at Brainardsville, New York, along with a Burton Kirby, who may have been John Burton Kirby.

If you have information to add on Daniel Rogers Kirby or his wife Mary or John Burton Kirby, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
