Biography of Hugh A. Kirk

Hugh A. Kirk. While it cannot be claimed for all Champaign County farmers that they live up to the opportunities afforded them, there are some of them whose progress and prosperity are well worth noting and whose modern methods have in the last few years almost revolutionized the industry. One of these wide-awake and progressive agriculturists is Hugh A. Kirk, whose finely cultivated fields are a credit to Harwood Township and whose thoroughbred stock have made his name known all over the county. Hugh A. Kirk was born in Champaign County, Illinois, and belongs to an old pioneer family of this section. His parents, James and Alice Kirk, were born in Ireland. The mother passed away some years ago, but the father survives, although the weight of years is heavy upon him. He is surrounded by loving descendants who tenderly minister to his wants. He was one of the early members of the Catholic Church at Ludlow, reared his children in that faith and they have always followed its teachings. Hugh A. Kirk attended the parochial schools at Philo and St. Joseph, and the Paxton High School, and still later took a course in Brown’s Business College. He has made a special study of scientific agriculture and has proved the value of such a course on his farm of 240 acres. His land has been made to produce abundantly...

Biography of Mrs. Suzan Kirk

Mrs. Suzan Kirk, widow of the late Bernard Kirk, is a Champaign County woman around whom center many associations and interests that betoken the spirit and achievements for which American life is most note-worthy. Mrs. Kirk was born in County Louth, Ireland, a daughter of Patrick and Ann (Casey) McGinnis. She was about fifteen years of age when her father died. While she was a girl in Ireland her cousin Mary Curley returned on a visit to the old country, and had much to say about the wonderful opportunities of the New World. It was these stories which largely decided Suzan to cast in her lot with the country across the water, and at the age of nineteen she set out and came alone across the ocean, landing at New York and going on to Chicago. She spent some time near Chicago, and while there met Bernard Kirk, also a native of the Emerald Isle and a son of Henry and Bridget Kirk. Bernard Kirk in the meantime had established himself in Champaign County and was in Chicago on business when he met Miss McGinnis. The acquaintance thus began continued with ripening affection until wedding bells sounded. The young couple possessed many of the virtues for which the land of Shamrock is noted, and began with vigor and enterprise the task of developing a 160-acre tract of land which...

Biographical Sketch of T. J. Kirk

T.J. KIRK. – It is pleasant to see that the oldest pioneers, who bore the brunt of the settlement of the country, are now the most prosperous. Mr. Kirk came to Oregon in 1846, being at that time but a boy of seven. He lived with his father in Linn county until 1871, when he made his home in Umatilla county near the pleasant city of Centerville. Here he has been in the horse and cattle business and a pioneer in raising wheat on the uplands. He now owns a farm of fourteen hundred acres consisting of the best land in the region, from which he harvests thirty bushels of wheat per acre. He also owns a considerable share of town property. In the political arena of the county, he has taken quite an important position, having been elected as representative to the state legislature in 1888. He met with this success on a Republican ticket. This indicates his popularity; and the secret of this is his deep and intelligent interest in all matters pertaining to the prosperity of his county. Mr. Kirk was married to Miss Ann Coyle in October, 1860. Mrs. Kirk is a native of the state of Illinois, and emigrated with her parents to Oregon in...
