      Isabelle "Belle" KIRKENDALL is also found with the surname KIRTENDAL. She appears with her husband in the 1880 Census, Jefferson Co., Oskaloosa Twp., KS. Calculated from that entry, I estimate her birth year to be 1844. She was the daughter of Andrew KIRTENDAL and Nancy MCCREERY. She md. William KLINGENSMITH, b. about 1838, the son of Adam KLINGENSMITH and Anna Mary KIRKLAND. In the 1880 census, an Abraham KLINGENSMITH, b. PA., age 24, relationship s.e. is living with this family. William KLINGENSMITH is noted in Beers, "Armstrong County, Her People Past and Present", 1914, pg. 790. I believe that history is available on the Armstrong Co., PA page. I show 4 children of William K. and Isabelle: Nancy E., b. abt. 1865 in KS; Andrew, b. abt 1866 in KS; Alvara, b. abt. 1870 in KS; and Wilbert, b. abt. 1879 in KS. Because of a citation on page 279 of "History of Kuykendall Family", believe Nancy b. abt. 1865 may have md. ? WILSON, and lived at 325 Klein St., Topeka, KS in 1913.

      (3) Kuykendall, George Benson, History of the Kuykendall Family, Portland, OR: Kilham Stationery & Printing Co., 1919, p. 279:

      There follows a letter from Mrs. Belle Klingensmith, of Oskaloosa, Kan.

      "I am the youngest living daughter of Andrew Kirkendall. My father's father was Jeremiah Kirkendall. He married twice. I do not know the maiden name of his first wife, but [grand]mother's maiden name was Catherine Everly. My father had twelve half brothers and sisters and two full brothers. I do not know the names of all of them, but there was Christopher, Samuel, and Jeremiah, and then father's two full brothers' names were Joseph and Leonard. My father was born in Allegheny county, Pa., and moved to Washington county, and there married my mother, Nancy McCreery. To them were born seven children, three boys and four girls. All have passed to the better world but three, myself, Mrs. Inry and Thomas Kirkendall, of Saltsburg, Pa.

      My father moved from Washington county, Pa., to Armstrong county, and there we were all born and raised."

      It seems to be almost absolutely certain that this Andrew Kirkendall, father of Mrs. Belle Klingensmith, was the cousin of Mrs. Margaret Klingensmith, of Lovilia, Iowa, daughter of Matthew Kirkendall, of the same place, who was brother of Elijah R. Kirkendall, of Douds, Iowa.

      If this be so, would establish a relationship between the families and descendants of T. R. Kirkendall, of Saltsburg, Pa., and the families and descendants of Matthew Kirkendall, of Lovilia, Iowa, and Elijah R. Kirkendall, of Douds, Iowa. Elijah R. has, or had a brother, Matthew Kirkendall, who lived for many years at Emporia, Kan. He has many descendants still living in that country and elsewhere in the west.

      There is a daughter of Mrs. Belle Klingensmith living at 325 Klein Street, Topeka, Kan., Mrs. Nannie Wilson.
