      Info from Jim Norman:
      Frederick Lavarack, born 1883, unwitting married into the family of Capt
      John Kirkpatrick who fought the Brits in 1776, but by then all was forgiven.

      Actually, the Kirkpatrick side of my family were the Scotish, not the
      Irish, Kirkpatricks, and came from Watties Neach, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.

      From the book titled: Capt. John Kirkpatrick of New Jersey, 1739-1822

      Chapter II, Capt. John Kirkpatrick and his wife Lydia Lewis of Warren
      County, N.J.
      [Page 7]
      3. Capt John Kirkpatrick was born near Basking Ridge in Somerset County,
      N.J. about the year 1739, and died on his plantation near Ebenezer in
      Frelinghuysen Township, Warren County, N.J. on April 17, 1822, in his 84th
      year. Warren was formerly a part of Sussex county; Sussex was erected in
      1753; but Warren was not set off from Sussex until 1824; in fact the new
      county was not formed until two years after Capt. John's death. Capt. John
      Kirlpatrick was for many years a Ruling Elder in the Yellow Frame
      Presbyterian Church; he was one of its strongest supporters financially and
      spiritually. The Rev. Jehiel Talmadge, the eminent clergyman, preached his
      funeral sermon. John Kirkpatrick served in the Sussex militia during the
      Revolutionary War. He was lieutenant in Capt. Henry Johnson's Company,
      Second Regiment; afterward he was promoted and made Captain of the same. See
      Gen. Stryker's Official Register of Officers and Men of New Jersey in the
      Revolutionary War, page 398. Capt. John Kirkpatrick married in Somerset
      County, Lydia Lewis, a descendant of Samuel Lewis who came with four sons
      and settled near Basking Ridge about 1732. Lydia survived her husband; her
      will is recorded at Belvidere. Capt. John Kirkpatrick's will is dated April
      12, 1822, and was recorded at Newton on the first of May following. See
      Chapter VIII. He left his farm to his son William, who, having been in
      possession of it a short time, sold it to Andrew Rose. Capt. John's
      plantation contained 170 acres and was situated near where the Ebenezer
      public school and the Ebenezer M.E. Church now stand. It is on the north
      side of the road from Kerr's corner to Ebenezer, and is the first farm on
      the road from Ebenezer toward Paulina. The original log-house stood on the
      East side of the road last named and very close to it, and close to an
      excellent spring of water which flows westward through a meadow. Several
      deeds on record at Newton show that Capt. Kirkpatrick had also acquired
      during his long and active life considerable real estate in the vicinity of
      the Yellow Frame and Fredon.
