Research Notes:

The records above occur in Bucks County, Monmouth County, and Burlington County. Did Samuel own land in all three counties, or were these records for more than one person?

An alternate, apparently incorrect, ancestry [67] reports Samuel's parents as Solomon Ivins and Mary Everingham.

Why was the estate of Joseph Kirkbride mentioned in tax records before 1805, and why did tax records show no land after 1805, and why were children removed in 1807?
