I would be very pleased to hear from anyone who is a descendant or has knowledge of the Kirkup or Marquis families. Robert Stephen Kirkup (England) married Eliza Amelia Kirkup (from Guernsey England) in New York in 1860 and moved to Lenawee and raised a family. One son Charles E. Kirkup had been a dry goods merchant for 44 years in Hudson when he died in 1941. Other sons and daughters were George, William, Robert, Frederick, Helena, Eva and Mary.
Please contact me if you can help in any way. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and I look forward to receiving replies.
