On the June 1860 Polk County AR census my g.g.Uncle John was listed as Kuykendall. with his family and baby Jordan, is 9 months old. On the July 1860 Crawford County census, his name is Kirkendall and baby Jordan is 10 months old??? I see that when Cornelius was married to a Ferriby Casteel, his name is spelled Kuykendall, but his son, James Harve, spell the name Kirkendall and the male sons, ABSOLOM CORNELIUS, FRED EDWARD, HENRY HERSHEL, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, HAROLD MASON "HAL", DID THEY GIVE THIS SPELLING TO THEIR DECENDENTS? AND I WONDER HOW MANY ARE LOOKING TODAY FOR THERE KIRKENDALL ANCESTORIES? I KNOW OF ONE AND HE REFUSES TO BELIEVE THAT A SPELLING MISTAKE WAS MADE AND REFUSES TO BELIEVE 3 OF HIS FIRST COUSINS. TODAY I SPOKE WITH A MYRTLE COVINGTON (91) SO REMEMBERS CORNELIUS AS A VERY, VERY OLD MAN WHEN SHE WAS TEEN-AGER GROWING UP IN SALLISAW, OK.
