You have accessed the Kirkley-Family web site developed by Ralph and Mary Lee Kirkley with the able assistance of their son Kent Kirkley and several other descendants of Robert Kirkley. The information presented here represents several years of research, including travel to South Carolina, Civil War battlefields, and East Texas.

We are in need of pictures of the various generations and in particular Robert Kirkley’s second wife, Olevia Durrett who was my grandmother. It is anticipated that by making this site initially available to Robert Kirkley’s descendants and the descendants of Olevia Durrett additional information will become available.
