  • Notes 
    • At Basswood.
      Rev. George Kite lived to be past 60 years of age. He died in October, 1882. His wife Sarah, was born in 1829 and died at the age of 83 years and 11 months. Andrew M. Kite and John Kite, sons of George and Sarah are here. Andrew was born in 1853 and died in 1900; John, born in 1856, died in 1876.
      On the monument for Rev. Kite is this:
      "A loving man, a friend most dear,
      A faithful partner lieth here.
      Weep not for me nor sorrow take
      But love my children for my sake.
      His work is completed and finished below,
      His last tear is fallen I trust,
      He has preached his last sermon
      And met his last foe,
      Has conquered and now is at rest."

      George was living in Boone County, Indiana when he maried Sarah Ann Myers. They were married by the Rev. Amos Hanway.

      George was ordained to the United Brethern church when he was only twenty years of age.

      George enlisted in the army during the Civil War at Brookfield, Wisconsin on February 25 1864 and was mustered out as a Corporal on July 12 1865. He served with the 36th Regiment Infantry.

      In Sarah's family bible, she spelled her last name as Myres.

      I have written that there were actually nine childern but only eight have been recorded.
