George is on the 1900 census Milam Co, TX as a widow, so his wife died too early to show up on the death index. TX didn't actually begin keeping vital records until 1903. Benjamin, George Jr. and Birdie are living with him, too.

By 1930 Birdie is on the Milam Co, TX census with husband George Bland and son James.

1860 census Polk Co, TX:

Kilpatrick, George, 38, b GA - no land/personal 800
" Viney, 35, b AL
" Josephine, 13, b AL
" Nancy B., 11, b LA
" Abby E., 9, b LA
" George W., 6, b TX ******
" Benj., 4, b TX
" William, 5/12, b TX

1870 Census Liberty Co, TX:

Kilpatrick, George, 45, b GA, land 250/personal 200
" Nancy, 18, b LA
" Abbie, 16, b LA
" Washington, 14, b TX *******
" Ben, 12, b TX
" James, 6, b TX

Looks like George and his brother Benjamin.

1880 census Prairie Plains, Grimes Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

John H. THOMAS Self M Male W 35 TEXAS Farmer ALA GA

**George W. KILLPATRICK Other S Male W 26 TEXAS Farm Laborer ALA ALA

Probably their father, remarried, and could be why they left home. Youngest brother James is still in the household.

George KILLPATRICK Self M Male W 55 GA Farmer SC SC
