    Many sources give Holland as the birthplace of John Pirkle, but he was probably not born there. More likely he departed by ship from Holland.

    I am noting here that in the history of the Pirtle's of Hardeman County, Tenn.
    There is mention of a John Jacob Pirkle who passed away leaving his property to be divided among eight sons.

      George (whose name became Pirtle)

      John Pirkle

      Nathaniel Pirkle

      Jacob Pirkle

      Jesse Pirkle

      Samuel Pirkle

      William Pirkle

       As the date of death is 1808-1811 and all the eight sons names match that of John Jacob Pirkle who was listed as born in Holland in the year 1725 and died in 1810, and whose wifes name is Charity Dibbs matching that of our John Jacob Pirkle First born in America in Pennsylvania of Parents Jacob Birkle and wife Dorothea .

    Then it is plain that this man was not born in Holland, but was born in the year 1834 in Penn. Therefore is a descendant of the Birckles of Baden, from Germany.

    I thank you for giving me this opportunity to make this correction. Barbara Pirtle Gridley
