This article appeared in the 7-23-10 issue of the Island Packet newspaper. (rest of article shown in next photo). It discusses the "homecoming" visit of Kathryn Kirk and her two friends, Dee Smith & Marie Madinger - all from Missouri. Kathryn ( who has previously donated many Kirk family heirlooms ) formally presented the Whites with the original Dr. John Kirk dining room table/chairs and original portraits of Dr. & Mrs. Conner (parents of Dr. John Kirk's son, Willy Kirk). The Kirks were eating at this table when the Yankee troops were seen in Bluffton during the Civil War; they immediately left the home and went to nearby Grahamville, SC.
