Title
Thomas Kirker
Caption
Thomas Kirker (1760-1837) was acting governor of Ohio from March to December 1807. As president of the Ohio Senate he assumed the office when Edward Tiffin left to take a seat in the United States Senate. A popular election was held in 1807. However, the winner, Return J. Meigs, Jr., was declared ineligible to serve as governor and Kirker continued as acting governor through 1808. As governor, Kirker dealt with Ohio citizens' concerns about Native American threats in western Ohio (AL03989).
