Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 260, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana
"ISAAC R. ALKIRE was born in Ohio, May 2, 1839, and is the eldest of the five children born to FERGUS and RACHEL (HAYES) ALKIRE. His boyhood was passed chiefly in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, and after 1852 in this county, and he was reared a farmer. In 186?, in Tippecanoe County, he married MISS ELLEN CHILTON, a native of Kentucky. Her parents, JAMES and MARY CHILTON, were natives of Virginia, and her father, who was a farmer, died in Tippecanoe County, this State. The first land owned by MR. ALKIRE was an improved farm of 160 acres in this township, which he sold, and then bought a similar place near his present residence; this, in turn, he disposed of, and purchased his present farm of 600 acres, of which 450 are under cultivation. He has a fine frame dwelling and commodious outbuildings; he deals considerably in stock - mostly cattle and horses - and keeps ten or twelve horses for farm use. He is a member of the I. O. O. F., and is the father of one child - OLLA M."
