James S. Kirk, founder of Kirk’s Original Coco Castile Soap, was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1818. Kirk was the son of a prominent shipbuilder and civil engineer. His family migrated to the Montreal, Canada when he was only six months old. In his teens, Kirk was introduced to soap and candle manufacturing. At the age of twenty-one, he married his true love and was inspired to create the James S. Kirk & Company in Utica, New York. He produced a brood of seven sons, many of whom were later involved in the family business. The Kirk family lived and worked in South Evanston, Illinois until his death in 1886. It was said that “there never was a resident of Chicago who was more highly respected and esteemed.”
