Subject: Kimball Family
just found your web page on the Kimballs the other day when I was trying to tie
together some loose ends in my Family Tree Maker program. It's
wonderful!! The other resource I have used quite extensively is the Kimball Genealogy page at www.kimbell.org. A lot of the
information I have is from James Melvin Kimball, which I
got from my Aunt Helena Kimball. I guess she kept records
on the family for quite some time and shared them with my younger sister.
will give you where I fit in. I am the son of James Avery Kimball
and Elsie Mae Kimball. James A. was the only son of James
Howland Kimball and Beatrice Oliver Avery. I am one of 4
children from that marriage. James A was also married to an Edwina for a short
time- they were divorced on
one thing that I noticed on the web site was a reference to another wife of
James Howland Kimball between Beatrice and Florence
Titcomb. I don't believe this is true. I just spoke with my younger
sister and she didn't believe it was true. (I had sent her your web site--she
thought it was wonderful, too). The interesting story regarding Beatrice and
James H. is that after she and James divorced, she moved out to California (San
Francisco) and went through 3 or 4 or 5 husbands (who went through her $'s in
good fashion). The only one I can recall was a Ben Culler, but she had some
silverware with some other initials on it, so I know there were more. Then,
when Flossie (
have pictures of myself, My dad ,and My grandfather together when he came out
to visit the family in
The only holes I have left in my planned tree is a couple of the children of the siblings of my grandfather James H. Kimball. I had some lists of the great, and great, great, grandchildren of George E. Kimball that I believe came from Aunt Helena, and until I found your web site, didn't know who to attach them to. The three families that have me stumped now are the Millers, the Rogers, the Bernans, and the Dashas. I believe the Dashas have some ties to the Stoddards, but I'm not sure how. The others have got to be out of marriages between my grandfather's sisters and someone with one of those names. If you could help, I'd sure be receptive. I had another contact that I was working with, cousin Dianne Stoddard (daughter of George Kimball Stoddard-- was also known as "Kimmie") who lives in Hingham, but after numerous e-mails back and forth, all I was getting was lots of forwarded aol jokes, so I kind of gave up. She had promised to send me some info early on, but so far, nothing.
If there's anything I can provide towards your great Kimball family history, let me know. I can fill in from my siblings outwards, along with those I have on the great and great, great lists.
Keep up the good work!

I thought I would send you some fill-in information for your Kimball family

I know it's been a while since you wrote this, but I'm still getting around to
digging out some of my e-mail since we did our 2 month trip back to
Yes, I do have some pictures that the wife of one of my 2nd Cousins provided (one's I had never seen). This was Eliana Marcia Villela Gomes Kimball, wife of Albert Wishart Kimball, Jr. I'll send them in separate e-mails so the download time doesn't get too great. They have identifying names around the borders of them, but I will further label them for clarification.
