Cradle to Grave (C2G) Profile for Catherine (KIMBERLIN) by Floyd Thomas Pratt F.H.C., M.A.G.I. 2009
In harmony with the first law of genealogy or family history research, i.e., documentation, I submit my famous Cradle to Grave (C2G) Profile on this subject including all known documentation presented for the serious researcher. This has been done to help the serious researcher continue in their thirst for family history knowledge without a duplication of effort. All I ask is that you acknowledge my contribution to your family history research. My gift to you…Floyd Thomas Pratt F.H.C., M.A.G.I.

1827 Family Move
From Botetourt, Virginia, United States to Meremec Twp, Washington, Missouri, United States.
"Forest Hills and Vicinity" by John Steele McCormick, © 1970, page 140
"Besides the Harrison's, Summers, Anthonys and various Harman families, the Kimberlin family has always been associated with this area. There were at least two and possibly three founding families of which the best known is the Rhinard and Frances Kimberlin family who came from Virginia in 1827 and settled in Washington County (according to Stevens history.) They settled at Anthonies Mill about 1845. They were parents of four sons and four daughters all of whom married into local families. Unfortunately, family data was not made available. They were: Joseph, Jacob, Michael, Henry, Mary, Nancy, Catherine, and Vermetta. Vermetta, in 1853 married Ruben Harman. Curiously, she used the name Henrietta, when she married Ruben. The marriage is recorded at Potosi and the dates correspond to Vermetta's. The family often spelled the name Kimberling. Ben Kimberling in 1825 in St. Louis, made the first entry for land in Township 40; Range 1 West of Washington County."

1839 Good Friends
by Floyd Thomas Pratt F.H.C., M.A.G.I. 2008
It should be noted here that Rinard Kimberlin was a good neighbor and a friend to the Henry Pratt family.
When the Pratts arrived in eastern Crawford County in March 1839, they moved into Richwoods Twp, Washington, Missouri after their ordeal on the "Trail of Tears". They settled near the Kimberlins and struck up a good friendship.
When James Pratt married Rinard's daughter, Catherine in 1847-1848, James probably told Rinard that he wanted a piece of property near Rinard or Catherine told James to buy some property near her parents either way, it was against the law for indians to own or buy land.
Rinard bought the land, the James Pratt family settled on from Firmin Desloge and 3 weeks later sold 24 acres of the 105 acres to his son-in-law, James Pratt.
Rinard did the same for his daughter, Mary after she married Alexander Pratt...James' brother.
After James became a property owner it was easier for James and Alexander to pass themself off as a white man even though they were ½ Cherokee. This led to Alexander's land purchase two years later in May 1856 from William & Martha Hughes which he later sold to the Ambrose Marion Pennock family from Ohio in 1859.

Research Note
I am not sure of the significance of Frances listing Catherine with her family on 29 October 1850 to the census taker and then Catherine is shown as married to James Pratt on 30 October 1850. Since little Jacob Henry was 1 year old then we can rule out the possibility they may have just married. Another possibility we would have to rule out, is if the census taker asked Frances to list her children, she listed all of her children even Catherine who was already married and moved out of her parent's home.
