This information has been graciously provided by Mr. Kimball's great-great-great-granddaughter, Miriam Robbins Midkiff.

Benjamin Henry Kimball was born in March, 1845, probably in Pavillion Township, Kalamazoo County, Michigan. An obituary lists his date of death, probably in Newaygo County, Michigan (although not listed in county records) as 01-28-1924, which differs from the official cemetery record. He often went by his middle name, Henry.

Mr. Kimball's married his first wife, Lucy May Dickinson (1842 - 1873) on 09-05-1863 in Newaygo County. They had four children, William Arthur (b. 1866), George Ezra (b. 1868), Leota Nellie (b. 1870, married George Whitman), and Mary May (1873 - 1950)

Lucy apparently died at or shortly after the birth of Mary May, who was then raised by Lucy's sister Mary Dickinson Weaver and was known as Lula Weaver.

Mr. Kimball then married the widow of Amos Dorwin, Lydia L. David (1835 -
During the Civil War, Mr. Kimball served in Company D, 27th Regiment of the Michigan Volunteer Infantry.

According to another contributor, Mr. Kimball actually died in Antrim County, Michigan, which explains the lack of a death record in Newaygo County. His death ceritificate shows that he was born on 21 March 1846, which agrees with his age of 4 years in the 1850 Census. His death certificate also shows that he died of heart disease on 27 January 1924, Manceola, Antrim County, Michigan. But he was buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, Fremont, Newaygo County, Michigan.
