Reference: 1850CEN. Horace F. Kimball
Birth Date originally calculated from 1850 Census, showing Horace as age 2. He may very well be father of Elwin Kimball, buried in the Hill Dale Cemetery in Grantham. This Elwin is mentioned, briefly, in the 'Pictorial History of Grantham' (located in the Hunt Room of Nashua, New Hampshire Library). Also, if same one, in directory of 1885-6 a Horace Kimball is listed as a farm laborer in Canaan. Enfield records indicate he died at Danbury.

NOTE: THIS Emma born 1879, NOT 1850. 1850 Emma is Horace's sister, not his daughter (as indicated by LDS' IGI records).
NOTE: In V.R. of Enfield, Horace is listed as son of Samuel M. Kimball and Nancy M. Fisher. This is surely something to look into, though I don't believe it to be correct, at this point in my research (Jun-2003).
Horace and Flora are listed in 1930 in home of daughter Lizzie, and her husband, Arthur P. Cole, in Lebanon, NH.
