Important Factor In City.
Few men living today played such
an important part in the early history
of the city as Mr. Kimball. He was a
wagon maker by trade, and after com
ing here from his native state. New
Hampshire, he followed his vocation,
finally opening a shop at Sixteenth
street and Third avenue. The firm
name was Gibbons & Kimball. During
the civil war Mr. Kimball represented
the city in dispensing aid among the
families of the soldiers who had gone
to the front to fight for their flag.
When William Ef gelston resigned
the mayoralty of the city Aug. 5, 1867,
Mr. Kimball was elected to fill the va
vancy, completing the term. In 1875
74 he served as city marshal. In more
recent years he acted as truant officer
under appointment by the board of edu
0ly fill Id Droirnfd.
Mrs. Kimball was a Miss Reynolds,
a sister of the late Elisha Reynolds of
this city. One child, a daughter, was
born to Mr. and Mrs. Kimball. She
was drowned 20 years ago while bath
ing In Rock river. When Mr. Kim
ball's life helpmate left him 10 years
ago, he felt a longing to return to the
scenes of his childhood in New Eng
land. His sister invited him to come
to her home, and he accepted, though
reluctantly leaving a city, with his
legion of friends, where he had grown
from young manhood to a patriarchal
Mat of IIlRh Idmln.
Mr. Kimball was a devout Presbyter-
ian, and worshipped at the Central
church here. Politically, he was a
staunch democrat. . He was a gentle
man of culture and high Ideals; a man
strong in his support of the right and
in denunciation of wrong; a man of
splendid character; a generous true
