Does every genealogist have a serious brick wall? One they’ve worked on for years? In case you’ve forgotten, Thomas Winston Kimbrough was born according to a source or two, in Louisa County Virginia in 1796. Born to whom is the unanswered question! He married and subsequently moved to western Kentucky around 1819 where he lived until his death in 1868. In our search for T. W. K.’s parents we have become familiar with a wealth of Kimbrough information. Through investigating multiple Kimbrough families and trying to reconstruct information from burned counties we have come across large number of descendants. We’re hoping by posting information to help others climb over their walls, someone may have the footholds for ours.
The family of Thomas Winston was large and members lived in several Kentucky counties and some in Tennessee. One of the items is the following Bible Record that was found on PERSI. I carefully reviewed the copies of pages we received and transcribed them, as you will see. If you’d like to have copies of the originals I worked with I’m happy to email them to you – they’re too ugly to post.
Transcription of copies of Kimbrough Bible 1820
This Bible was undoubtedly from the family of Meridith Garth and Mildred Ann Maria Terry Kimbrough. Meridith was the oldest son of Thomas and is well documented in a variety of ways. No one mentions his grandparents, however.
I have been also tracking this line as my grandmother was a Kimbro, and my grandfather a Gooch would love to see these-also connect through Rice
haven’t investigated these connections but note that there’s a Susan Kimbrough Gooch buried in the cemetery:
Wife of Gideon
Rice rings a bell, but have done so much research hard to know which bell is ringing . No Rice in my database right now. I’ll look a bit.
Your spelling causes me to believe you’re from the “middle” Tennessee/Kentucky line?
Actually from the Caswell County, NC branch, but some of the family did move to Tennessee
