Need info on William Kimbrell, b. ca 1794 TN, m. Permelia WEBSTER. Wm died Oct 1869 in Wabash Co, IL. He is father of Civil War soldier John Preston Kimbrell (10 Mar 1822-9 Mar 1901, Albion, Edwards Co IL) who m. lst Rachel GRAY, d/o John GRAY, m. #2 Mary Compton 12 Mar 1866, widow of John HENIKEN who was killed in Battle of Atlanta. Both had children, some of his blind, and then had more children. Their son Joshua Kimbrell m. Sarah Caroline WADE, my gg grandmother.

Don't have marriage date for William and don't know who his parents are, etc. There are stories of fighting Indians and burying the father (of Wm?) between corn rows so the Indians would not return and take his scalp.
