Searching for James Walker Kimbrel family
Posted by: JIM KIMBREL (ID *****9447) Date: April 21, 2006 at 20:50:56

I am attempting to locate information on my paternal grandfather James Walker Kimbrel (3/24/1870-6/7/1948). He married Ellen Virginia Ligon (2/24/1877-3/24/1949). The family originated in Southern Georgia, perhaps around Colquitt, and migrated to north Florida around 1900. He worked in the saw mill business. He and Ellen had 7 children, Walker, Virginia aka Dewey, Elvester (EV), Denver, Claude, Adelaide,& Winifred, in addition to Alma and Leah, both of whom passed away as children. A James Kimbrel, who was 10 at the time, was recorded in the 1880 census as being part of the household as a grandchild of Clarissa Rawls, who was the head of household, and located in Colquitt, Miller County, Georgia. I'm not certain if this is my grandfather but the age matches. Other household members were William, Franklin,Thomas, & Susan Rawls, shown as children of Clarissa Rawls, and Clara Kimbrel,also shown as a grandchild. Perhaps a daughter of Clarissa Rawls, but not shown as a household member, was the mother to James and Clara. Any help in piecing together this family tree will be greatly appreciated.
