  • ID: I835
  • Name: Abigail Kimball
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1758 in Wenham, Essex, MA 1
  • Death: 21 MAR 1846 in ,Yarmouth, Nova Scotia
  • Age: 87 1
  • Baptism: 9 APR 1758 Wenham, MA
  • Note:
    If the Yarmouth Genealogies printed in the Yarmouth Herald is correct and our Abigail died at the age of 87, then she would be born between 22-Mar-1758 and 21-Mar-1759. Also, Abigail's sister-in-law Mary Holmes married a Samuel Kimball in 1776. Thus our Abigail should have a brother named Samuel born before 1760, probably around 1750-1752.

    IGI lists no Abigail Kimballs born in either CT or RI, but does list the following born in MA:

    Abigail b. 1 Jun 1755 Dover Richard Kimball & Ann Hanson
    Abigail bpt 9 Nov 1755 Ipswich Benjamin Kimball
    Abigail b. 20 Feb 1756 Bradford Nathan Kimball & Sussanah
    Abigail bpt 4 Dec 1757 Hopkinton Richard Kimball
    Abigail bpt 9 Apr 1758 Wenham Nathaniel Kimball

    as well as

    Samuel b. 11 Nov 1750 Wenham Nathaniel Kimball & Martha

    Thus it would appear that there is a reasonable chance that Abigail and Samuel are the children of Nathaniel and Martha Kimball of Wenham, MA. I've listed them as her parents and 9 Apr 1758 as her baptism date based solely on this speculation.

    According to AHD:
    Nathaniel was from England, reputed to be the brother of John Holmes the
