The information following on Lt. Moses Kimball is excerpted from The Lt.Moses and Jemima Clement Kimball Family, by Pauline Kimball Skinner,William N. Cann, Inc., publisher.

It is not known when Moses Kimball was commissioned Lieutenant, although it was probably after the Revolution. His tombstone in the Warrenton,Ohio cemetary reads: "To the memory of Lt. Moses Kimball, a soldier inthe Revolution. Died November 9, 1828 in the 82nd year of his age."

Referring to the N.H. State Papers, Revolution Vol I, pg. 50, 185, 216 &Vol II, pg. 408, Moses is credited with having served in the Battle of Lexington. Four days after this battle, he was back in New Hampshire,where he signed up in Cpt Baldwin's Col, Col. Stark's Regt as a Sergeant. This Company fought at Bunker Hill, where Moses received a wound in his left thumb. Jemima's pension papers state: "During thebattle of Bunker Hill, Cpt. Baldwin was killed and died in my husband's arms." Moses' name appears on the roll of the Cpt. Henry Dearborn's Co.,Col. Arnold's detachment and on the paryoll of the Company that marched from Cambridge to Quebec in 1775; on the roll of the men from Hopkintonto join the northern continental army at Saratoga, John Hale's Co.

Although Moses never applied for a pension, Jemima's application for pension was executed on October 4, 1838, at which time she was 85 years old and living in Warren Township, Jefferson County, Ohio. Not much is known of his early years. He was left an orphan at the ageof five; his grandfather, Ebenezer Kimball, died young. Quite early,we find Moses in New Hopkinton, New Hampshire, where he met and marriedJemima Clement, who was a second cousin once removed.

All ten of their children except the youngest, Charles, were born in New Hopkinton.Charles was born in Portsmouth.
In 1801, Moses and Jemima left New Hopkinton for Wheeling, West Virginia,at which time Moses bought land in Warrenton, Ohio, about 9 miles up theOhio River.
The old Kimball farmhouse was remodelled in 1940. The porches were enclosed with brick and the whole house painted red. It made an imposing sight when viewed from the road as one drove south from Steubenville.
