Rutland Daily Herald, May 4, 1914:

Joseph Warner Kimball of No. 33 Madison street, a resident of Rutland for over 50 years, and a Civil War veteran, died Saturday night at about 11 o'clock at the Rutland hospital after a week's illness at the institution with a complication of diseases. He was born October 23, 1828, in Methuen, Mass., and came to Rutland while a young man. He enlisted May 31, 1861, in company G of the Fifth Vermont infantry and was honorably discharged October 18, 1865. He had been employed for many years as an engineer on the Rutland railroad and also worked as a carpenter for many years.

He was a member of Roberts post, G.A.R.

Mr. Kimball is survived by his wife, Mrs. Arabell Fisher Kimball, who is 83 years old, and is ill at the home of a niece, Mrs. T.A. Davis, of No. 54 Prospect street, and a brother, Stillman Kimball of Woburn, Mass. He is also survived by two nieces, Mrs. Charles W. Foy, with whom he made his home, and Mrs. T.A. Davis.

There will be private funeral services at the residence at No. 33 Madison Street, at 2:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. All members of Roberts post, G.A.R., and the Roberts Relief Corps are invited to be present. The Grand Army ritual will be observed at the house.
