The remains of Rev. John Kimball arrived in this village yesterday morning from San Francisco, Cal., and were placed in the cemetery in the afternoon, a short service being held at the grave, Rev. Mr. Sheaff officiating. Mr. Kimball was the son of J. H. Kimball and grandson of Judge John Kimball. He was born in Barton and lived here 'till 1850 when he left for college. He graduated at Dartmouth College and then went through Union Theological school in New York.
Mr. Kimball went to California in 1860. During the Civil War, he was Chaplain of Carver Hospital in Washington. After the war, he returned to Cal., and practiced for a time in San Francisco, Oakland, and Grass Valley. For at least 18 years he has been managing editor of the "Pacific," the oldest paper on the coast, and the organ of the Congo Church. About three and one years ago he came on here to place the remains of his wife, Annie, in the family lot.
The San Francisco papers speak very highly of him. Mr. Kimball's son, J. Vernon Kimball, accompanied the remains of his father here. Austin Kimball and wife, and son of New York came on to attend the funeral. Austin Kimball and his family, and Vernon Kimball will remain during the week.
