I am trying to locate descendants of Leonard Kimball. He was the son of Reuben Kimball and Clarissa Hyde, probably born about 1816 in VT or NY. Leonard married a lady named Jennie or Jane. He died 2 Oct. 1872 in Buffalo Prairie, Rock Island co., IL, leaving his widow who remarried between Nov. 1874 and Sept. 1875 to a Mr. Opdyke. He also left four minor children, Jasper Jacob Kimball, William Henry Clay Kimball, Margurett (or Margaret) Clarissa Kimball and Leonard Yates Kimball. According to court recors of 1906, Margurett married a Dorsey.
On the 1880 US Census, Jennie is shown as Jennie Opdyke and living at Grant, Hamilton Co., Nebraska. She was 38 years old with children Minnie Opdyke, age 3, b. IL and Leonard Kimball, 7, b. IL in her household. I cannot locate the other three Kimball children.
