Been concentrating on my Solomon Kimbrell tonight and discovered he had a son named Bazel/Basel/Basil, born 1876 in TX.This is why your post caught my eye initially.
Solomon was b. about 1828 in TN.I don't yet know who his first wife was, but he had 2 kids in AR bet 1850-1860, then he moved to TX and the rest of his children were born there. I found him in 1880 in Montague Co. TX with who we believe is his second wife, Nancy, who was a widow with one son.
Some searches tonight led me to a Solomon Kimbrell in Madison Co., AR in 1850.He is age 21, b. in TN, and I believe he is the same person as my Solomon.He and a Maria Kimbrell, age 40, b. TN, are the only Kimbrells in Madison Co. and the odd thing is that Maria is shown by herself in one household, and Solomon is right next door in a separate household.There are 8 other children with him (he's the oldest) but they don't look like his kids - they look like his siblings.I also found a Mortality Record for 1850 Madison for a 20 year old Thomas J. Kimbrell who is probably related to this bunch.Solomon is shown b. in TN and all others are b. in AR.
In checking the earlier census records, there is a William R. Kimbrell who was in Madison in 1840 (age 30-40) and the kids seem to match those found in 1850, but I haven't checked it carefully yet to decide if he was Maria's husband and all the children are theirs.
In earlier years, Ancestry.com shows William R. Kimbrell in Lawrence Co. AR from 1836 through 1839.
Madison, Searcy, and Lawrence are all in the north part of Arkansas.
So, I think we might have a connection here but I sure don't know how exactly.William could be Bazil's brother?My Solomon might be Bazil's son instead of William's (long shot :-).
Let me know what you think or if you have any other info that might prove a link.
