I'm searching for info regarding Catharine Kimbrel, Rachel Kimbrel,, and/or John Joseph Kimbrel in conjunction with William Walker. All of these people were born around 1790-1800 in Surry/Wilkes County, North Carolina, and all moved to Henry County, Indiana, in about 1831-33. If you have any more info than what follows, please advise:
WHAT I KNOW:
William Walker (1790–1855) married Catharine Kimbrel (1790–1835) in Surry Co., NC. These were my ancestors. By 1820 they had two sons, and by 1830 they had 8 children. In about 1833 they moved to Henry Co., Indiana. Catharine died there in 1835.
William Walker then married Rachel Kimbrel (1799–1890). Rachel appears to have been a widow, with two young children, when they married in 1837. I don't know if "Kimbrel" was her maiden name, or her married name. Rachel was born in NC, and apparently moved to Indiana in about 1833 at roughly the same time as the Walkers.
William Walker had a close neighbor, Joseph Kimbrel, who was born in Wilkes Co. (formerly part of Surry Co.), NC, and moved to Indiana at about the same time as the Walkers. Joseph married Clarissa (Clary) Hays in Wilkes Co., NC, in 1824. He died 14 Sep 1854.
It seems to me very highly probable that all the above Kimbrels were related, but I have no knowledge about how. Any information on their relationship or their ancestry would be much appreciated.
