I have been working the Dilson Kimbrell line for years with little luck.Dilson was b. 1803 Oglethorpe Co., GA and migrated to AL, MS, then Winn Parish, LA.
Today I viewed a very old pocket purse, billfold type, that was in the Kimbrell family possessions and in it is written "James Kimbrel 30 December 1827."
His son James Henry was b. 1840 and died 1849 Brandon Co., MS, so this is no doubt not a reference to that son.
I feel relatively sure he had a brother named James S. Kimbrel(l) but have no real proof, at any rate the brother James or James S. would no doubt have been born prior to this date and if my theory is correct would not have died that date as I believe he was in MS as well after the date on the billfold/wallet.
I figured perhaps someone could connect this name and date.
