The first question is, are you sure your paternal line is Kimbrell?The best way to check is to go to FTDNA and have a male Kimbrell in your family tested. Other names that match with Kimbrell are:Kimbell, Kembel, Kimball, Kembold etc.. The Kimball family departed Ipswich,Suffolk, England aboard the Elizabeth in 1634 and landed in Ipswich, Mass. about September, 1634. This information is currently on the net and easy to find.
