Re: Who is John Calhoun Kimberl?
Hi Mary Ann Bell,
I also tried to track down the Kimberl history.The closest I came was finding my grandfather's cousin - Charles Kimberl, and he told me this:
After the Birmingham massacre, a little boy was found.With the help of a schoolteacher, they worked out the spelling of his name K - I - M - B - E - R - L.
Thus was the origin of the name.
I'm not sure of the facts or if the gentleman was pulling my leg, but it seems to help with the fact that there are no Kimberls before that point in time.
That's all I know.
Hi Uncle Chuck!
