Seeking parents of John Kimbell (b. ca. 1775, Rhode Island) and his possible elder brother or cousin (Joseph Kimball, b. ca. 1770, who was in the 1790 Census at Clarendon, Vermont; who had a baby boy named John).   Assuming they are brothers, did John join his brother in moving to Vermont between 1790 and 1800? Or perhaps John Kimball was already there in 1790 and living in another household (as a laborer/servant). Could he be living with Jonathan Eddy who had a second male over 16 years old in the household? Jonathan Eddy was a brother of Peleg Eddy whose widow married John Kimbell. Source for Jonathan Eddy:  Another household with an extra male was Abraham Salisbury who was father of Peleg Eddy's first wife. And lots of other households in Clarendon with more than one male over 16 years old in 1790.

The 1774 census of Rhode Island seems only to show three Kimbell families, all in Gloucester, R.I. Only John and Asa showed young males, John with 1 and Asa with 4.

In the 1782 census, there was Asa with 4 and John with 3.

There were also Kimballs, but I’d start with these two men. Have you investigated them? Asa was way up in Barton, Vermont in 1791, so maybe I’d start with John.
