Joseph Kimball married Ann (aka Nancy Lothrop) Niles (1799-1868) [[Niles-876]] West Fairlee, VT,  the youngest daughter of Hon. Nathaniel Niles (174101828) [[Niles-875]].  I'm working on a quantity of correspondence of the Niles/Kimball/Watson/Goodwin families from 1840-1900 found in our attic which was Nathaniel Nile's home and the farm was a gift to daughter Ann when she married. Definitive information about Joseph continues to elude me, and I'd be grateful for any leads.

 I realized should have been more specific about the blind alleys I've already been down.  The find a grave information is incorrect -- ALL of those gravestones are actually located here in West Fairlee Center Cemetery and provide no clues to Joseph's origins or family;  the census information does not include his birthplace;  he is mentioned in various Niles' genealogies as marrying Ann (Nancy) Niles but -- so-far -- I've found no clues e.g. "son of..." or "from...".

CITING THIS RECORD

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8W6-4R4 : accessed 7 April 2016), Joseph Kimball in household of Nathaniel Kimball, West Fairlee, Orange, Vermont, United States; citing enumeration district ED 147, sheet 245A, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 1346; FHL microfilm 1,255,346.

Thanks for the attempts -- I realized should have been more specific about the blind alleys I've already been down.  The find a grave information is incorrect -- ALL of those gravestones are actually located here in West Fairlee Center Cemetery and provide no clues to Joseph's origins or family;  the census information does not include his birthplace;  he is mentioned in various Niles' genealogies as marrying Ann (Nancy) Niles but -- so-far -- I've found no clues e.g. "son of..." or "from...".  Family tales surmise he was the "hired man", but from the content and quality of the correspondence it is clear that he was fairly well educated, accomplished, pious, and well-matched to the socio-economic standing of the family.

This book MAY have some clues. There are certainly many Joseph Kimballs in it, but perhaps not the right one. I didn't search it thoroughly to try to find your Joseph, though:

[https://archive.org/stream/historyofkimball01morr#page/n5/mode/2up ''History of the Kimball family in America, from 1634 to 1897 : and of its ancestors the Kemballs or Kemboldes of England; with an account of the Kembles of Boston, Massachusetts''], published 1897, by Leonard Allison Morrison.

Good luck!
