Joseph Kimball is recognized by many southern Kimball/Kimbrell genealogists as the Progenitor of the "Southern" tier of Kimballs, Kimbels, Kimbroughs, Kimbells, Kimbriels, Kimbrells, etc,. who migrated from Virginia throughout the Southern States in the period 1700 to 1850 and beyond. (Bio originally written by Butch Kimbrell.)
His children were:
SURRY COUNTY TITHABLES: 1693 Lawn's Creek Parish, upper Sunken Marsh Surry, Viriginia, Tho: & Jeffrey Busby, Jos: Kimball, Con Indian - 4.
William Peebles who married both Judith Drayton and Elizabeth Busby, widow of Thomas Busby was grandfather to John Peebles Sr., whose parents were William Peebles and Elizabeth Hamlin and the step-son of Joseph Shearing. Joseph Shearin was the father-in-law of BenJamin Kimball , son of this man Joseph Kimball.
Thomas Busby was known for trading with the Indians. With this in mind, Joseph Kimball could have been the same. Joseph's sons Charles and William were well known Indian interpreters. Another Indian trader of the family was Robert Hicks. Robert was the father of Joseph Kimball Jr.'s wife, Sarah Hicks.
Charles City County Order book,1694-1700: "Joseph Perry brings action against Thomas Harrison for defamatory words,to 10,000 lbs. tobacco damages. Jury is impanelled with 12 men, and there were 3 witnesses, one being Joseph Kimloe" (Kimball).
Joseph died 1711 in Surry County, Virginia. Thomas Avent witnessed Joseph Kimball's will.
When Joseph died, his estate totalled 10 English pounds. Francis Mallory was made the Executor of his estate, as he was Joseph's largest creditor in Surry County, Virginia. It took several years for Mr. Mallory to complete his task, though it's possible he was just a very busy man. He repeatedly missed court where he didn't show up to finish with the estate. At least six times he did not show up, leaving the matter to be continued to the next court date. He presented the final settlement in 1713.
