The 1840 census in Skowhegan has a John Kimball, age between 60-70 (our John would have been about 65), with two females in the household, one age 60-70 (presumably his wife Beulah/Bulah), and one age 20-30 (a daughter?). There is a Joseph Kimball (age 30-40), a Peter Kimball (age 20-30), and a John Kimball Jr. (age 30-40) living nearby with their families.[2]
