Death Dispute

(2)Land: Benjamin Kimball was living in Newbern, VA in 19 Apr 1745, when he petitioned for 200 acres in Edgecombe Co, N.C. !Birthdate: Based on land bounty he received in 1728, assuming he would receive this around age 20 years of age. !Deathdate: Died in 1785/6 in Henry Hampton Ord. Camden County, SC. Benjamin wrote his will in 1781, but it was filed on 4 Feb 1786.

Benjamin Kimball is mentioned in the 20th Century Shearin Genealogy as a husband of Lucy Catherine Shearin. Benjamin was a legatee in her father, Joseph Shearin's will. He and his wife Lucy Catherine signed as a witness to the will. He was born about 1706 in Virginia and died in 1794 in Warren County, North Carolina. He left an extensive will Dec 12, 1794 in Warren, North Carolina listing all of his nine children, David, William, Leonard, James, Benjamin Jr., Charles, Ransom, Rebecca Armistead, and Amey Jones. He does not mention Lucy or any wife because apparently she had preceded him in death. He requested after several things were listed about his estate that his farm was to be sold and after paying off all his debts were to be divided between his children. An extensive inventory was taken and his children are listed again as receiving inheritances.

As you can see, he is listed dying in South Carolina, and North Carolina,The will posted on here Clearly list Warren County North Carolina as it's origin. And Also lists Rebecca Armistead as one of his children.

Benjiman was born about 1708. [4]
