PS: I have thought of something more on the 2nd of May it snowed nearly all day. We have had a very cold spring but we have a good prospect for a crop, the wheat is headed out and a fair prospect for a crop. We will have plenty of fruit, peaches and apples, I have corn big enough to plow. Old Bill Barnett and his wife is parted and he married a young girl. Old Hiernan Jacobs is about dead with consumption.
Hiernan must be the father of all the Jacobs girls that married into the Kimberling family.

John is felt to be John Kimberling first child and son of William Harrison Kimberling. It is recorded that John married Elizabeth Jacobs. They were the parents of one son. She died and John than married Laura Alice Gillespie.
Mat married one of John Brannons girls, used to live on your place. Brannons lives in the Jack Stephins house and built a part of that place.
It is recorded that Nathaniel Kimberling, fourth child and son of William Harrison Kimberling, married Maggie Love Brannon, not sure if the "MAT" referred to here is Nathaniel or not.
