    Notes 
    • Moved from Bradford, about 1765, and settled on Queen street. He was a man of strong character Rev. Mr. Price says of him, "Possessing great self-command, a sound judgment, and unwavering integrity, he soon came into public notice, and was elected selectman in 1768, in which office he served nine years. In our Revolutionary struggle he manifested a truly patriotic spirit, readily accepted those appointments with others which involved the dearest interests of individuals and of the public. He contributed to the security of our independence, not merely by his assiduous services at home, but endured the privations of four campaigns in defence of his country. In one of them he volunteered as a private soldier; but in the other three he bore a captain's commission, and at Bennington received a wound at the head of his company; a precious memento of that signal battle. Capt. Kimball was a valuable citizen, a must esteemed neighbor and a consistent man."

      The diary kept by Capt. Kimball in the campaign of 1776, and at Bennington, show he was a prompt, efficient and brave soldier. He barely mentions that he was wounded at Bennington; leaving to others to speak of his bravery.

      He moved from Queen to Water street after the Revolution and continued til his death at the age of 72, a useful and honored citizen. It may be said that Capt. Peter Kimball and Col. Henry Gerrish were leading spirits in the town during the Revolutionary period. Both were military officers; and the promptness with which they ordered out their commands when called upon,attests their efficiency.
