James E. Kimball

Lamoille County News Dealer Dec 25, 1862

Off Cape Hatteras, Sept 4, onboard the Steamer Fulton, James E. Kimball, aged 54 years. The deceased was a member of Capt. Grout's Co., recruited in Hyde Park a little over a year ago. When he started for the war, his only sorrow was that he left his faithful wife alone in almost the agony of despair, feeling the painful foreboding that she should never see him again- which prediction has been sadly fulfilled. His age is sufficient to exempt him from military duty, but yet his patriotism over ruled every obstacle, and he laid himself a willing sacrifice on the altar of his country. He was a respected citizen, and a member of the Congregational Church in North Hyde Park, and his now lonely widow "mourns not as those without hope", having the assurance that " he is not dead, but sleepeth."
