Death of Rev. John Kimball.

John Kimball died at his home in San Francisco on July 2, aged 65 years. Mr. Kimball was a native of Barton and the son of J. H. Kimball and grandson of Judge John Kimball. He lived in Barton until 1850 when he entered Dartmouth College from which institution he was graduated. He studied theology at the Union Theological Seminary in New York and went to California in 1860. During the war, he was chaplain of Carver hospital in Washington. He returned to California and preached for a time in San Francisco, Oakland, and Grass Valley. For many years he was the editor of the Pacific, the organ of the Congregationalists on the Pacific coast. He made this paper a most valuable religious journal, bringing to it ripe scholarship and a strong religious training. He was a member of the Congregational Club, superintendent for many years of the Sunday School, and occupied a conspicuous place as a religious teacher. About three and one-half years ago he came to Barton to place the remains of his wife, Annie E., in the family lot.
