Biography of Delos W. Kimball


Kimball, Delos W., Holland, son of James and Esther (Wheelock) Kimball, was born in Holland, N. Y., May 13, 1831. James Kimball, father of Delos W., was a native- of Vermont and was one of the early settlers of Erie county, coming to Holland in 1816, when there were no roads and the country was an unbroken wilderness. Delos Kimball received his education in Holland, after which he was married, in 1853, to Lucretia Davis. In the spring of 1854 he, with his young wife, moved to Illinois, where he was in the employ of his uncle, Mr. Wheelock, who was the proprietor of a large paper mill, and remained there two and a half years. September 9, 1855, a son, Frank, was born to them, and Mrs. Kimball died in the November following. In the fall of 1866 Mr. Kimball returned to Holland and settled on the farm he now owns, and in 1865 he married Mrs. Hall, a widow lady living in Holland. Mr. Kimball is the owner of 340 acres of well improved land and makes a specialty of dairying; he is also a large grain grower, and one of the most progressive farmers in Holland. Mr. Kimball has served six years as assessor of the town of Holland; he was elected first in 1887; his first three years as assessor must have been satisfactory to the taxable inhabitants of Holland or he would not have been liable to have gained his re-election in the year 1890.
