Classification: Biography
Surnames: Kimball, Layson, Mackay
I also descend from George W. Kimball and Patience Cobb through their son, Lewis Alston Bolen Cobb Kimball. My grandmother was his daughter. Her name was Georgiana Kimball Mackay. She was married to Frederick Mackay. The story I was told is this: Pharoah Kimball was engaged to be married. One day, while building a house for himself and fiance, she drove up (in a carriage) with another man. They proceeded to laugh at Pharoah and the two men got into a fight during which the other man was accidentally killed. Judge Kimball sent Pharoah to Kentucky where he assumed the name of Robert Milton Layson. Georgiana located Layson family members and communicated with them. At that time they were not aware that his real name was Pharoah Cobb Kimball. My cousin Elizabeth Mackay had copies of letters regarding this. Sadly, she died a month ago. I will try to locate them and will get in touch if I find them. Pharoah was Georgiana's uncle.
