Looking for the first husband of Malinda Thomas, daughter of Isaac and jane Thomas, born about 1867 who married a Kimball about 1887 and had 2 sons, Cleveland D. and Arlie Kimball born in 1888 and 1890.
In the 1900 census for Ward 9, Omaha,Douglas County, Malinda is married to A H Burr who was born in Connecticut as his 3rd wife according to the census records.
The 1920 census show Cleveland and Arby Kimball as step-sons of A H Burr and Malinda Burr.
Thanks in advance.

Malinda Jane Thomas' first husband was George Washington Kimball, born about 1849. The were married in January 1887 in Keya Paha County, Nebraska, per the records of http://keyapahamarriages.wordpress.com/n-z/ -- hopefully you can access this. Unfortunately that's all I know about George Washington Kimball.

Arley "Arthur" Kimball was married to my distant cousin Lennia Shafer Kimball (she is the daughter of Thomas I. Shafer, who is the older brother of my great-grandfather, Josephus Shafer.) They lived in Omaha. Arley worked at the Omaha Theater as a stage hand, projectionist and in other capacities. Arley was born 14 Feb 1890 in Iowa. He died 01 Jun 1967 in Omaha. After Lennia died in August of 1966, Arley asked his cousin Pearl Thomas to come and stay with him in his house and care for him. Pearl did this and was with him until he died. Pearl then stayed in the house until her own death in 1977.

Cleveland David Kimball was a policeman in Omaha, and later a detective. He was born 18 Jan 1888, and he died 25 June 1958 in Nebraska. He was married to Margaret M. McNeill (1888- Nov 1952).

Malinda Jane Thomas Kimball Burr died in December 1948 in Omaha. I have not confirmed this myself, but I believe she is buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Do you know anything more about Arley Kimball that you can share with me? Or his wife Lennia Shafer Kimball? How are you related to Arley and Cleveland? Do you by chance have any photos of any of the above folks that you can share?
