Miscellaneous Information

1) Husband of Emily Jane Andis: Charles Warren Kimble - born 01 Jun 1876 Mt Vernon, Skagit, WA; died 10 Nov 1952 Mt Vernon, Skagit, WA; obituary; buried Mt Vernon Cemetery, Mt Vernon, Skagit, WA - unmarked; son of Charles Henry Kimble (04 Aug 1856 Scotland Co, MO - 1922 Mt Vernon, Skagit, WA; son of David Everett Kimble and Rebecca Wortman) and Clara Ford (14 Jun 1863 Whidley Island, WA - 28 Oct 1942 Mt Vernon, Skagit, WA; daughter of Levi M Ford and Rebecca Maddox); Charles and Clara buried Mt Vernon Cemetery, Mt Vernon, Skagit, WA - tombstone photo; signature:


2) Emily is mentioned in the probate document of her mother, Calvania.

3) Emily was mentioned in the probate papers of her father, James.

4) We have a copy of the marriage records of Emily and Albert.

5) We have a copy of the marriage certificate of Emily and Charles.

6) We have a news article celebrating Emily Jane's 90th birthday.

7) We have a copy of Emily's obituary and  death certificate. Cause of death: cerebral hemorrhage/cardiac decomposition, hypertension. 

* Note: Emily's death certificate notes her birth date as 29 Jan 1870.  We find this suspect for two reasons. First, her parents were married January 29, 1871 in Ironton, MO.  Secondly,  we find it highly suspicious that she was born EXACTLY one year EARLIER than their marriage.  We believe she was born sometime in 1871 and there was confusion as to actual dates. 
Records that support our conclusion are the census records only:
1870 census (not found)
1880 census, Emily's age supports birth in 1871.
1900 census (not found)
1910, taken 21 Apr 1910 - supports birth in 1870
1920, taken 9 January 1920 - supports birth in 1871
1930, taken 21 Apr 1930 - supports birth in 1870
