Kimel Family

The records from Lower Bermudian Lutheran (PA) do not include documentation of Georg and Catharina Kuemmel's marriage, only that they took communion as husband and wife in 1768. There are records which show that Johann Georg Kimmel was born in 1745 in Germany and immigrated to York Co. PA in 1751 with his father Johann Jacob. Georg and Catherine (Catharina) Kimel were probably married in York (now Adams) Co. PA circa 1765. -- Dan Kimel, e-mail :

By 1773 Catherine Kimel was married to Daniel Evans and had a son named Daniel Evans. In Catherine's will, which was probated in Rowan County 1813, she was Caty Myers, and bequeathed property to her sons, Daniel Evans, Joseph Evans and Barny Kimble. Kathleen Macknicki. Kathleen's e-mail address is:

If Catherine's husband died before 1773, then who is George Kimel who died in 1806 in Rowan (Davidson) Co. NC, age 55 years?

First Generation

Children of possibly George Kimel and Catherine Kimel
Bernhard/Barnabas Kimel (ca. 1770-1837) m. Catharine Weaver (1771-1846)

Second Generation

Children of Bernhard/Barnabas Kimel and Catharine Weaver
Christina Kimel (1795-1858) m. John George Spach
Christian Kimel (1796-?)
Margaretha Kimel m. Peter Meyer, s/o George Meier/Meyer and 1) Catherine Zerbe
Catherine Kimel m. Henry Shutt
Jacob Kimel (1799-1865) m. Nancy Boeckel (marriage record as Pickle; she was d/o Anton Boeckel and Magdalena Rominger)
Andrew Kimel (ca. 1802-? d. between 1870 and 1879) m. 1) Anna (Nancy) Bro (?) 2) Anna Rosina Beroth (1805-1879)
[error corrected 9/3/07]

unknown male (1817) (probably died young)

Who is the William L. Kimball who married Elizabeth Holder in 1847? Was he really a Kimel?

Third Generation

Children of Jacob Kimel and Nancy Pickle/Boeckel
Alfred Kimel (1827-1870) m. 1) Catherine Seitz (1826-?); 2) Cynthia Jones (1838-1923), d/o Joseph Jones
Theophilus Kimel (1829-1899) m. Charity A. Longworth (1837-1908)
David C. Kimel (1831-1892) m. Sarah S. ____ (1834-1896)
Maria Elizabeth Kimel (1833-1857)
[name corrected 3/1/04] m. David Franklin Spach (1831-1865)
Sarah Kimel (1836-1864)
unknown female
Noah L. Kimel (1842-1893) m. Mary M. Yokely (1846-1933)
Daniel A. Kimel (1844-1898) m. Mary Cornelia Rominger (1851-1925)
Jonas E. Kimel (1847-1918) m. Drusilla Sink (1848-1923)


Children of Andrew Kimel and (probably) Nancy Bro
Catherine M. Kimel (1824-1911) m. Archibald Sink (1854-1873)
[death date corrected 3/1/04]
Sanford Kimel (ca. 1827-bef. ca. 1857) m. Eliza J. Brewer (ca. 1823-ca. 1857)
Caroline Kimel (1829-1858) m. James Armsworthy
Emeline Kimel (1832-?) m. 1) Lewis Nathaniel Spach (1833-ca. 1865); 2) John Joseph Walk (1814-1874)
John W. Kimel (ca. 1836-?)

Previously we stated that these were Anna Rosina Beroth's children. Davidson County census and other records make it clear that they were children of his first marriage, said to have been to Anna (Nancy) Bro. In 1850 Andrew is head of household, apparently a widower. Rosina Beroth appears as head of household "Rosanna Slater", age 44 (her first husband was Jacob Krause, married 1825; second husband Thomas Slater, married 1841). By 1860 Andrew and Rosina are married. Her death notice (People's Press 7/10/1879 identifies her as the relict of the late Andrew Kimmel). She is buried at Friedberg Moravian, but he is not. Does anyone have an exact death date for him?


Children of Barnabas Kimel and Hannah Fisher
Angeline Kimel (1828-1875) m. Murchison Lafayette Chitty (ca. 1833-bef. 1870)
George W. Kimel (1830-1905) m. Paulina Robertson (m. 1853, Forsyth Co.)
Catharine Kimel (ca. 1833-aft. 1870)
Sarah Anna Kimel (1835-aft. 1870) m. Solomon Chitty (1838-1919)
[death date corrected 3/1/04]
Lewis James Kimel (1837-1915) m. Sarah Elizabeth Sink (1842-1908), d/o Michael Sink and Christina Tesh
James P. Kimel (1847-1930)

Previously we listed Erastus B. Kimel (1852-1931) as the last child of Barnabas and Hannah. He is actually Angeline's son, born before her marriage to Murchison Chitty. His father was George Lagenauer.

Previouly we listed Christian Sink as the father of Sarah Elizabeth Sink. This error corrected 7/23/2004.

Fourth Generation

Children of Alfred Kimel and 2) Cynthia Jones
Emma/Edie F. Kimel (ca. 1863-?)
Sarah Kimel (1864-1945) m. Emanuel Bodsford
Noah Rufus Kimel (1866-1945) m. Sarah C. Livengood (1864-1946), d/o John Livengood and Catherine Lambeth
Phoebe Jane Kimel (1867-1918) m. Robah A. Thomas, s/o Lewis Thomas and Sarah Eliza Miller
John Alfred Kimel (1870-1962) m. Mary Hauser (1876-1970), d/o Philip Alexander Hauser and Margaret Pledger


Children of Theophilus Kimel and Charity Longworth

John F. Kimel (c1871-?)
Jesse Kimel (1873-1931)
Walter J. Kimel (1875-1949) m. Mary E. Clinard

There is a Forsyth Co. marriage license for America Kimel, d/o Theo and Charity, and Enoch Alexander Griffith (1863-1940) in 1885. We believe that this is the same person as Helen listed above, who appears as Helen age 4 in 1870 but as Hellenus age 14, male, in 1880.
