  • Notes 
    • The generally well-done Ancestry of Pam & Jeff Martin site asserts that Israel Kimball was married twice, first to Elizabeth "Betsey" Evans and secondly to Betsy Durrell. But Harold Clarke Durrell's "Philip Durrell and His Descendants" (The New England Historical and Genealogical Register 133:40, 1979) indicates that Betsy Durrell (1782-1869) married a different Israel Kimball, the one who was a son of Isaac3 (Richard2, Caleb1) and Sarah Stone. Which leads us to believe that our Israel Kimball was married only once, and that his one and only wife was Betsey, said to have died in Kennebunk 11 Mar 1843, a daughter of Benjamin Evans and Elizabeth Ricker.
