Today I sourced the census entry for the Robert E. Kimble family in the 1900 census of Noble, Twp., Jay Co., IN. Robert married my widowed 2nd-great grandmother, Mary Jane (Sherrick) Haley on May 8, 1897 in Jay Co., IN.
The census record clearly showed Robert's middle initial as 'E', but I've seen it listed as 'N' as well on the marriage record. His son John W. Kimble was also living with them in the 1900 census. Robert's occupation was that of a farmer, his father was born in New York and his mother was born in Ohio.
