Comment: The correct spelling of the surname is KIMBLE, as evidence by her marriage license and other records. Mary Jane SHERRICK was my paternal 2nd-great grandmother. Her first husband, George Washington HALEY, passed away in 1892 and she remarried in 1897 to Robert E. KIMBLE. This obituary gives some new data for me, including places of residence of her children during this time period.
