Finding Aid for the Kimberlin Family Collection

This collection pertains to the Kimberlin family of Cass County, Missouri. Deeds, land patents and title abstracts for land purchased by the Kimberlin and Pulliam family date from the 1840s to 1914. Other documents related to the family include farm leases, land patents, insurance policies, and receipts. Some receipts date back to the 1840s and include items sold and purchased, as well as a receipt of money from an insurance company for the theft of a horse. Some of the other items relate to their professional life as a judge, county clerk, and a farmer. Items reflecting their businesses include weight tickets for corn and other crops grown from the 1890s as well as ledgers with payment information. Other interesting items in the collection include Civil War payment vouchers and exemption for service given to Joseph Kimberlin based on his age. The items in this collection had been originally stored in brown document bags inside a trunk. Amoskeag Manufacturing Company, a major supplier of denim to Levi Strauss, produced one of the bags that still has a portion of the logo visible on the bag.
