Biography

He married and Mary Pomeroy in Maricopa County, Arizona. The first four children were born there. All later children were born in Salt Lake City. The 1900 US Census lists his occupation as a Jailer at the City Prison.

It appears that in his later years he wrote several articles for the Improvement Era: Solomon F. Kimball, Belated Emigrants of 1856 - Improvement Era, Feb. 1914, pp. 287–88.

Thrilling Experiences by Solomon F. Kimball (1909) This is one of the most readable of the early autobiographical pioneer accounts. "Sol" Kimball (son of Heber C. Kimball and brother to general authority J. Golden Kimball) received spiritual promptings to share many of his personal experiences - the good ones as well as the bad ones - as a testimony of the Lord's intervention throughout his life. Coupled with his superb humor and spiritual insight, Brother Kimball shares several forgotten glimpses of hardworking pioneer Saints in their hostile environments; but, even more exciting are the personal struggles, experiences, and rewards that come to the author. To understand the day-to-day lives of LDS pioneers, this book should be on the reading lists of all LDS youth, teachers and researchers. 123pp. 978-1-930679-06-1 [-biography-youth-]
