Hello - I'm interested in hearing and all information about the Kimbrell and Britt families of Gwinnett County. The very helpful and knowledgeable folks at the Historical Society confirmed that their farms were adjacent to each other, and my great-grandfather's parents were a Kimbrell (Thomas Jefferson Kimbrell) and a Britt (Caroline Octavia Britt), respectively. Additionally, Jefferson Britt served as a "character witness" in Jackson Henry Kimbrell's (ultimately disallowed) appeal for compensation under the Southern Claims Commission in the early 1870's. I suppose I'm just interested in hearing any old stories or recollections, or finding out exactly who J.H. Kimbrell's parents might have been.
