Abigail KIMBALL and Captain Nathaniel FROST

Abigail KIMBALL is my second cousin six times removed; we are related through Thomas and Margaret (MEANS) GILPATRICK. Her husband Captain Nathaniel FROST is my fifth cousin seven times removed; through Percival and Rebecca Alice (GOODALE) LOWELL.  Nathaniel was merchant with general stores in various locations within Kennebunk, York, Maine over the years from 1793-1817; he was in partnership with Mr. Hackett from 1800-1809.[1]  He was described as genial, active and enterprising.[2]  Nathaniel was in command of a company of horses, I would assume it means he was in the Calvary.[3]

Abigail KIMBALL was born 23 July 1772 in Wells, York, Maine; also listed as 23 July 1772.[4]  She was the daughter of James and Elizabeth (GILPATRICK) KIMBALL.  She died at the home of her son John, 11 February 1849 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[5]  Abigail married Captain Nathaniel FROST 28 June 1798 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[6]  Nathaniel was born 22 January 1774 in Kittery, York, Maine.[7]  He was the son of Brigadier General John and Mary (NOWELL) FROST.  He died either 13 October 1817 or 21 October 1817 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[8]

Abigail and Nathaniel had the following children:

  1. Boy FROST born 10 March 1799 in Wells, York, Maine.[9] He died 10 March 1799 in Wells, York, Maine.[10]  He is interred at the Unitarian Church Cemetery in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[11]  No cause was listed, but I suspect he was stillborn, due to no name on the certificates.
  2. John FROST born 25 January 1800 in Wells, York, Maine.[12] In many of the publications his birth is listed as 26 January 1800 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[13]  He died 28 December 1859 Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[14]  His body is interred at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[15]  John married Sarah Ann BURDETT 4 May 1830 in Boston, Suffolk Massachusetts by Reverent Ralph W. EMERSON.[16]  Sarah Ann was born around 1810 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.  She was the daughter of James White and Mary (RHODES) BURDETT.  She died 29 November 1882 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  She is interred at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[17]
  3. Nathaniel FROST born 14 April 1802 in Wells, York, Maine.[18] He died 29 August 1803 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[19]  He is interred at the Unitarian Church Cemetery in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[20]
  4. Sarah Elizabeth FROST born 1 April 1804 in Wells, York, Maine.[21] There are a few birth records stating a birth year of 1806, listed with the correct parents and location, but at her death her birth is listed as 1804, so it’s possible the 1806 was the year of her christening and it’s listed mistakenly as her birth.[22]  She died unmarried on 5 September 1868 in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[23]  She was interred at Woodland Cemetery in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[24]  Her probate was conducted in Cheshire County, New Hampshire.
  5. Mary Anne FROST born 28 March 1806 in Wells, York, Maine.[25] She died of paralysis on 13 June 1899 in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[26]  She is interred at Woodland Cemetery in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[27]  Mary married Henry DORR 30 November 1826.[28]  Henry was born 11 December 1779 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[29]  He was the son of Ebenezer and Abigail (CUNNINGHAM) DORR.  He died 14 August 1850 in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[30]
  6. Nathaniel FROST born 11 June 1808 in Wells, York, Maine.[31] He died 14 July 1868 in New York, New York.  He is interred at Woodland Cemetery in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[32]
  7. Abigail FROST born 2 January 1811 in Wells, York, Maine.[33] She died 8 February 1816 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[34]
