Your welcome. I saw that I posted the wrong date of Henry H. Kimbell's death. He died in 1878 to make him 63 years of age on his death. There are 2 other graves that are extremely old and broken up where I can't read the complete details on them. However, I believe them to be another set of Kimbells (Husband and wife) who may be the parents of the Anne or Henry. They appear to be the first to be buried in the plot so they could date back farther than 1850.

To give you more information on Mooresville Alabama, it was one of the first cities in Alabama. At one point it could have even been the capital for a brief period of time. (About a year or two). This was around circa 1850. The capital then moved southward a few more times before settling on Montgomery. Recently, the town was the location site of the movie "Huck Fin" that came out years ago.

It would be very possible for your ancestors to have moved to Alabama to the new capital city. There is another cemetary about a mile down the road from the one I found. It's a bit larger but from the same time period. It's much more neglected. You may find more Kimbell's in the area than what I found in this small plot.
