Andrew Kimbley was not born in Holland, like most Germans leaving the German states at that time he probably departed from the port of Rotterdam or maybe Amsterdam and the German word for German sounds like dutch, hence the confusion. He was a man who saw many famous people and events and we are all proud to be his descendants. He was in Kentucky prior to Geo. R. Clark, he personally knew Daniel Boone. He had the first white male child born in Kentucky, born had the first child which was a daughter. For a period he even rented property from the famous John Fitch, true inventor of the steamboat. etc. You have a great ancestor!
