Gimblett (bachelor) - Brother of Mrs. George Newberry, former Jamestown resident.

At extreme right - Wm. H. Gimblett, with his three ox team, hitched to plow. Building provided living quarters in front for Uncle Will, buy back part separated by flimsy partition, housed his oxen (oxen) whose big horns could often be heard banging against the boards. Uncle Will attended Jamestown College when the campus boasted only about one building, we are told, and was a classmate of John Knauf and other Jamestown early residents. Later he attended a theological seminary in Chicago and returned to North Dakota to enter the ministry. One of his charges was the Plymouth Congregational Church of Fargo; another was in Carrington - Uncle Will was born in Canada but came to North Dakota in territorial days, became a U.S. citizen and after proving up on this claim bought more adjacent land which he continues to own until his death. He married late in life. No family. Widow still living in Residence Home in Mpls."--Printed on paper attached to back of photograph. |
