It is important to mention that the Kime surname/maiden name has been written as Kime and Kimes. Some family members interchange the spelling.
I have not, to date, been able to locate an 1860 census report for the Kime family. However, Henry is enumerated in a Subject to do Military Service in the Civil War enumeration dated, June, 1863 for Williams County, Ohio. Henry Kimes, of Superior Township, age 30, a married farmer, was currently in service with Company K 68th Ohio Volunteer Army. It is of interest that under Henry's name is George and Levi Kimes. I have had no success tracing Henry. There is a 1850 enumeration in Seneca County, Ohio which lists both George and Levi. They could all be brothers or at a minimum, cousins.Henry C. Kime age 31, mustered in on August 26, 1862 for three years of service. He died on June 22, 1863 from wounds received on May 16, 1863 at the Battle of Champion Hills Mississippi. Records indicate that Henry is buried at Vicksburg National Cemetery in Warren County, Mississippi There is no listing for him in the roster of names. The history of the cemetery tells the sad story that many soldiers were buried without any knowledge of who they were. Those known may have only had a wooden marker, which certainly did not last long.
Known children of Henry and Sarah Kime:
- Mary Ellen Kime Greek 1854-1943
