Marshall Bruce Kimbrough



Marshall Bruce Kimbrough of Harris County, Georgia (1845 - 1911).

This picture was taken by Marshall Kimbrough's son-in-law William M. Jenkins of Atlanta. Uncle Will wrote a note with a picture which says, "Hon. M. B. Kimbrough, Sheriff Harris County. This picture was taken by W. M. Jenkins, Jun 26, 1906, some 5 or 6 miles from Chipley, Ga., with a camera tripod bought of a friend in Augusta. The picture above is made by Alfa Lomax from the original which I have and from which I had several made, including one for all brothers and sister of my wife. Far as I know, this is the only picture extant of Mr. Kimbrough -- the man everybody loved. He was my constant companion and friend. He was a true friend, and I truly loved him. He was a great lover of horses and could ride as straight as any one I ever knew. W. M. J."
