"...The standard source regarding the number and names of Kimball's wives and children is Orson F. Whitney, The Life of Heber C. Kimball (Salt Lake City: The Kimball Family, 1888) pp. 430-36. Whitney, a gradson of Heber, made his compilation when many of Heber's wives and children were still alive and it therefore should be accurate and complete. He lists forty-five wives and sixty-five children. He does seem to have made two mistakes: he listed Sarah Buckwalter and Sarah Schuler as two individuals, which they were not, and he counted Martha McBride and Martha Knight as two, which they were not..."

"...It should be remembered that many of these "wives" were not connubial; they were "wards" whom Heber agreed to support and protect. He had children by seventeen of his wives..."
