Biography Henry and Christina's son Isaac Kimmel was born on December 15, 1822, in Jewett, Harrison County, Ohio. As a child, he contracted smallpox--he survived but was left with an oddly shaped nose tip due to a "pox" on the end of it. On March 24, 1845, he married twenty-seven year old Amy Sawvel, daughter of John Jacob Sawvel and Margaret Epley, in Harrison County, Ohio. Their children Jacob and Margaret were born there over the next few years later. In 1848, the Kimmels moved to Lick Creek Township, Van Buren County, Iowa, with Amy's family, and their daughters Lydia, Sarah "Sadie," and Mary Martha were born there. In 1857, they again moved with her family, traveling through the Missouri and Indian Territory to Hillsboro, Texas. They had a great deal of trouble with the Indians there, so they again relocated--this time to Collierville, Shelby County, Tennessee, where Isaac worked as a grocer. In 1862, he was conscripted into the Rebel army, possibly serving in Company C of the 42nd Infantry Regiment, which fought General Grant at Fort Donelson, Tennessee from February 11-16, 1862. Isaac died on February 22, 1862, and was buried in an unknown grave.

Amy Kimmel's obituary states that at different times during the war, the Kimmel house was used as a Union Headquarters for General Sherman (who was also from Ohio) and as a hospital where Amy and the children would help tend the sick and wounded. A fort was also built on the farm near their house, but its location remains unknown today. During one engagement, General Sherman repaired to the fort but told Amy to close all doors and keep quiet, or the Rebels would shell the house too. On another occasion, six shell holes were found in the wall over the place where Amy's daughter Lydia had been lying sick on the couch.

Amy and the children remained on the farm in Tennessee for most of the war, but in 1864 when the Union troops left the house, she was afraid to remain and returned to Ohio, settling near Columbus. In 1870, she moved to Darke County, Ohio, and by 1880 she was living with her daughter Margaret Sebring and son-in-law in Allen Township, Darke County, Ohio. Amy died on August 23, 1892, in Rossville, Allen Township, Darke County, Ohio, and is buried in Webster Cemetery, Allen Township, Darke County, Ohio.
