Attest Robert Lord cler."

Moses and Aaron Pengry were prominent citizens of Ipswich. The marriage settlement of Sarah Pengry, daughter of Moses, is on record at Salem, MA. She married John, son of Robert Day, and three of her children married three children of Benjamin Kimball of Bradford, MA.

Having thus made his will he waited for the coming of the messenger who would sunder all earthly ties and take him on his eternal journey. The angel delayed not long his coming. On the twenty-second of the following June the earthly pilgrimage of Richard Kimball ended, and, aged more than eighty years, he joined the great majority.

His wife did not long survive him, but died the succeeding spring, 1 Mar 1676. Richard Kimball (1-1) was well to do for those early days. The inventory of his estate, which was taken 12 Jul 1675, and returned to court 28 Sep 1675, amounted to £737 3s 6d. He had already given to his children at their marriages.  
Kimball, Richard Sr. (I9184)
