Thomas Kimlin is of Irish birth and parentage. He was born in Armagh, Ireland, in 1838, and accompanied his parents to the United States when eight years of age. They settled in Poughkeepsie, New York, where he attended the common schools, and in 1859 graduated from the commercial department of Eastman's. Business College. In 1860 he began to read medicine privately, continuing for two years, or until he removed to Trenton in 1862, when he placed himself under the apprentice of Dr. R. N. Featherston, under whose guidance he remained until admitted as a student in the medical college of the New York University, in 1863. From this institution he received his diploma in 1865, and immediately thereafter was examined by the United States board of army surgeons, and appointed acting army surgeon and assigned for duty to the field hospital of the Fifth army corps, at City Point, Virginia, where he served until the close of the war. After his return to Trenton in 1865, he formed a partnership with Dr. W. R. Berry, and they practiced together until his removal to Lindley in 1866, where he carried on the drug business in addition to the practice of medicine. Six years later, in 1872, he again located in Trenton, where he has since remained, engaged in the drug business and the practice of his profession. Dr. Kimlin married Miss Lonsia F. Turney, daughter of Elder Daniel Turney, of Trenton, on the 5th of October, 1865. They have six children, Henrietta, Cara, Julia, Annie, William and Walter. The family removed to Quincy, Illinois, on the first of May, 1881, that the children might receive the benefits of the excellent educational advantages of that city.
