William Pimble born 1832 Cheltenham, England, died Rhode Island, US 1909

MANY THANKS are due to Katie in the US, for very kindly providing a photograph of a key Tombstone from a Cemetery in Providence, Rhode Island that has confirmed a linking of names.

This new information, together with the new Rhode Island records available on Ancestry has enabled us to create a link between the Rhode Island PIMBLE family and the descendants of George PIMBLE. George who died in Aston, Birmingham in 1849.

This is a significant breakthrough and means we now have links of Rhode Island to the UK Midlands but also through 'Y' DNA we can link the UK Midlands PIMBLEs and to the Australian PYMBLEs. By implication therefore the Rhode Island and Australian groups are related.

There is still much research work to be done to explain some inconsistencies and obtain currently missing information but it is a great step forward. Thanks Katie
