...Following is a biographical sketch furnished by Senator Smith: Major Kimmins was born at Sittingbourne, Kent, England in 1870 and was the son of Walter Kimmins, a fruit grower and merchant of that place. Coming to Canada at the age of 18, he engaged five years later as shipper and bookkeeper with E.D.Smith of Winona, and has remained with him ever since, advancing as his employer advanced and being his right hand man. His valuable services were recognized and remunerated as the business grew, until during the past year his salary was nearly 10 times what it was at the beginning... In 1899 he married Miss Helena Bedell, of Winona, daughter of the late Jeremiah Bedell, who owned and resided on the farm now occupied by Senator Smith. His widow and two daughters, Dorothy and Gertrude, are left to mourn, with all who knew him, the loss of an honest man, the noblest work of God. (more articles in following papers)
