William Henry Kimball, the oldest son of Heber C. Kimball, earned his place in Mormon pioneer history for his bravery and gallantry in defending his family and the saints. General Kimball served in the Utah Malitia and led his men in the Indian wars. He was involved in the rescue of the Willie and Martin hancart company. He served a mission to England from 1854-1857. As one of "Brigham's boys" he was on call to serve whenever and wherever the prophet needed him. William settled in Parley's Park, where his stage station and hotel gained notoriety with travelers. He was a polygamist with five wives and twenty-five children. His house and barn still stand at Kimball's Junction near Park City, Utah.
