Roots of Mormonism: The Kimball Clan

24 October

Our look at this family tree had to be severely tamed – there are so many members of this clan who are notable figures in Mormonism, it’d be impossible to list all of them. For the sake of time and space, we’ve listed just a handful of who’s who!

As you might imagine, they’ve been instrumental in what makes the LDS Church what it is today.

Heber Chase & Ann Alice Gheen Kimball ~ Original LDS Apostle, parents of Andrew and Helen Mar Kimball

Helen Mar Kimball ~ Daughter of Heber & Vilate, also wife of Joseph Smith, Horace K. Whitney

Orson F. Whitney ~ Son of Helen Mar Kimball, and Horace K. Whitney, LDS Apostle

Andrew Kimball ~ Son of Heber, AZ Territorial Legislature, Pres. Indian Territory Mission

Spencer Woolley Kimball ~ Son of Andrew, 12th prophet/president

Edward L. Kimball ~ Son of Spencer, BYU Law Professor

Quotes from members of the Kimball clan –

Heber Kimball –

‘I think no more of taking another wife than I do of buying a cow’, and speaking of his late wife Vilate at her funeral he said, “There lies a woman who gave me 44 wives’.

Heber and Vilate’s great-granddaughter Natacha Rambova, was the 2ndwife of Rudolph Valentino.

Spencer W. Kimball –

Grace is a Fallacious Lie – The Miracle of Forgiveness, p. 101 “One of the most fallacious doctrines originated by Satan and propounded by man is that man is saved alone by the grace of God; that belief in Jesus Christ alone is all that is needed for salvation.”

We’re praying members of the Church will see the blasphemy Mormonism produces, and have the courage to become a true child of God by accepting the real Jesus of the Bible!

With Love in Christ;


1 Cor 1:18
