THE MORMON CONNECTION
Heber Chase Kimball – Mormon Missionary Apostle
Although the Mormon church had no significance in Sheldon as a practicing denominations, one of its first apostles Heber Chase Kimball lived here in his early years after his birth on June 14, 1801 in a home one mile north of Sheldon village on the Missisquoi River. In 1975 the Mormon Church purchased a lot in the Sheldon Creek Cemetery and erected a monument in memory of him. It reads in part” Heber Chase Kimball was a member of the original quorum of the twelve apostles of the church. He died in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1869.” The “Kimball” family, including Norman Kimball proprietor of Black Creek Press remain proud of this relative.
