I haven't come across anything besides speculation Tom Kimball was abused that I remember.  As far as evidence that HCK got it going, I am curious as well.  Is it simply assumed that polygamy leads to this due to the age of some of the wives or something else.

It would be a sad legacy were it true.

I want to ask a sincere question, Admin, if it is not appropriate, you can delete it.

 

I've read Lindsay Hansen Park's FB post regarding Tom Kimball.  In that post there is an assertion that Heber C. Kimball set into motion the multi generational abuse of children AKA pedophilia within the Kimball family and that Tom is just one of both its many victims and abusers within the Kimball family.  As far as I am concerned this is hearsay until there is evidence to support this assertion.  So my question:  Is there any evidence of this generational victimization and abuse within the Kimball family?

That family tree would be pretty diverse by time it got to Tom. It seems more likely it would have been one line and it would only take a grandparent and father for it to be seen as passed down. Plus it is highly unlikely they kept records. My line had a daughter that was put in a girl's home. It was eventually figured out that she had been substituted for dead mom by dad so she was the one that had to be disposed of. This was never in writing but close enough that my grandparents knew. It takes another generation or so of the stories about what a deliquent she was for people to figure out what happened. My one critique of Park is that she uses unsubstantiated random statements in her polygamy stuff.
