Sheriff Kimmey,
On today, the 180th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Sumter County.

Dear Sheriff John Kimmey,
I visited this page for the first time today, and I am amazed by your story. How could a man be wicked enough to run for Sheriff, and then attempt to kill you, the current Sheriff? But in the end, you gave him what he deserved, but it is a shame you had to die over something so senseless. 179 years later, I hope you rest easy knowing that you are still remembered today. Rest in Peace and thank you for your service.


PS: No hero should ever be without a reflection, and I am honored to be the first person to write one for you.
