Lt. Timothy Kendall was born 1740 in Litchfield, New Hampshire.  He died on 26 January 1811 in Litchfield.  He was the son of Deacon Nathan Kendall of Woburn, Massachusetts. Timothy married Sally Walker, daughter of James Walker and Elizabeth Harrison, born 1749 in Bedford, New Hampshire.  He married second to Elizabeth Lund.

Timothy Kendall was the grandson of Jacob Kendall and Alice Hassell.  Jacob Kendall is my 1st cousin 10 generations removed.  Jacob's grandparents, John Kendall (1580 - 1660) and Margaret Sacherell, are my 10x great grandparents. They were early settlers of Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the area now known as Kendall Square (near the Massachusetts Institute of Technology- MIT).
