I have nothing to share about Mr. Kidder, but do have a question
concerning ships at sea.
My great, great grand passed down a carved abalone shell that has
S.Maria V carved into it along with a womans figure and various
decorations, a small extention that has a hole in it, such as to hang
it from. The "story" was of a ship that went to Australia. The family
was from England and did not immigrate to America until 1870. The
great grand was a wagon maker in Wisconsin.
Of course it is possible that the other side of the family, that
went back to 1630's in America, was the originator of this relic. Any
ideas on S. Maria V? Thanks, B. Keller
