Thank you for that look-up. That's interesting. I wonder who the
researcher is who is studying Francis and Lucy (?) KIDDER's family.
I can offer information on these men if anyone is interested.
I don't remember whether I already mentioned that Thomas KIDDER (grandson
of James, son of John) died the "day" that Westford annexed off of
Chelmsford. It is thought that Joanna was pregnant with their 5th son
when that happened, and that was Francis. The oldest was Thomas "Cornet"
KIDDER, and then the middle sons, Reuben, Aaron, and Joseph, moved to New
Ipswich. Joanna remarried to Samuel FITCH and had more children. This
extended family remained in the Westford area.
FYI: This is the other Francis' parents:
28 FRANCIS KIDDER (Enoch, James), of Oxford and Sutton, both in Worcester
Co., Mass., born at Billerica, Middlesex Co., Mass., 1 Oct. 1703; died at
Oxford, Mass., 20 Oct. 1763. He married at Billerica, 24 Feb. 1730,
ELIZABETH HILL, born 14 May 1711; died at Sutton, Mass., 31 Jan. 1805,
daughter of Jonathan and Mary (Brackett) Hill.
