Looking for information regarding my great, great, great grandfather's days in Red Bluff when he founded the First Baptist Church. I have the information from the "Moore & Elliot 1880 History of Tehama County, Book One" but there might be information else where that I may not of able to locate.
Rev. William Samuel Kidder married Mary Elizabeth McFarlin in Shasta County. Also I am searching for data on his family as well. Rev. W.S. Kidder is also responsable for the naming of the town Ono and establishing various churches in that county. One well known church he established in 1880 is the First Baptist Church on Eureka Way in Redding. He was also Shasta County Assessor about 1880 or so.
Any information regarding his days in Red Bluff is appreciated. Thanks,
