My main research (8 yrs) is KIDDER (mainly in Maine), and I am helping someone to solve a small Kidder mystery.
Part of the mystery seems to involve a Bella or Ella KIDDER, who probably was the daughter of Calvin and Miranda (McLaughlin) Kidder of Princeton, ME (and the Indian Township).I believe she was born around 1870 in Princeton or Calais, ME.
In the on-line "Maine Archives: Marriages," I found mention of a marriage between a ..Hugh DOW .. and a Bella Kidder on 7/2/1904.The marriage probably took place in Calais, ME.
I know absolutely nothing about this Hugh DOW .. and am just starting to search for information on him ..
(I am hoping to find out if Bella Kidder gave birth to a son in 1892, whose birth-name was James C. McLellan.)
