I'd like to know if anyone is researching the Fenlason families who were living in .. Princeton, MAINE .. in the late 1800's.
My main research is KIDDER, and I am trying to find out what happened .. to the widow of Calvin KIDDER (1765-1799).Calvin traveled from NH to NB in 1783 or 1784, and seems to have settled in what is now St. Stephen, NB.In 1798, he married .. Miss or Mrs. Mary Mercy GREENLAW(handwriting in church records is difficult to read)..
In Jan. 1799, they had a son, J. Calvin Kidder.In Feb. 1799, the father, Calvin Kidder, was killed in a boating accident.His widow, Mrs. Mary Kidder, seems to have "disappeared into thin air."...One of my guesses is that she re-married .. about a year after her husband's death, and she might have used her former or maiden name, Mary GREENLAW(1801 or 1802).
In 1803, Nathaniel D. FENLASON married a Mary GREENLAW in Alexander, Maine.Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether Mary could have been Calvin Kidder's widow?
If so, she would have had a 3 or 4 year old son at the time, J. Calvin Kidder.I would very much like to find out where young "Calvin" grew up ..St. Andrews or St. Stephen ..in NB, or in Calais or Princeton, ME.
I have researched the Kidder's for 8-9 years, so I know there were Fenlason families living in Princeton .. the same time the Kidder families lived there.
