Re: James Hill and Sarah Tidd - PA, OH
I descend from James Tidd, brother to Martin and progenitor of the Niles/Vienna Tidd's.I have the book, The Tidd's of Ohio by Howard Tidd.
I found quite a bit of info. Don't know if it will be of any help --
Sarah Tidd, b. 1774 in Pa. married James Hill of Maryland in 1797, just before moving to the new settlement of Youngstown (O) in 1798 with her family group.James Hill was a shoemaker by trade.Sarah, better known as Sally, with her husband moved to Kinsman, Ohio in 1802.In 1810 the Hills with their children moved to western Ohio into the Mad River regio of what became Logan Co.James Hill served with the armed forces of the US during the War of 1812.While her husband was in the war, Sally was forced to seek refuge in a nearby blockhouse in fear of the savage Indians of that area. In 1825 the Hill family moved into Roundhead Twp., Hardin Co. and became farmers.They remained there the rest of their lives.James Hill's father had died as a soldier in the Revolutionary War.James Hill helped organize the Methodist "Bowdle Church", and until a building could be erected, services were held in his home.Sally Hill died in 1851 at the age of 77 and James died in 1862 at age 99.They had 8 children: Martin, James, Nancy, JOhn, Samuel, Sarah, Rosanna and Mary.
The Hill family of Roundhead purchased land directly from the US land office at Bucyrus, Ohio in 1834.The deed for this land was drawn in the name of James Hill and was signed by Pres. Andrew Jackson.This deed, as well as the land was still in possession of the Hill family in the mid 1950's.
Might be able to find some more -- not sure.Hope this helps.
