I have been researching the Kidder families from Princeton, Maine, for 7-8 years. There are still much information to be gathered. I would very much like to hear of anyone who is a descendant of John Kidder who lived much of his adult life in Calais, ME. John's first wife was Helen (Huntley) Kidder, and I believe they had five children. And, I need to find out about their lives. They were Charles Kidder (one time in Hawaii), William Kidder, John Melvin Kidder, Almira "Myra" Kidder (married Frank Dean), and Helen Kidder. After the death of Helen in 1874, John married Mrs. Jane Killman. John and Jane Kidder had a son, Joseph Lewis Kidder. ... I have met a descendant of Joseph Kidder, and he has a large extended family. In particular, Joseph Kidder's son, Lewis Estes Kidder had 12 children: Lewis Kidder, Jr., Marilyn Kidder, Vivian Kidder, Edith Kidder, James Kidder, Sydney Kidder, Irving Kidder, Gareth Kidder, Emily Kidder, Herbert Kidder, Judith Kidder, and Walter Kidder. ...... Up until the death of Lewis Estes Kidder in 1994 (buried in Franklin, ME), large family reunions were held in either Sullivan or Hancock, ME. My pen-pal would like to others to help him schedule another family reunion.
