Good Morning All
Another Tidball descendant here and since we are all from Thomas and Elizabeth Brownhill Tidball in the US, I guess we are all family somehow. I have a fairly good Tidball family listing that my grandmother and her sister worked on in the early 1920's--mostly on my family line starting with John, the 3rd child of Thomas and Elizabeth. My family located in the Allegheny County PA area.
i have a couple of odd pieces that I'm not sure who they belong to, so thought i would ask here;
The first is a very well done biography of Col John Caldwell Tidball, who carries quite the resume from the armed services. He says his father is William 1796-1887 and Marie Caldwell Tidball and he was born in VA, now W VA. My line has a Wm born 1796, but they do not connect. Any idea who he belongs to?
Next I have a hand written letter from Mrs S E Kurtz Sac City Iowa dated 2/11/1922. It does not give much on her family, mostly chit chat. I think I connect her to Richard Tidball 1 st child of Thomas and Elizabeth. Would love more detail on that side of the family.
Finally, i have several hand written letters from Mrs W J Carmichael in Willoughby OH, earliest in 1921. She is from Mary Tidball 5th child of Thomas and Elizabeth, married Moses Wallace. Again not much detail on this side of the family which I would love to have.
Would be willing to share a copy of the letters, I think hand written documents from family are the closest DNA I'll get LOL
Also willing to share or compare what I have on other family members (sometimes things get a little jumbled in such large families)
